What is Botox?
Botox, an injectable solution of botulinum toxin A is safe to use in small doses. It was introduced to the cosmetic world in 2002 and got FDA approval. Previously it was used to treat migraines and other medical conditions like eye twitching. Now, it is performing wonders in smoothening wrinkles and fine lines. Botox temporarily freezes the underlying muscles, limits facial movement, and softens the effects of static wrinkles. Getting regular Botox injections can help you prolong the need for surgical procedures.
Botox for the Treatment of Static and Dynamic Wrinkles
Dynamic wrinkles are only visible when you move your facial muscles. They naturally release when you relax your face. Conversely, static wrinkles are always noticeable with or without facial movement.
Botox treats dynamic wrinkles and softens the appearance of certain static wrinkles. Emotions such as worry, sadness, fear, and joy are all facial expressions caused by muscle movements. The main ones are the frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and smile lines. Botox is highly effective in diminishing dynamic wrinkles. It also helps lift the eyebrows and treats the bunny lines, smoker’s lines, and dimpling on the chin.
Static wrinkles are usually caused by collagen loss, sun damage, and the pull of gravity. They can be best treated with dermal fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane, which adds volume and soften away the signs of aging from the inside out.
