Patients who are combating the unwanted signs of aging but want to avoid plastic surgery are encouraged to speak to the professionals at Richens Eye Center in St. George, UT and Mesquite, NV about solution such as Botox. Botox is a cosmetic injectable that has been used for many years for cosmetic and medical use. Patients who have dynamic wrinkles around the eyes and forehead will find that injectable treatments such as this are highly effective in reducing their appearance and providing a non-surgical solution to wrinkles and folds.
What is Botox?
Dr. Sharon Richens of Richens Eye Center describes Botox as an injectable treatment used for dynamic wrinkles of the face caused by muscle contractions. This injectable is best used to address:
- Folds on the forehead
- Glabellar lines
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
When patients visit our practice to learn about cosmetic injectables, they are often surprised to learn that we offer a whole line of solutions for anti-aging. Botox is formulated with onabotulinumtoxin A, which inhibits muscle contractions. In doing so, it reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on the face. With one injection, patients can enjoy several months of improvement before reinjection is required to maintain the results.
Who is a candidate?
Patients with dynamic wrinkles on the upper portion of the face who are in good health and over the age of 18 can speak to our team about the benefits of using Botox. Other wrinkles and folds that develop on the face due to skin laxity and aging, but not due to muscle contractions, are better suited for other types of injectables and would not benefit from Botox. Botox can be used in conjunction with other cosmetic solutions to achieve a more youthful appearance quickly and easily—without ever working with a plastic surgeon!
