Is Botox Treatment Right for Me?

Botox injections offer an effective way to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Here at Enhanced Dermatology of Orange County in Tustin, CA, our dermatologists provide this treatment to make patients' skin look radiant—read on to learn how.

Botox minimizes visible signs of aging

Wrinkles and fine lines on your face often occur as a result of making dynamic facial expressions. For instance, raising your eyebrows can result in furrows in your forehead, while laughing and smiling can cause fine lines around your eyes and lips. Vertical lines between your forehead can develop after years of squinting in the sun or focusing intently.

When you're younger, these lines diminish the second you stop making the expression. Unfortunately, your skin becomes less elastic as you age. Eventually, the expression lines become permanent. Depending on where they're located, the lines and wrinkles may not only make you look older, but also prompt people to ask if you're tired or angry.

Fortunately, Botox injections from your dermatologist can help smooth your skin by targeting the muscles that control facial expressions. Botox is derived from a purified form of the botulinum toxin. Once injected, it blocks nerve impulses that control facial muscles. When the muscles no longer contract, your skin becomes smoother and fine lines and wrinkles disappear or diminish.

Treatment only takes a few minutes and can last three months or longer.


Is Botox right for you?

Botox can be a good option if:

  • You understand what Botox can and can't do: Botox is effective in improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by dynamic facial expressions. It's not quite as effective in minimizing deep wrinkles. If your wrinkles are deep or you're concerned about sagging skin, your Tustin skin doctor can offer other options.
  • You're a good candidate: If you're in good health and 18 or over, Botox may be an excellent option for you. You shouldn't use Botox if you're pregnant, nursing or have a neuromuscular disease.
  • You have wrinkles in any of these areas: Botox injections can be used to smooth vertical lines between the eyes and minimize forehead furrows, crow's feet around the eyes, and laugh/smile lines.
