As you age, you may feel like you are becoming more and more like your parents. Maybe it’s the way you do your laundry or the words you use. One thing you probably don’t want from your parents, no matter how much you love them, are the wrinkles and natural signs of aging. Have wrinkles plagued your face for years, or are they just beginning to pop up around your eyes and across your forehead? If this sounds like something you’re concerned about, you may want to look into BOTOX® treatments to quickly say goodbye to your lines and wrinkles.
BOTOX® can be used in a variety of treatment areas for facial wrinkles. Common areas are the lines between the eyes and crow’s feet. However, if you have other areas of concern, our specialists can discuss your treatment options and determine whether or not BOTOX® could help you.
BOTOX® can be a great choice if you are beginning to notice lines and wrinkles forming on your face and if your topical creams and lotions are no longer doing a good enough job of keeping them away. While topical treatments can work for some beginning signs of skin aging, BOTOX® is considered a neuromodulator, meaning it prevents your nerves from signaling the muscles to contract. It works farther below the surface of your skin to treat the muscles that actually cause your skin to move and crinkle. When these muscles are temporarily relaxed, they cannot wrinkle the skin or form new lines. Plus, the fine lines that you already noticed when making facial expressions are smoothed out and relaxed.
BOTOX® injection procedures are non-surgical, minimally-invasive, and usually short. The injections can be received at regular intervals to maintain great results. This treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure in the comfort of our office.
