Melanie and David Hecker of Hecker Dermatology Group, for Botox injections. Read on to learn more!
How does Botox work?
Many of the lines and wrinkles you see are the result of dynamic expressions that occur every time you move your face. When you're younger, you may notice a temporary crease between your eyes when you frown, or lines around your eyes when you laugh. Although these lines initially disappear the moment you stop frowning or smiling, they may become permanent as you grow older.
Botox injections minimize lines by preventing your muscles from contracting when you make dynamic expressions. When the muscles relax, your skin begins to smooth out, making these lines and wrinkles much less prominent.
Is Botox the right choice for me?
Botox is an excellent option if you're unhappy with your lines and wrinkles, are in good health, and are between the ages of 18 and 65; however, you won't be able to receive the injections if you are pregnant, nursing, or have multiple sclerosis or another neuromuscular disease. Botox results are temporary and usually last between 4-6 months, depending on the area being treated.
Why types of lines and wrinkles does Botox treat?
It's amazing the effect one or two little lines can have on your appearance. When vertical lines appear between your eyes, you may look tired, angry or sad. Botox smooths the lines, rejuvenating your appearance.
Have the crow's feet at the corners of your eyes become much more noticeable lately? Botox offers a simple way to minimize these lines that appear when you laugh or smile.
Do you wish you could pull your hair back or wear forehead-baring hairstyles but feel self-conscious about the horizontal lines on your forehead? After your Pompano Beach skin doctor injects Botox into your facial muscles, your forehead furrows will be much less noticeable. The injections can also improve the appearance of lines around your mouth and decrease the dimples in your chin.
