Plastic surgery is a great way for patients to address aging skin. These treatments can delay a patient’s need for invasive surgeries such as facelifts and provide a temporary way to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Some wrinkles, such as those that develop from muscle contractions (dynamic wrinkles), can be addressed with the use of an injectable known as Botox.
What is Botox?
Men with dynamic wrinkles and folds causing forehead lines, glabellar lines, and even crow’s feet can be addressed with Botox injections. Botox is a medication that uses botulinum toxin type A to inhibit muscle contractions where it is injected. In doing this, it smooths wrinkles and folds that have been caused from years of smiling or furrowing the brow. This makes it a highly desirable option for patients with imperfections on the upper third of their face that can contribute to an aged or angry appearance. Men will find that with regular Botox injections, they can turn back the hands of time, restoring a youthful, friendly, and relaxed look.
Is Botox safe?
Botox has been used for decades in various areas of medicine, and it has been used in the past for patients with chronic migraines, overactive bladder, and even the treatment of excessive sweating. It is FDA-approved for cosmetic use in the face to combat the dynamic wrinkles that can form with time.
What about other injectables?
At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, we are excited to use Botox along with other injectables such as dermal fillers and collagen stimulators. In some instances, we may combine a variety of injectables to get the most dramatic results for an individual. These “liquid facelifts” can last several months and reduce one’s desire to have invasive plastic surgery performed.
