Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Beam, offers Botox® treatments for patients looking to eliminate wrinkles and achieve a more youthful look in Glastonbury, New Britain, Hartford, New Haven and surrounding areas of Connecticut.
As we age, it is common for our natural looks to be altered by the development of laugh lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles. However, you don’t have to simply wear the effects of age forever just because that’s what life dealt you. With Botox®, you can regain a youthful appearance by eliminating signs of aging in your face for a smoother, fresher new you that still looks natural.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a quick, convenient, and effective non-surgical remedy for stress and age-related facial lines and wrinkles. Designed to halt muscle actions in the face that cause these lines, Botox® is FDA-approved and entirely safe for cosmetic use. Its effects are clinically proven to last for up to six months, and because the results are temporary, Botox® injections are an attractive option for those who want to explore a cosmetic procedure without making the permanent commitment required by facial cosmetic surgery.
How Does Botox® Work?
Botox® injections take no more than an hour or so to complete, making the procedure one of the most convenient and popular cosmetic treatments available. Botox® relaxes and immobilizes the muscles that cause an unwanted aged look, smoothing away wrinkles and fine lines to make the patient appear years younger. The specific effects are subtle, yet overall, they have a profound impact on a person’s aesthetic, transforming a tired, aged appearance into a fresh face that looks youthful and more appealing.
What is the Procedure for Botox®?
Botox® injections will be made with a fine needle into the muscles on the face that have been overactive and caused the development of wrinkles and lines. Most Botox® patients report that the treatment is painless. Some patients experience mild short-term side effects, such as numbness, tingling, slight swelling, or redness, but these effects almost always fade quickly, leaving smoother, more youthful skin. The results will last for around four to six months, and the procedure can then be repeated as needed in order to maintain a vibrant appearance for the long-term. The ease of injections and many other advantages of Botox® make it among the most popular treatments at our Hartford-area Medical Spa.
Who is a Good Candidate for Botox®?
Most reasonably healthy men and women who have noticed age-related changes in their face are a good candidate for Botox®. It is important to understand the procedure and maintain realistic expectations at all times. Botox® is not able to treat every single fine line on the face, but rather, targets major areas where overactive muscles have caused issues such as forehead wrinkles or crow’s feet. Through restricting the movement of these muscle groups, Botox® can stop the formation of new lines and reduce the appearance of older lines, resulting in smoother skin on the face and a brighter overall look.
