Signs That BOTOX Injections Are Right for You
When it comes to helping you look young and refreshed, there are many options available. In addition to facial plastic surgery, many of our Philadelphia, PA patients have benefited from getting cosmetic injectables. Our skilled cosmetic plastic surgeons can find the ideal treatment for a patient, helping them looking younger and more refreshed.
Right now, the Jefferson Plastic Surgery team would like to explore the use of cosmetic injectables and when they may be the best option for you and your needs.
About BOTOX Injections
BOTOX cosmetic injections are the most popular type of injectable available today. During a BOTOX Cosmetic session, the safe solution is injected into different parts of the face to help prevent muscle contractions. In the process of stopping muscle contractions, certain kinds of facial wrinkles are no longer visible.
Treatment for Dynamic Wrinkles
Given the way BOTOX works, it’s best for addressing dynamic wrinkles. These are the kinds of wrinkles that appear when you make certain facial expressions. Halting muscle contractions in those areas smooths out the skin and helps you look more refreshed.
Common BOTOX Injection Treatment Areas
The wrinkles most commonly treated with BOTOX injections include:
- Frown lines (between the eyes)
- Forehead furrows
- Crow’s feet
- Certain wrinkles around the mouth
During the consultation process, we can determine if BOTOX injections are the right option for your anti-aging needs.
You Want Cosmetic Benefits Without Surgery
BOTOX injection patients are people who want to experience the benefits of facial plastic surgery without the downtime or risks. Facial surgeries can take hours to perform and weeks to recover from. With BOTOX injections, a session can be performed during your lunch hour, and patients are back to regular activities right after.
Dermal Fillers Are Not Ideal for Your Wrinkles
If you have static wrinkles or issues with hollows and deep creases, BOTOX injections are usually not an ideal treatment. These kinds of aesthetic flaws are best treated with dermal fillers, which are injections designed to add volume to injection sites.
That said, it is possible to combine BOTOX injections with dermal fillers in certain parts of the face. This combined injection therapy helps remove unwanted dynamic wrinkles and static lines/creases.
You Understand That the Results Are Temporary
It’s important for all BOTOX injection patients to have realistic expectations about treatment. This includes understanding that BOTOX Cosmetic results only last for several months. By the end of that time, dynamic wrinkles will start showing up again. Thankfully, patients can undergo repeat BOTOX injection sessions to prolong the benefits of treatment.
Considering All Treatment Options for Wrinkles
BOTOX injections are great for many patients, but they are not the only answer out there. We will help you consider all treatment options available so you can make the most well-informed decision possible about your aesthetic needs and goals.
