Botox: to improve wrinkles

Botox: to improve wrinkles

29 October 2019

Botulinum toxin injection is a non-surgical alternative for
eyebrow lift as well as to improve forehead wrinkles
and around the eyes. This method has been applied for therapeutic purposes
for more than 20 years to treat various conditions, including the treatment of superficial or deep wrinkles in people from 18 to 65 years of age.

Wrinkles are dynamic marks caused by overly active muscles. Wrinkles and fine lines are produced by repeatedly gesturing and showing emotions across our face, be it sadness, anger or joy: our brain sends the order of movement to the muscles of the face, releasing a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine, which causes muscle contraction. The botulinum toxin blocks this neurotransmitter, so the muscles do not receive the order, remaining at rest or inactive. The skin that covers them relaxes and, progressively, the expression lines begin to disappear. As there is no movement in the treated area, the appearance of new wrinkles is avoided.

Do you want to receive botulinum toxin injections for wrinkles?
Evaluate yourself with an ophthalmologist specializing in oculoplasty, who is the professional with special knowledge of the muscles and structures that surround the eye.
