Botox Injections for Wrinkle Reduction

Wrinkle reduction procedure using Botulinum toxin A (typically known as Botox ®). These reduce the appearance of wrinkles and result in a much smoother appearance.

These types of injections are commonly used for the treatment of forehead wrinkles, frown lines, crow feet, bunny lines, gummy smile, jaw line reduction and neck lines. The treatment entails injection of small volumes of toxin either into the muscle tissue or under the skin. It can take up to 2 weeks for the full effects of the procedure to appear and effects can last as long as three to four months.

What is Botox and who could it help?

The majority of people know of botulinum toxin as Botox. But Botox is not actually a generic name, it is trademarked by a company called Allergan. Botulinum toxin is a really useful procedure for people who have dynamic lines. Dynamic lines are those lines which appear when we make facial expressions. In contrast to dynamic lines or wrinkles are what we refer to as static wrinkles. Static wrinkles or static lines are facial lines which are present whether or not we are using our muscles of facial expression.

The ideal candidate for Botox injections:

Botox works most effectively for individuals who have dynamic wrinkles. People from their mid twenties onwards are ideal candidates for having a botox treatment, especially if you have a dynamic line which seems deep when moving your muscles during facial expression.

When people are in their late 50’s or early 60’s and they have a lot of static lines, botulinum toxin can still work for them, however, the effectiveness of reducing the deepness of the lines can sometimes be reduced. For individuals in their late 50’s or onwards, it is not always achievable to completely eliminate deep static lines. An ideal candidate for botulinum toxin treatments would be individuals in their late twenties, thirties, and forties, but is not limited to that age range.

If you have just begun to get deep lines when you use your facial muscles or if you recently started to develop permanent wrinkles, that is lines which exist when you don’t use your facial muscles, then you might be a great candidate for Botox injection treatments.
