What Causes Expression Wrinkles?

In most cases, the first signs of aging occur on a person’s face in areas where the skin naturally folds or creases. These are what are known as expression or dynamic wrinkles, and they begin to develop at a young age.

During expressions such as smiling, frowning, or squinting, fine lines start to show because of the facial muscle contractions, and these faint lines become more pronounced with age. As the skin becomes thinner, loses elasticity, and is affected by gravity, it can no longer snap back into place as easily. Skin cells divide more slowly and fat in the deeper layers of skin diminishes. Some examples of expression wrinkles include forehead lines, vertical frown lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet, which are tiny lines that form at the corners of the eyes.

Which Treatments Are Available for Reducing Wrinkles?

Botox®(onabotulinumtoxinA) and Dysport®(abobotulinumtoxinA) are two of the most popular options for targeting expression lines. Both injectables contain a neurotoxic protein called botulinum toxin type A that’s produced from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum and they are used to address the same types of aesthetic concerns. Although there are some subtle differences between the two injectables because of the way they’re manufactured, they work the same way by blocking certain nerves so that they can weaken or relax the muscles that cause the skin to crease up. Dysport® has a faster onset than Botox®. The dosage is slightly different for these two neurotoxins but they last for around the same amount of time – three to four months on average – and produce similar effects.

Who is a Good Candidate for Wrinkle Relaxers?

The best candidates for injectable treatments with botulinum toxin type A include patients over the age of eighteen who are physically healthy, want to soften mild to severe wrinkles caused by habitual facial expressions, and maintain a positive outlook and realistic goals for these treatments.

Those who have allergies to ingredients contained in botulinum toxin wrinkle injectables, have active skin infections on the treatment area, have certain nerve or muscle conditions, or have other severe illnesses or infections should not get botulinum toxin injectables.

Wrinkle Relaxer Procedure Details

Treatments with botulinum toxin injections are simple and will only take a few minutes. The nurse injects only the specific wrinkle-causing facial muscles. Most patients only experience minor discomfort because the needle is so tiny, and a numbing cream is also applied. Only the muscles that contribute to expression lines are weakened and a small amount of the medicine is used on strategic areas so that the natural facial expressions of the patient are preserved.

Results and Recovery from Wrinkle Relaxers

There is no recovery time after Botox® or other botulinum toxin injections. Results appear a few days later and will last between three to four months. Eventually the botulinum toxin is metabolized, and its effects wear off, so the muscle contractions and creases will return.

Are There Alternative Options for Reducing Facial Wrinkles?

Wrinkles aren’t all the same. There are other types, called static wrinkles on the face that develop primarily because of sun exposure, age-related collagen and elastin loss, gravity, stress, or other factors that aren’t associated with facial muscles. These are called static wrinkles and must be treated with injectable fillers. Hyaluronic acid fillers are clear, gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to temporarily reduce the depth of creases and lines. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, biostimulatory fillers such as Radiesse® and Sculptra® actively stimulate the skin’s natural production of collagen to gradually soften lines, add lift, and restore a younger, smoother appearance.
