Best known for eliminating frown lines between your eyebrows and crow’s feet around your eyes, Botox Cosmetic targets the underlying causes of both. Years of using the same muscles frowning and squinting causes the skin to wrinkle. Dr. Austin, or one of the highly skilled aesthetics team at CANE + AUSTIN Medi Spa, injects Botox into these “tired” muscles to help temporarily reduce muscle activity.
Botox is a neurotoxin that’s derived from Clostridium botulinum, a natural organism that is mostly inactive and nontoxic. The injections are virtually painless, and the result is a visible smoothing of your frown lines and crow’s feet. The whole procedure takes about 10 minutes.
For moderate to severe frown lines, many women and men see a visible difference 24 to 48 hours after receiving Botox injections. Typically, the results last up to four months.*
The beauty of Botox injections is that they are a minimally invasive, nonsurgical approach to smoothing frown lines and crow’s feet. Side effects are mild and usually disappear in a couple of days. They may include inflammation, tenderness, swelling, or redness in the treated area. You can usually return to your daily activities immediately following a treatment.
You absolutely still look like yourself after a Botox treatment. Dr. Austin is a medical expert in facial anatomy, so he knows exactly the technique that’s right for your specific needs. After treatment, you still have the ability to show facial expressions, but the lines surrounding them are less noticeable.
Botox results are temporary, lasting about four months. If you want to maintain the results of your first treatment, talk to Dr. Austin about a customized treatment plan that’s right for you. If you don’t have additional Botox treatments, your frown lines and crow’s feet gradually return to what they looked like before treatment.
If you’ve been thinking about the convenience of Botox treatments as a way to look as young as you feel, without surgery or downtime, give Dr. Austin a call or schedule a consultation online.
