Wrinkles and Expression Lines: Understand the Aging Signs

Botulinum toxin (Botox) is a popular treatment for frown lines.

It works by temporarily inhibiting facial muscle contractions, allowing for the treatment and prevention of new wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows.

Botulinum toxin is used in our clinic to treat and prevent expression lines because it is a safe procedure that targets the source of the problem. This aids in the reduction of wrinkles and frown lines, giving the skin a more natural and rejuvenated appearance.

The treatment for expression lines produces quick results, and it is possible to notice a significant improvement in the skin within a few days. It is recommended to undergo the procedure every 4 to 6 months for the best results.

In our clinic, we also use hyaluronic acid dermal fillers or MD Codes to treat gravitational wrinkles. This helps to restore the patient’s facial volume by reducing wrinkles and expression lines around the chin, cheekbone, and mouth.

The treatment is administered by Dr. Szerman, a highly experienced doctor who graduated from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). With over 20 years of experience, he is a renowned expert in laser treatments, and he even provides courses for beginner doctors.
How does it work?
Botulinum toxin works as a neuromuscular blocker by inhibiting the release of acetylcholine, a substance responsible for muscle contraction, when injected. This reduction in acetylcholine release by cells softens the appearance of expression lines.

I confess that I've always been afraid of going through this procedure and not being able to recognize my own expressions in the mirror. However, Dr. Guilherme's gentle touch and expertise not only ensured that I still recognize myself in the mirror, but also left me feeling like I've shed a few years off my appearance.

What causes wrinkles?

The natural aging process and sun exposure without the use of sunscreen are the primary causes of wrinkles on the face.

However, wrinkles can also be caused by hormonal issues, excessive alcohol consumption, collagen loss, stress, poor diet, and excessive sugar consumption, among other things.

As people get older, it is unavoidable that they will develop wrinkles on their face. People frequently Google “what is the best thing to get rid of wrinkles on face?” Clínica de Pele believes that an effective wrinkle treatment requires experienced doctors, cutting-edge treatments, and well-informed patients.

Home treatments for wrinkles are not effective. It is always advisable to consult a dermatologist to evaluate and treat your wrinkles.

The treatment’s response time varies depending on factors such as age, skin type, and the depth of the marks.

Within 14 days of using the CO2 laser, there will be an improvement in the glow and quality of the skin.

Acne scar improvement typically begins between 30 and 45 days after the session, as this is when the body reaches its peak of collagen production following the laser treatment.

According to studies, the results continue to improve for 6 months and may even last up to a year after the session, as patients frequently report.

The most well-known treatment for fine lines and wrinkles is botulinum toxin. We emphasize the importance of patients understanding the primary differences between the botulinum toxin brands on the market and the specialized professionals administering the treatmentMaking the right choices is fundamental for safety and achieving the best treatment results.

Our brains use the neurotransmitter acetylcholine to send electrical signals to our muscles, inducing them to contract and move. These treatments use botulinum toxin, which prevents nerve cells from releasing acetylcholine, which causes muscle contraction.

Expression lines such as forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown/scowl lines are softened, and the nose tip is lifted, by selectively interfering with muscle contraction capacity. Often, these lines are nearly invisible after a week.

Treatments using dermal fillers, on the other hand, are used to treat static wrinkles that are associated with daily life factors such as work, sun exposure, and sleep quality.

As natural skin elements, such as hyaluronic acid, decrease over time, the structure and elasticity of the skin deteriorate, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles.

Botulinum toxin is indicated when muscle contraction is the primary cause of wrinkles. The toxin is applied to wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes (where crow’s feet form), and on the Glabellar lines (frown/scowl lines).

No, but an anesthetic cream can be applied an hour before the session. It is not recommended to use makeup, touch the treated area, or lie down for six hours after the toxin has been applied. Physical activities can be resumed the following day.

Patients usually tolerate the treatment well. A local anesthetic cream is applied before application, making the procedure more comfortable for the majority of patients.

The cost of expression line treatment varies depending on the severity of the wrinkles and the amount of Botox required. Thus, it is ideal for the doctor to conduct an initial assessment of the patient’s needs to determine the appropriate price for the treatment.

For more information about the treatment, please contact us via WhatsApp.

Only one application of botulinum toxin to the face is required, and on average, 50 to 80 units of botulinum toxin are administered to treat the upper third of the face.

The amount of botulinum toxin applied depends on the degree of muscular strength of each patient.

Patients are advised to return 15 days after the procedure for a re-evaluation.

Botulinum toxin’s effects can be seen within a few days of application, and the benefits are most noticeable between one and two weeks.
The treatment usually lasts four to six months before requiring a new application to maintain the resultsThe effects tend to last longer in a gradual manner with repeated applications.

In order to determine the optimal procedure for your case, it is necessary to conduct preliminary research. Conducting research, comparing, and comprehending the distinctions between different types of treatments is the most effective method to guarantee a safe and successful outcome for the desired procedure.

Besides, it is crucial to understand the primary differences between the types and brands of botulinum toxin available on the marketMaking the right choices is fundamental for safety and achieving the best treatment results.

For safe treatment, only board-certified medical professionals specializing in aesthetic medicine and/or members of the Brazilian Society of Dermatology and/or Laser should be consulted.
