BOTOX® Cosmetic in Madison, CT
Whenever we smile, frown, or raise an eyebrow, we communicate our emotions to those around us. But over time, the tiny muscle contractions that make expression possible eventually lead to lines and wrinkles. These movement-related wrinkles are some of the most frustrating signs of age, because they’re difficult to prevent and treat.
That’s where BOTOX® comes in: this FDA-approved injectable beautifully smooths out dynamic wrinkles on the face – and treatment only takes minutes. Whether you’d like to soften crow’s feet or lip lines, BOTOX® is highly versatile and can be customized to your needs.
With BOTOX® at Aria DermSpa, we can erase years of age and restore a smooth, wrinkle-free complexion.
BOTOX®: How It Works
In the world of injectables, BOTOX® is considered a “neuromodulator.” It contains a naturally occurring substance – called Clostridium botulinum toxin type A – that has been produced and refined in a lab which, when injected into the muscles beneath facial wrinkles, impairs the muscle’s ability to contract.
The muscles can relax, which gradually softens wrinkles and lines. Other popular neuromodulator injections include Dysport and Xeomin®. Their formulations differ slightly, but they all function in similar ways, last the same amount of time and have the same safety profile.
BOTOX® is most commonly used to treat the following:
- Furrows between the eyebrows (glabellar lines or “elevens”)
- Horizontal lines across the forehead
- Crow’s feet
- Smoker’s lines on the lips
- Vertical neck bands
- “Bunny lines” on the nose
Is BOTOX® Right for You?
BOTOX® is minimally invasive, making it a suitable treatment for most men and women seeking facial rejuvenation. Ideal candidates for BOTOX® in Madison include those who want a non-surgical solution to stubborn lines and wrinkles.
For ultimate convenience, this in-office treatment takes just minutes of your day to perform, making it the perfect option for busy lifestyles. And since no general anesthesia is required, there is little to no downtime, allowing you to resume your regular activities.
Patients seeking comprehensive rejuvenation may want to consider additional injectables that complement the effects of BOTOX®. While neuromodulators are great at treating movement-related wrinkles, dermal fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane® can beautifully fill deep skin depressions, like nasolabial folds and marionette lines. They can also restore fullness to the lips and certain areas of the face lacking in volume. At your consultation for BOTOX®, Dr. Lisa Donofrio will help you explore the best options to reach your cosmetic goals.
