This simple injectable treatment can take years off your face. Here’s how…
Most people have heard about Botox treatment. In fact, Botox has become of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the US, with more than 1.5 million Botox treatments performed in just 2017 alone. If you’ve been curious about Botox and what it can do for you, it’s the perfect time to talk with our Pasadena, TX, cosmetic dermatologists. Here are some facts that everyone should know before getting Botox,
Botox treats dynamic facial lines and wrinkles
Those lines that seem to be accentuated whenever you smile or frown is the types of wrinkles that Botox can smooth away. This means that in a matter of days after treatment you will see a serious reduction in,
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead wrinkles
- Furrow lines
- Marionette lines (the lines around your mouth and nose)
- Chin dimples
- Vertical lines above the upper lip
Turn to the experts for Botox treatment
We know that there are spas that offer Botox and even Botox parties happening in people’s homes, but we recommend staying away from these treatment options. Doctors have to go through special training to be able to administer these injections safely, and you want to have a dermatologist that you trust to provide you with safe, effective Botox treatment. To reduce the risk for side effects or complications, say no to that Botox party and turn to our Pasadena, CA, skin doctor for Botox instead.
Botox is temporary
Depending on the person, Botox can last anywhere from 3-6 months. While this may be a negative for some people, temporary cosmetic treatment is actually an advantage since it allows people to jump into cosmetic dermatology for the first time without worrying about permanent, lasting results that they may not be in love with. Botox is a great introduction into the world of anti-aging treatments, so if you’re on the fence about cosmetic treatments then Botox might be the best place to start.
Botox is for all ages
While most people assume that they have to be in their 40s or 50s to benefit from Botox, this is simply not the case. In fact, we see more and more people in their 20s and 30s coming into our office for treatment. Here’s why: Starting early could actually prevent certain lines and wrinkles from getting worse over time. Of course, lines actually need to be present before we can start treating them with Botox.
