How Botox from your dermatologist in Urbandale, IA, can help you look younger
The normal process of aging can dramatically affect your skin. You begin to lose moisture, collagen, and elastin, components that are essential to young skin. When you frown, squint, or smile, fine lines and wrinkles can begin to appear in areas of your face. Fortunately, your dermatologist has the answer to looking younger. It’s called Botox.
Dr. Timothy Abrahamson at Greater Des Moines Dermatology in Urbandale, IA, provides a wide range of cosmetic and medical dermatology services, including Botox treatment to help you look younger.
Botox can help you if you notice:
- Fine lines radiating from the corners of your eyes, known as crow’s feet
- Deep creases running across your forehead, known as furrows
- Deep creases between your eyebrows, known as glabella
- Lines running from the corners of your mouth down to your chin, known as marionette lines
- Deep lines running from your nose down to your mouth, known as nasolabial folds
Botox is an injectable substance derived from a bacteria, and it works by temporarily “freezing” the nerves and muscles around the injection site. As a result, your skin will appear smooth and youthful.
Botox injections are tolerated well by most people, and you can request a numbing spray beforehand. The amount of injections you need will vary depending on the area or areas being treated.
Botox has been rigorously tested and approved by the FDA for the treatment of early signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles.
If you are experiencing the early signs of aging, you can fight back! Minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with Botox, available from your dermatologist. You may also consider dermal fillers, dermabrasion, and other cosmetic dermatology services to keep you looking your best.
