How Botox cosmetic injections can rewind time on your appearance

Many of us are familiar with this product name, but not nearly as many understand how it works as an anti-aging skin care solution for both men and women. Dr. Scott Gillin of Solana Beach, California, is a board-certified doctor at RewindMD who can evaluate patients who come into the office and determine if they are a proper candidate for these Botox injections. Patients looking to combat fine lines, wrinkles, and folds caused by muscle tension in the face may be the best candidates for Botox injections.

What does Botox do?

Many patients have questions about how Botox works, specifically how Botox removes wrinkles. Botox is a neuromodulator made with a neurotoxin designed to stop muscle contractions. When it is injected into the muscles of the face, it reduces the depth and overall appearance of dynamic wrinkles–wrinkles that form with time due to muscle contractions. This helps in reversing the signs of aging on the face in a more temporary manner than traditional plastic surgeries such as brow lifts and facelifts. In fact, many patients will enjoy the benefits of their Botox injections for many months before requiring reinjection to maintain the changes they have achieved.

Where is Botox used?

Because Botox works best on dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle tension, it is best used to treat:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Glabellar lines (eleven’s between the eyebrows)
  • Forehead folds and wrinkles

When you consult with Dr. Gillin and his team, you can learn about the various parts of the face that can be improved with Botox or other cosmetic injectables available at our state-of-the-art medical spa facility.
