Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors, including changes in facial skin cells over time, the reduction of collagen, damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. Then when you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause “crow’s feet”.
An increasingly popular cosmetic medical procedure that is injected into the facial muscles is now available. It is a muscle relaxer that blocks the motor nerves that activate the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet. When that muscle no longer contracts, the dynamic motion that causes wrinkles in the skin will stop. The skin then starts to smooth out, and approximately three to ten days after treatment, the skin above those muscles becomes nice and smooth.
