HOW CAN BOTOX HELP DECREASE WRINKLES AND FINE LINES?
First, let’s introduce Dr. David Sneed. one of Austin’s first Diamond level Botox injectors. Dr. Sneed continues to be be one of the most sought out Botox providers in Central Texas.
WHAT IS BOTOX?
Botox is the brand name for a purified form of botulinum toxin type A. When injected in small doses into specific muscles, Botox blocks the chemical signals that cause muscles to contract. When the muscles can’t tighten, the skin flattens and appears smoother and less wrinkled.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Botox in Austin as a temporary treatment for moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. It is also used to treat other facial wrinkles such as the lines that fan out from the corners of the eyes (“crows feet”) and lines in the forehead. There are also many other alternative Austin Botox uses you may not be aware of.
WHAT CAUSES MY WRINKLES?
Is it just aging? Too much sun? Too much stress? In general, how skin ages and wrinkles is a complex process. It isn’t just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, damage caused by free radicals, and so on; it’s a combination of many factors.
The lines that appear between your brows (glabellar lines) actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. You may have heard the expression “wearing your emotions on your sleeve,” but in reality you wear them on your face. If you’re angry or annoyed, for example, you knit your brows together. Underneath your skin, your facial muscles contract, cause a pleating of the overlying skin, and then, as anyone can see, you’re frowning.
After years of crinkling and wrinkling, those glabellar lines start to linger longer and can become more pronounced. For women, whose faces tend to be more animated than men’s, and whose skin is typically more delicate, these lines may appear exaggerated and more permanent.
Fortunately, there is a way to temporarily reduce moderate to severe lines between your brows (glabellar), in your forehead (frontallis), and around your eyes (“crows feet”). Treatment from the best Botox treatment available in Austin can visibly smooth and soften moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. An improvement can be seen within days and may last up to 4 months, although results may vary. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women surveyed rated the improvement in the appearance of frown lines between their brows as moderate to better 1 month after treatment
The number of injections needed depends on many factors, including your facial features, the extent of the wrinkling and the specific area being treated. For example, crow’s-feet usually require two to five injections. Furrows in your forehead could take eight or more injections.
Austin Botox injections take about 10 to 20 minutes. You may experience mild pain with the injections, but most people find the discomfort tolerable. The procedure requires no anesthesia and the benefits of Botox are growing at a rapid pace.
