Your Indianapolis, Batesville and Tipton, IN, dermatologist, Dr. Sonya F. Campbell Johnson at Dermatology Associates, can help you get the youthful look you want. She understands that time catches up with us all and some people, if not most, aren't particularly fond of this notion, which is why she offers Botox.
What is Botox?
Botox is an FDA-approved treatment. It is used to eliminate and/or reduce wrinkles and creases on your face. It does this by paralyzing the muscles that contract and create wrinkles and creases. The muscles are contracted due to the release of a chemical called acetylcholine. When the patient is injected with Botox, the production of acetylcholine is blocked, therefore stopping the contraction of the muscles.
What does Botox help with?
The most common problem areas are frown and worry lines, crow's feet and laugh lines, which are caused as a result of years of laughing, squinting and frowning. After the Botox treatment, you will start to notice smoother skin, which should last about three to six months.
More About Botox Treatment
Botox is a unique cosmetic procedure. It has almost no downtime and doesn't take long to be done or completed; you can actually go back to work right after the treatment. Botox doesn't cause patients to lose their capability to show facial expression and, although it is a simple process, a licensed professional, like our dermatologist at Indianapolis, Batesville and Tipton should administer the Botox treatment. A doctor who understands the sensitivity of the treatment and is an expert when it comes to the facial anatomy should be the only one to conduct this treatment.
