Botox Injections for Reduction of Wrinkles

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

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

What is Botox and who can it be of benefit to?

Most individuals know of botulinum toxin as Botox. But Botox is not actually a generic name, it’s trademarked by a firm called Allergan. Botulinum toxin is a really useful medical treatment for people who have dynamic facial lines. Dynamic lines are those lines that show 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 regardless of whether or not we are using our muscles of facial expression.

The most suitable candidate for Botox injections:

Botulinum toxin works most effectively for people who have dynamic wrinkles. So, people from their mid-twenties onwards are ideal candidates for having a botox procedure, particularly if you have a dynamic line which is deep when you move your muscles throughout facial expression.

Once individuals are in their late 50’s or early 60’s and have a great deal of static lines, Botox can still work for them, however, the effectiveness of reducing the depth of the wrinkles is sometimes reduced. For individuals in their late 50’s or onwards, it’s not always possible to completely eliminate deep static facial lines. So, an ideal consumer for botulinum toxin procedures 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 lines when you use your facial muscles or if you recently started to develop permanent facial wrinkles, specifically lines which exist when you don’t use your face muscles, then you might be a great candidate for Botox injection procedures.
