Works by Inhibiting Muscle Contractions
Besides sun, cigarette smoke, and the aging process, muscle contractions are also a factor in how wrinkled your skin appears and is. Botox tackles this issue by affecting the nerves that cause muscle contractions in your face. As a result, the muscles relax, which eases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Gives You a More Youthful Appearance
One of the main factors that affect how old or young you look is the appearance of wrinkles. More or deeper wrinkles make you appear older, possibly more so than you really are.
With Botox, these wrinkles become less defined and possibly not prominent, giving you a more youthful appearance.
Provides a Natural-Looking Change
Our McKinney, TX, dermatologist can provide just the right dosage and at the correct locations to give your skin a natural appearance while still providing results. Sometimes, when you choose a surgical procedure, the results look fake, and it's noticeable that you had work done.
When you receive Botox, when given appropriately, the results look natural. This is especially the case years later when the surgical effects don't wear off.
Because the results aren't dramatic, you may receive treatment and keep people guessing as to whether you had any help gaining that younger-looking appearance.
Can Be Continuously Given Safely
If you love the appearance of more youthful skin, Botox could be a solution since our practitioner can safely administer maintenance dosages so you may maintain the results. Therefore, you'll be able to have a revitalized appearance for years to come, and our practitioner can even adjust the dosage so the results aren't as dramatic as your skin ages.
Generally, the results last three to four months, though some people notice their skin still looks younger six months later. Before the results wear off, our practitioner can provide another treatment so you may continue to enjoy that revitalized appearance. It then looks like it's how your skin naturally is.
