PASADENA, CA, May 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- For years doctors have been using Botox to successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases and Southeast Dermatology continues to provide this service for their patients. Available in Houston and Pasadena, Botox is used to eliminate frown lines, crow's feet, and other wrinkles to give people a more youthful appearance. While wrinkles are an unfortunate side effect of aging, Botox injections are utilized at Southeast Dermatology to take years off a person's appearance by smoothing out various wrinkles.
"Wrinkles are a common side effect of aging that most people would like to eliminate. With Botox we are able to help our patients smooth their skin to reveal a more youthful appearance. We invite each of our patients to visit our office to learn more about Botox and to find out if this is an appropriate treatment option," said Dr. Mary Garman, a dermatologist in Pasadena.
Unlike soft tissue fillers such as Juvederm that add volume to skin depressions, Botox blocks the release of a chemical called acetylcholine which triggers the muscle contractions that create wrinkles. With Botox, it essentially paralyzes the muscles and stops them from contracting. Results are typically visible one week after treatment and remain visible for a minimum of three months.
"Anyone in generally good health who has fairly shallow fine lines and wrinkles may be a good candidate for Botox treatments," stated this Pasadena dermatologist. "Everyone has unique expressions, as we all move our facial muscles in a repetitive way. Over time these repetitive movements cause wrinkles and fine lines, but Botox works to eliminate these appearances of aging."
Botox works to relax the contraction of muscles by blocking nerve impulses. The result is muscles that can no longer contract, relaxing and softening wrinkles. It will typically take two to four days to see cosmetic improvement with results that can last anywhere from four to six months. Most patients require retreatment to remove wrinkles and lines as they begin to reappear, but after each injection the wrinkles return as less severe as the muscles are trained to relax.
