Botulinum toxin injections became so popular that even people not interested in beauty have heard about it. Among famous brands are BOTOX®, Dysport®, also can be called botulinum toxin type A. Botulinum toxin injections are proven to be safe treatments which result in smoothing out the fine lines and preventing their further appearance.
Everyone has their own genetics and facial expression muscles type. Thanks to those muscles we can express our emotions and mood. But with the wide smile come the defects like nasolabial wrinkles and frown lines around the eyes. Constant concentration results in the appearance of the wrinkles on the forehead as well because of the intense activity of upper face muscles. When Botulinum toxin is injected it helps to relax the muscles and stops them from contracting. This is why its possible to achieve a smoother look of the skin with no wrinkles.
The treatment may also be used to correct face asymmetry.
The signs you may consider the treatment:
– Deep wrinkles between the eyebrows make you look angry, sad or tired.
– Wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead caused by facial expressions.
– Face asymmetry.
As all the treatments Botulinum toxin injections have their own advantages and disadvantages. During the consultation the doctor will determine whether you can be a good candidate for the treatment.
It’s important to mention also that Botulinum toxin injections may not remove wrinkles completely in certain areas. For example, in nasolabial area and between the eyebrows. If the wrinkles are very deep it can be corrected by plactic surgery or dermal fillers. Botulinum toxin injections may still help to smooth the appearance.
