What Signs of Aging Does Botox Injections Target?
Have you ever just looked in the mirror or at a picture of yourself and wondered, “When did I start looking old?!” Maybe you’re seeing the fine lines around your eyes and mouth. Maybe you can’t believe that those forehead lines are looking more etched than before. Or maybe you start questioning how many hours you spend scowling in deep concentration because those “eleven lines” between your eyes don’t go away anymore. Whatever concerns you when you look in the mirror or look at a picture of yourself, rest assured that there is help.
Botox has been around for decades. It has been one of the most widely used and studied anti-aging product on the market, making it a great first step in your treatments. Botox is an FDA approved injectable that is designed to interfere with the signals that are sent from the nerves in your face to the muscles in your face. Botox temporarily relaxes certain muscles in the face that are responsible for your facial expressions. Once the muscles are relaxed, the skin over those muscles become relaxed and wrinkles begin to disappear.

What Signs of Aging Does Botox Target?
Botox is designed to treat dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are those that are caused by facial muscles that move when you smile, laugh, squint, frown, and laugh. The eleven lines between a person’s eyebrows are the result of muscular movements. Crows feet, around the eyes, are also dynamic wrinkles. Forehead lines and lines around the mouth are also caused by repetitive muscle movements. Each of these areas is a perfect candidate for Botox injections.
How Long Does Botox Last?
Each Botox session will take 15 – 20 minutes with your medical professional, and results can be seen in 3-14 days. Patients are advised to schedule follow up treatments every six months or sooner if they feel that their results are fading too quickly. The effects of Botox treatments last from 3 to 4 months. Since Botox works only on wrinkles that are caused by muscle movement (the expression lines), it is important to note that it will not work on lines and wrinkles caused by loss of plumpness in the face due to aging or even dramatic weight loss, but your medical team can point you to treatments for those issues as well.
