Turn Back the Clock on Aging
At EpiCentre Skin Care & Laser Center, we are excited to offer Dallas, TX residents Botox® and other skin tightening solutions that double as skincare. Botox® is one of the most popular ways to turn back the clock on aging, by erasing fine lines and facial wrinkles in both men and women. In fact, more than six million Botox® treatments are administered each year, making it one of the most successful methods available to reduce facial wrinkles.
If you choose Botox® to feel more confident in your own skin, then we want you to be full of confidence when choosing a treatment with our medspa. After all, achieving the look you wish should be an exciting treatment process, not a nerve-wracking one. The EpiCentre Skin Care & Laser Center team is here to dispel some common concerns about Botox® and help you make an educated decision. Here’s our guide to the most common questions we receive about Botox®, along with some vital information about side effects and treatments that you should know about.
What is Botox®?
Botox® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved prescription medicine that freezes the muscles below the skin, stopping targeted muscles from sagging into wrinkles. Botox® injections aren’t a new skincare procedure and are talked about frequently as a solution for getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox® works using tiny facial injections with a fine needle in the targeted muscle area. The protein then blocks signals between the nerve endings and muscle, allowing the muscle to relax and smooth the fine lines of the skin.
How long does Botox® last?
Botox® is a temporary treatment. Results appear within 10 to 14 days from your initial visit and last for about three to four months.
Why is this good news? It means that you can customize Botox® injections every few months to achieve your ideal look. After a few months, you can decide if you’d like to continue with a maintenance procedure, change the areas you’d like to treat or stop treatment altogether. Has a new wrinkle appeared? We’ll target that area next time! We can also tone down the effect in specific areas, should you decide to lessen the amount of Botox® used. It’s a completely personalized treatment with unique results, so you can reverse your wrinkles and feel more confident with each new day.
What is Botox® used for?
Botox® isn’t a new cosmetic procedure, but many of our patients aren’t sure what the treatment involves, or what it’s used for. Because Botox® temporarily relaxes the muscles below the skin, it is most effective at targeting the muscles involved with creating and deepening frown lines between the eyebrows, as well as moderate to severe crow’s feet. Additionally, more and more patients come to our skincare center to get Botox® in their lips and forehead. This works to create extra volume and a smoother, more youthful look.
Who can use Botox®?
Botox® isn’t just for older men and women. Some patients begin using Botox® as early as their mid-20s in order to make minor adjustments that enhance their appearance. Patients in their 30s choosing to start Botox® usually do so to stop small wrinkles from deepening and retrain muscles from sinking further into those lines and creases. Starting early can help slow wrinkles from becoming pronounced, instead of just waiting until your 40s or 50s to try to minimize those stubborn fine lines.
What should I expect during a Botox® treatment?
There’s no reason to feel intimidated by Botox® injections. Botox® is widely used by physicians, nurses, and aestheticians throughout the country to control or reduce dynamic facial wrinkles, and the team at our Dallas, TX skincare center is experienced in achieving natural, youthful results. Administration of Botox® is a relatively pain-free procedure and only takes a few minutes. To prepare your skin for an injection, we may apply a cold pack for a temporary, mild numbing effect. Then, during the injection, you will feel a pinching sensation, but it swiftly passes. After the Botox® injection is complete, recovery time is minimal, so that you can continue with your daily activities unimpeded.
Why choose EpiCentre Skin Care & Laser Center for a Botox® treatment?
Some of our patients are worried that the results of Botox® will look unnatural or be too severe. Because our med spa team is specially trained to administer Botox® and has experience working with a multitude of face shapes, we’ll help you receive superior skincare results with a natural aesthetic!
