There are several cosmetic treatments on the market to help correct visible signs of aging, but BOTOX® is one of the most popular injectable treatments worldwide to relax lines and wrinkles and create a refreshed, more youthful appearance. At Dermatology Associates, our BOTOX® treatments are administered by our dermatologists and are tailored to your specific cosmetic needs.
Contact us today at our locations in Norwood, Franklin, and Foxboro in Massachusetts to schedule a consultation and find out if BOTOX® is right for you.
What is BOTOX®?
Unlike dermal fillers, which are injected underneath the skin, BOTOX® is administered into the facial muscles, where it blocks nerve signals and prevents the underlying muscle activity that causes wrinkles and lines. The facial muscles are temporarily relaxed, creating a naturally youthful appearance that is never fake or exaggerated. BOTOX is one of our top services at Dermatology Associates and is currently used in over 78 countries worldwide. It is one of the most extensively studied neuromodulators on the aesthetic market, ensuring results you can trust.
Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX®?
Men and women who are experiencing moderate to severe lines between the brows as well as crow’s feet and who have no contraindicating medical conditions may be candidates for BOTOX®. Other factors, such as your overall health, cosmetic goals and expectations for treatment, will also be considered in determining if BOTOX® is right for you.
Although BOTOX® is clinically proven to relax wrinkles and fine lines in adults, the effects will wear off after about three months. Individuals who are seeking more dramatic results may be advised to seek alternative treatment options.
Are There Any Side Effects?
BOTOX® is proven to be safe and effective for a wide range of patients, with minor and temporary bruising, swelling, and redness at injection sites being the most commonly experienced side effects. Our medical team will let you know of all possible risks and side effects prior to your treatment.
Visible signs of aging may reappear after BOTOX® wears off, but with regular treatment and a good skincare regimen suggested by our medical team, wrinkles, and fine lines can be effectively managed.
