Anti-wrinkle treatment comes in many different variations. There are surgeries, laser treatments and injections of all kinds. One of the classic examples of anti-wrinkle treatments, and consistently the most popular, is BOTOX. This tried-and-true dermal injection is an effective anti-wrinkle treatment because of its ability to fill out volume as well as prevent the formation of new wrinkles.

BOTOX was first approved by the FDA as a cosmetic treatment in 1989 and has since exploded onto the cosmetic market. The injection is composed of botulinum toxin, but there have been no reported fatalities in any cosmetic use of BOTOX. What makes it particularly effective as an anti-wrinkle treatment is BOTOX’s ability to temporarily paralyze injected muscles, which in turn prevents repeated movements that create wrinkles. In the hands of an experienced practitioner like Dr. Perhez Jaffer, the results can be subtle yet dramatic.
