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 Does BOTOX® Treat?
Botox is a cosmetic injection which treats muscle-related lines and wrinkles. It’s derived from botulinum toxin type A. Although botulinum toxin is a bacterially derived toxin 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.
Botox 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.
These wrinkles form at the sides of the eyes and often appear when you smile. However, more severe crow’s feet is visible even when your face relaxes. The eyes are one of the most prominent aspects of the face and often where other’s look first, making these wrinkles an unfortunate indicator of age.
The vertical lines found between the eyebrows are known as frown lines. These lines often produce unwanted expressions of exhaustion or anger even when your face is relaxed. Botox helps relax the muscles between the eyebrows for a smoother complexion and a more relaxed appearance.
Forehead lines run horizontally across the forehead. Similar to frown lines, forehead lines create unwanted facial expressions such as a look of surprise even when you don’t feel this way. As you age, these lines only grow deeper and continue to age your face.
These lines appear on either side of the nose and are most prominent when you scrunch your nose but can be visible even when your face relaxes. Dr. Tzu carefully injects the needle on either side of the nose for a smooth, youthful appearance around another prominent facial feature.
