Wrinkle Reduction is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to reduce and help smooth out forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles on the face.
BOTOX is laboratory synthesized Botulinum toxin type A and the trade name of one of several brands currently available. BOTOX works by blocking the release of a chemical neurotransmitter called Acetylcholine from nerve endings.
The muscles into which wrinkle reduction treatment are injected become "relaxed", thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles. This treatment works for Dynamic wrinkles which appear only when there is muscle action. It will not work with Static wrinkles, which are lines that are already etched into the skin, even without any muscle action. Treatment options for static wrinkles include Dermal Fillers together with BOTOX and SCULPTRA.
Unlike 'conventional' therapy that goes slightly deeper, the Micro-B Lift involves multiple tiny superficial injections that target the fine muscles controlling pore size at the jaw line. The aim of this technique is to deliver smaller pores and hence the skin surface area is stretched out over the face, providing in a 'lift' effect. The injections over the jaw area also lowers the effect of the downward pull of the platysmus muscle, giving the cheek and jowls a 'lift'.
BOTOX is also often used for facial sculpting, to target strong masseter muscles, commonly refered to as "the square jaw".
A strong jawline may look good for men but for women, a softer angle at the jawline is more feminine looking.
The benefits of this wrinkles reduction therapy appear from 1 month onwards as muscle atrophy needs time to present, although individual results may vary.
