BENEFITS OF BOTOX
Botox is most effective on wrinkles that haven’t quite set -- “dynamic” wrinkles that appear while you’re moving your face, such as when you frown. “If you don’t move the muscle too much, you won’t form the wrinkle,” says Columbia University dermatologist Monica Halem, MD. She considers Botox preventive.
This reduces the formation of certain wrinkles and lines. A few strategically placed Botox® injections can minimize the appearance of crow's feet, frown lines and other pesky wrinkles around the eye and forehead area. Dermal fillers fill in wrinkles, folds and creases to help soften their appearance.
A WORD OF CAUTION
Those lines caused by sun-damaged skin or age-related sagging of the skin cannot be effectively treated with Botox.
