Plastic surgery procedures such as facelifts can be dramatic, expensive, and carry several risks, just as any surgical procedure can. While it may be a great option for patients who are in their later years and want to turn back the hands of time against severe signs of aging, it’s not for everyone. Patients in their 30’s or 40’s who want to maintain their youth may instead want to ask Dr. Cynthia Cote of MD Cote about the benefits of cosmetic injectables such as Botox.
What is Botox?
Botox has become a household name over the years, as more and more people become familiar with it. Botox is a specific brand of neuromodulator that patients can use to reduce dynamic wrinkles and folds on the face. These are lines and wrinkles that develop in specific areas due to the contraction of facial muscles. Botox is a medication that is injected into the muscle to relax it, in turn reducing the depth and overall appearance of the dynamic wrinkle being treated. The results of Botox can last several months before the medication wears off and need to be reinjected.
Who is a good candidate for Botox injections?
Botox is best for adult men and women dealing with mild to moderate signs of aging caused by muscle tension. During an initial consultation appointment and evaluation with Dr. Cynthia Cote, patients can find out if they are a good fit for Botox. Botox is best used to treat the wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. Other fine lines and wrinkles might be treated with other injectables such as hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, also available at our practice. Botox and dermal fillers can be combined for optimum results.
