Botox® is a very popular technique to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles in a safe and effective way. Years of squinting, frowning and other expressions tend to form wrinkles between the eyebrows, across the forehead, and at the corners of the eyes. This may produce a sad or angry appearance, which prohibits a pleasant look. When Botox® is injected by our certified professional injectors, they can rejuvenate your skin without surgery.
How Botox® Works
Botox® is derived from a purified protein that temporarily blocks nerve impulses, which lead to the habitual muscle movement forming wrinkles. The tiny injections target specific muscles in the face, so you are left with a natural and relaxed appearance.
Benefits of Botox®
One of the top benefits of Botox® is receiving a naturally youthful appearance without going under the knife. Botox® is non-surgical, requiring absolutely no downtime. Many call this a “lunch-time” procedure because patients can receive the treatment and return to work.
This quick treatment has the advantage of also preventing wrinkles. By relaxing the facial muscles, it prevents creases and lines caused by repetitive expressions from forming. The result is a refreshed and happier look. It is important to remember that overworked muscles do not cause all wrinkles. Some wrinkles form from loss of facial volume, which is best treated with dermal fillers. A combination of Botox® and various dermal filler injections are ideal for a “liquid facelift”.
Botox® Treatment Areas
When administered properly by our expert injectors at MD Skin – The Lounge, Botox® is safe and effective and can target various areas of your face. These areas can include:
- The Forehead: Brow furrowing leads to prominent and permanent wrinkles of the forehead. When Botox® is placed in the forehead, it relaxes the muscles and smooths out the skin.
- The Eyes: A common complaint at our MD Skin Lounge is the troublesome “crow’s feet” area. A quick treatment with Botox® can help smooth crow’s feet.
- The Eyebrows: Another area of concern some patients have are “11 lines” between their eyebrows, or two vertical lines. Again, Botox® can improve these lines, providing a more cheerful appearance.
These are not the only benefits that Botox® can provide. Our specialists will inform you if your specific goals can be achieved through a Botox® treatment during your initial consultation.
