Over time, your fine facial lines deepen, especially around your forehead, eyes and mouth. These signs of aging are amplified because of repeated facial movements and expressions. Your muscles deepen the skin’s folds and wrinkles.
The injection of small doses of botulinum toxin (Botox Cosmetic® or Xeomin®) under the skin lessens expressive muscle contractions that are responsible for frown lines, crows’ feet, horizontal forehead wrinkles and smile lines. This results in a smoother and younger looking face. In the treated zones, the effects of the botulinum toxin can start to be observed 3 to 5 days after injection and will last 3 to 4 months.
Often used in conjunction with botulinum toxin, hyaluronic acid based injectable facial fillers (Juvederm® or Belotero®) can plump up deeper static wrinkles such as perioral lines, nasogenien folds and marionette lines. These products restore skin density and bestow a more relaxed facial appearance.
