Frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet can make you feel self-conscious, thankfully, you can minimize their appearance with a quick visit to your cosmetic specialist.
Botox is an FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved injectable neuromodulator derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, which has been used for years to treat migraines and muscles spasms as well as wrinkles and facial lines.
Once the Botox treatment has been injected, your nerves will be unable to send signals to your muscles, in turn preventing the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles. Within a few days you will notice that existing wrinkles have softened in appearance, leaving your skin looking smoother, youthful and refreshed.
Dr. Shifrin offers Botox injections to patients who are looking for:
- Reduced appearance of wrinkles and facial creases
- Faded crow’s feet (the wrinkles next to your eyes)
- Temporary elimination of frown lines
- Treatment of excess sweating in the armpit or hand
Botox can also be used to reduce the appearance of lines and creases around your lips, chin, neck, and corners of your mouth, leaving your skin feeling smooth and your face looking young.
You will witness the effects of Botox after a few days, and the results will last for 3 to 4 months on average, after which you will need additional injections to maintain your youthful appearance.
Dr. Sheila Shifrin has a wealth of experience and years of expertise in injectable neuromodulators and will give you all the information you need to help you make an educated decision.
