Patients in Chagrin Falls, OH can trust Botox injections as an anti-aging treatment
Patients faced with fine lines and wrinkles on the skin are often concerned about how they make them look older than they feel. It is common for men and women to seek anti-aging treatment options to turn back time. Fortunately, plastic surgery is not the only way to achieve results. Instead, patients in the area of Chagrin Falls, OH who are interested in treatment of fine lines and wrinkles can turn to the professionals at Seriously Skin Cosmetic and Laser Medicine to learn more about injections of Botox.
Our practice is pleased to provide injectables such as neuromodulators which can be used for anti-aging purposes. Botox is just one of several available, including Dysport and Xeomin. All of these are used in the same manner and formulated in a similar way to achieve results. Neuromodulators are formulated with botulinum toxin type A which is an injection that is administered directly into the muscles of the face. The muscles are then more relaxed, which reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles that have formed over time because of muscle contractions. This makes Botox injections best used for areas such as the:
- Folds on the forehead
- Glabellar lines
- Wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet)
When patients are experiencing issues with deep, noticeable folds in these areas caused by muscle contractions, they can expect results with Botox injections.
Is Botox safe?
Absolutely! At our practice, we only use injectables that are approved by the FDA for improving fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox is one of many cosmetic products used at Seriously Skin Cosmetic and Laser Medicine for anti-aging benefits. Botox has been used for many years in medicine, treating conditions such as overactive bladder, excessive sweating, and chronic headaches and migraines. Our professionals may encourage patients to learn about the history of Botox and other neuromodulators, so they understand how safe and effective they can be for anti-aging.
What can I expect during my appointment?
Botox injections are done quickly right in our office. Our professionals will first consult with patients to determine if Botox is right for them. Alternatives may be considered or used in conjunction with Botox, depending on the results patients want to achieve. Our team will then administer the injections into the muscles of the face that are problematic. Patients will receive aftercare instructions and will leave the practice to go about the rest of their day with little to no interruption. Minor side effects that may occur include redness, itching, and bruising at the injection site. After a few days, patients will start to notice changes in the appearance of these fine lines, wrinkles, and folds, and will enjoy their results for several months before requiring reinjection to maintain their new look.
Who is a candidate for Botox injections?
Most patients are appropriate candidates for injections with Botox. We do encourage patients to book a consultation appointment and evaluation with our team to determine if it is the best solution. There are alternative injections that can be used to achieve comparable results in the event Botox is not considered the best choice.
What alternatives might a professional recommend?
There are several types of cosmetic injectables that can be used to enhance one’s appearance, including dermal fillers and collagen stimulators. These may be known as recognizable brands such as Sculptra or Juvéderm. These injectables work differently from Botox or other neuromodulators as they either stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin or inject gels that are formulated with hyaluronic acid that immediately attract water and add volume to the wrinkles and folds of concern. In some cases, patients may utilize multiple products to achieve the results they’ve always wanted!
