Botox Provider in Dallas
A combination of factors can cause facial lines, including repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows that cause skin to furrow and fold. Additionally, free radicals from the sun and environment can cause a cellular change, reduction of collagen, and damage.
Botox is a medically produced drug that is injected underneath the skin. It is used to temporarily alleviate moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines in adults, as well as to treat muscular conditions. This drug reduces wrinkles on the skin by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles.
One Botox injection will last between four to six months. After that period, the muscle gradually returns to normal function. The wrinkles will start to reappear and the area will need to be retreated if desired. Over time, if treated often, the wrinkles will begin to not appear as severe because the muscles are being trained to stay relaxed.
In addition to Botox, Jeauveau is another prescription medicine that is injected into the muscles and used in adults to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, or glabellar lines. Jeauveau temporarily prevents your nerves from telling your facial muscles to flex.
Dysport is a natural-looking way to smooth frown lines between the brows for up to 5 months. Dysport temporarily treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity.
