Will I experience more wrinkle reduction from a true facelift or from Botox injections?
There really is no comparison between the effects of a face lift surgery compared to the effects of Botox injections for wrinkle reduction. Face lift surgery will address all the wrinkles of the facial skin where surgery is performed. Botox injections will help to decrease the appearance of wrinkles that occur in areas where you have facial wrinkling due to contraction of your facial muscles of expression. Botox works best around the eyes and in the forehead to help reduce wrinkling in these areas and is actually extremely helpful in decreasing wrinkles in these areas even after a face lift has been performed.
