Wrinkles :: Removed wrinkles reappear elsewhere

Doctors have warned that people who have Botox injections to get rid of wrinkles and to make them look younger may develop new ones in different places, according to a study published in the journal Cosmetic Dermatology. Skin specialists believe that the body tries to recreate the facial expressions that the treatment has smoothed out.

As a result, new wrinkles arise in mobile areas of the face, adjacent to the frozen parts that have been injected with Botox. “What can happen is that other, nearby muscles compensate this can have the effect of actually creating new wrinkles”, said Dr David Becker, clinical assistant professor of dermatology at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York.
