How and why do wrinkles form?
Many facial wrinkles form when we use our muscles to make facial expressions. With the increasing age, dynamic wrinkles remain on the skin and form static wrinkles. This occurs because of natural substances such as collagen, elastin, and Hyaluronic acid decrease with age. This together with environmental factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress all contribute to the creation of wrinkles and folds.
How does BOTOX treatment work?
Botox can be used to relax specific facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles (the wrinkles that are formed during facial expression). Thus, lines gradually smoothen, and new lines are prevented from forming.
Botox will not radically change your facial appearance, it will just smoothen your facial lines.
