Botox Treatment for Wrinkles and Facial Lines

How Do Facial Lines and Wrinkles Form?

No matter how hard we try, aging is a fight none of us can win—unless someone eventually finds the legendary Fountain of Youth. By our mid to late 20s, our skin starts to become a little drier, losing its natural moisture, and we begin to see the first appearance of facial lines. By our thirties, we begin to lose elasticity, and our wrinkles and lines gradually become more pronounced. It is usually around this age that men and women begin to consider Botox.

As we age naturally, our faces develop two different types of wrinkles: dynamic and fine surface lines.

  • Dynamic wrinkles are the deep creases and folds caused by underlying facial muscles that move when you frown, squint, smile and laugh. We are all born with dynamic wrinkles. They are the creases around the eyes (crow’s feet) and lips (marionette lines), as well as the frontal lines across your forehead and the glabellar lines between your eyebrows (your frown lines).
  • Fine surface lines develop when the collagen and elastin in your skin starts to thin with age. Years of exposure to the sun’s harmful rays leads to our skin becoming less elastic. Staying out of the sun and taking care of your skin will decrease your chancesof premature wrinkles, but these lines are caused by genetics and aging and are unavoidable.

Botox isannon-invasive, nonsurgical treatment most effective on dynamic wrinkles, those that haven’t set yet, by blocking the nerves that contract the muscles and softening the appearance of wrinkles.

What is Botox?

We all know the injection botulinum toxin better in brand name form by Botox®, though there are other brands too such as Dysport® or Xeomin®. Botox injections are used reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing specific muscles in the face.

No longer a facial treatment exclusive to Hollywood celebrities, Botox has become the top nonsurgical cosmetic choice in recent years. First approved in 2002, the “anti-aging” solution of Botox injections has only continued to rise in popularity.

Who Can Get Botox for Wrinkles?

If you are healthy and over the age of 18, you are eligible for Botox treatment for wrinkles. If you have any skin conditions in the areas you are considering for Botox—acne, pimples or rashes—it may be worth waiting until these have completely healed before your injections.

If you’re pregnant, breastfeeding or have plans to become pregnant, please discuss Botox with your GP before treatment. Other people who should avoid Botox are those who:

  • Have a neuromuscular disease (such as multiple sclerosis or myasthenia gravis)
  • Have significant scarring near the area
  • Have ptosis (drooping eyelids)

Botox treatment for wrinkles involves tiny quantities of the toxin injected directly into affected muscles. For example, it takes between three to five small injections to treat the frown line between the eyebrows. Each injection is painless; the equivalent of an ant bite. You will begin to see the aftereffects of your Botox injections after around three to four days, and you will continue to see improvements for a further two weeks when you’ll finally see the results at their best.

On average, Botox treatment for wrinkles lasts between three to six months, though everyone is individual. Results will last longer with ongoing treatments.
