Botox is one of the most popular skin care treatments offered at dermatologist offices across the country. It’s estimated that over 14
million minimally invasive cosmetic procedures are performed each year, with Botox topping the list. It is a treatment offered at Glendale Dermatology in Glendale and Queens Borough, NY, that may help you revive your youth and feel better about the appearance of your skin.
Common Skin Concerns
Common skin concerns that dermatologists treat include wrinkles and lines that appear irreversible. These lines develop after years of making expressions that activate tiny muscles in your face (laughing, frowning, crying), and also from exposure to the sun. Now many skin doctors offer a treatment called Botox that can rejuvenate the appearance and feel of the face.
Reviving Your Youth with Botox
Botox is an injectable formula made of a natural material (botulinum toxin) that relaxes or “freezes” the muscles that cause deep lines and wrinkles in your skin. Once injected at specific areas, the muscles no longer have the impulse to contract or move. Many patients find that they are able to revive their youthful appearance by 10 years or more after just one or two treatments.
Your Botox Visit
Going to your Glendale and Queens Borough dermatologist for a Botox treatment is quick and simple. You can probably get it done on your lunch hour and still have time to do a little light shopping before going back to work. A small needle is carefully injected into your areas of concern, whether it is crow’s feet around the eyes or laugh lines in the forehead. Anesthesia isn’t necessary during the appointment and you can return to most normal activities right afterward. It will likely take a couple of days to see the effects and the results can last for up to six months.
