Is your dream of graceful aging being derailed by those unflattering lines between your brows or crow’s feet? Women and men across the world turn to Botox for wrinkles in Northwest Ohio every day to turn back the clock on aging and restore youthful vibrancy to their skin.
At Blush Aesthetics in Toledo and Ottawa Hills, we’re happy to develop custom treatment plans for our patients that include Botox or other neuromodulator injections to combat dynamic wrinkles.
Static wrinkles vs dynamic wrinkles
If you have static wrinkles, we will likely suggest you consider filler injections. Filler is a gel-like substance made from hyaluronic acid or similar formulas. It is used to restore lost volume beneath the skin, which fills static wrinkles.
Static wrinkles are the lines that appear along the neck, across the cheeks, and at the corners of the mouth. They start small but deepen over time and never go away. Caused by a natural loss of elasticity and collagen, without intervention static wrinkles will get deeper and more noticeable. Often, the static wrinkles people are most bothered by include:
- Nasolabial folds from the nose to the corner of your mouth
- Marionette lines from the edge of your mouth to the jawline
- Tear trough lines under the inside corner of your eye
- Lateral cheek lines that appear behind smile lines
- Lines across the neck
Dynamic wrinkles are lines that appear when you make specific facial movements or expressions. Over time and repeated expressions, these lines become static wrinkles as they are permanently etched into your skin, even when your muscles are relaxed. Dynamic wrinkles include:
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Mid-cheek smile lines
- Lip lines

BOTOX and other neuromodulators
This anti-aging procedure provides amazing results and is popular among both men and women. Botox in Toledo can make a dramatic difference in the appearance of dynamic facial wrinkles.
The lines disappear as the face relaxes naturally, but dynamic creases can still exist. Botox is a purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the underlying tissue and muscle. To diminish the appearance of these dynamic lines and wrinkles, nurse practitioners inject neuromodulators to relax and soften the skin. This specific injection is most commonly placed between the brows where the number “11” appears, on the crow’s feet, and throughout the forehead.
BOTOX vs Dysport
Both Dysport and Botox are types of neurotoxins that block muscle contractions. They’re both derived from botulinum toxins, which are safe in small amounts. Each formula is designed to suit specific areas and needs. Dysport is a more diluted version of the botulinum toxin so it spreads more quickly than Botox. This makes it ideal for larger surface areas.
BOTOX vs Xeomin
Another purified neurotoxin, the main difference between Xeomin and Botox is that Xeomin contains a “naked” form of botulinum toxin. Botox, on the other hand, contains accessory proteins. Xeomin also has fewer storage restrictions than Botox.
Three formulas for the most customized treatment possible
Although Dysport, Botox and Xeomin are all muscle relaxers, your provider may choose a specific one based on your health history, your bone structure, metabolism, or your desired result. Although they all do a great job, just like other medications, one may be a better fit than another based on your provider’s assessment.
