Botox is a natural, purified protein produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. The protein blocks transmission from specific targeted nerve cells, which causes their corresponding muscles to relax. Essentially, Botox paralyzes the facial muscles that flex to cause wrinkles to form. Not only does the treatment reduce existing wrinkles, it prevents new wrinkles from forming, too.
The paralyzed muscles eventually regain their abilities, and treated wrinkles reappear. If you want your results to last longer than the initial three to four months, you may return to North Texas Cosmetic Surgery for additional injections.
Botox works best when you use it to treat dynamic wrinkles, creases that form in response to repeated muscle movements. Some of the most frequently treated cosmetic features using Botox are:
Before your treatment, expect to visit North Texas Cosmetic Surgery for a detailed consultation. You’ll discuss your desired results and answer questions about your medical history for safety purposes.
Botox is available to many and is especially effective for treating wrinkles and fine lines in individuals aged 30-60. Still, everyone is different and may have distinct needs that disqualify them from safely getting the treatment. For example, if you’re pregnant or nursing, you should hold off on getting Botox injections until that’s no longer the case.
If you’re not a candidate for Botox for any reason, or if Botox doesn’t align with your goals, Dr. Greenberg can direct you to alternative treatments that are a better fit for you.
Botox takes only 30 minutes and provides nearly immediate results. Learn more about Botox and find out if you’re a candidate by calling North Texas Cosmetic Surgery or booking an appointment online today.
