Fine lines, wrinkles, and folds can develop on the face as we age. Both men and women who visit the practice of DSA Dermatology want to learn about the ways to age gracefully. While we cannot stop or reverse the hands of time, we can definitely do our best to slow them down! Using injectables such as Botox, Juvéderm, and Restylane, patients can do just that!
One popular cosmetic treatment requested in our practice is Botox. This injectable medication is used to reduce muscle contractions. While it has been used in the past for conditions such as cervical dystonia and more recently, migraine headaches and overactive bladder, it is most commonly associated for cosmetic enhancements. Botox has been used for decades to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on the upper portion of the face. This includes around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead.
By minimizing the contractions of the muscles, the superficial wrinkles and folds of the skin can be smoothed out. This results in a more beautiful, youthful appearance after just one treatment. However, the results do not last forever. Most patients will enjoy the benefits of Botox for approximately six months after their initial injections. To maintain the new look, patients are encouraged to visit DSA Dermatology regularly for follow-up injections to slow the signs of aging.
Botox can also be used in conjunction with dermal fillers, which can provide immediate, noticeable results straight from the dermatologist’s practice. Juvéderm and Restylane are created from hyaluronic acid, which attracts water molecules, adding volume to the treatment area.
Patients in Plano, TX and the surrounding areas are welcome to contact Drs. Achtman and McConnell of DSA Dermatology to learn about the benefits of Botox and other injectables such as dermal fillers. Our team educates patients on how these cosmetic treatments can help in slowing the unwanted signs of aging in both men and women.
