BOTOX® has been used safely and successfully for wrinkle therapy since its 2002 FDA cosmetic approval. Botox Cosmetic, the proven wrinkle relaxer to soften and reduce frown lines, help lift brows and smooth crow's feet is now used for many other beauty treatments.
A few drops of BOTOX® are injected with a tiny needle into the muscle that creates a wrinkle. When BOTOX® is injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area, and as a result, the muscle weakens. As the muscle weakens, the skin overlying the muscle relaxes and the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and often disappear. BOTOX® treatment does not affect normal facial expressions.
Botox temporarily blocks the signals that would normally tell your muscles to contract. If a specific muscle can't move, it can't cause a wrinkle and, in most cases, wrinkles are nearly invisible in a week.
Side effects of BOTOX® are minimal, with slight discomfort upon injection of the solution. This may be minimized by the use of a numbing cream one hour prior to the injection. Bruising at the sight of injection may occur. One percent of patients develop a slight lowering or ptosis of one eyelid and, also rarely, asymmetry of facial expression. These effects are temporary.
Frown lines are the dynamic wrinkles between the brows caused by the contraction of corrugator and/or procerus muscles. Crow's feet are the wrinkles around your eyes caused by smiling and squinting.
Movement of corrugator, procerus and orbicularis oculi muscles can cause the skin between the brows and around the eyes to crease. As skin becomes less elastic over time, repeated contraction of these muscles may create visible lines and wrinkles.
