Botox: The Most Popular Wrinkle Treatment in America

Botox is the most popular wrinkle treatment in the world. Globally, there is no other cosmetic procedure performed more than Botox. Continue reading to learn how Botox can make you look radically younger by softening the appearance of crow’s feet, brow lines, and forehead wrinkles.

The Biology of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Botox is an excellent wrinkle treatment, but to see why it is useful to understand the different types of wrinkles that age the face.

Static Wrinkles

Static wrinkles age the bottom portion of the face. Common static wrinkles include vertical lip lines (smoker’s lines) and nasolabial folds (marionette lines.) The best treatment for static wrinkles is soft tissue fillers, such as Juvéderm.

Dynamic Wrinkles

The expression lines that appear on the upper portion of the face are known as dynamic wrinkles. These wrinkles often form around the eyes, brow, and forehead.  This form of wrinkle results after years of repetitive muscle movements. For example, every time we frown, squinting our eyes and furrowing our brow, the underlying muscles follow the same mechanical path. Over time, this mechanical path creates a groove in the muscle. As a result, the overlying skin becomes wrinkled, forming a crease above the muscle’s groove.

How Does Botox Work to Reduce Wrinkles?

So, what is Botox? Botox is a safe, FDA approved medication derived from the botulinum toxin. This biodegradable protein blocks chemical signals from the brain that command muscles to contract (tighten.) Without these muscle impulses from the brain, the tissue can relax and lengthen. Lengthening the muscle smooths out the groove, allowing the overlying skin to lay flat.

This process permits the skin to smooth out dynamic wrinkles such as crows’ feet, brow lines, and forehead wrinkles.

Botox is the #1 wrinkle treatment in the United States for a good reason. When performed by a reputable practitioner, Botox results look natural and preserve facial dexterity. The treatment smooths out fine lines and wrinkles for several months.
