Does it feel like you are in a constant race against the hands of time? Are you frustrated with the presence of fine lines and wrinkles? Have you considered pursuing a procedure to rejuvenate your appearance, but a surgical procedure does not feel like the best fit for you and your lifestyle? BOTOX is an injectable treatment option that creates a more relaxed appearance by altering the relationship between nerve signals and muscles. Explore treatment options with Dr. Moran of Dr. Renee Moran Medical Aesthetics in the Boston area.
What Is BOTOX?
BOTOX® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment option. When administered, this non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment can be used to reduce the appearance of:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines
- Marionette lines
- Smile lines
BOTOX is a neuromodulator, and it prevents nerve signals from reaching muscles from contracting. This prevents the creation or worsening of fine lines and wrinkles. This is why BOTOX is effective for dynamic lines and wrinkles, which are lines and wrinkles formed as a result of natural facial movements and expressions.
What Could I Expect from a Treatment Session?
BOTOX is an injectable treatment option administered by Dr. Moran in the Boston area. Treatment sessions are relatively short and simple, but will vary based on the area and severity of the concern treated. There is little to no pain associated with the treatment experience, but you may feel a slight pinching in the injection site.
While there is no set downtime associated with a treatment session, you may experience some minor bruising or swelling. Results from BOTOX vary for each person and condition treated. Most people begin to enjoy the benefits shortly after treatment, and results may last for up to six months. A series of treatments may help you achieve and maintain the best results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
BOTOX is safe and effective for most healthy adults who are unhappy with the presence of fine lines and wrinkles. However, it is important to keep in mind it is only effective for dynamic lines and wrinkles, so it is not a good choice for pesky signs of aging caused by other lifestyle factors.
Dr. Moran can help you determine if this injectable treatment option is a good fit for you and your goals. It is important to have realistic goals and expectations for treatment. While results may help create a smoother appearance, they are typically more subtle than those created with surgical procedures.
