Are you concerned about creases and wrinkles on your forehead and on the skin around your eyes? Known as dynamic wrinkles, these skin issues develop from repetitious facial movements, such as squinting, smiling, and frowning. With the use of BOTOX Cosmetic, we may be able to temporarily stop the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, and Crow's feet. BOTOX is made from a specialized strain of botulinum toxin type A. It works to temporarily "freeze" the facial muscles that enable those expressions, letting the skin rebound on its own. At Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jean-Denis Boucher performs BOTOX to help patients attain youthful, rejuvenated outcomes. Our team welcomes you to reach out to us in San Antonio, TX to book a consultation.
What are the benefits of BOTOX?
Dynamic wrinkles can make you feel older and even convey to others that you are unhappy, worried, or tired – even when you aren’t. BOTOX works to erase the appearance of these wrinkles, so you appear younger and more refreshed. Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic is proud to offer BOTOX for the following reasons:
- Safe: BOTOX has a proven track record of safety and effectiveness. In fact, it is the most widely researched and performed cosmetic procedure to date, with countless success stories.
- Quick: The entire BOTOX procedure can be completed in as little as 10 minutes. Patients can come in for their appointment during a lunch break and return to work with no one the wiser.
- Repeatable: BOTOX is not permanent, but results can last for months with the right care. Touch-up treatments can be performed as needed to maintain results.
Am I A Candidate For BOTOX?
Patients who desire a noninvasive alternative to soften frown lines, Crow's feet, or forehead wrinkles may be ideal candidates for BOTOX procedures at Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic. This can be a good option if you have prominent "11" lines between the eyes (glabellar lines) that cause a withered, angry, or aging look. BOTOX treatments have increased in popularity with younger patients, too. Although women and men between the ages of 20 – 30 may not yet present with the early signs of aging, BOTOX can be utilized as a preventive solution to fend off the natural process of aging by temporarily reducing or delaying the development of facial wrinkles.
How Does BOTOX Work?
Women and men who want a minimally invasive option to smooth frown lines, forehead creases, or Crow's feet may be great candidates for BOTOX in San Antonio, TX. Typically, your injections can be carried out during your consultative appointment. The formula will be injected into the designated areas of your forehead using a fine needle. The treatment itself takes approximately ten minutes, and most patients say any brief discomfort is mild (like a pinching or pinprick feeling). BOTOX injections generally do not involve downtime so you can get right back to your day. You might notice some redness, swelling, and bruising in the treatment areas, but this should fade as your results take shape over the next 2 – 3 days. BOTOX can offer up to four months of natural-looking, youthful improvements. Dr. Boucher will talk to you about planning regular touch-ups as part of your personalized treatment plan.
Is BOTOX safe?
Yes, BOTOX is considered safe for most people if they have been approved by a medical professional before treatment. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there are always potential risks involved. These will be discussed with Dr. Boucher during your consultation. We always recommend that patients research any risks and side effects before undergoing any procedure.
How do you prepare for BOTOX?
There is no special preparation required before receiving BOTOX injections. Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic can provide a simple set of pre-and post-injection instructions for you to follow. In general, it is recommended that patients avoid taking blood-thinning medications to avoid excess bruising or bleeding at the injection site.
Do BOTOX results look natural?
Our skilled team in San Antonio, TX, always takes a natural approach when it comes to cosmetic treatments. Dr. Boucher will determine the best dosage and injection sites to achieve your desired results. The goal is always to provide subtle, yet noticeable improvements that look like yourself - only more refreshed and rejuvenated.
