It is a medicine of biological origin obtained from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botox such as wrinkle Botox (ฉีด โบ ท็ อก ลด ริ้ว รอย which is the term in Thai) is botulinum toxin type A’s registered trademark from a particular laboratory. However, there are botulinum toxins on the market with different names.
Can Botox Be Used On All Types Of Wrinkles?
Dermatologists use this technique to smooth expression wrinkles, that is, those produced by muscle movement. These wrinkles are at first dynamic; that is, they are only formed with muscle movement, that is, with expression. Over the years, from repeating the same expressions so often, we develop static wrinkles, that is, fixed wrinkles, independent of muscle movement.
When The Wrinkle Becomes Static, It Can No Longer Be Corrected With Botox.
On the other hand, some wrinkles are formed due to bone atrophy, atrophy of fat compartments, and sagging skin, such as the Chinese mustache. Botox is not indicated for these other types of wrinkles, and other dermatological procedures can be used: filling with hyaluronic acid, laser, collagen bio stimulation, etc.
Can The Face Be Expressionless?
If the procedure is performed correctly, your face will not be expressionless. The current trend is to make it look very natural. This will depend on the amount of material injected in each region, the dermatologist’s technique, and aesthetic sense. That’s why it makes all the difference to choose a specialist who has experience in the method and evaluates your face individually, as there is no single recipe for applying the substance.
What Is The Ideal Age To Use It?
The issue is usually not age but the need for the application. There is no right age to start, but individual needs. Young patients (25 to 30 years old on average) with a genetic tendency to form expression wrinkles can take advantage of the technique in a preventive way: by relaxing a certain muscle, botulinum toxin prevents a dynamic wrinkle from turning into a static wrinkle (or fixed wrinkle). ). It is always worth emphasizing the importance of the physician’s common sense and the patient’s desire.
