How Botox Can Improve the Appearance of Your Skin

Tired of looking tired? Want to do something about those lines in your face?

If you live in the Yardley, PA area and you’re seeking options for smoothing facial wrinkles, a qualified dermatologist, such as botoxRosenman and Leventhal, PC, can help you make the right decision for you.

One non-surgical option many people choose is Botox, or more specifically, injections of Botulinum toxin.

Botox refers to a group of medications that use various forms of botulinum toxin, a microbe associated with a certain type of food poisoning. When injected, Botox temporarily paralyzes muscle activity by blocking certain chemical signals from nerves which cause muscles to contract. The most common use of Botox injections is to relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles.

Botox has been in use since the 1980s. When administered under the experienced care and guidance of a qualified medical doctor, Botox can be a safe and effective option for erasing facial age lines and wrinkles. Botox can be used for a number of cosmetic issues, most notably smoothing out lines in the forehead made by furrowing the brow, frown lines, and crow’s feet, which are lines around the corners of the eyes. A study recently published in the journal JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery found that Botox may improve skin pliability and elasticity for up to four months.

Botox can be an effective, non-surgical cosmetic option for removing facial lines and wrinkles. However, Botox can be dangerous if not administered properly. While “Botox parties” – events hosted by non-medical professionals such as cosmetologists – have become popular, Botox injections are safest and most effective when administered by a qualified, experienced medical professional.
