Smooth Away Fine Lines and Wrinkles with Botox
At Houston Dermatology Associates, we believe in providing patients with a wide selection of treatment options for aesthetic concerns. Adult men and women combating the natural aging process and who want to smoothen or diminish lines and folds on the face might want to talk to their Houston, Texas, area dermatologist about injectable neuromodulators such as Botox.
What is Botox, and how is this injectable used in anti-aging?
Botox is one of several neuromodulators that temporarily relaxes the muscle. Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are merely different formulations of Clostridium botulinum. They can be injected into specific facial muscles to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, leading to a more youthful appearance.
Where can these neuromodulators be used?
They are commonly used on forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. Results typically last between three to six months before another injection is needed to maintain the changes.
What else can Botox injections be used for?
While Botox is most well-known for its cosmetic uses, such as fine lines on the face, it also has medical applications for conditions such as neck spasms, excessive sweating, chronic headaches and migraines, and lazy eye. At Houston Dermatology Associates, botox is used to soften lines and for excessive sweating of the underarms..
Are neuromodulator injections safe?
It is important to note that Botox should always be administered by a licensed medical professional for safety reasons. There can be side effects, including headaches and temporary drooping of the eyelids or eyebrows.
Am I a good fit for neuromodulators?
Overall, Botox, Dysport and Xeomin, can be useful tools in the fight against aging when used correctly and under the supervision of a trained medical professional.
