What Botox Can Do for You
posted: Sep. 05, 2017.
Wrinkles can be unfair: they can make you look tired, annoyed, or older than you actually feel. The eyes are one of the most noticeable aspects of the face and, unfortunately, the wrinkles that surround them are attention-grabbing as well. But with Botox from your Indianapolis, Batesville, and Tipton, IN, dermatologist, Dr. Sonya Campbell Johnson, you can eliminate the unwanted attention your wrinkles bring to your features, letting your best traits take center stage! Learn more about how Botox can help you here.
How does Botox work?
Botox, derived from proteins that occur in nature, is purified in a laboratory and has been utilized for many years as a way to treat medical issues such as sweating or eye problems. Approved by the FDA for cosmetic use since the early 2000's, Botox can make a big difference in your appearance by stopping the muscle movement under the skin where your wrinkles lie. Your Indianapolis, Batesville, and Tipton dermatologist uses a fine needle to carefully insert the solution into the muscles on the outside of your eyes ("crow's feet") and between them ("frown lines"), which causes them to become temporarily paralyzed. Over a period of a few days, the skin on top of these muscles will gradually smooth out because of the lack of muscle activity, leaving you with a naturally smoother appearance for three to four months.
Is Botox safe?
The safety of Botox has been well-studied. It has been used for medical treatments of muscle spasms since the late 1980s and provides temporary, but effective relief from conditions like uncontrollable blinking and vocal cord issues. When used in a medical setting like Dermatology Associates in Indianapolis, Batesville, and Tipton patients can be assured that cosmetic Botox is safely and responsibly used by qualified medical professionals.
