Botox Injections for Wrinkle Reduction

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

These injections are generally used for the treatment of forehead lines, frown lines, crow feet, bunny lines, gummy smile, jaw line reduction and neck lines. The procedure entails injection of small amounts of toxin either into the muscle or under the skin. It can take up to 2 weeks for the full effects of medicine to become apparent and the effects can last between 3 to 4 months.

What is Botox and who can it help?

The majority of people know botulinum toxin as Botox. But Botox is not actually a generic name, it's trademarked by Allergan. Botulinum toxin is a really useful medical treatment for people who have dynamic facial lines. Dynamic lines are those lines that show when we make facial expressions. In contrast with dynamic lines or wrinkles are what we refer to as 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:

Botox works most effectively for individuals who have dynamic wrinkles. People from their mid twenties onwards are ideal candidates for having procedure, particularly if you have a dynamic wrinkle which is deep when moving your muscles during facial expression.

Once individuals are in their late fifties or early sixties and have a great deal of static lines, Botox can still work for them, however the effectiveness of reducing the depth of the lines is sometimes reduced. For people in their late fifties or onwards, it is not always feasible to completely eliminate deep facial lines. So, an ideal consumer for botulinum toxin treatments would be individuals in their late twenties, thirties, and forties, but is not restricted to that age range.

If you have just started to get very deep wrinkles when you use your facial muscles or if you recently started to develop permanent facial wrinkles, specifically lines which exist even when you don't use your face muscles, then you may be a great candidate for Botox injection procedures.
