BUCKEYE DERMATOLOGY COSMETIC DERMATOLOGY TREATMENTS
BOTOX® is a prescription medicine cosmetic physicians have been using for years to treat wrinkles and facial creases.
As we age, repeated contractions of the muscles that control frowning and squinting cause these lines to become noticeable, making us look older gradually. When Botox is injected into those muscles, it blocks nerve transmissions. The muscles can no longer contract, reducing the appearance of existing wrinkles and lines and discouraging the formation of new ones.
Botox® can be used for treating:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Lines between the eyes
- Crow’s feet
- TMJ pain
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Creases in the lips
- Dimples in the chin
- Jaw reduction
What to expect – Real, noticeable results
It only takes a short time for your Botox treatment. A fine needle is used to inject the Botox into specific muscles according to the desired cosmetic improvement. There is only minor discomfort, and no anesthesia is needed.
Botox weakens the muscles and reduces wrinkles and frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, and more. For certain patients, Botox may, at times, also be used around the mouth or on the neck.
On average, most patients will see results within 72 hours after Botox injections. It may take as many as 8-10 days after treatment for decreased muscle movement for a few individuals.
Also, there can be a noticeable improvement in moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows. After your initial treatment, wrinkles and lines will continually improve for up to 30 days. The results can last for up to 4 months. Individual results may vary.
As we age, our faces naturally lose some of the fat just under our skin. This loss of fat lets facial muscles appear closer to the skin’s surface. As the muscles work, signs of aging become more visible such as crow’s feet and smile lines. Our facial skin also stretches to some extent adding to the loss of facial volume.
Unlike Botox injected into facial muscles to stop the movement that causes wrinkles, dermal fillers injected into the skin will plump an area removing wrinkles, depressions, or folds.
Dermal fillers can:
- Lessen or eliminate shadows of lower eyelids
- Improve shallow contours
- Enhance the appearance of recessed scars
- Make thin lips fuller
- Rebuild contour distortions of the face
- Decrease facial wrinkles and creases
We offer the latest and most effective dermal fillers available that help reduces facial lines and return fullness and volume to your face.
