Are you ready to discover what Botox treatment could do for your appearance?
While you might love to laugh and smile, you certainly don’t need the wrinkles to prove it. While lines and wrinkles can be endearing to some, for most it’s an unwanted sign of aging. But not everyone wants surgeries, or time-consuming cosmetic treatments to get results. This is why our Indianapolis, IN, dermatologist Dr. Sonya Campbell Johnson recommend getting Botox.
What is Botox?
Botox is approved to treat everything from minor to severe dynamic wrinkles of the face. Dynamic wrinkles are ones that appear when you make facial expressions like smiling or squinting. That’s what makes Botox such a great option for crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and wrinkles around the nose, brows and mouth. Small injections are administered into certain muscles of the face to relax them and to stop them from contracting. By doing so, this reduces the appearance of these lines and wrinkles.
What are the advantages of getting Botox?
Botox is a great option for someone looking to refresh their appearance without making major, lifelong changes. Our Indianapolis cosmetic dermatologist understands that undergoing cosmetic procedures can be stressful, especially if you don’t really know the results you’ll get. That’s what makes Botox a great option. The results are natural and only temporary.
So, if you aren’t satisfied with how Botox changes your appearance the results will go away after about 4 months. And for those who just can’t get enough of their beautiful results, they can talk to us about how often they should come in for maintenance treatments.
These needles are so thin that most people only notice a small pinch when the needles are placed into the muscles. And if you are more on the squeamish side, then we can also apply a numbing gel over the area beforehand. Once your treatment is complete (it often only takes about 10 minutes) there is absolutely no recovery time. You can head right back to your daily routine.
Botox is an amazing way to give your appearance the little refresher it needs without the fake, altered appearance.
