Anti-Wrinkle injections such as derma filler or Botox® are one of our most popular methods for anti-wrinkle treatment. Wrinkles can be successfully treated with a protein based solution called Botulinum, of which Botox® is a trade name. In Cosmetic use the amount of Botulinum used is small and proven to be extremely safe. The solution reversibly weakens the muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles which are lines that appear when you animate your face. Static wrinkles are lines that appear at rest; these do not usually improve with Botox® and may be best treated with Dermal Fillers from Juvéderm.
What Types of Wrinkles can be treated?
There are three main types of wrinkles that can be treated with Botox® in the upper face.
Frown wrinkles (Glabella wrinkles) are most commonly seen in patients with excessive sun exposure and those who are over active in the use of these muscles, often associated through frowning. Frown wrinkles are vertical lines and can signal emotions such as anger, anxiety or fear. Frown wrinkles can be successfully treated with Botox®.
Forehead wrinkles appear in horizontal lines in the area between the eyebrows and the hairline. These wrinkles are formed during facial expressions that convey emotions such as surprise or empathy.
Eye Wrinkles (Crow’s Feet)
Crow’s Feet wrinkles (Peri-orbiltal wrinkles) are in the outer corner of the eyes and appear more prominent when laughing or smiling. Crow’s Feet Wrinkles can result from excessive sun exposure combined with the skin becoming less elastic with age.
Other Uses for Botox®
Not only are Botox® injections used to improve your fine lines, it also has several health benefits as Botox® is used medically for treating migraines. If you have a habit of grinding your teeth at night having Botox® injected into your jaw muscles can help alleviate jaw clenching. If you suffer from excessive under arm perspiration or Hyperhidrosis you could also benefit from Botox® injections.
