Thinking about Botox?

We all know someone who looks far younger than their actual age. For some, this is due to good genetics or meticulous sun protection. For most of us however, looking our best requires a conscious effort to maintain the appearance of our skin. A proper daily skin care routine is essential, but sometimes even the best skin care isn't enough to treat facial expression lines. This is when you could consider Botox cosmetic injections.

Botox cosmetic injections have been used safely for years to treat expression lines around the eyes, between the brows, and on the forehead. The effects of Botox generally last up to 3 months and will relax facial expression lines which gives you a more youthful, wrinkle free appearance.

A common myth about Botox is that only people over a certain age can benefit from these injections. Truth be told, I am seeing more younger patients in their mid to early 30s that have regular Botox injections in smaller doses as preventative treatment for expression lines. Botox cosmetic not only treats existing facial expression lines, but also prevents new expression lines.

One of the biggest concerns I hear from patients is how they do not want to appear "frozen" or have people notice they've had a cosmetic procedure done. An experienced injector will be able to administer the correct dose of Botox to achieve the desired effect which is different with each patient. When you come in to Dermatology PA for a consultation, I will spend time discussing the goals of your cosmetic treatment to ensure you are happy with the results!

If you are considering Botox cosmetic injections, please call (952) 374-5995 to schedule a free cosmetic consultation.
