Botox is intended to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and creases by reducing muscle activity, administered through a series of injections. Botox is the country’s most common cosmetic treatment. Each year, nearly 5 million procedures are administered in America (data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons).
Botox is 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 is very fast, and no recovery time is required, so the treatment can be completed during a lunch break.
The Advantage of Botox Treatment by a Board-Certified Dermatologist
Dr. Bhatt is a board-certified dermatologist and 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 relax the movement of the facial muscles that cause your lines and wrinkles. The procedure is not permanent, but the results are lasting and effective.
There are things one should learn about Botox before seeking the treatment. One of the most important things is that Botox does not affect wrinkles or lines that are not the result of muscle motion. Botox effectively handles frown lines and other creases caused by repeated motion, but it is not intended to treat the loss of elasticity in the skin.
It is important to know that results take up to a week to appear. 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 on the individual patient and the surgeon’s technical skills, the results can last up to four months. The treatment will need to be repeated later to maintain the results.
