BOTOX® treatment has been found to be safe and effective at minimizing signs of facial aging like crow’s feet, frown lines, and horizontal forehead lines. Only small amounts are needed to correct what is known as dynamic wrinkles. These are the types of wrinkles that are formed when underlying muscles contract, like when you squint or frown.
BOTOX® is a type of injection that is typically used for the correction of horizontal forehead wrinkles, squint lines, smile lines, and frown lines. The product works by temporarily relaxing the muscles underlying these types of wrinkles so that they become less prominent.
Many thousands of patients have been treated with BOTOX® injections, making it one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the United States. The treatment has been used safely in both medical and cosmetic applications for over two decades. It has been approved by the FDA for anti-aging applications, as well as for the treatment of other issues.
What are the Advantages?
Unlike some other types of injections, BOTOX® does not have any systemic effects. It works and stays where we need it for the correction of facial wrinkles. It does not travel anywhere else in your body and will gradually be broken down after multiple months.
The results of BOTOX® injections typically last for months. Eventually, less product may be needed to maintain the temporarily relaxed muscles. Since every patient is an individual with different genetics, lifestyle, and biochemistry, there is no way to know precisely how each person will respond and how long their results will last.
Although BOTOX® is extremely effective at minimizing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, it is not the only method used for the treatment of lines and wrinkles appearing on the face. It is important to explore these other treatment options as well.
