As you age, your skin becomes worn, brittle, and damaged by environmental stressors such as the sun. The resulting wrinkles around your mouth and eyes can make you appear terse and unapproachable. Dr. Kevin Berry can help you fight these signs of aging with regular BOTOX ® Cosmetic treatments.
BOTOX ® Cosmetic is a prescription medication commonly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore your good looks. This FDA-approved serum is injected into facial muscles to relax them, causing them to release their tough hold on your skin. In this way, you can reduce the appearance of frown lines and other signs of aging so that you can feel confident in your appearance.
Refresh Your Looks with BOTOX ® Cosmetic
Over time, muscle tension in your face begins to pull on your skin, marring the smooth contours of your face. These lines are called dynamic wrinkles, and appear around your mouth, eyes, and forehead when you smile or speak. Botox ® Cosmetic restores your youthful appearance by treating dynamic wrinkles such as:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Wrinkles between and around the eyebrows
- And more
BOTOX ® Cosmetic effectively treats these dynamic wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause them. Dr. Kevin Berry will meet with you to discuss your aesthetic goals and whether or not this treatment is right for you.
How it Works
Botox ® Cosmetic is a safe way to give yourself a smooth appearance. By blocking nerve impulses, this injectable serum relaxes target muscles that hold onto tough signs of aging. The limited movement of these muscles will temporarily prevent them from pulling on your skin and surrounding muscles in ways that create wrinkles.
Your treatment will use very thin needles, so you shouldn’t feel any discomfort during your visit. If you have sensitive skin, Dr. Berry will work with you to make sure that you feel comfortable during your treatment. Sessions only take a few minutes, and many people see results after just one treatment. Results vary from patient to patient, but you can expect to see a significant improvement for up to four months following your visit. Your results can become more permanent with regular treatments, recommended every four months for best results.
Is Botox ® Cosmetic Right for You?
Although Botox ® Cosmetic effectively reduces signs of aging, it does not treat everything. If you feel dissatisfied with wrinkles that show even when your face is at rest, you might benefit from dermal fillers instead. Dermal fillers make up for lost support proteins that your body stops producing with age. By returning support to your skin, dermal fillers can make you look years younger. If you want to improve frown lines, marionette lines, cheek hollows, and other static wrinkles, dermal fillers might be right for you.
