Dr. Christopher Sesslar of Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH offers minimally-invasive treatments that help you look younger without plastic surgery. For people in Dayton, Ohio, Botox is one of the most popular options, and you may be curious about what makes these injections so appealing.
What Makes Botox Unique?
Injectable anti-aging treatments work by correcting the underlying cause of wrinkles. Most dermal fillers rely on increasing the amount of hyaluronic acid to plump your skin with water molecules or collagen to strengthen the underlying structure. Botox is unique because it contains botulinum toxin A which is an ingredient that temporarily relaxes the muscles in your forehead and around your eyes.
What Types of Wrinkles are Treated with Botox?
You develop different types of wrinkles as you age. The lines that you see in the upper part of your face are known as dynamic wrinkles that are caused by muscle movements of your facial expressions. The muscle contractions pinch your skin. Over time, your skin loses the ability to smooth out wrinkles. Botox injections for Dayton, Ohio, residents give your skin time to relax, and the lines disappear within seven to ten days. The treatment is most effective for horizontal lines across your forehead, vertical lines between your eyes, and crow’s feet at the outer corners of your eyes.
When Can I Start Using Botox?
Some of the earliest signs of aging form in the upper part of your face, and you may see these changes in your early to mid-30s. For some people, botulinum toxin A has helped to delay the onset of more severe wrinkles. The best news is that it’s never too late to start Botox treatments.
Does Botox Affect My Facial Expressions?
The muscular relaxation effects of botulinum toxin A do prevent you from moving certain areas of your face, but you don’t entirely lose the ability to make facial expressions. Your facial expressions may be less noticeable. Some people notice that they learn how to use these muscles less with repeated injections of botulinum toxin A.
Can Botox Be Used with Dermal Fillers?
Botulinum toxin A injections work well with dermal fillers for overall facial rejuvenation without surgery. Dr. Sesslar and his team choose injectable products that target your specific signs of aging so you look naturally younger.
