Facial wrinkles are a conspicuous sign of aging, and can make you look older than your actual age. Botox is the most popular non-surgical anti-wrinkle treatment today. Millions of people benefit from this FDA approved in-office wrinkle removal procedure every year. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides Botox wrinkle removal injectable treatments to patients in Dallas and Plano, Texas, and surrounding locations.
Dynamic Wrinkles are Erased with Botox
Botox is based on botulinum toxin type A, which is a powerful muscle relaxant. This ingredient works best on dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by overactive facial muscles that move when you frown, squint, laugh, or smile. Over the years with repetitive motion of these facial muscles, the fine lines and wrinkles start becoming deeper and more visible.
The placement of Botox injections at precise skin depths and locations in the face can cause these facial wrinkles and lines to disappear almost instantly. The procedure can be completed at your surgeon’s office in less than 15 minutes, and you can enjoy a smoother, youthful looking face for several months. The treatment can be repeated in the future to extend the aesthetic benefits.
Types of Facial Lines and Wrinkles
The FDA has approved Botox injections for qualified treatment providers to reduce or remove cosmetic wrinkles and fine lines in the following specific areas of the face:
- Frown lines between the brows (glabellar lines)
- Fine lines emanating from the far corners of the eyes (crow’s feet)
- Horizontal lines and creases across the forehead (forehead lines)
In addition to the above-listed treatment areas, experienced Botox providers may also treat certain off-label facial areas to remove or reduce wrinkles and lines. These include:
- Wrinkles in the chin and jawline
- Wrinkles around the nose (bunny lines)
- Fine lines around the mouth and lips
- Wrinkled or saggy eyebrows
- Lines and wrinkles in the neck
How does Botox Work for Specific Facial Wrinkles?
The FDA originally approved Botox in 2002 for the reduction of frown lines (glabellar lines) between the brows. Botox will diminish or erase these wrinkles to eliminate a squinting or frowning look.
In 2013, the FDA approved Botox for the cosmetic reduction of fine lines spreading from the outer corner of the eyes. Botox can safely remove these lines to create a youthful upper face appearance.
Botox received the FDA’s approval for forehead lines removal in 2017. These horizontal lines occur because of the overactive frontalis muscle. Botox can relax this muscle to ease out the forehead wrinkles.
Skin in the chin area may show unsightly wrinkles with the gradual loss of bone and tissue due to aging. Botox will loosen the muscle activity in this region to smooth out chin lines and wrinkles.
Nose wrinkles, commonly known as bunny lines, occur over the years as you twist or wrinkle the nose. Botox injections can be skillfully placed on both sides of the nose to erase these lines.
