BOTOX® injections have maintained their popularity as the go-to anti-wrinkle treatment for more than a decade. BOTOX® was first approved for use in the early 2000’s. Since then both men and women have been using this product as a way to address areas like crow’s feet, the wrinkles that appear in between the eyebrows, and wrinkles on the forehead.
Why Is BOTOX® Popular?
BOTOX® owes its popularity to the fact that it works. The results that it produces are unquestionable. BOTOX® does a great job at addressing the reason why you get certain wrinkles as opposed to simply covering the wrinkles up. Your wrinkles are not just skin deep. Certain wrinkles come as a result of muscle movements that are going on underneath your skin.
BOTOX® injections are designed to address the repeatedly contracting facial muscles that cause certain wrinkles. To get a good idea of which wrinkles these are, go to the mirror and squint your eyes. Do you see the wrinkles that are forming along the sides of your eyes? Those are the types of wrinkles this treatment can address.
In youth, these wrinkles appear when you smile or when you laugh, but once your face returns to a neutral position, the wrinkles disappear. Over time, certain wrinkles start to etch lines into your skin. Just think of how many times you voluntarily or involuntarily make these facial gestures that cause your skin to fold. After doing this thousands of times over the years, you can imagine the effect it will have on your skin.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX® is a neuromodulator. When you get BOTOX® injections, the active ingredient interferes with the signals from your facial nerves and muscles. As a result, your facial muscles do not put your skin under the high level of strain that it typically experiences. This gives your skin a temporary break where it can relax and recoup. The wrinkles that have been etched into your face over the years start to become less and less prominent.
