Discover the many ways in which Botox can take years off your face.
We all know how good it feels to get carded when we walk into a restaurant or bar. So, when the requests for your ID stop coming you may be concerned that fine lines and wrinkles may be giving away your age. Whether you simply want to feel more confident in your appearance or you want to start targeting lines and wrinkles early in life as a preventive measure, turning to our Tipton, IN, dermatologist Dr. Sonya Campbell Johnson for Botox may give you the results you’re looking for.
Where is Botox injected?
It’s important to understand Botox’s capabilities so you can get honest about the results you want and whether Botox is right for you or whether another cosmetic treatment might be better suited to your needs. This is why sitting down with our Batesville, IN, dermatologist for a consultation is the very best way to find out if Botox is right for you. Botox is FDA approved to treat moderate to severe lines and wrinkles of the forehead, eyes, and lower face. This includes,
- Forehead lines
- “Bunny lines”
- Lines between eyebrows (“7s”)
- Crow’s feet
- Hooded eyes
- Vertical lines around the mouth
- Chin dimpling
- Jawline and neck
How does Botox work?
Botox works differently from dermal fillers, which are used to plump areas that have lost their volume due to a lack of collagen and elastin production. Instead, Botox temporarily stops the muscles of the face from contracting, which smooths away and reduces the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles (those same lines and wrinkles that are accentuated whenever you smile or frown).
How long does Botox last?
There are many factors that can impact the longevity of your results but on average, most patients see results for about 3-4 months. Some patients, particularly first-time patients, may not see results as long as someone who’s received multiple treatments. Some people’s results may last only 2 months while others may last up to six.
Can I keep getting Botox?
If you love the results you’re getting from Botox, then you may want to discuss getting regular Botox treatments to refresh your appearance and to maintain your results for longer. Most patients come in every six months for Botox “touch-ups”.
