Those facial lines and wrinkles are getting to you--especially the two vertical lines between your eyebrows. You look angry all the time, and you're not angry! What's the solution? It may be Botox from The Rockoff Dermatology Center in Brookline and Andover, MA. Dr. Alan Rockoff and Dr. Katherine Fening use this FDA-approved medication to smooth the lines that make us look different from who we are inside. Do you qualify for this popular and effective skin treatment?
What is Botox?
It's the top cosmetic skin procedure in the United States, says the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and it's popularity increases annually. Made of purified botulism toxin injected under the skin into facial muscles, Botox effectively stops dynamic wrinkling, those lines which appear over time as we laugh, frown, grimace, smile, and simply express ourselves.
Perfect for moderate to severe wrinkles between the eyebrows, at the corners of the eyes (crow's feet), across the forehead, between the nose and mouth and more, Botox limits how much the muscles of the face move. With limited movement comes a smoothing of the skin that's noticeable right after injection at your Brookline and Andover dermatologist's office.
Advantages of Botox
The number one advantage is that it really works. Lines disappear quickly, and skin stays smooth for up to six months. Other benefits include:
- Quick treatment at The Rockoff Dermatology Center (under one hour--perfect as a lunchtime procedure)
- Comfort (the needles are fine)
- No downtime (just avoid anything strenuous--such as your aerobics class--for 24 hours)
Yes, versatile Botox injections help other medical issues. For example, dentists may use Botox to alleviate jaw joint pain. Botox also treats hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), overactive bladder, and migraine headache pain.
Side effects of Botox
Side effects of this safe treatment are minimal--just a mild stinging sensation during the treatment. Afterwards, patients may notice some redness, swelling and mild bruising, but these resolve quickly. Dr. Rockoff or Dr. Fening will review your medical and prescription history and do a careful skin examination before recommending any aesthetic skin procedure, including Botox.
