Botox could help take years off your appearance in no time.
Who says that you have to undergo anesthesia, incisions or surgery in order to say goodbye to facial lines and wrinkles? Sometimes all you need is a simple refresher treatment to help smooth out your skin and give you that youthful glow. Our Brookline, MA, dermatologists Dr. Alan Rockoff and Dr. Katherine Fening could give you the results you want with Botox.
By now, you’ve probably heard about Botox treatment. This treatment only requires us to inject a few very thin needles into certain muscles of the face to temporarily stop them from contracting. By preventing them from contracting, this instantly reduces and even eliminates the appearance of certain lines and wrinkles.
Botox is an easy, effective treatment for dynamic wrinkles that appear when you smile, laugh or squint. If you have mild-to-moderate wrinkles on your forehead, around your eyes (often referred to as crow’s feet), wrinkles around your nose and chin or laugh lines and you want to get younger-looking skin, then it might be time to talk to our Brookline, MA, skin doctors about getting Botox.
What is involved in getting Botox treatment?
There are so many benefits to choosing Botox. This treatment alone only takes a couple of minutes, there is absolutely no recovery period (you can return to work or your activities immediately after) and you’ll notice results in a couple of days. Plus, the needles are so thin that you’ll notice nothing more than a slight pinch.
Of course, we know that some people loathe the idea of needles. Don’t worry! If needles make you squeamish but you still want to get Botox then talk to us about applying a numbing gel over the areas prior to administering the injections.
How long do results last?
One thing to keep in mind is that you won’t walk out of our office with a suddenly refreshed appearance. It takes a few days for Botox to work its magic. You’ll see wrinkles smoothing away in as little as three to four days with full results visible within a week.
Botox results last about six months; however, if you love what Botox was able to do for your appearance you can come back in for a refresher treatment to maintain results for longer.
