Austin Botox Dermatology Treatment
Botox is a treatment intended to alleviate the appearance of facial wrinkles and creases by reducing muscle activity, administered through a series of injections. Botox injection is the country’s most common cosmetic operation. Each year, nearly 5 million procedures are administered in America (data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons).
Botox procedures are available at our Austin location, easily reachable from Steiner Ranch, Lakeway, Round Rock, and Westlake. Dr. Roopal Bhatt is experienced and qualified, and the treatment is safe. It’s also very fast, and no recovery time is required, so the proven technique can be undertaken over the course of a lunch break.
The Advantage of Botox Treatment by a Board-Certified Dermatologist
Dr. Bhatt is a board-certified dermatologist; your treatment will be solely administered by Dr. Bhatt at Four Points Dermatology.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is synthesized from the protein occurring in the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. The quantity of this protein found in one injection of Botox is just enough to slow the movement of the facial muscles which cause your lines and wrinkles. The procedure is not a permanent one, but the results are lasting and effective.
There are things one should learn about Botox before seeking the treatment to cut down on wrinkles. One of the most important things is that Botox does not alleviate wrinkles or lines that do are not the result of muscle motion. Botox effectively handles frown lines and other creases brought about by repeated motion, but it is not intended to treat the loss of elasticity in the skin resulting from age.
It is also important to be aware of the fact that results takes up to a week to fully set in. By the end of the week, there should be a notable reduction in the wrinkles of the targeted areas, giving your face a smoother look. Depending upon the individual patient and the surgeon’s technical skills, the results can last up to four months. The treatment will likely need to be repeated later to maintain the results.
