Signs of aging come in many varieties, such as wrinkles and deep creases that form around the eyes and mouth. Some of these wrinkles and lines are formed because of muscle contractions involved with actions like chewing or facial expressions. For these kinds of wrinkles, there is the Botox injection.
Wrinkles caused by repeated muscle contractions are called dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles form because skin naturally loses elasticity and its ability to bounce back from creasing. So when chewing and smiling constantly crease the skin in the same place, this crease eventually becomes permanent. The Botox injection relaxed these muscle contractions, which prevents the skin from creasing and preserves a youthful appearance.
