How does Botox work?
Dynamic lines are expression lines; It occurs with the contraction of small muscles under the skin during mimic movements (frown, speaking, laughing…). The contraction of these muscles settles on the skin over time and creates permanent lines and wrinkles.
Botox provides tension of the skin in the injection area by blocking the passage in the nerves and “preventing muscle contraction”.
These lines can be corrected with botox treatment in the early period. Over time, the lines get deeper, botox treatment alone cannot provide sufficient improvement, other additional treatments are applied. (laser, peeling, filler injection…)
