Botox injections are a non-surgical treatment designed at reducing and altogether getting rid of deep lines and wrinkles that appear on the face as we age. Botox also prevents new lines from forming by relaxing the facial muscles and reducing excessive facial movements. Botox is Allergan’s trade-name for the protein and neurotoxin ‘Botolinum Toxin’.
There’s no mistaking that facial wrinkles are a sign of age or skin damage. They are lines in the skin caused by repeated muscular activity. Over time, these lines become permanent due to a combination of the repetitive creasing effect and loss of collagen and elastin in skin as it ages. Frowning, smiling or squinting will produce three predictable and familiar facial wrinkle patterns which can all be treated by the use of Botox:
Glabellar wrinkles – vertical frown lines which develop at the top (bridge) of the nose, between the eyebrows.
Forehead lines – horizontal lines produced by the frontalis muscle in the forehead repeatedly lifting the eye brows. The wrinkles usually appear in people in their forties and above, and are more pronounced if you have low brows and excess upper eyelid skin.
Crow’s feet wrinkles – the fine wrinkling lines radiating outwards from the eyes, formed over time by squinting and smiling.
