In just one appointment, Botox offers a rejuvenated look without a lengthy recovery.
Have you noticed that the lines in your face don't quite match up with your age or the way you feel? "Crow's feet" around the eyes and "frown lines" between the eyebrows can unfairly make you look older or stressed out. At The Rockoff Center, these inconvenient lines can easily be cleared away in one appointment with Botox!
How Botox works
Botox is cosmetic skin therapy aimed at minimizing wrinkles and fine lines near the eyes and forehead. The Botox solution, which is measured out by unit, is administered under the skin using a tiny needle. The main ingredient, purified botulinum toxin, works by temporarily suspending the movement of muscles under the targeted areas. Wrinkles are essentially a side effect of the facial muscles constantly moving. With the muscle movement restricted, however, the wrinkles relax and smooth out within a few days after treatment. Botox's effects typically last between three and four months, although results vary from patient to patient.
Botox is a safe, cost-effective, and minimally invasive procedure at your Andover dermatologist; this makes it an ideal way to reduce wrinkles without going through the cost and recovery of surgery. The results are usually very subtle and the end result leaves you looking refreshed, not constricted. A recent clinical study showed that the vast majority of people who received Botox treatment were very happy with the results; these people reported that they felt their appearance had improved. This is what the Rockoff Center strives for every day - to bring positive change to your reflection in the mirror.
