or does botox injection help with all facial lines and furrows?

A: Botox works for “dynamic” lines and wrinkles

Lines on the face caused by excessive facial muscle contraction or movement respond to botox treatments.  The botox temporarily weakens the muscle, which relaxes the skin in the area, which creates a smoother look. This is best used for the crow’s feet area (sides of the eyes), between the eyes (glabellar area) and the horizontal lines of the foreheads.  It can be used in other areas but should be done conservatively.

Lines caused by aging, such as the nasolabial folds (lines between the nostril and corner of mouth) are not typically treated with botox and are best treated with fillers (juvederm,radiesse, restylane).

Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for a comprehensive evaluation of your face and of the best treatment options.
