Anti-Wrinkle Treatment (BOTOX®)
BOTOX is a registered trade name which has become known as the more common & generic term for Botulinum Toxin.
The substance can be injected into the skin in small, measured & safe quantities to inhibit muscle movement within the target area which, has the effect of assisting in preventing wrinkles from developing or worsening and, will promote the appearance of smoother looking skin.
There is no upper-age limit for using the treatment to rejuvenate your face, the only considerations are health and skin tone.
So long as your skin still has reasonable elasticity, it should respond well to muscle relaxation with Botox.
By relaxing the glabellar muscles that cause the “frown” lines that are bothering you, treatments allow the overlying skin to smooth out & can also be used to minimize or stop crow's feet wrinkles around the eyes.
In cases where the patient suffers deep creases or wrinkles in the glabellar, on the forehead or underneath the eyes, it may be necessary to first employ some resurfacing techniques.
Where the wrinkles are deep, treatments can be incorporated with the use of hyaluronic-acid based fillers to further improve results.
