Botox Injections for Reduction of Wrinkles

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

These types of injections are typically 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 quantities of toxin either into the muscular tissue or under the skin. It can take up to 2 weeks for the full effects of the procedure to appear and the results can last between three to four months.

What is Botox and who could it help?

Most individuals 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 an extremely useful treatment method for people who have dynamic lines. Dynamic lines are those lines which show only 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 show regardless of whether or not we are using our muscles of facial expression.

The ideal 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 botulinum toxin procedure, especially if you have a dynamic wrinkle which seems deep when you move your muscles throughout facial expression.

When individuals are in their late fifties or early sixties and have a great deal of static lines, Botox can still work for them, but the effectiveness of reducing the deepness of the wrinkles can be lower. For people in their late 50’s or onwards, it not always achievable to completely remove deep lines. So, an ideal customer for Botox treatments would be individuals in their late twenties, thirties, and forties, but is by no means restricted to this age range.

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