Why patients in Milpitas may want to consider Botox
If you have ever researched anti-aging solutions, you know that there is no shortage of options. Deciding which route to choose can be overwhelming. Do those over the counter or prescription creams really work? Do I need extensive plastic surgery? All of these questions may be swirling around your mind. At the Center for Dermatology Cosmetic and Laser Surgery in Fremont, we see many patients who are concerned about lines and wrinkles on the face. For these patients, we often recommend Botox as a way to smooth out the wrinkles to look years younger.
Botox is derived from botulinum toxin type A. When injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve signals that cause the muscle to contract. This creates a smoothing of the skin that reduces the depth of lines and wrinkles on the face. The result is a more youthful appearance and an increase in confidence and self-esteem.
Botox has been revolutionary in cosmetic dermatology as a minimally invasive method for looking younger. Decades ago, patients were faced with plastic surgery as their only option for eliminating wrinkles on the face. As many know, plastic surgery involves the use of anesthetic, incisions, and it can require extensive and often painful recovery. While there are still times when plastic surgery is necessary, Botox has given many patients access to the results they want with no downtime or prolonged recovery.
The first step to receiving Botox injections is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Dhawan to find out if you are an appropriate candidate for treatment. Patients who receive Botox must be in good health and should not be pregnant or nursing. During your consultation, Dr. Dhawan will sit down with you to discuss your concerns and address any questions you may have about Botox. After a physical examination of the face, he will be able to determine if Botox is right for you.
The injections can be completed in a single, brief office appointment. Patients are free to return to work or other activities immediately.
