The signs of aging can have a negative impact on one’s appearance. Dr. Pamela Carr of Sugar Land, TX is a dermatologist who works with patients every day in her practice, Carr Dermatology. She hears from patients who are struggling with specific areas of the face where lines and folds have developed. Many of these individuals can benefit from Botox.
Areas of treatment with Botox
Botox can be used on the upper third of the facial area to address wrinkles and folds. The best areas are between the eyebrows, around the eyes for crow’s feet, and on the forehead for forehead lines. There are a few other areas that can be treated, but the results are mild, including the lines around the lips, and the creases around the nose.
How does Botox work?
- Botox is a neuromodulator. Neuromodulators allow the muscles to relax. This, in turn, can smooth areas of the face over the course of just a few days.
- Botox is safe and has been used for years for many medical conditions including hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and overactive bladders.
- Botox is approved by the FDA for both medical and cosmetic use, and is one of the most popular injections requested by name!
How long do the results last?
Most patients achieve results within a few days after the initial injections, and the results can last approximately six months or longer, depending on the amount of Botox used for treatment.
