Is It Botox That You Really Need?

Are you worried about the appearance of fine lines in your forehead? Or would you like to improve the look of your sunken cheeks? Although nothing beats Botox as the most popular injectable, it is important to keep in mind that Botox is not a wonder injectable, that is it may not work for all kinds of facial rejuvenation concerns.

By and large, Botox works best for dynamic wrinkles, the ones that are formed through repetitive muscle contraction underneath the skin such as frowning, smiling, squinting, and smiling. Consequently, Botox is effective in improving the appearance of crow’s feet (wrinkles in the outermost corner of the eye), forehead creases, frown lines, and neck bands.

Lastly, Botox can also be used as a preventive measure if you wish to avoid the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We have patients who use Botox preventatively because early appearance of wrinkles tends to run in the family.

If your concerns has largely to do with deeper lines such as nasolabial folds (folds that run between the nose and mouth), sunken cheeks, and acne scars, you might want to explore another set of injectables collectively known as dermal fillers.
