Friends ask why you're frowning. Is something wrong? No, you feel fine, but wrinkles between your eyebrows have deepened, creating an older, and grumpier, look. Would you like to say goodbye to facial lines and wrinkles? You can with BOTOX Cosmetic from South County Dermatology. Your dermatologists, Dr. Robert Dyer and Dr. Vincent Criscione, offer BOTOX in East Greenwich, Narragansett, Westerly, and Barrington, RI, helping patients achieve smoother, younger looks.
What is BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a very popular aesthetic facial treatment. In fact, marketing research from retail experts at Mintel says that at least one million women try BOTOX for the first time each and every year.
Made from purified botulism toxin, this FDA-approved medication limits how much facial muscles move. Your dermatologist in East Greenwich, Narragansett, Westerly, and Barrington injects BOTOX with a super-fine needle during a brief in-office procedure. He applies a numbing cream to selected areas of the face, and most patients notice only a mild stinging sensation.
Afterwards, there may be some redness, but this quickly resolves. Patients return to their normal activities right away.
As injections take effect over the subsequent two to four days, the face looks more relaxed and smoother. Dynamic wrinkling all but disappears.
What is dynamic wrinkling? It happens when your facial muscles contract to express happiness, worry, surprise or other emotions. Usually, these lines appear:
- Across the forehead
- At the corner's of the eyes (crow's feet)
- Between the nose and mouth
- Between the eyebrows
Who qualifies for BOTOX?
Many adults--both men and women--can enjoy the aesthetic benefits of BOTOX Cosmetic. The best therapeutic age range is between 25 and 65 when lines are not yet deeply set, and skin has elasticity due to collagen production.
Also, patients should have realistic expectations for their appearance. BOTOX will not reduce signs of aging by twenty years, but rather give you a refreshed, relaxed, smooth facial appearance. In other words, after you get BOTOX treatments, you'll look like you only look better.
Women who are pregnant or lactating should postpone BOTOX treatments, and as with any elective skin procedure, be sure to check with your primary care physician. Dr. Dyer and Dr. Criscione carefully evaluate their patients' skin, medical and medication history before recommending BOTOX.
