You can kiss those frown lines and forehead wrinkles goodbye with Botox.

It often feels like time passes us by in the blink of an eye. Suddenly, we start to notice lines appearing around our eyes when we smile. wrinkles, botoxWe notice that those lines around our mouth still remain even after we stop talking. It can be distracting to see these signs of aging on your face. If this sounds like you, it might be time to ask our Peoria, AZ dermatologists Keith J. Haar, M.D.; Lisa Hynes, M.D.; Julie Jacobs, D.O.; Ryan Stevens, M.D.; and Charles Rodriguez, M.D., what Botox can do for you. 

The lines, creases and wrinkles that develop as a result of constant muscle contractions can cause some early signs of aging. While dermal fillers only temporarily mask the issue before the body reabsorbs the substance for good, Botox is an effective way to treat dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle contractions for at least six months (some patients notice longer results).

What is Botox?

Botox is injected into the muscles of the face to temporarily prevent muscle contractions, which in turn causes these muscles to relax. Since the muscles are unable to contract, it will lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as well as reduce the development of more wrinkles.

Botox is a safe and effective way to treat wrinkles around the lips, nose, mouth, forehead and eyes. Plus, Botox works great with other cosmetic dermatological services like dermal fillers. Our Peoria, AZ skin doctors would be happy to talk to you about which cosmetic options are right for you.

How Long do Results Last?

Once you get Botox you won’t immediately see results. About three to four days after your treatment you will start to notice a change, with full results showing up within one week. Similar to dermal fillers, Botox results won’t last forever. Results can last up to six months (but can sometimes last a bit longer); however, you can choose to get follow-up Botox treatments to help maintain your youthful results.
