Can Botox help my unwanted lines and wrinkles?
Botox is a dermatological treatment which freezes the muscles underneath the skin. This relaxes the muscle, smoothing the skin which lies on top and preventing it from moving, which, in turn, prevents new wrinkles from forming. If you have fine lines and wrinkles you wish were not there, you could benefit from Botox treatments.
What is Botox used for?
Your doctor can use Botox to treat lines and wrinkles in the facial area. The most common places for Botox injections include:
- vertical lines between the eyebrows
- horizontal lines on the forehead
- lines around the mouth
- crows feet beside the eyes
- above the eyebrows
- the corners of the mouth
- along the nose
Botox Treatments in Andover and Brookline
When you see your doctor for your Botox treatment, you can expect a short appointment with the actual procedure lasting only about 15 minutes. Your doctor uses a very thin needle to inject Botox underneath the skin and into your facial muscles. While you may feel a small pinch at the injection sites, most patients report that Botox is generally not painful. The procedure will require no downtime and patients can return to their daily activities immediately following the Botox session. The injection sites may be sore or irritated for a day or two following your procedure, but any irritation should resolve itself.
