There is never a wrong time to take control of your aging skin, though you may be hesitant if you think that you have to get surgery to do so. Surgical solutions like a facelift may be an effective way to tighten loose skin around your face, but at Coastal Plastic Surgeons we understand that incisions and longer recovery periods are not right for everyone. That’s why we often recommend BOTOX® as an alternative treatment.
Although it’s not the best option for creating that Halloween ghoulish glare, BOTOX® will reduce the amount of wrinkles lining your face and make your skin smoother. If you are looking for a nonsurgical and minimally invasive facial rejuvenation technique, then BOTOX® may be right for you. After all, it does provide scary-good results!
When Is BOTOX® the Right Choice?
Surgery is a great way to improve the elasticity and texture of your skin, but it is a serious commitment and investment, both financially and personally. It’s best to consult with Dr. Batra about whether a facelift is right for you, since the procedure could produce results that are more dramatic than what you’re looking for.
BOTOX® is flexible and gives you and Dr. Batra complete control over the amount of enhancement you desire. You can adjust the amount of units placed into your skin, inject various muscles at a time and even discontinue treatment altogether if you decide that you would rather try a different treatment method.
Unlike surgery, which is permanent, BOTOX® will simply wear off if you stop receiving injections, and your face will return to its original contour. You will appreciate the impermanence of injectable treatment because it puts you in the driver’s seat of your cosmetic goals.
You will also find that BOTOX® creates subtle enhancements when compared to surgical options. If you don’t want to look as if you’ve had work done, then injectable treatment is likely the best choice for facial rejuvenation.
BOTOX® injections specifically target the muscles in the skin that are responsible for creating lines and wrinkles and won’t affect your entire face. You can also combine BOTOX® with dermal filler injections, which add volume to the skin and provide a long-lasting youthful look.
BOTOX® Is So Easy It’s Frightening!
Nowadays, people want results fast, and that’s what BOTOX® gives you when you come in for your appointment. When you’re on a time-crunch and can’t sit through longer recovery periods, BOTOX® can produce results in a matter of days as opposed to weeks with surgery. It’s especially ideal if you plan on frequenting a few upcoming Halloween parties this month.
Side effects are minimal and only include slight swelling at the injection site, which typically diminishes after a few hours. You can return to your daily routine immediately after your treatment.
Before you put on the costume makeup or Halloween mask, touch up those wrinkles and folds with BOTOX® injections. You may not end up looking scary, but you’ll be pleased with the natural results that you receive.
