FDA-Approved For Temporary Wrinkle Reduction
Results can last 3 to 4 months depending on: the location of the injection, the amount of Botox® injected, your age, the elasticity of your skin, and wrinkle depth. Botox® Cosmetic works to relax and weaken muscles over time. As a result, the more often you receive Botox®, the fewer treatments you’ll need to achieve the same effect. Patients have reported results lasting up to six months with regular treatments.
Preventing New Wrinkles
Keeping your skin healthy can be beneficial in preventing new wrinkles. A few steps you can take are:
- Wear sunscreen
- Avoid smoking
- Stay hydrated
- Use moisturizers
- Eat a healthy diet
- Use gentle skin cleansers
Dr. Lawton may advise you on additional ways to protect your skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox® Cosmetic?
Men and women over the age of 21 seeking to reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles are ideal candidates. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding or have certain neuromuscular conditions should avoid muscle relaxing injections.
When Should I Get Touch-Ups?
Receiving Botox® Cosmetic treatments too soon can produce “overdone” results. To determine how frequently you can safely receive injections, schedule a consultation with Dr. Tenley K. Lawton. As an experienced surgeon, she can work with you to customize the best treatment plan for natural-looking results.
