After the age of 30, static lines, such as wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes, become more common due to repeated facial expressions and a loss of skin elasticity.Softening the muscles that cause these lines can prevent them from forming and deepening as we age. Anti-wrinkle injections, like Botox can help soften these lines by temporarily paralyzing the muscles responsible for creasing and lines. Results may take up to two weeks to fully appear and the effects of these injections typically last around 4 to 6 months. Regular maintenance treatments are necessary for long-lasting effects.
