What wrinkles can Botox treat?


Botox can treat some but not all facial wrinkles. There are two common forms of wrinkles: dynamic and static wrinkles. Lack of collagen in elasticity in the skin, or damage caused by smoking or the sun, can cause static wrinkles. Static wrinkles cause facial changes as skin becomes drier and thinner. Botox may be recommended to treat static wrinkles; however, other treatments may be used instead of or in addition to Botox which would produce stronger results.
 
The other type of wrinkles develop over time as a result of muscle movements like a squint, laugh, or smile, these are called dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles like crow’s feet causing lines on the forehead and around the eyes are very common. The botulinum toxin used in Botox relaxes or temporarily paralyzes muscle activity and can be an effective treatment for dynamic wrinkles. Botox can rejuvenate the appearance by smoothing wrinkles and creating a youthful appearance.
 
There are many things’ patients should know about what Botox can do and what its limitations are in order to determine whether this treatment is the right option for them. You can find more information on the Assure Wellness Group website or call today to make an appointment with a qualified dermatologist who will work with you to determine the best way to restore your youthful appearance and minimize wrinkles.

Is Botox approved for wrinkles?


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved all forms of Botox injections as a treatment for forehead wrinkles. Botox is safe to use and is a popular option to restore a youthful appearance and combat facial wrinkles. If patients elect to discontinue their use of Botox after it has begun their skin will return to the condition it was in prior to the use of Botox and facial muscle movement and strength will return to its pre-Botox level of functionality.
 
Botox injections can be used for the treatment of other conditions such as excessive sweating, lazy eye, overactive bladder, neck spasms, and sometimes chronic migraines. People who see the most benefit from the cosmetic effects of Botox are those aged 65 and younger according to studies.
 
Older adults can achieve similar or better results as those aged 65 and younger if they use Botox injections in combination with other treatments. Botox has been demonstrated to be safe in the long and short term, but it is important treatments are administered by a trained health care provider such as a dermatologist. For older adults to achieve similar results as younger patients, then it is recommended that Botox be used in combination with facial fillers injected into the skin to soften wrinkles.

What is a Botox cosmetic treatment?


Botox is a brand name of toxin used to treat wrinkles and facial creases. Botox is produced by Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium. Botox restores a much more youthful appearance in a patient by simply blocking signals from the nerves. The treatment prevents the muscles from contracting and relaxing them as a result. The wrinkles then soften and relax. Botox is most commonly used on crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines; it can also be used for the mouth, neck, chin, and lip lines. Some wrinkles will not respond to Botox on their own such as those caused by sun damage.
