The holidays are right around the corner, which means family gatherings and looking your best for photos. However, if you're not feeling confident because of wrinkles or fine lines, you don't have to worry — Botox® can help.
At Duval Orthodontics, J.A. Duval, DDS, and his team understand the importance of looking and feeling your best. If your smile is on point, but your skin isn't, Dr. Duval offers Botox injections to knock years off of your appearance.
Botox is an injectable treatment approved by the FDA to treat wrinkles and fine lines. The main ingredient in Botox is Clostridium botulinum. It's a bacteria responsible for botulism, a type of food poisoning.
However, Botox injections are entirely safe and regulated. But how do they work?
When Dr. Duval injects Botox into your skin, it prevents your muscles from contracting. Botox also blocks the nerve signals from your brain to your muscles, which keeps them from moving.
The significant aspect of Botox is that it's minimally invasive. You don't need surgery or anesthesia to fight off signs of aging.
During the procedure, Dr. Duval injects Botox into areas such as your forehead and between your eyebrows. Each site requires several injections to reduce the signs of fine lines and wrinkles.
Suppose you're worried about pain from the injections. In that case, Dr. Duval can apply numbing cream or ice to the area a few minutes before your injections.
The procedure takes about ten minutes, and you can go about your day as usual afterward. You may notice some redness or swelling, but that should go away within a few hours.
Botox is one of the least invasive options if you want to update your appearance. Facelifts and other invasive surgeries are effective but costly and have various risks.
A fresh new look is as simple as a few injections. Dr. Duval offers Botox when you want to get rid of conditions like:
As you get older, these conditions are relatively common. Although many people experience them, you don't have to live with these signs of aging.
Botox lasts up to six months with one treatment session. You can schedule your Botox injections now with Dr. Duval and have a younger appearance to show off at your holiday parties.
Another significant aspect of Botox injections is that you don't need to prepare. You show up for your appointment and sit for ten minutes during the injections.
You can go about the rest of your day without any downtime. Whether you have holiday shopping to do or a New Year's party to attend, Botox is a simple and effective way to shave years off of your appearance. It's also a fantastic way to improve your confidence heading into the new year.
