What is BOTOX?
Every time you see your reflection in the mirror, are you concerned about fine lines or wrinkles developing on your forehead and around your eyes? Known as dynamic wrinkles, these skin changes develop from repetitive facial movements, like smiling, laughing, and squinting. As you age, these lines and wrinkles eventually become more pronounced and can make you look less youthful than you may feel. Thanks to BOTOX, we can often temporarily stop the appearance of moderate to severe forehead creases, Crow's feet, and frown lines. Derived from a filtered strain of botulinum toxin type A, BOTOX works to temporarily relax the muscles that cause those movements, letting the overlying skin become smoother on its own. At Mississippi Center for Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Steckler is excited to perform BOTOX injections as a minimally invasive cosmetic option to help men and women attain a smoother, rejuvenated appearance. Our team welcomes you to contact our office in Ridgeland, MS to find out more about the advantages of BOTOX.
How Does BOTOX Work?
Throughout your initial BOTOX consultation at Mississippi Center for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Steckler will perform a facial analysis to decide which areas would benefit from treatment. During this quick 10-minute-or-so outpatient treatment, the solution will be placed into the problem areas of your forehead or upper face using a fine needle. You may notice a mild pinch or pinprick feeling, but most of our patients find this to be a durable discomfort. At the end of your session, you are welcome to leave our Ridgeland office and carry on with your day. You might have some redness, swelling, and bruising at the treatment areas, but this should not last long. We recommend that you avoid rigorous exercise and do not touch the injection sites for a day or so. You will likely begin to notice your aesthetic results after a few days, and they can last up to four months or so. Dr. Steckler can help you decide how often you need follow-up treatments to meet and maintain your aesthetic results.
