Facial lines and wrinkles can make patients look older than their actual age. Alta Vista Dermatology understands the desires patients may have to achieve a more youthful appearance, so we provide BOTOX® Cosmetic to residents of Highlands Ranch and Denver, CO.
What is BOTOX®Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a cosmetic product composed of a naturally purified protein that is injected into the muscles to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. BOTOX® is a neuromodulator, which causes the muscles to relax and stop contracting. This can be used to treat lines on the forehead, lines at the outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet), lines between the eyebrows (frown lines), and lines on the neck. In addition to a reduction of lines and wrinkles, patients notice an improvement in the texture of their skin. BOTOX® can be also used to treat migraines, muscle spasms, and excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis. To learn more about the use of BOTOX® for excessive sweating, visit our page on hyperhidrosis treatment.
The BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment involves a number of injections into the areas where patients would like to achieve a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. Although BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are typically tolerable, we offer patients a topical anesthetic if they are concerned about experiencing pain during treatment. BOTOX® is quickly administered in less than 30 minutes.
Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic may be ideal if you are looking for a non-surgical method for attaining a more youthful appearance. BOTOX® Cosmetic can rejuvenate your look, renew your confidence, and boost your self-esteem. It leads as one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dermatology.
What Can I Expect After My BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment?
In about a week after the initial treatment session, patients will notice results that can last for up to six months or longer. There is no downtime after treatment, allowing patients to return to work or other activities immediately following their appointment. The results from BOTOX® Cosmetic can be maintained with regular treatments approximately every six months.
