When the outward signs of aging change the appearance of your face, it may be time to consider BOTOX® injections. At Nassau Bay Dermatology in Webster, Texas, Jeanne Paz, MD, is a skilled dermatologist with more than 27 years of experience, offering an array of cosmetic services, including BOTOX injections, to help you look your best at every age. You should only get BOTOX from a board-certified physician, and as a dermatologist, Dr. Paz has the skill and knowledge to make you look natural, not overdone. Call for an appointment or book online.
BOTOX relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles to form as a result of your repeated facial expressions, such as frowning, squinting, or raising your eyebrows. BOTOX is made from a pure strain of botulinum toxin that, when Dr. Jeanne Paz injects into your facial muscles, it temporarily and gently paralyzes them. Within the first 24-48 hours after you receive BOTOX injections, your skin smoothes out, and fine lines and wrinkles become noticeably less visible.
Even though BOTOX injections relax your facial muscles, you’re still able to make natural expressions. Based on your individual needs, Dr. Paz knows exactly how much BOTOX to inject to give you the younger-looking results you desire without making you look “frozen.”
Before you receive BOTOX injections, you speak with Dr. Paz about your areas of concern and she recommends an ideal treatment solution. BOTOX is designed to smooth forehead lines and the crow’s feet at the outer corners of your eyes. It also reduces the appearance of frown lines between your eyebrows.
For frown lines, you receive up to five injections; forehead lines usually respond well this amount, and crow’s feet typically receive three injections around the side of each eye. Dr. Paz tailors your treatment to the location and depth of the wrinkles you want to make disappear.
Most adults report that BOTOX injections just feel like a little pinch from the needle, but are otherwise easily tolerated. If you’re concerned about pain, talk to Dr. Paz before your appointment so she can apply a numbing cream at your request.
Treatment takes just a few minutes and there’s no downtime afterward. You can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave her office, and resume your usual activities. You’ll begin to see positive results in the first day or two, and you can enjoy the benefits of fewer visible lines and wrinkles around your eyes and forehead for up to four months.
If you’re tired of seeing lines staring back at you from the mirror each day, but you don’t want to undergo any kind of invasive procedure, BOTOX injections can help you look like yourself, only younger.
