You’ve noticed many of your peers are looking younger or more refreshed these days. What’s their secret? For most, it’s not a good night’s sleep — it’s Botox in Burlington. The non-invasive treatment smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes for fresh, youthful, radiant skin. And the best thing? You can find expert Botox treatments from Dr. James P. Kostas at Complete Dental Care.
Why Wrinkles and Fine Lines Occur
No matter how strict is your skin care regimen, most people will experience some amount of wrinkles or fine lines as they age. Skin slowly loses its elasticity over the years, and exposure to sunlight and other environmental factors takes a gradual toll on the appearance of the facial tissue. Wrinkles are especially likely to form around the eyes and in the forehead — areas we commonly refer to as crow’s feet or smile/frown lines.
These wrinkles can be the sign of a life well-lived — but they can also cause you to look older than you really are. Botox helps.
How Botox Works
Botox injections work by freezing the muscles in the forehead and eyes that cause the skin to wrinkle when they contract. The Botox treatment can be used to smooth out existing wrinkles, or to prevent the contractions that are likely to cause wrinkles to form later on.
Botox is injected directly into the facial tissue where wrinkles and fine lines take away from your youthful appearance. You’ll feel little more than a tiny prick during the Botox treatment, so there’s no need for anxious jitters or local anesthesia beforehand.
Benefits of Botox
Botox offers adults a number of advantages. Some of the most commonly cited include…
- Small needles keep pain to a bare minimum.
- Injections take just about five minutes.
- Notice younger, smoother skin in just a few days.
- Results can last for several months.
Botox vs. Dermal Fillers
At Complete Dental Care, we are pleased to offer patients both Botox and dermal fillers to fit different needs. Dr. Kostas is certified in the administration of both by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics.
Botox is best for treating lines in the upper portion of the face — those around the eyes and in the forehead. It works by freezing these muscles, preventing their wrinkle-causing contraction. Dermal fillers are better for lines around the mouth, and use an injectable filler to smooth out skin by plumping up the tissue beneath the wrinkles.
Before treatment, you and Dr. Kostas will thoroughly discuss your needs and desires to determine which is best for you.
