Botox for Fine Lines and Wrinkle Reduction

As we age, some wrinkles, like crows feet, become more noticeable and stubborn to get rid of.  Fortunately, Botox Cosmetic can erase those wrinkles and give your skin a smoother, more youthful appearance. Botox Cosmetic (Botulinum toxin Type A) is a safe, FDA approved treatment that relaxes the muscles into which it is injected. It is most commonly used on the upper face to reduce “expression lines” and wrinkles.

How Does Botox Work?

Small amount of Botox Cosmetic is injected with very few tiny injections into the areas of muscles responsible for the wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic blocks the release of the chemical that causes these muscles to contract. That in turn results in to the relaxations of those muscles which is causing the wrinkles.

Treatment lasts about three to four months, and you will see the results slowly going away. You may need to return for follow up and repeat the procedure.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

Frown lines, crow’s feet wrinkles in the forehead and Perioral wrinkles caused by the repetitive contraction of the muscles of expression on the face causes, the skin to fold and causes wrinkles. These lines or wrinkles call dynamic wrinkles can be best treated with Botox cosmetic.

During your initial consultation at our office, the doctor or nurse injector will decide how much and where to inject Botox depending on your facial muscle anatomy and muscle mass. Those with stronger muscles or more wrinkles may need a larger doses (more units) of Botox.
