What is Botox and who can it help?
Most people know botulinum toxin as Botox. But Botox is not actually a generic name, it’s trademarked by Allergan. Botulinum toxin is a very useful treatment for people who have dynamic lines. Dynamic lines are those lines which appear only when we make facial expressions. In contrast to dynamic lines or wrinkles are what we call static wrinkles. Static wrinkles or static lines are facial lines which are present regardless of whether or not we are using our muscles of facial expression.
The ideal candidate for Botox injections:
Botox works best on people who have dynamic wrinkles. So, people from their mid-twenties onwards are ideal candidates for having a Botox treatment, especially if you have a dynamic wrinkle which is deep when you move your muscles during facial expression.
Once people are in their late fifties or early sixties and they have a lot of static lines, botulinum toxin can still work for them, but the effectiveness of reducing the depth of the lines is sometimes lower. For people in their late fifties or onwards, it not always possible to completely remove deep wrinkles. So, an ideal candidate for Botox treatments would be people in their late twenties, thirties, and forties, but is by no means limited to that age range.
If you have just started to get very deep lines when you use your facial muscles or if you recently started to develop permanent lines, that is lines which are present even when you do not use your facial expression muscles, then you could be a great candidate for Botox injection treatments.
