Dermatologist near Flower Mound, TX describes the benefits of Botox injections
At the Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery, patients in the area are encouraged to book an appointment with our staff to discuss the advantages of cosmetic injections. Our dermatologist, Dr. Bryan Selkin, provides injections, including Botox, for patients who want to enjoy the benefits of addressing the signs of aging on the facial area. Many fine lines and wrinkles are attributed to dynamic tension from the muscles of the face, and by injecting medications such as Botox into these areas, patients can enjoy a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Botox is a neuromodulator. It works by reducing muscle contractions in the facial area that result in dynamic wrinkles and folds. By doing this, the skin can become smooth and patients appear younger. This makes it the perfect alternative to plastic surgery such as a face lift, which can:
- Be expensive for the patient
- Leave behind unwanted scarring
- Increase the risk of infection
- Require extensive recovery and healing
With Botox, patients can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the facial area on a non-permanent basis. Most patients will enjoy the results for approximately four to six months before additional injections are required to maintain the appearance. This means that patients can enjoy the benefits of a youthful appearance without a long-term commitment. The use of Botox on a regular basis can result in a gradual slowing of the aging process, as the aging process cannot be completely stopped or reversed.
Who is a candidate for Botox?
Most patients are appropriate candidates for Botox injections. These injections are formulated with botulinum toxin type A, which can be used for most patients with little to no side effects. There are, however, some common side effects which may occur and are short-term, such as redness, itching, and bruising at the injection site. All these instances are discussed by the doctor before injections are completed so patients are well-aware of what to expect during and after their treatments.
What are the benefits of Botox?
Our dermatologist has used Botox and other dermal injections for a variety of cosmetic purposes, and encourages patients to ask about Botox because it is:
- Minimally invasive
- Fast and effective
- FDA approved as safe
- Less expensive than plastic surgery
Where can Botox be used?
Botox works differently from dermal fillers such as Juvéderm. Instead of filling a fine line or wrinkle directly with a gel to add volume and smooth the skin, Botox works by reducing the contractions of the muscles in the face. This is often done to treat wrinkles between the eyebrows, folds on the forehead, and the fine line that develop around the eyes and are commonly known as crow’s feet. In addition to using Botox injections, patients can use these in conjunction with other dermal fillers or collagen stimulators to achieve the best results. During an initial consultation appointment, patients can point out their areas of concern and discuss possible options for treatment.
What is the process of obtaining Botox injections?
After a medical background review and consultation, Dr. Bryan Selkin will provide the injections within just a few minutes right in the treatment chair. Patients are given aftercare instructions and are welcome to contact the office if they have any concerns following their injections.
