BOTOX is one of the top reasons why many people come to visit our office. They are wondering if this treatment can help to reduce wrinkles and create a softer, more relaxed appearance. This minimally invasive procedure is ideal for reversing signs of aging if you’re looking for a temporary and subtle result. Here are some of the things Dr. Rodgers can treat using injections:
- Frown lines between the brows
- Drooping brows
- Forehead lines and creases
- Crow’s feet
This treatment can also be used for loose skin on the face and neck in some cases. Injections can be made in one area or a treatment can target several areas throughout the face. This treatment can be used on patients of all ages.
How Does This Wrinkle Treatment Work?
BOTOX works by blocking nerve impulses from activating when the muscles in your face contract. These constant contractions actually cause wrinkles to develop. This means that your skin becomes less elastic and slowly forms wrinkles every time you make a facial expression. It isn’t just people who frown or make worried expressions who have to deal with wrinkles. Even smiles and positive expressions cause unwanted wrinkles. Injections cause the skin to appear smoother and give a patient a more relaxed expression. A treatment session can take between 10 minutes and 20 minutes. This treatment is a favorite among patients because of the fact that it requires virtually no recovery time. It is also essentially painless.
