Enjoy treatment for anti-aging with Botox injection services in Flower Mound, TX area practice
When patients are seeking treatment for aging skin, they often want an anti-aging solution that is non-invasive and affordable. However, the first thought is often plastic surgery. With continued advances in dermatology and medicine, Flower Mound, TX area patients now have alternative less invasive and safer options to consider, including injections of Botox.
Botox is a wonderful anti-aging treatment for both men and women to consider in treating dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. The areas best suited for Botox injections include:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead folds
- Glabellar lines
Botox works by reducing the contraction of specific facial muscles. This smooths the skin and maintains results for several months before patients need to reinject to maintain their appearance and make aging skin a more gradual transition. There is no way to completely stop aging, but Botox provides a way to reduce wrinkles and folds that can contribute to an older look. The injection is formulated with a medication called botulinum toxin type A, which is a neuromodulator that can be used to reduce muscle contractions. Botox was used in medicine long before it became a cosmetic treatment, and has been used for conditions such as chronic headaches, cervical dystonia, sweating, and incontinence. It is approved for cosmetic use by the FDA and is considered a safe, effective way of reducing the signs of aging on the skin.
Who is a candidate for Botox injections?
Treatment of aging skin with Botox can be enjoyed by many patients. We do encourage individuals to come into the Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery for a consultation appointment and determine if this is the right treatment for them. It should be noted that our professionals have a variety of injectable treatments available for patients to consider, including dermal fillers and collagen stimulators. All of these work in separate ways to reduce the appearance of aging skin and volume loss. In fact, some patients use a combination of injectables to achieve their new look, which we sometimes refer to as a “liquid facelift.” All cosmetic injectables can offer something for patients with mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles.
How much does Botox cost?
Many patients ask our team about the cost of treatment. An accurate quote requires undergoing a consultation. Dr. Bryan Selkin finds that the results of Botox can be achieved with varying amounts of the medication. The procedure is priced by vial of Botox, so the cost will depend on how much Botox is needed to achieve the desired appearance. Our team is extremely conservative in the amount of Botox used to eliminate the chance of side effects, so we find that cost overall is relatively affordable for many of our patients interested in the treatment.
How long does treatment take?
Once patients have consulted with our professionals and have determined that Botox is a solution to their concerns, they can have their injections done in-office in just a matter of minutes. The Botox is injected into the areas of concern, and patients are given aftercare instructions by our dermatologist to follow for the next few days as the results begin to appear. We advise avoiding blood thinners such as non-steroidals, vitamin E and omega threes both before and after the procdure. It is important that patients know they will not leave the office with immediate changes, as it can take two days for the Botox to start to kick in. Patients who want immediate, recognizable changes will want to ask the team about using dermal fillers. Some patients can benefit from a combination of both, so we may recommend using both of them for a more dramatic result.
