Wrinkles are described as static and or dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are cause by contracting muscles under the skin that can cause frown lines in the forehead, those number 11’s between the brows and crows feet. On the other hand Static wrinkles are those wrinkles that are on your face when not making any expressions caused by muscle contraction. These are generally the result of photoaging of the skin either caused by sun or aging. This causes the skin to loose its elasticity and collagen resulting in wrinkles at rest giving one the appearance of being angry or tired all the time. Botox combined with fractional skin resurfacing for sun damaged and aged skin, will set your clock back many years
Botox injections can be used on the face and for chin dimpling, bunny nose wrinkles, neck lines that form from the platysmal bands and downward frown to corners of the mouth from the angularis muscle tensing.
