Using Botox for a more youthful appearance

istock 949489994 One of the areas where the signs of aging occur first is that of the face. When we smile, laugh, and frown, our face slowly develops lines and wrinkles that stay in place as skin laxity increases with age. Muscles used to make facial expressions can also result in the formation of dynamic wrinkles. To address this, many patients believe a facelift is their only option. Instead, Dr. Sharon Richens of Richens Eye Center may recommend the use of cosmetic injectables such as Botox.

How can Botox turn back time?

Botox is just one of many neuromodulators on the market today that can be used in addressing the formation of dynamic wrinkles. This medication is injected directly into the muscles of the face that contribute to dynamic wrinkle formation. It is best utilized for the treatment of:

  • Glabellar lines
  • Forehead folds
  • Crow’s feet

Injections are done right in our practice with the care of our trained providers. Patients will notice over the course of the next week that these dynamic wrinkles will slowly fade and they will enjoy a more youthful appearance.

How long does Botox last?

Most patients who obtain Botox injections will find that they last several months before reinjection is needed. If patients do not maintain routine treatments, they will experience the redevelopment of these dynamic wrinkles. Botox cannot stop the signs of aging, but can rather slow the signs and delay the need for more invasive treatments such as facelifts and forehead lifts. During an evaluation and consultation with Dr. Sharon Richens, patients can discuss their needs and find out if they are a proper candidate for Botox injections.
