Many facial wrinkles are formed when we use our muscles to express face. Wrinkles are formed by so-called dynamic wrinkles. For example, when we smile, wrinkles in our eyes become clear; and when we frown, vertical lines between the eyebrows become visible. When we are younger, our skin back to its original position after expressing face; but the more we age, the dynamic wrinkles settle on the skin and form persistent wrinkles which make the wrinkles and folds look even though we are in no-expression state. This process occurs as a natural substance such as collagen (the main structural protein in the skin), elastin (the protein which causes the tissue to stretch), and hyaluronic acid (which gives skin volume) decrease with age. This situation along with environmental factors such as sun exposure, smoking, stress, lack of sleep, and alcohol contribute to creating wrinkles.
Botox is a purified natural protein which relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles, thus creating a rejuvenating look. The active ingredient in Botox treatments derived from bacteria in a manner similar to penicillin derived from fungi. BOTOX is produced in a variety of sterile laboratory conditions. BOTOX is a drug that can only be purchased through a prescription and the treatment is only available from a qualified medical professional.
