Discover the top four benefits of getting Botox from a qualified dermatologist here in Pasadena and Houston, TX.
Botox has become one of the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic treatments in the US. In 2017 alone, 1.5 million people got Botox injections. Botox is a reliable and safe way to smooth away those lines and wrinkles that seem to pop out whenever you smile. While smiling more is certainly never a bad thing, our Pasadena and Houston, TX, dermatologists also understand that you don’t want it to give away your age. Here are the benefits of getting Botox treatment,
Treats Early Signs of Aging
Take a moment to look in the mirror. Now smile. When you smile do you notice certain lines and wrinkles appearing more prominently? If so, these lines (known as dynamic wrinkles) respond the best to Botox. In fact, Botox is FDA approved to treat crow’s feet (lines around the eyes), forehead wrinkles, laugh lines (wrinkles around the nose and mouth) and furrow lines (the vertical lines between the brows).
Treatment is Fast and Painless
If you are looking to improve your appearance but don’t want to spend hours in our office then you’re in luck: It only takes a few minutes to administer Botox, and most patients report only feeling a slight, temporary sting during treatment. Of course, you may also choose to talk with us about numbing the area prior to treatment. If you are looking to improve your appearance on your lunch break, then it may be time to consider Botox.
There’s No Recovery Time
Most people these days do not have time to take off work, especially for cosmetic and elective procedures. The good news is that you can return to work or your normal routine immediately after Botox. While you may notice some redness or tenderness at the injection sites, side effects are minimal and usually go away with 24 hours.
It’s a Temporary Solution
If you are new to the cosmetic world you may be a bit nervous about undergoing your first treatment. The good news is that Botox is often a great place to start. Results last anywhere from 4-6 months, depending on certain factors, and if you love your results then you can also get maintenance treatments once or twice a year. If Botox isn’t for you, no problem! Just let the results fade. It’s a great way to find out if cosmetic dermatology is right for you.
