Rejuvenate Your Appearance with BOTOX

Reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles may be easier than you think. A simple BOTOX® procedure can help to smooth out those annoying dynamic wrinkles without the need for surgery, abrasive skin resurfacing or chemical peels.

BOTOX® is unique in that it doesn’t treat the skin directly, but instead acts as a nerve signal inhibitor. When the facial muscles stay relaxed, the skin isn’t pulled or compressed as much, and this virtually eliminates the appearance of crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles. During a consultation at Plateroti Dermatology, we will show you exactly how BOTOX® can rejuvenate your appearance and give you back your self-confidence.

During the Initial Consultation
Many of our clients had no idea how BOTOX® truly worked until they consulted with us. We give the simple, straight-forward answers to questions about how this injectable fluid acts upon the nerves that control the upper-level facial muscles. Before deciding on any type of skin rejuvenation procedure, we strongly suggest that you learn how this treatment can help smooth out the facial skin without surgery or skin layer removal.

We will examine your face closely and ask you to make some smiling, frowning or other facial expressions. This lets us see where the problem wrinkles exist and where the ideal injection sites are located.

A Simple Injection Procedure
BOTOX® is derived from a purified protein solution. This solution affects the nerves that control facial muscle contraction. During this procedure, we skillfully inject the BOTOX® fluid into the preselected areas.

It takes some time for the full effects to take hold. Once treated, the individual can still smile and frown, but the skin remains smooth, and the tiny smile lines and crow’s feet that were previously visible around the corners of the mouth and near the eyes are no long visible.

BOTOX® works for a long time. Most of our clients report satisfactory results for around four to six months. The fluid is eventually flushed from the body, and a follow-up treatment will be necessary. In the meantime, the muscles of the face are being trained to stay relaxed, so future treatments require less and less of the BOTOX® fluid.

Enhancing Your Facial Features
To put it simply, a simple BOTOX® treatment at Plateroti Dermatology can give you a smoother, more youthful appearance. Contact us today to schedule a consultation at our office in Templeton.
