Do want to look younger but are not interested in painful surgery that has a lot of recovery time? Do you feel like smoothing away a few fine lines and wrinkles would do the trick? If so, botox is a treatment that you should consider! It does not take a long time and has lasting results that can take years off of your appearance. Here at Westover Hills Dermatology in San Antonio, TX, we can help you reach your skin goals!
How Often Can You Get Botox?
This will vary from person to person and it is always important to take the advice of professionals when it concerns how long you should wait in between treatment sessions. Most people can safely have this treatment about once every 14 to 16 weeks. However, there will be instances where people will not have to wait that long and vice versa. When you do notice your results fading, you can usually get maintenance treatments!
Areas You Can Treat
Below are the areas that you can have treatment but if you do have another area or areas where unwanted fine lines or wrinkles are a concern of yours, let our professionals know. They can take a closer look and see whether or not this injectable treatment could help in those areas as well.
Between the Brows
When we make facial expressions throughout the day, they are often shown between the brow area. This, over time, can cause wrinkles that start out mild but can become deeper and more severe as time goes on. This treatment will smooth away that line or lines and give you a much more youthful look.
The Outer Corners of the Mouth
The wrinkles and fine lines that form around the outer corners of the mouth are sometimes called “marionette lines” and these can be a concern for many people. This treatment can effectively smooth away these lines without any pain!
The Outer Corners of the Eyes
“Crow’s feet” or the fine lines and wrinkles that develop around the outer corners of the eyes can also grow to be deep and more severe quickly which is why this is such a popular treatment area. This injectable treatment will smooth these lines and wrinkles away and make you look more youthful.
Under the Eyes
Often the lines and wrinkles that form under the eyes are tiny but do tend to be more severe as we age. While fine lines and wrinkles are a normal part of the aging process, sometimes people believe they make them appear older than they feel. This treatment can help by taking care of those unwanted wrinkles under the eyes quickly.
Above the Lips
These lines also tend to be smaller and finer at first and this treatment can smooth them away as well.
Around the Nasal Region
The wrinkles and lines that form around the nasal region are sometimes called “folds” because, when severe, they do resemble folds. This treatment can take care of them and even restore lost volume!
This is probably the most popular treatment area as the forehead develops very noticeable wrinkles and fine lines as we age. This treatment can smooth them away, giving you back a much more vibrant and youthful look.
The Chin & Jaw Area
The skin around the chin and jaw can sometimes develop dimples as we age or sagging skin. This treatment can even help with this area contrary to what many might believe. This too can take years off of one’s look.
Once again, if you do have other areas where you have unwanted fine lines and wrinkles, please tell our experts. They can have a look and let you know if this treatment can be helpful there as well.
