Botox is a popular neuromodulator that interferes with nerve signals to temporarily prevent muscle movement. Once injected, Botox stops the muscle from contracting, relaxing the skin.
The treatment is completely safe and minimally invasive in preventing new wrinkles. If you’re experiencing early signs of aging or noticing more wrinkles than you did in the past, the Fayette Area Dermatology team can inject Botox into fine lines to eliminate them.
Botox treats dynamic wrinkles. Also called expression lines, dynamic wrinkles are the result of repeated muscle movement. The most common dynamic wrinkles that Botox treats are:
Neuromodulators can’t treat static wrinkles that develop due to volume loss, such as nasolabial folds and hollow cheeks. Instead, Fayette Area Dermatology offers dermal fillers to plump areas of lost volume. These gel-like substances provide immediate results that last for up to 12 months.
Botox treatments are quick and painless. The team at Fayette Area Dermatology applies a numbing anesthetic to make sure you don’t experience discomfort. Next, they carefully inject the medication into your intended muscle. The entire treatment takes just a few minutes, and you can resume your normal activities right away.
While you may notice an immediate softening effect, Botox takes 1-2 weeks to set in. Most people enjoy lasting Botox results for up to 3-6 months. Once the medication gradually fades, you can return to Fayette Area Dermatology for maintenance treatments.
Botox is a versatile treatment that the team can combine with other skin rejuvenation techniques. For a fully customized treatment plan, the team may recommend combining your treatment with fillers. When combined, Botox and fillers can treat dynamic and static wrinkles at the same time.
Fayette Area Dermatology also offers radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and numerous laser treatments to restore youthful skin. To learn more, call the location nearest you or schedule an appointment online today.
