If you are looking for something to improve your facial looks, then a Botox technique is for you. Botox is one of the most preferred methods to deal with frown lines, wrinkles, and other facial blemishes that destroy your looks. Botox can also help you with a redefinition, which makes you have a much younger face. Matthew W. Shawl, MD, is a Union Square facial plastic surgeon who can assess your skin situation and introduce restorative procedures to help you retain your youth.
Why go for a Botox procedure?
Botox is a common treatment; it limits muscle movement in various parts of your body. The treatment is most commonly used for your face, as most aging marks arise through repeated laughing and other facial expressions. What makes Botox special is how immediate the treatment works. That is why you will find up to 7 million Americans choosing it as their to-go beauty treatment annually. Botox works well for all types of skin. However, you will need an expert who understands the proper areas to inject for the best results. Dr. Shawl is an expert who offers the treatment in addition to Jeuvea™, which also works with the same principle as Botox.
How does Botox work to get rid of wrinkles?
Botox injections deal with muscle activity. Once injected, the area of your choosing will experience reduced muscle activity. Frequent muscle movements are the sole reason for fine lines in the face that make everyone look older. Therefore, for the best results using Botox, your doctor may focus on areas such as under your eyes, frown lines around the mouth, the forehead, and other areas that experience elevated muscle movements.
For young people, making facial expressions has little influence on their overall looks. However, aging limits the production of collagen, which is a protein that helps in skin rejuvenation. Squinting, laughing, or doing any other facial expression while old means that your face will not recover to its original state as quickly, if ever. Botox injections help to limit muscle movements temporarily, reducing the effect on folding, creases, and fine lines forming on the face. Within a few weeks of the treatment, you will notice some changes in your skin.
What happens during a Botox Injection?
Botox injections are an in-office procedure that requires your presence. Your doctor will meet you and assess your skin. You will receive various questions, which you can complete by providing the beauty goals you have set. The doctor begins the procedure with anesthesia, which helps to numb the area. The numbing session allows the injections to be painless. Your doctor will inject the Botox with needles very precisely into the treatment area. The entire procedure is painless besides a small pinch while administering the numbing anesthesia. However, during the procedure, you may begin to feel some pinching. Tell your doctor if this occurs.
Botox is the most regarded treatment when it comes to facial rejuvenation. The treatment deals with issues such as creases, wrinkles, and folds. Reach Dr. Shawl via phone call or book online to start your journey to skin redefinition.
