BOTOX® treatment is commonly sought out by individuals who are looking to decrease wrinkles on their face. Wrinkles can become prominent, conspicuous, and bothersome over time. BOTOX® Cosmetic is used to treat wrinkles found on the forehead, near the outer corners of the eyes, and around the mouth. Those looking to get rid of facial wrinkles for cosmetic reasons are good candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic. We at Worcester Dermatology encourage you to learn more about how this treatment can help you.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that works to mitigate the aspect of frown lines and crow’s feet. Since 2002 it has becomes the leading product of its kind with more than 10 million vials sold in the US alone. It is a purified protein solution that acts as a neuromodulator, calming the muscles in the face whose contractions would ordinarily result in wrinkling. The muscles in our face contract to form our expressions every single day; over time, our facial skin loses its natural elasticity, and the result is fine lines and creases. BOTOX® Cosmetic blocs the nerve signals that cue these muscles to contract, relaxing them so as to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and reprise the youthful smoothness of your face.
Each treatment takes approximately ten minutes and requires little to no downtime. Initial results may appear anywhere from on to two days after the procedure, and overall results last for about four months. Future injections may be necessary to maintain optimal effect, and our team can help you structure a treatment plan that works uniquely for you.
