If you’ve tried over-the-counter masks, lotions, serums, and creams and found that they’ve done nothing for the fine lines and wrinkles between your brows, on your forehead, and in your crows feet areas, Botox may be the solution you’ve been longing for. Let’s dive deeper into how Botox(R) works and why it’s important to have your treatment with our board-certified dermatologists.
How Botox Works
Our facial muscles are designed to control the movement of our skin. When they contract, our skin folds, creating crevices and creases over time. That’s where Botox comes in. When injected into the skin, Botox stops the muscles from moving by temporarily blocking the nerve impulses that tell the muscles to contract. After a Botox treatment, the muscles and skin remain relaxed, leading to a smooth, more youthful appearance.
Each treatment lasts between three to six months, or sometimes longer with continued use. Although the FDA approved cosmetic uses of Botox include treatment of the frown (glabellar) lines, crows and forehead lines, it can also soften upper lip lines, the dimpled chin, vertical bands in the neck, and the “bunny lines” on the bridge of the nose.
Why Choose our Board-Certified Dermatologists
While any medical professional including physicians of any specialty, non-MD nurses and dentists can legally administer Botox, it is in your best interest to go to a board-certified dermatologist for your injection. A board-certified dermatologist has extensive education and experience focused on the skin, is trained from residency onward in cosmetic injectables, and is immersed in continuing medical education regarding Botox and other neuromodulators.
If you’re seeking a natural appearance, our dermatologists have the keen eye for detail and expertise necessary to ensure your Botox treatments don’t make you look like overdone. Our physicians are in the Top 500 Allergan injectors in the nation, and have been for years, and are in the Boston Magazine Top Docs. We have injected thousands of vials of Botox, as well as other neuromodulator brands such as Dysport(R) and Xeomin(R).
