While BOTOX® is an extremely popular cosmetic treatment, not everyone fully understands how it works. In fact, it is common for people to refer to it as a cure-all wrinkle treatment. Many are surprised to find out that it actually only does one thing when it is used for cosmetic reasons. It will help to reduce or completely erase dynamic wrinkles.
Some people are surprised to learn that they can experience two types of wrinkles as they get older. The first type of wrinkle that you will likely notice on your face as you age is static wrinkles. These wrinkles occur because of the way your skin is changing as you get older and because of losing volume under your skin. You have static wrinkles no matter the type of expression you are making.
Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that are caused from making facial expressions. Just think of the way a piece of paper looks after it has been folded several times in the same location. While the paper may not be folded, the crease is still there. The same thing happens as a person ages and they make the same expressions again and again. For example, it is common for a person to develop crow’s feet at the outer corners of their eyes because of squinting and smiling.
BOTOX® is an effective treatment for dynamic wrinkles because of the way it relaxes the facial muscles. When the facial muscles in the area where dynamic wrinkles exist are relaxed, the skin has a chance to relax. This leads to fewer wrinkles and a more youthful appearance.
Most People Make Good Candidates
Another reason why BOTOX® is a world-famous anti-aging treatment is because so many people qualify for it. Only individuals who have severe problems with their muscular and nervous systems usually do not qualify for treatment. It also has an incredible safety record. The FDA and other regulatory agencies have approved this product to be used for cosmetic purposes as well as a variety of medical purposes.

Many are surprised to see how easy it is to have their dynamic wrinkles treated. In most cases, a person is usually only in a clinic for about 15 minutes or less. While the treatment is extremely safe and quick, this does not mean that a person should have just anyone do it.
