BOTOX® Cosmetic Benefits Include Quick Treatment and Beautiful, Subtle Results
If you want to reduce signs of aging and are interested in a non-surgical treatment, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be the solution. At Frisco Plastic Surgery & Medspa, Ken Smart, M.D., offers these injections to reduce wrinkles around your forehead and eyes. BOTOX® Cosmetic benefits are numerous, especially under the experienced care at our Frisco, TX, practice. The treatment can not only reduce lines and wrinkles, but also involves minimal discomfort and virtually no recovery time. Despite its benefits, the injectable is not right for everyone so Dr. Smart will provide a complete consultation to determine whether BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most suitable way to achieve your treatment goals.
BOTOX® Cosmetic offers dramatic results because it can effectively treat several different age-related concerns.
Understanding How BOTOX® Cosmetic Works
BOTOX® Cosmetic began as a treatment to reduce facial spasms. However, doctors quickly realized that the injections had enormous potential as an anti-aging treatment. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are made with botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that is safe in small doses. Once injected in the treatment area, BOTOX® Cosmetic will block the nerve signals that trigger habitual muscle movements. In this way, it can reduce the constant motions that lead to facial wrinkles. We will carefully administer the injections to preserve most of your normal facial movements and expressions for a natural look.
BOTOX® Cosmetic offers dramatic results because it can effectively treat many different aesthetic concerns. Most often, the treatment is used to reduce:
- Crows’ feet
- Horizontal wrinkles on the forehead
- Frown lines
- Creases between your eyebrows
With these combined results, BOTOX® Cosmetic can significantly rejuvenate your appearance and help you to look years younger. Results typically last three to six months, and you can receive regular touchups, as needed.
Additional Benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic
In addition to the outstanding effects on your appearance, BOTOX® Cosmetic offers several additional advantages. First, the treatment is quick. The entire process typically takes about 10 minutes so can return to work and other activities immediately afterwards. Second, the process involves minimal discomfort. Requiring only ice or a topical numbing cream, BOTOX® Cosmetic administration usually produces little more than a slight pinching feeling. Finally, BOTOX® Cosmetic is affordable, and it can be an especially good option if you are not ready to make the investment in facial plastic surgery. It is important to remember, however, that results are not permanent, and additional treatments will require subsequent costs. Therefore, you may eventually want to have a facelift or brow lift to save on repeat treatments.
At Frisco Plastic Surgery & Medspa, we proudly offer free cosmetic consultations. Dr. Smart can explain more about the benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic during this appointment, and he can also determine whether this treatment is the right option for you. While BOTOX® Cosmetic can be a great way to enhance the upper third of your face, it is not as effective on other areas. Fortunately, we also offer a variety of fillers that can reduce lines and wrinkles around your mouth and nose.
