Get smooth, younger-looking skin with one quick, non-invasive cosmetic treatment.
You are considering ways to refresh your appearance and all your thoughts turn to ways to smooth out certain lines and wrinkles in your face. You don’t want to do anything drastic or get surgery but you do want to take a few years off your skin. Dr. Barbara Preussner at For a New You in Holliston, MA is here to tell you how Botox could help.
How does Botox work?
Botox uses a purified form of botulinum toxin that, when administered into the muscles of the face, stops all signals that the nerves send to the muscles. The result? Muscles are temporarily paralyzed and unable to contract, which means that dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle contractions are smoothed away. While Botox results won’t last forever, you can continue to visit our Holliston cosmetic expert for more Botox treatments to make sure that your results last longer.
What can Botox treat?
Botox is designed to reduce the appearance of certain lines and wrinkles of the face. While wrinkles caused by sun damage won’t respond to this cosmetic treatment, frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and wrinkles around the eyes and nose can often be smoothed away with Botox. Botox is the best option for wrinkles that are caused by smiling, frowning, squinting and other facial expressions.
What goes into getting Botox?
Most people love the idea of getting Botox because they can take years off their face without needing surgery or incisions in order to do it. A series of small needles are injected into the muscles of the face to stop them from contracting. This treatment only takes a couple minutes to complete and there is no recovery time, so you can easily come in anytime to get Botox and go right back to your daily routine. While some patients may choose to have the area numbed prior to getting Botox injections, you’ll be happy to hear that most people don’t feel more than a slight pinch because these needles are incredibly thin.
