Botox Cosmetic Injection

Have you been thinking about smoothing out those frown lines or crow's-feet on your face? If so, then maybe you've been thinking about having Botox cosmetic injections, which are becoming extremely popular for treating facial wrinkles. Botox injections can, for a short time, relax the facial muscles around wrinkles, making them appear less noticeable.

Botox is the brand name for botulinum toxin type A, which is the purified form of the toxin, that when injected in small doses into specific muscles, it blocks the chemical signals that makes your muscles contract. If your muscles can't tighten, your skin will flatten and look smoother and less wrinkled.

So if you would like to diminish the appearance of wrinkles then Botox cosmetic injections may be just for you. Areas that can be treated include:

• Forehead creases

• Thick bands on the neck

• Frown lines between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose

• Crow's-feet at the corners of the eyes

You should know that not all facial wrinkles can be treated with Botox cosmetic injections. If your wrinkles are caused by sun damage, then this treatment won't benefit you. Lines around your mouth are also less likely to benefit from Botox treatment as well. Other factors that effect how well Botox will work for you are your skin type, skin thickness and degree of wrinkling.
