Does Botox increase wrinkles after its effect wears off?

Botox injections are used for wide therapeutic necessities, but the most popular use among women is cosmetic use, due to its effectiveness in filling the face, fighting signs of aging and fighting wrinkles.

But the question that many women have, with the demise of Botox: Is it possible for more wrinkles to appear than they used to be?

“When people see lines forming after Botox wears off, they think the treatment has made their wrinkles worse, but in reality, the face is simply going back to its normal state,” said board-certified internal medicine physician Dr. Dale Prokopeck via Aesthetic Body Solutions.

That is, there are no new wrinkles or lines because of these injections.

He explains that the botulinum used in Botox injections is broken down by the body over time, which leads to the appearance of wrinkles again.
