Wrinkle Prevention With Forehead Botox

We all know the facial wrinkles that come with age. The horizontal and vertical lines on the forehead and around the eyes are all telltale signs of our age.

For a number of years now, Botox injections have been used to prevent and control the start of wrinkles on the face. Botox is also used to treat underarm sweating, back spasm and pain, and muscle spasms.

Facial wrinkles are formed due to natural movement stress on the skin, like frowning and from solar radiation. Wrinkles appear when collagen in the skin depletes faster than it can be reproduced naturally. This natural retardation of collagen production comes with age. Botox is effective in combating the lines that appear once the collagen depletion starts.

Why Botox On The Forehead?

The wrinkles that form on the forehead often tend to be deeper and are the first to appear due to aging. The forehead muscles are constantly used to express ourselves,when we smile, laugh or frown. Forehead Botox is an effective preventative method to reduce the appearance or stop the appearance of wrinkles due to muscle movement.

Essentially, Botox injections contain botulinum toxin that is a paralyzing agent to the muscles. The Botox essentially freezes the muscle so it cannot move or spasm. This temporary paralysis of the muscle prevents wrinkles and lines from forming.

With continued use of Botox on the forehead, the lines and wrinkles on the facial area will reduce as newer wrinkles cannot form when you are using your facial expressions. The Botox prevents existing wrinkles from worsening and reduces the effects of facial movements.

Things To Remember About Botox Use

The efficiency of Botox increases with continued and consistent use. The spacing between treatments will also decrease as the continued muscle paralysis will eventually make them ineffective and weak. The forehead Botox also gives long-term benefits with just a few treatments as it is a highly effective serum injected straight into the muscle.

An important factor to keep in mind is that Botox essentially weakens muscles over time and the muscles that are responsible for sagging with age, will continue to do so or can worsen with continued Botox use. It is vital that you only use Botox on the muscles that create the lines and wrinkles on the forehead and eyes, and not on muscles that will sag over time.

For example, Botox should only be injected in small doses over a period of time on the flown lines between the eyebrows. Freezing or paralyzing these muscles will stop frown lines developing on the forehead and between the eyes.

It is always advisable to seek a certified medical practitioner to correctly administer any Botox injections. The incorrect placement of usage of Botox could lead to muscle sag or the formation of wrinkles in other areas of the face. A detailed and thorough consultation with an expert or a certified medical practitioner will correctly identify your needs. Botox use is not the same for everyone and will need a detailed examination of the problem areas to decide on a proper course of treatments.
