Wrinkles are formed because of repetitive contractions and dermal atrophy in the underlying facial musculature. Botulinum toxin is a power neurotoxin which inhibits the release of acetylcholine at a neuromuscular level. Localized relaxation can be caused by injecting botulinum toxin in small quantities within specific muscles.
Overlying skin will be smoothened as a result reducing wrinkles. Effects of Botox take about 2 weeks for developing fully. Results can last anywhere from 3 – 4 months. Dramatic results can be seen in dynamic wrinkles as compared to static wrinkles that are visible in resting face. Experts have performed jaw sculpting by using Botox injections.

Botox can Renew Confidence
Botox has an impressive ability of renewing the appearance of wrinkles in a short space of time. Generally, patients get the procedure when they have an important event, such as anniversary, graduation, or wedding. There are no significant after effects or downtime in Botox. You don’t need any aftercare for revitalizing your looks or regaining confidence.
You don’t need to wait for dynamic wrinkles to get Botox done. Regular and early use of Botox can help prevent cracks from developing in the collagen layer of the skin. Preventative treatments can be useful in relaxing specific muscles, which care responsible for creating dynamic wrinkles.

Botox is a useful tool for treating dynamic wrinkles, such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and perioral wrinkles. The treatment is not effective in reducing the generic loss of facial volume and appearance of static wrinkles. This is best done through dermal fillers or other skin tightening methods.
