Facial aging occurs in three distinct ways: environmental (UV damage), gravitational, and dynamic. Muscles of facial expression can cause premature wrinkling of the skin in the process of dynamic facial aging. The process begins in one’s 30s and is first seen in the upper third of the face. Fine lines develop around the eyes (crows feet), across the forehead, and between the eyes (glabella). These lines deepen with repeated contraction of these muscles of facial expression.
Botox (botulinum toxin) temporarily weakens these muscles of facial expression and eliminates the overlying skin wrinkle. The result is a refreshed appearance to the face with fewer wrinkles. An experienced Botox surgeon can deliver the product precisely to the muscle to eliminate wrinkles without making the patient look artificial or “frozen.”
