Botox TreatmentBotox is an injection therapy that can make the skin look smoother and tighter, long after deep wrinkling and lines have set in. It has continued to grow in popularity since dermatologists first started using the proprietary compound for cosmetics in the early 2000s. Find out if you are a good candidate for this cosmetic procedure, which is offered by Kimberly Bacharach, PA-C at CU Dermatology in Boulder, CO.

What Is BOTOX?
Botox, short for botulinum A toxin, is a cosmetic treatment that clears up stubborn wrinkles on your forehead, lines around your mouth, and crow’s feet that form around the eyes, shaving years off your appearance. A series of injections of a neurotoxic protein are applied to areas of the face that have cosmetic flaws. The protein stops the muscles that form wrinkles and lines from moving. The muscles freeze, causing the skin to soften and wrinkles to release.

Are You a Good Candidate?
Botox works best if your skin is in generally good condition, and still has moderate elasticity. If you’re not happy with how your skin is aging, or have damage caused by the sun, consult with CU Dermatology to find out more about this option. In some cases, it can be combined with other treatments, like dermal fillers or photofacial rejuvenation, to achieve even more optimal results.

BOTOX Benefits
Botox is also called botulinum rejuvenation because of the way it revitalizes and refreshes the texture and appearance of the skin. One of the most notable benefits of Botox is the simplicity of the procedure. The injections take about five minutes of your time, and you can go back to your normal day. It takes only a few days to begin to see results, and they last for 3-4 months. Schedule visits every quarter for a checkup and maintenance.
