The Advantage of Treating Wrinkles with Botox

BOTOX® is FDA approved for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe wrinkles of the frown lines on the face. It has been used over a decade and functions by relaxing the muscles that it is injected into. It is generally used to treat frown line between the eyebrows, forehead lines, crow’s feet around the eyes, bunny lines on the nose, smokers lines around the mouth and dents in the chin. It can be injected on the lateral side of eyebrows, giving the eyebrow a lift at the lateral corner. Similarly, it can also be used to raise the corners of the mouth.

Treating Wrinkles with BOTOX®

  • Botox requires no sedation or anesthesia during treatment.
  • Botox corrects underlying muscles (as opposed to the skin’s surface or skin’s sub-layer the way peels do).
  • Botox reduces horizontal creases in forehead. Reduces frown lines.
  • Botox minimizes the look of crows’ feet and laugh lines.
  • Botox provides dramatic effects.
  • Botox effects are customizable and reversible.
  • Some patients report they no longer get migraine headaches after Botox treatments.

How does it work?

First: A few drops of BOTOX® are injected with a tiny needle into the muscle that creates a wrinkle. When BOTOX® is injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area, and as a result, the muscle weakens. As the muscle weakens, the skin overlying the muscle relaxes and the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and often disappear. BOTOX® treatment does not effect normal facial expressions.

Botulinum Toxin Type “A” (BOTOX® Cosmetic) is a protein complex produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, which contains the same toxin that causes food poisoning. When used in a medical setting as an injectable form of sterile, purified botulinum toxin, small doses block the release of a chemical called acetylcholine by nerve cells that signal muscle contraction. By selectively interfering with the underlying muscles’ ability to contract, existing frown lines are smoothed out and, in most cases, are nearly invisible in a week.

Basically, the botulinum toxins block the signals that would normally tell your muscles to contract. If a specific muscle can’t move, it can’t cause a wrinkle.
