What is BOTOX?
Diminishing early signs of aging in the upper face is simple with BOTOX injections at Skin Center Boston. BOTOX injectable treatments are also ideal for individuals who wish to fight off the development of annoying dynamic expression creases. Over time, smiling, laughing, and other facial expressions can cause wrinkles that stay put, even when the face is fully relaxed. BOTOX injectable treatments can significantly reduce the development of these lines by limiting these muscle movements and providing the tissue above the muscles the time to smooth itself without interference. This facial rejuvenation procedure helps people achieve a youthful and silky smooth look.
Who Can Get BOTOX?
BOTOX injections are great for those in the Boston, Backbay, or Brookline, MA areas who wish to smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles on their upper face in a nonsurgical way. Often thought of as a preventive anti-aging treatment, BOTOX is a terrific nonsurgical treatment for people who have obvious forehead wrinkles or noticeable furrows between the brows. BOTOX around the eyes can also reduce Crow's feet. BOTOX is not ideal for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. During a consultation with dermatologist Dr. Doktor, patients should disclose any medical history so Skin Center Boston can verify if they are a candidate.
Just Express Yourself
With BOTOX, you can smile, laugh, frown, and make any face you want without developing lines. This quick, convenient procedure can give you a youthful appearance after years of smiles and laughter. If you are looking to smooth and prevent lines across the face and live in Boston, Natick, Wellesley, or the surrounding area, schedule a consultation with dermatologist Dr. Doktor in Boston, MA to discover more about this revolutionary, nonsurgical relaxer for wrinkles.
How Do BOTOX Treatments Work?
BOTOX injections are an outpatient procedure at Skin Center Boston. At the beginning of the appointment, dermatologist Dr. Vladyslava Doktor will ask patients to make a number of facial expressions using their upper face, like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., which will help us to see where the injections need to be placed. From there, the patient's face will be prepared and using a fine needle followed by a cool compress, the BOTOX will be injected. Patients can expect the procedure to typically take about 10 – 15 minutes and are safe to return to their usual day as soon as they're finished.
What Happens After Getting BOTOX Injections?
Following the treatment, patients can resume regular activities, but strenuous activities like exercise should be skipped for at least 24 hours. It's important for patients to sleep with their head elevated for at least one night and to avoid touching the face, which may accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The BOTOX injection sites may be slightly swollen, bruised, or red for 2 – 3 days, but it will subside and no long-term side effects should become present. In many cases, it usually takes around 5 – 7 days before the full results of BOTOX are visible. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. Dr. Doktor can help patients determine when they should get their next treatment.
"I was looking for a Dermatologist to do my first filling (botox), I was nervous as I wanted to keep a natural look, keep my expression while smiling but getting ready of the annoying wrinkles! One friend recommended me Dr. Vlada. She was so kind and patient with me! As she saw that I was apprehensive because it was my first time she did the treatment in two steps with a break of two weeks, so we could see better how the muscle reacted and retouch if needed. That gave me another level of comfort and trust! And loved the results!! Doctors for me shouldn’t be just professionals on what they do, they should also hear the concerns and wishes of the patients and adapt to that! If you are like me, you are in good hands with Dr. Vlada!"- A.D. / Google / Jan 21, 2021
