Botox Can Improve The Look Of Your Skin!
Everyone has unique expressions. We move our facial muscles in a repetitive way and over time those repetitive movements cause wrinkles and fine lines. When you start to experience the signs of aging, Botox® is available to diminish unwanted wrinkles and creases in your face.
Botox® blocks the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which triggers the muscle contractions that create wrinkles. Botox® essentially paralyzes the muscles and stops them from contracting. Results from Botox® are visible within two to four days with results that can last anywhere from four to six months.
Botox ®cosmetic treatments can be used to improve:
- Worry lines in your forehead
- Lines between the eyebrows
- Smile lines
- Laugh lines from nose to mouth
- Crow’s feet
What happens during my Botox appointment?
Your Tulsa skin doctor will evaluate the condition of your skin, discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have about Botox treatment. Once treatment areas have been identified, Dr. Anderson will inject Botox into the facial muscles. In just a few minutes, you'll be free to carry on with the rest of your day. It usually takes a little time to notice the full effect of treatment, but in a week to 10 days, the treated areas will begin to look less wrinkled.
Is Botox a long-lasting treatment?
You can generally expect your skin to remain smoother for approximately three to six months after you receive Botox treatment. If you don't continue to receive injections, the effect of the toxin will eventually wear off, and your wrinkles will reappear. Scheduling regular appointments will help you enjoy the full benefits of this innovative cosmetic treatment.
Are you a Candidate for Botox?
Generally, anyone in good health who has fairly shallow fine lines and wrinkles may be good candidates for Botox® treatments. Schedule a consultation at Midtown Dermatology to see if you are a good candidate for a botox treatment.
Most patients require will retreatment to remove wrinkles and lines as they begin to reappear, but after each injection the wrinkles return as less severe as the muscles are trained to relax. The procedure does not require anesthesia and usually takes just a few minutes to perform. Botox® treatments are for both men and women and will help you to rejuvenate and revitalize your appearance.
