Can Botox Treat all Wrinkles?

Neuromodulators, like Botox and Xeomin, are superstars these days, that’s for sure. And with good reason: they’re revolutionary prescription medications that improve moderate to severe frown lines, forehead furrows, smoker’s lines, and crow’s feet.


Contrary to popular belief, Botox and Xeomin can’t treat all types of lines and wrinkles — they are designed to treat dynamic wrinkles. What are dynamic wrinkles? They are wrinkles that form as a result of muscle motion and habitual movement. When our facial muscles contract, the skin over those muscles stretches to accommodate. When we’re young, this doesn’t cause any problems because the skin can easily bounce back. But as we age, the skin begins to lose its elasticity, which means that our skin can no longer bounce back, and when that happens, those are called static wrinkles.. The most common dynamic wrinkles are:

  • Smoker’s lines
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Marionette lines

Sometimes, dynamic wrinkles can turn into static wrinkles. What are static wrinkles? Static wrinkles are caused by gravity, the loss of fat and collagen, and the loss of skin’s elasticity. These types of wrinkles are visible regardless of the muscle action, meaning that they are always present. Some wrinkles are really more folds than lines and may be dynamic or static. Unfortunately, Botox and Xeomin aren’t effective on static lines and wrinkles.


There’s a reason why neuromodulators are the top choice for treating dynamic wrinkles – there’s no surgery or recovery time involved. What’s more, neuromodulators offer real, noticeable results. Since Botox and Xeomin work by weakening facial muscles, full results are generally seen within two days and will see the maximum effect in about 10-14 days. You’ll see deep dynamic wrinkles gradually improve over time, in addition to the early effects seen shortly after treatment. Your results will continue to improve until about two weeks after your treatment. At that time, you’ll be looking your best. The effects of Botox and Xeomin will gradually wear off over the next three months, and the wrinkles will need to be retreated. 


No other treatment beats Botox or Xeomin. Dermabrasion and chemical peels can’t treat dynamic wrinkles because they’re unable to relax the muscles that cause those wrinkles to appear. Neuromodulators also have an added advantage: Compared to dermabrasion and chemical peels, they have no downtime. Both dermabrasion and chemical peels require up to ten days of recovery time. Neuromodulators fit your active lifestyle, offering true cosmetic convenience!

And get this: when used early in the aging process, Botox and Xeomin treat wrinkles and prevent new wrinkles from forming. Botox and Xeomin are most effective on wrinkles that haven’t quite set in and reduce the onset of wrinkles before they become moderate or severe. By combining a neuromodulator regimen with good skincare, sunscreen, and a healthy lifestyle, you can prevent most wrinkles from getting worse and stop new ones from forming.
