Are you annoyed by the development of horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, or frown lines? These common signs of facial aging are perfectly normal, but their premature appearance is preventable. BOTOX® treatments are easy and can help to prevent and minimize these types of lines and wrinkles without the need for any surgery or downtime.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a type of injectable liquid that is commonly used for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles. It works by relaxing underlying muscles that form these types of wrinkles, causing them to become less deep. This treatment has been used to safely help thousands of patients both cosmetically and medically over the course of two decades.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
After we inject the product into your face, it remains in this area for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles. It offers long-lasting wrinkle reduction results for multiple months. The product itself has been specifically purified under the strictest laboratory conditions. Its manufacturer is Allergan, a company with a reputation for safety of over 20 years.
What Conditions Does BOTOX® Treat?
In addition to crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes, BOTOX® treatments can be used to target forehead lines and the lines in between the eyebrows. During a consultation at our office, we can assess your wrinkles and help you determine if this product can treat them.
Is BOTOX® Appropriate for Everyone?
This form of treatment is safe and effective for a large majority of patients; however, the injections should not be administered without an initial consultation.
If you feel that you would benefit from BOTOX® treatments, we encourage you to set up an appointment at the office of Dr. James DeStephens to discuss your treatment goals. You can also undergo a facial analysis at this time to help us determine if BOTOX® is the best treatment for your wants and needs. We are proud to offer a number of treatments at our office in Gainesville that aim to help you look and feel your best, regardless of your age. Contact us today to book an appointment and get started.
