If you would like to achieve a more youthful appearance, our plastic surgeon may recommend that you consider BOTOX®. BOTOX has been used for decades to help patients reduce the visibility of wrinkles and improve their faces’ cosmetics. Treatment consists of a series of injections of BOTOX, which is an injectable medication that targets the muscles responsible for creating frown lines and crow’s feet wrinkles. By isolating and inhibiting these muscles, BOTOX removes an underlying cause of many facial wrinkles and can help you achieve a more youthful appearance.
Wrinkles result from many causes. As we age, our skin can lose tension and elasticity because of sun damage. Collagen levels within the skin may also decrease. But the direct cause of wrinkles is the contraction of muscles around your eyes and in your cheeks. Every time you frown or squint your eyes, you contribute to the formation of new wrinkles. BOTOX inhibits the perpetuation of new wrinkles and can help you achieve the healthy, beautiful appearance you desire. You may begin to notice results from your BOTOX treatment within 24 to 48 hours, and the results can last about three months
