Reducing wrinkles and folds with simple Botox injections
- Posted on: Apr 30 2020
Just because you have more candles on your birthday cake each year doesn’t mean that you have to succumb to the natural signs of aging. In fact, many men and women who want to combat the changes in their skin, specifically on the face, might believe plastic surgery is the only way to achieve a more youthful appearance. However, surgery isn’t always the answer! If you want to consider a non-invasive option, Dr. Daniel S. Tresley of Northbrook, IL encourages you to call his office to discuss Botox injections.
What is Botox?
Botox is a common neurotoxin that has been used for decades in many areas of medicine. This injectable uses botulinum toxin type A injected into the muscles of the face to reduce tension and smooth dynamic wrinkles. Botox is known for turning back the hands of time without the need for surgery, making it an extremely popular choice among younger men and women showing the signs of aging.
What are Botox injections used to treat?
Most patients find that Botox effectively addresses muscle-related creases on the face, including forehead folds, crow’s feet, and the glabellar lines that develop between the eyebrows. With routine injections, patients can slow the overall aging process and maintain a youthful appearance longer.
Is Botox right for me?
To determine if you are a good fit for Botox injections, our team will suggest a consultation appointment with Dr. Daniel S. Tresley. During an initial evaluation, our doctor will assess your needs and discuss your medical history and health. Most adult patients with mild to moderate wrinkles and folds may find that Botox is a wonderful solution for their unique needs and desired results.
What can I expect from my appointment?
Our team uses a topical anesthetic on the surface of the skin to ensure injections are comfortable. Most patients will have their injections completed in just a few minutes and can return to their daily activities without interruption. Some mild side effects that may occur a day or two after injections includes swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection site. These are minor and often subside quickly.
