BOTOX® is one of the most popular wrinkle reduction treatments among our New York City patients, and with good reason: it has proven to be very effective when used to temporarily reduce or eliminate dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are creases in the skin that become visible when your face is animated. Some examples of dynamic wrinkles include:
- Smile lines
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead creases
- Lip wrinkles
Dynamic wrinkles develop because your skin creases in the same way every time you smile or frown. Your skin ultimately “remembers” these creases over time. BOTOX® targets the constricting facial muscles that cause these wrinkles and forces them to relax, smoothing out the fine lines in your face.
Static wrinkles – those that remain when your facial muscles are completely relaxed – cannot be directly treated by BOTOX®. Dr. Lefkovits provides other non-surgical treatment options that can help treat static wrinkles; by combining one of these treatments with BOTOX®, you can achieve the best results.
