Men and women with imperfections such as lines and wrinkles on the face may be interested in finding ways to restore their youth. However, many believe their only option is invasive plastic surgery, which isn’t exactly the case. In fact, there have been many advances in the area of cosmetic medicine, and now, patients can turn back time with simple aesthetic injectables. One of the more popular solutions for patients with dynamic wrinkles, such as forehead wrinkles, is the use of Botox.
Understanding how Botox works
Our providers at Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills describe the Botox injection as a mediation that is used in reducing muscle movement. When Botox is administered into the muscles of the face, it can relax the dynamic wrinkles. These are more prevalent on the upper portion of the face, making Botox a popular option for addressing:
- Forehead folds
- The glabellar lines (lines between the eyebrows)
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
By relaxing these muscles, the skin above will smooth, reducing and sometimes eliminating the appearance of wrinkles. The results are achieved within a week of the injections, and often last several months before patients will need to return to the office for reinjection.
Why choose Botox?
Many of our patients who learn about Botox and are interested in treatment are often searching for ways to enhance their appearance without the use of plastic surgery. Plastic surgery is invasive and can leave behind unsightly scarring. It also requires extensive downtime to heal and recovery post-surgery. Botox injections are done quickly in our office, and patients return to their normal schedule with an improved appearance for several months! It couldn’t be easier to turn back the clock!
