Many people wish to reduce the signs of aging from their face, but are reluctant to opt for plastic surgery. For all such people, non-surgical treatments such as Botox serve as an effective substitute for a temporary period of time.
Botox as a Anti-Aging Treatment
Botox is a highly popular injectable anti-aging treatment, which has just recently been approved by the FDA to treat crow’s feet around your eyes. Dr. Bradley Hubbard, a qualified plastic surgeon in Dallas, provides Botox treatment for patients who are unwilling or unable to choose surgical options.
Dr. Hubbard advises his patients the pros and cons of cosmetic surgery in Dallas as well as the pros and cons of minimally invasive treatments such as Botox. He helps the patients make informed choices that suit their needs in the best way. When Botox treatment is performed by an expert, it can achieve reduction in wrinkles and fine lines on the face almost similar to what a skin tightening surgery can achieve. However, Botox is not suited for deep wrinkles, creases or folds. Botox also has another ability to reduce excessive production of sweat in the underarms.
Where is Botox Injected
Botox medication is injected directly into the facial muscle that has shrunk due to aging or other factors. The medication temporarily reduces muscle function and causes it to relax. The result is that the wrinkle formation gets eliminated or reduced. Some of the terrific and apparent aspects about Botox is that it is a very safe treatment and avoids all the risks and complications usually associated with surgery. The downtime is almost non-existent, and the patient can go back to work immediately after the treatment.
As an experienced cosmetic surgeon in Dallas, Dr. Hubbard recommends Botox treatment especially for busy moms and working individuals who do not have spare time for a surgery. Results with Botox are visible almost immediately, but full results can be seen over the next few days. The results with Botox will last between three and six months.
