Find out what Botox could do to help you look younger.

Are you noticing that those lines between your eyebrows are getting deeper? Want to smooth away those lines and wrinkles before they become more visible? If so, Botox may be the simplest and easiest way for our Dayton, OH, doctor Dr. Christopher Sesslar to target those early signs of aging.

What is Botox?

Botox is a simple cosmetic procedure that injects a purified form of botulinum toxin into the muscles of the face to prevent them from contracting. Once Botox has been injected into the muscles, it stops the signals from the nerves to the muscles that tell the muscles to contract. Since the muscles cannot contract, it helps to smooth away certain lines and wrinkles.

What can Botox do for my appearance?

Botox can be an excellent solution for anyone looking to take years off their appearance without the need for invasive measures. Our skin doctor understands that not everyone is ready to take the plunge into getting cosmetic surgery; however, by choosing non-invasive measures like Botox, we can easily give you excellent results without downtime. So, what wrinkles can our Dayton, OH, team treat with Botox?

Botox works by reducing the appearance and sometimes even eliminating dynamic lines and wrinkles. These lines are the ones that appear when you make facial expressions like smiling, frowning or squinting. If you have crow’s feet, lines on your forehead, or around the nose or mouth, then Botox may be able to help you.

What is involved in getting Botox?

This fairly simple procedure only takes a few minutes to complete. It’s so fast that people often choose to get it done during their lunch break. Plus, there is no recovery time with this procedure. You can immediately go back to your daily routine after getting Botox.

The needles used are very thin, so you won’t feel anything more than a slight pinch when the needle enters the skin.

When will I see results? How long do results last?

It will take a couple of days for you to see the full results of your treatment. Also, results are only temporary, lasting for about six months. Luckily, if you are happy with your results, you can continue to get Botox treatments to refresh your look.
