CBS News reports that 12 procedures top the list of doctor-delivered cosmetic services. On that list is Botox injectable, an FDA-approved pharmaceutical form of the botulism toxin. Administered by Dr. Sonya Campbell Johnson at Dermatology Associates in Indianapolis, Batesville, and Tipton, IN, Botox reduces the fine lines and wrinkles that make people feel and look older than they are. Could Botox help your face regain a smooth, refreshed appearance?
Your and your face
You only have one, and when it begins to age, lines form:
- At the corner's of the eyes (crow's feet)
- Between the eyebrows
- Across the forehead
- Between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)
- In bands across the neck and above the chin
The muscles in these areas move with our facial expressions, and over time, dynamic wrinkles form. Typically, people between the ages of 25 and 65 notice these facial changes and benefit most from Botox treatments in Indianapolis, Batesville, and Tipton.
What Botox in Indianapolis does
Injected into selected facial muscles with a fine needle, Botox limits muscular movement. The face relaxes and within a few days, Dr. Johnson's patients see a dramatically line-free appearance. Therapeutic effects last three to four months.
First, you'll visit Dermatology Associates for a skin examination and review of your medical history and medications. If you qualify (and most people do), Dr. Campbell Johnson will place a numbing cream on the areas of your skin receiving Botox. As she injects the preparation, you'll notice a mild stinging sensation.
Treatments take about 15 minutes, and afterwards , you'll return to your usual routine. Just avoid gym workouts or any other strenuous activity for about 24 hours. Also, you may see some redness, bruising, or puffiness at the injection sites, but these resolve quickly. Expect your facial smoothness to last up to six months.
Other uses for Botox
Skin doctors, dentists, and other healthcare providers use injectable Botox to relieve Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) of the underarms, hands, feet, face and
scalp. In other words, in the hands of a capable physician, Botox helps people with various cosmetic and medical problems.
