At DSA Dermatology, our professionals can help Plano, Texas, area patients with several medical and cosmetic dermatology concerns. This includes offering aesthetic treatments to help with the signs of aging, particularly under-eye wrinkles and fine lines across the face. One way to address these concerns is with cosmetic injectables, such as Botox, which are readily available with Drs. Daniel S. Achtman and Jordan Achtman of DSA Dermatology.
What is Botox?
Understanding Botox and how it works is the first step in finding out if it is right for you! Our team of professionals helps patients improve their facial appearance with Botox and other injectables, such as dermal fillers. Botox is a medication designed to reduce contractions in the muscles in which it is injected. This makes it a popular neuromodulator for treating the fine lines and wrinkles caused by muscle tension, specifically those known as “dynamic wrinkles and folds.” Instead of adding volume to the area as traditional hyaluronic acid dermal fillers do, Botox works at the source, paralyzing muscles to reduce tension and smoothing away wrinkles and folds, contributing to an aged appearance.
Where does Botox work best?
During a consultation visit with Drs. Daniel Achtman and Jordan Achtman, you can undergo an initial evaluation to determine if Botox can help your unique needs. It has been found that Botox can help with the following:
- Under eye wrinkles
- Wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet)
- Forehead folds
- Glabellar lines (lines between the eyebrows)
When it is determined that you are a good candidate for Botox injections, our team will assess your current situation and decide if it will assist with the specific areas of concern you would like to address. If not, alternative options, such as hyaluronic acid dermal fillers or collagen stimulators, may be discussed. We help you choose the best for your aesthetic goals and treatments that are within your budget.
Can Botox be preventative for DSA Dermatology patients?
In some cases, patients may use Botox, where dynamic wrinkles are starting to form to delay the need for more invasive procedures such as plastic surgery. Botox can be injected into the specific areas that are becoming problematic to smooth mild wrinkles and fine lines effectively. By receiving routine injections, individuals can effectively preserve their youthful appearance for an extended period. In fact, they may only require surgical procedures several years later, thanks to the range of cosmetic injectables that are currently available.
