How is Botox used to turn back the hands of time?

Botox is an injectable treatment that has been around for many, many years. It continues to be the most requested and popular service at Magnolia Dermatology, thanks to its positive and safe track record of use. Dr. Neelam Patel and her team in Clarksville, TN, educate patients on the benefits of this anti-wrinkle injection and how it turns back the hands of time!

How does Botox work?

Botox works by reducing muscle contractions where it is injected. Over about one week, the areas surrounding these muscles are smoothed out, resulting in a more youthful look. While the results are not permanent, they will last several months before reinjection is required to slow the overall aging process on the facial skin. Botox is formulated with botulinum toxin type A, a neuromodulator that works wonders in many different applications. In fact, Botox can be used for specific medical issues, including hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), overactive bladder, and even chronic headaches and migraines. Its many applications and uses make it a reliable and effective solution for multiple concerns, whether medical or cosmetic.

Where can Botox injections improve the face?

Specific areas of the face will benefit from Botox anti-wrinkle injections. These are areas where dynamic wrinkles occur–wrinkles that develop from muscle contractions of the face. This makes Botox the perfect solution for crow’s feet, forehead folds, and glabellar lines on the upper portion of the face. Botox is injected directly into the muscles of the face that contribute to the formation of these wrinkles and lines to smooth them out and reduce their depth. With continued treatments, you can slow the overall process of aging skin and delay the need for more invasive surgical treatments such as facelifts and browlifts.
