What are Botox® Treatments?
Botox® works by binding with neuromuscular (nerve-muscle) junctions preventing the targeted muscle from contracting. This causes the muscle to relax, and when the muscle movement stops the wrinkle it was creating is markedly improved or eliminated. The effects of Botox® last about three to four months. Botox® is excellent for improving wrinkles between the eyebrows, laugh lines and forehead creases. It can also be used for lip line improvement.
Botox® injections in Doylestown / Bucks County relax facial muscles to treat minor imperfections in the skin, including laughter lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet and acne scars. With results lasting for up to four months, Botox® is an alternative to more invasive cosmetic surgeries.
Botox® — a trade name for botulinum toxin type A, also known as onabotulinumtoxinA — is the fastest-growing cosmetic procedure in the United States. The staff at the Plastic Surgery Associates office is ready to meet the demand for Botox® in Philadelphia and Doylestown. Please contact the office today to discover more details about the benefits of Botox®.
Who is a candidate for Botox® treatment?
The ideal candidate is someone who wants to minimize the signs of aging that result from the loss of fat around the eyes, cheeks or in the mouth area. Other persons who may benefit from Botox® injections are those who desire more definition in the cheek or chin area of the face or who have minor facial deformities. During an initial private consultation, Dr. Silberman will determine and suggest the right procedure for you.
Botox® is considered a very effective way to remedy the signs of aging, especially wrinkles. Most Doylestown Botox® patients are between the ages of 35 and 60 and generally choose the procedure to avoid more intensive surgeries, such as face lifts and forehead lifts. Or they may select Botox® as an additional procedure to enhance the results of a cosmetic surgery such as eyelid surgery or brow lift.
The most popular reasons for using Botox® include:
- Forehead creases
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Frown and laugh lines extending from the nose to the corners of the mouth
There are other types of lines and wrinkles that can be treated with Botox®. However, wrinkles caused by gravity or sun exposure will not respond to the injections because these creases are created by the skin, not by the underlying muscles.
Plastic Surgery Associates welcomes questions about Botox® where the staff’s experience has helped hundreds of area Botox® patients from Philadelphia, Doylestown, Bucks County and surrounding areas.
