Some facial lines are due to sun exposure, and some are due to genetics. Others are dynamic, or due to facial expressions. Many times these expressions are unconscious: We are frowning in our sleep or squinting against the bright light of the sun. These dynamic lines can age us dramatically, but Botox can help.
It can get rid of facial lines, such as crow’s feet, forehead creases, frown lines, brow lines, neck bands, and other wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. Botox injections are generally injected directly into the muscle with ultra-fine needles, where they work to block the nerve impulses and relax the muscles that cause the wrinkles.
There is no downtime with Botox as there can be with other cosmetic surgery procedures, and you will be able to see results in as little as seven days. Your skin will have a smoother, tauter appearance, and you will look younger and more approachable.
Our Medical Spa in Houston, Texas, has a full range of options for correcting wrinkles and restoring the youthful contours of your face. Botox may be used in conjunction with injectable dermal fillers like Sculptra to fill deeper smile lines or to enhance and rejuvenate your entire face.
