There are two kinds of wrinkles on the face. The expression wrinkles, and the ageing ones.
The expression wrinkles are caused by the person's mimicry being more noticeable on people with strong facial expressions.

These are:

  • Periorbicular wrinkles or crows feet
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Creases on the forehead


All these can be treated with Botox®

Botulinum toxin - Botox®, is a popular non-surgical injection that relaxes certain facial mimic's expression muscles. Reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that Botox® is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.

By relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles, the skin tightens reducing or eliminating wrinkles.

Also, by selectively modifying the muscular tone, the position of the eyebrows can be changed, improving the expression. This treatment is called chemical lift.
The effect of Botox® is temporary and the muscles will go back to their usual state making wrinkles reappear.

The most common complication is paralysis of the muscle that raises the upper eyelid causing difficulty lifting the eyelid blocking the vision. This is a temporary side effect that can be prevented by the proper administration of the product.

Wrinkles on the nasogenic furrows, the corner of the mouth and lips could be caused by the facial mimicry. Since their treatment with Botox® would affect the personal facial expressions it is recommended to treat with other type of substances.

To summarize we can conclude that Botox® treatment yields excellent results with minimal complications when administered by experienced doctors.
