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.

How Botox from Brookline, Massachusetts, can help you look younger
If you look in the mirror, do you see fine lines and wrinkles crowding your face? Do you want to erase what the years have done to your skin? If you answered yes to these questions, it’s time for you to think about Botox! You’ve probably heard a lot of information about Botox and you may be unsure if it’s the answer for you, but Dr. Alan Rockoff and Dr. Katherine Fening at The Rockoff Dermatology Center in Andover and Brookline, Massachusetts, want to help you say goodbye to your fine lines and wrinkles with Botox.
Botox is a safe medication containing a toxin from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is injected into the skin and works to temporarily restrict movement of the nerves and muscles around the injection site. Wrinkles and fine lines are flattened out and your skin appears smooth and youthful.
Amazing results will be apparent within 2 to 4 days and the results typically last from 4 to 6 months. Dr. Rockoff may recommend maintenance treatments to maintain and enhance your results.
You should consider Botox as a perfect solution to minimize fine lines and wrinkles on your face.
Botox is most commonly used on these areas:
- Your eyes, to minimize crow’s feet
- Your eyebrows, to minimize fine lines called glabella
- Your forehead, to minimize worry lines called furrows
- Your mouth and nose, to minimize smile and laugh lines
When you choose Botox treatment, your dermatologist will begin your treatment using a tiny needle to inject small amounts of the medication under your skin. The number of injections will vary depending on the area being treated, but Dr. Rockoff can give you an idea of what to expect before your treatment begins.
Unlike cosmetic surgery, Botox treatment is minimally invasive and yields maximum results. Treatment is easily tolerated and requires little to no downtime.
