How Does Botox Treat Wrinkles?Botox targets dynamic wrinkles caused by contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles every time you smile, laugh or frown. The more emotion you show the deeper these wrinkles and lines are likely to be. Left untreated these lines may become permanent.
Frown lines, crows feet, and forehead lines can be dramatically softened or eliminated with Botox injections. This procedure, known as a cosmetic chemodenervation, uses botulinum toxin to temporarily relax the muscles that cause these skin wrinkles to form.
Botox can improve or eliminate:
- Worry lines
- Frown lines
- Laugh lines
- Crow's feet
How Do Botox Injections Work?
Botox injections block impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles that are related to specific expression lines, causing the muscles to relax and blocking their contraction. Extremely small amounts of Botox are injected into the offending muscles, and over 4-7 days (but up to 2 weeks) these muscles respond less to stimulus until they either fail to respond or respond minimally to stimulus. After treatment, the overlying skin becomes smooth and unwrinkled, while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to occur.
