Using Botox to Address Fine Lines and Wrinkles on the Facial Area without Plastic Surgery
- Posted on: Nov 15 2018
At the practice of Dr. Jessica Belz, patients in the area of San Antonio, TX can achieve a more attractive look with surgical treatments for the face and body. However, some patients may not be in a situation where full-fledged surgical interventions are necessary. The early signs of aging can be improved with our team with the use of cosmetic injectables such as Botox.
What is Botox?
Botox is an injectable that has been used for not only medical purposes but cosmetic services. Botox is a neuromodulator that, when injected into the muscles, helps in reducing muscle contractions. Over time, doctors realized one of the benefits this injectable was that it provided smoother skin. The lines and wrinkles of the face are reduced when Botox is used in the muscles of the face. These dynamic wrinkles can be erased entirely with the use of this injectable, which is what makes it a popular choice for patients who are not quite ready for surgery.
Why choose Botox?
Botox is formulated with botulinum toxin type A and is considered safe and effective for imperfections of the face, including wrinkles and folds caused by dynamic tension of the muscles. It is approved by the FDA for cosmetic and medical use and continues to be one of the most requested non-surgical treatments for aging skin. Botox is non-invasive, long-lasting, and an affordable option that doesn’t require patients to have their skin cut or treated by a doctor. Patients with mild to moderate signs of aging may find that Botox is the best option for them, and are welcome to consult with our professionals about moving forward with treatment.
