Botox Wrinkle Treatment
While numerous anti-aging creams continue to flood the market, Botox injections have become an excellent and highly reliable solution for reducing the visibility of wrinkles, while also serving as a preventative measure for future wrinkles. For patients with a permanent frown or facial features that make them look sad or tired, Botox treatments provide a lifting effect in one non-surgical and budget-friendly procedure.
To better understand, Botox blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles. This weakens the muscle, causing it to relax. On the outside, wrinkles appear softened and even disappear. While some have voiced concerns regarding the safety of Botox injections, it’s important to understand that while Botox is produced from a form of the botulinum toxin, it is a purified protein, completely sterile, and contains an excellent safety profile. In fact, Botox has been used throughout the medical community for over 30 years.

Who Can Benefit From Botox?
For patients that would like to improve the appearance of wrinkles such as forehead lines, frown lines, or crow’s feet without the cost and downtime associated with surgery, Botox injections represent an exciting option. Even so, the benefits of Botox vary from person to person. For this reason, the medical and dental community note that the best candidates for Botox are individuals who are at least 18 years old, physically healthy, not pregnant or nursing, and have no history of neuromuscular disease, including multiple sclerosis.
In turn, those with thick facial skin, deep scarring, drooping eyelids, or skin disorders are typically not good candidates for Botox.
For the most part, patients seeking early intervention using Botox injections benefit the most, as do those with less signs of advanced aging.
