Injectables: You deserve to look as vibrant as you feel!
Botox® is a type of injectable treatment. Known as a “neuromodulator,” Botox® and other products such as Xeomin® and Dysport® are designed to affect changes in the skin in much the same way. When just the right amount of Botox® or other neuromodulators are injected into exactly the right points in the skin, the active ingredient in this formulation blocks the nerve signals that “tell” your facial muscles to contract. A muscle that does not contract and remains relaxed cannot make a line or fold. These folds are known as “expression lines.” They arise over time due to the repeated act of expressing oneself; for instance, repeated squinting can produce “crow’s feet” around the eyes. Likewise, repeated frowning can create the vertical “11 lines” between the eyes and the horizontal lines on your forehead.
Depending on the tone of your skin and facial movements, these expression lines can arise prematurely. The loss of firming collagen and springy elastin over time can contribute to dynamic lines becoming static lines that are a fixed feature of your face. The effects of sun damage, smoking, and other environmental and lifestyle factors can speed up the changes that naturally occur within your skin (such as collagen loss). So, it is also important to partner with a kind, communicative team to develop a regimen that supports youthful, healthy skin and sustained results from cosmetic treatments such as Botox®.
What to expect, plus the benefits
Botox® is generally very well tolerated by most patients. We can discuss options, such as topicals, to support the most comfortable treatment experience at our office. The formulation itself is expertly and gently applied with very fine needles. So, discomfort is minimized. Results are noticeable fast, often within 24 to 48 hours. Since the process is so non-invasive and well-tolerated, Botox® represents an actual “no-downtime” procedure. You will be able to return to work or other activities right away because the product is typically associated with only minor and temporary swelling, redness, and bruising. At Mitchell Dermatology, we take pride in the accurate and skillful administration of technique-specific treatment such as Botox. With precise application, you will still be able to express yourself. You will look refreshed, not “frozen”!
