Botox Injections for Reduction of Wrinkles

Wrinkle reduction procedures using Botulinum toxin A (commonly known as Botox ®). These reduce the appearance of wrinkles and leave you with a smoother appearance.

These kinds of injections are regularly used for the treatment of forehead wrinkles, frown lines, crow feet, bunny lines, gummy smile, jaw line reduction and neck lines. The treatment involves injection of small quantities of toxin either into the muscular tissue or under the skin. It can take up to 2 weeks for full effects of the procedure to become apparent and the effects can last up to 3 to 4 months.

What is Botox and who could it help?

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

The ideal candidate for Botox injections:

Botulinum toxin works most effectively for individuals who have dynamic wrinkles. So, people from their mid twenties onwards are ideal candidates for having a botulinum toxin treatment, especially if you have a dynamic line which is deep when moving your muscles throughout facial expression.

When people are in their late fifties or early sixties and have a lot of static lines, Botox can still work for them, however, the effectiveness of decreasing the depth of the lines is sometimes reduced. For individuals in their late 50’s or onwards, it not always feasible to completely remove deep lines. So, an ideal candidate for botulinum toxin procedures would be people in their late twenties, thirties, and forties, but is not restricted to this age range.

If you have begun to get deep wrinkles when you use your facial muscles or if you recently started to develop permanent wrinkles, that is lines which exist even when you do not use your face muscles, then you might be a great candidate for Botox injection procedures.
