No matter what you do, sometimes there’s no way to prevent the signs of aging from marching all over your face. But, that doesn’t mean you have to live with it.
Dr. Stephanie Herrera wants the men and women in Lake Jackson, Texas, to look as good on the outside as they feel within. When it comes to eliminating frown lines and crow’s feet at her clinic, Lake Jackson Medical Spa, Dr. Herrera knows there’s nothing like Botox®.
The proven power of Botox
Botox received FDA approval in 2002 and quickly became the top-selling cosmetic treatment of its kind. This therapy provides results, because it uses tiny amounts of the neurotoxin botulinum to reduce the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles.
When you have Botox injections, Dr. Herrera delivers small amounts of medication into specific facial muscles to help them relax. As the neurotoxin enters the area, it temporarily disrupts communication between your muscles and nerves. This leads to a smoother and more relaxed appearance.
Botox can effectively treat a wide range of facial imperfections, including:
- Lip lines
- Frown and smile lines
- Nasal bridge wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
Over the last 15 years, Botox has gone on to sell 13 million vials in the United States alone and is used in 98 countries.
Botox offers results that look natural
Even though Botox works by paralyzing your muscles, in experienced hands, you’re left with a relaxed appearance — not one that’s frozen in place. That’s because Dr. Herrera injects precise amounts of the medication in the treatment area to reduce muscle activity, not completely eliminate it. This approach guarantees a more natural appearance where your facial expressions remain the same, but you look happier, more rested, and have fewer noticeable lines and wrinkles.
When it comes to frown lines and crow’s feet, Dr. Herrera focuses on the muscles around your eyes and forehead. By injecting Botox into these areas, you can expect significant improvement in even moderate to severe frown lines with results that last 3-6 months.
Say goodbye to wrinkles fast with Botox
The proven and natural looking results you get with Botox treatment aren’t the only things to love about this wrinkle fighting treatment. A session takes less than 10 minutes and doesn’t require any downtime. That means you can pop in over your lunch break, head back to work, and no one will be the wiser.
During your appointment, Dr. Herrera uses a tiny needle to administer your injections. These are usually relatively painless, but she can apply a topical anesthetic to increase your comfort if needed. The number of doses she injects will depend on the treatment site and the severity of your wrinkles.
After having Botox, you may begin seeing changes within a day or two, but maximum results take about 7-10 days. To help maintain your youthful appearance, Dr. Herrera usually recommends a follow-up visit four months later to see if you need additional treatment.
