The years take a toll on your skin. Repeated facial expressions — from squinting to raising your eyebrows — can crease your skin, leaving permanent lines and wrinkles over time. Everyone faces these signs of aging, but not everyone is willing to accept them.
That’s where BOTOX® comes in. Over 7 million BOTOX procedures are performed each year in the United States. It’s a popular cosmetic injectable that’s FDA-approved to temporarily reduce the appearance of moderate to severe expression lines across your face.
Scott Bateman, MD, and our team at Sheridan Ear, Nose & Throat are proud to offer our patients the best in facial rejuvenation, including BOTOX injections. To learn more about the benefits of BOTOX, book a consultation with us today.
Millions of people trust BOTOX
BOTOX is the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic treatment today. It’s the first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily reduce the look of many common lines and wrinkles, including:
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
Your skin gets more delicate with age, and the collagen that gives it volume and bounce when you’re young starts to decrease. Facial expressions like frowning and squinting crease skin, and those creases stick around as you get older.
Crow’s feet around your eyes and frown lines between your eyebrows are all too common. These wrinkles are called dynamic wrinkles, and they don’t respond well to dermal fillers. BOTOX is the leading treatment option for these deep-set, stubborn lines.
BOTOX contains onabotulinumtoxinA, a purified neurotoxin that temporarily relaxes the muscles below the surface of your skin that are responsible for common facial expressions. When your muscles relax, your skin looks smoother and younger.
This celebrated cosmetic product has been treating frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet since the 1980s, and it only continues to grow in popularity. Because of its history as a cosmetic treatment, you can be confident in the results you can achieve.
How BOTOX can work for you
Dr. Bateman can help you decide if BOTOX is right for you. There’s no right age to begin BOTOX treatment. It can treat moderate to severe lines and wrinkles you already have, but more and more men and women in their 20s and 30s are seeking BOTOX as a preventive measure.
BOTOX treatments are quick — most appointments take just 10 minutes. Dr. Bateman makes 3-5 small injections in your treatment area, and you go on your way. There’s no downtime following treatment, and any mild side effects should fade within a few days.
Results generally develop in the 24-48 hours following your BOTOX treatment. You begin to notice your wrinkles are minimized, but you still look like your natural, beautiful self. Your smoother, younger-looking skin can last for up to four months.
Cosmetic treatment with BOTOX delivers reliable, natural results. With BOTOX at Sheridan Ear, Nose & Throat, you’ll never look overdone. You can expect to look like you, but with fewer noticeable lines and wrinkles around your eyes and between your eyebrows.
If you’re noticing lines and wrinkles forming on your forehead and around your eyes, trust Dr. Bateman to help you achieve smoother-looking skin. Request your facial rejuvenation consultation online or call our office to book today.
