More and more people are turning to non-surgical cosmetic treatments to look years younger. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are by far the most popular of these non-surgical rejuvenation options. Thanks to BOTOX injections, you can reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles without downtime or the risk of scarring. Dr. William Baugh performs numerous BOTOX injections each week at his Fullerton, CA cosmetic skin care center.
The team at Full Spectrum Dermatology would like to consider some of the basics about BOTOX injections below. We’ll then look at the most popular uses for BOTOX injections when it comes to anti-aging solutions and approaches. This will help you understand the effectiveness and popularity of BOTOX injections.
How BOTOX Injections Work
BOTOX injections prevent muscle contractions from occurring in the injections sites. This prevents muscle movement in those areas that would result in the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. By preventing dynamic wrinkles for forming, BOTOX injections provide several months of smooth, line-free skin and a more youthful appearance.
Dynamic Wrinkles Defined
Simply put, dynamic wrinkles are the creases and lines of the face that appear when a person makes certain facial expressions. These types of facial lines are not visible otherwise. Given the way that BOTOX injections work, it should come as no surprise, then, that a treatment session can help make dynamic wrinkles disappear for months at a time.
With that in mind, let’s consider the facial wrinkles most commonly treated with BOTOX injections at our Fullerton cosmetic dermatology center.
BOTOX Injections Can Smooth Away Brow Lines
The furrows and folds of the forehead that appear when you are surprised or concerned can be smoothed away thanks to BOTOX injections. Carefully placed BOTOX injections mean a brow that’s totally free from those unwanted worry creases. This is why BOTOX injections are sometimes referred to as a liquid brow lift.
BOTOX Injections for Frown Lines Near and Around the Eyes
Your eyes are extremely expressive, as is the space between your eyes. Thanks to BOTOX injections, unwanted frown lines will go away for a few months. That means the vertical creases between your eyes when you squint as well as the crow’s feet visible to the sides and corners of the eyes.
BOTOX Injections for Lip Lines and Marionette Lines
Your mouth is obviously extremely expressive given all of the motions required to speak, smile, laugh, and so forth. BOTOX injections around the mouth can work wonders for vertical lip lines that form over the years. Marionette lines at the sides of your mouth can also be smoothed away. We can also use BOTOX injections along the chin and neck to help get rid of unwanted and unsightly creases of the jawline and jowls.
