Botox®, a purified form of the botulinum toxin, offers several aesthetic benefits that can help enhance your appearance in a natural and subtle way.

It’s important to note that the success of any cosmetic procedure, including Botox®, depends on factors such as the skill of the administering aesthetician, appropriate dosing, and understanding your specific aesthetic goals. At Dartmouth Dermatology, we always prioritize open communication and a comprehensive understanding of your expectations to ensure that we achieve the most natural and satisfying results possible.

Botox® is highly effective in reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, particularly those formed by repeated facial expressions such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. By temporarily relaxing the underlying muscles, Botox softens these lines, giving your skin a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Through its muscle-relaxing properties, Botox® can also help prevent the progression of dynamic wrinkles, especially when started at an early stage. By inhibiting repetitive muscle contractions, it minimizes the formation of new lines and wrinkles, thus preserving your skin’s youthful texture for a longer period.

Botox® can be used to address asymmetrical features by relaxing specific muscles that might be more active on one side of your face. This can help create a more balanced and symmetrical facial appearance, enhancing your overall aesthetic harmony.

Botox® injections strategically placed around the eyebrows can create a subtle lifting effect, improving the position and shape of the brows. This non-invasive brow lift can open up the eyes, reduce the appearance of hooded eyelids, and give a more alert and refreshed look to your face.

While primarily a medical benefit, Botox® can also be used to treat excessive sweating in areas like the underarms, palms, and soles of the feet. By blocking the nerve signals that stimulate sweat glands, Botox effectively reduces sweating, providing you with more confidence and comfort in social and professional settings.

What is the procedure?

The procedure for Botox injections typically involves several key steps, and the frequency of the injections depends on the specific treatment and individual response. Here’s a general overview of the process:

  1. Consultation: The first step is to schedule a consultation with us to evaluate your medical history, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine whether Botox is the right treatment for you.
  2. Preparation: During the procedure, the targeted area will be cleaned, and a topical anesthetic will be applied to minimize any discomfort.
  3. Injection: Using a fine needle, we will administer Botox directly into the targeted muscles or areas identified for treatment. The injection process usually takes only a few minutes, and the number of injections will depend on the specific treatment plan designed for you.
  4. Post-procedure Care: After the injections, you will be advised to avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area to prevent the spread of the toxin. We will provide specific aftercare instructions to optimize results and minimize potential side effects.

For cosmetic purposes, Botox® injections are typically repeated every 3 to 6 months to maintain the desired effects, as the effects of Botox® are temporary and gradually wear off over time.
