Treatment areas and results
The most dramatic results from Botox can be seen on the upper third of the face – “elevens” between the brows, forehead furrows, and crow’s feet. It can also be used off-label to relax a downturned smile, refine smoker’s lip lines, or under the crease of the nose to reduce a gummy smile. Regardless of the area of application, Dr. Carr applies a great deal of experience and artistry for results that look naturally refreshed; not fake or frozen. Improvement typically lasts four months. If you continue to get periodic touch-ups, the muscles in treated areas harmlessly atrophy from being relaxed. That could mean you need Botox, less often in the future.
An estimated 220 million people live with hyperhidrosis. If you have excessive sweating under your arms or elsewhere, talk with Dr. Carr. Botox can help to get sweating under control by blocking production of the chemical that activates your sweat glands. Most patients see significant improvement – up to 87 percent – with dryness lasting as long as 6 months.
Botox has become extremely popular, but that doesn’t mean that you should trust just anyone with your appearance and your health. Botox is a real medicine, available only by prescription from a doctor. Call Carr Dermatology at (281) 972-6494 to learn more about safe, effective rejuvenation with Botox.
