No matter how hard we try, we can’t escape the eventual lines and wrinkles that come with age. While wearing sunscreen and regularly moisturizing the skin can certainly go a long way to keep you looking and feeling your best, wrinkles will still inevitably appear. Fortunately, here at CU Dermatology Boulder in Boulder, CO, Kimberly Bacharach, PA-C offers Botox—a simple, fast, and nonsurgical treatment option that can target and eliminate those early signs of aging.
What is Botox?
Botox is a series of thin injections that contain a purified form of botulinum toxin, an FDA-aproved and safe neurotoxin that causes muscle relaxation upon administration. By preventing certain muscles from contracting, fine lines, and wrinkles can be less visible or completely eliminated.
What types of wrinkles can Botox treat?
Botox is designed to treat dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles that are the result of muscle contractions. If you aren’t sure which wrinkles will respond to Botox, then take a minute to smile in the mirror. Any wrinkles or lines that appear when you smile or make other facial expressions can be smoothed away with Botox. This includes common fine lines and wrinkles including,
- Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
- Forehead wrinkles
- Nasolabial folds and wrinkles (wrinkles around the mouth and nose)
- Horizontal wrinkles and lines between the brows (“furrow lines”)
What should I expect when I get Botox treatment?
When you turn to our Boulder, CO, dermatologist for Botox treatment you can expect a safe, comfortable, and fast treatment. Botox only takes a couple of minutes to administer, making it easy for even our busiest patients to come in and get the cosmetic treatment they need without changing around their daily routines or work schedules. Since there is no downtime associated with Botox, you can immediately go back to work after treatment. We can even schedule your appointment during your lunch break to make it easy on you.
Will I see results right away?
It will take a couple of days for Botox to work its magic, so don’t be disappointed when you don’t leave the office with immediate results. You should see full results within 4-5 days, and have them last for up to 4 months. How long your results last will vary. Of course, patients can also get repeat treatments. If you want to add regular Botox treatment to your cosmetic routine, talk with us about how often you should come in for maintenance treatments.
