Do You Have Wrinkles That Will Respond To BOTOX® Cosmetic?
This is a really important question and one that’s not always easy for you to answer. However, it’s important to understand what types of wrinkles will respond to BOTOX® Cosmetic in Spokane Valley. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by relaxing muscles, so it works best on wrinkles caused by muscles that overact when you make facial expressions or that remain habitually contracted.
Some common wrinkles we treat with BOTOX® Cosmetic include:
- Wrinkles in your forehead
- Glabellar lines (sometimes called frown lines or “11”s) between your eyebrows
- Crow’s feet
- Bunny lines around the nose
Dynamic wrinkles–those that appear when you make an expression–respond best to BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. However, many static wrinkles can dissipate with the help of BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. It just might take longer.
However, some wrinkles are less likely to respond to BOTOX® Injections. Many of these will respond to injection with Juvéderm, a facial filler. Spokane Valley cosmetic dentist Dr. Marnie Collins has successfully treated many patients with both these treatments and can help you decide with is right in your situation.
