You can make visible signs of aging a little less obvious with Botox. Botox is among the many services offered by Westgate Dermatology and Laser Center.

How does Botox work?

Botox temporarily relaxes facial muscles needed to make dynamic facial expressions, such as frowning or squinting. When the muscles relax the skin on top relaxes and becomes smoother.

What issues does Botox treat?

Botox is an excellent choice if you've developed vertical lines between your eyes. Even the smallest lines can make you look tired or even angry. Botox injections offer a simple way to minimize the appearance of those very noticeable lines and make you look more refreshed.

The treatment also relaxes horizontal lines that cross your forehead and smooths out crow's feet, wrinkles around the mouth and nasolabial fold lines.

Is Botox treatment painful?

Your provider uses thin needles to minimize pain during your treatment. The injections only take a few seconds and require no downtime.

Will I notice immediate results?

It takes a little while to see the full results of your Botox treatment. You may notice a softening of lines and wrinkles about a week after treatment, although the full effects won't be obvious for another week. Botox injections keep your skin smoother for three to four months. Luckily, it's easy to maintain your results by scheduling periodic appointments throughout the year.
