Improve the look of your aging skin without invasive surgery
Botox injections have become increasingly popular as an option that improves the look of the skin and reduces the aging lines on the face without the need to undergo more invasive surgical procedures. It costs much less than invasive surgical procedures and is generally much safer than surgery.
While cosmetic Botox injections are generally safe and effective, it is also important to understand what it can and cannot do, along with any risks involved. Having the right expectations and finding the right cosmetic dermatologist to perform the procedure is key to patient satisfaction.
Dermatologist Dr. Julia Tzu’s Perspective on Botox Treatments
“There are few noninvasive treatments in cosmetic dermatology that offer the dramatic and immediately gratifying results that botox provides. When performed skilfully, results are natural and facial expression is retained. My patients are always amazed by the profound but natural appearing improvement in their wrinkles after their injections.” – Dr. Julia Tzu, MD, FAAD
What is Botox Treatment?
Botox is a prescription drug derived from botulinum toxin type A. Although botulinum toxin is a bacterially derived toxin that was originally discovered for its role in a serious medical condition called botulism, the drug itself is very safe and effective in reducing wrinkles when administered in appropriate doses and the correct anatomic sites by an experienced dermatologist.
When Botox is injected to a site of cosmetic concern, it blocks the nerve impulses that cause contraction of the muscles leading to lines and furrows. Simply put, the muscles that cause wrinkles have a reduced ability to contract, resulting in smoother skin with a youthful appearance.
Getting Botox Treatment for the First Time?
Getting botox for the first time should be an exciting and rewarding experience. Botox injections can provide cosmetic benefits for men and women across all ages and is suitable for all skin types. It’s important to understand your goals for undergoing treatment–are you using botox for prevention or to reduce existing wrinkles? With more emphasis on prevention in skincare and health, more and more people are now using botox for preventative aging (ie. to prevent wrinkles before they start) rather than to reverse actively visible wrinkles. Just like with most activities that foster health, beauty, and wellness, maintenance is key, and it is important to be able to set some time aside a few times a year to maintain wrinkle-free skin, so that more invasive anti-aging treatments are not needed later down the line.
