Botox Injections in Fairfield County
Wrinkles, crow’s feet and fine lines are to be expected as you get older, but that doesn’t make them any more enjoyable to see. These common signs of facial aging can make you appear tired, upset and, of course, older than you really are.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Sandra Margoles often meets with patients who seek a youthful boost but are not quite ready to undergo surgical procedures such as facelift or brow lift surgery. For these patients, Dr. Margoles is happy to offer Botox. This FDA-approved, purified form of highly diluted botulinum toxin is used to relax the underlying muscles in order to smooth out the facial skin.
If you seek to turn back the clock without undergoing surgery, Botox non-surgical injectables can help you restore your youthful appearance in no time.
Benefits of Botox
Botox is one of the quickest and safest ways to treat wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Wrinkles caused by smiling and frowning will improve, resulting in a more youthful, energetic look. For some patients, Botox helps them achieve a more rejuvenated appearance without invasive surgery. For others, the procedure helps prolong the results of surgical procedures such as facelift.
Botox Can Treat:
- Squint lines between your eyes that make you look tired, angry, sad or upset
- Wrinkles and lines around the outer eye area (crow’s feet)
- Frown lines across the forehead
- Asymmetry in your eyebrows or face that can be corrected by relaxing muscles
- Vertical lip lines
- Skin bands on the neck
- Eyelid spasms
- Migraine headaches
Your Botox Treatment with Dr. Margoles
Botox treatment with Dr. Margoles can be completed in her Fairfield County office in as little as 30 minutes. Prior to treatment, the injection area will be cleansed thoroughly. Botox injections are virtually painless; however, Dr. Margoles may apply a topical anesthetic onto the treatment area in order to minimize discomfort. She will then use a thin needle to inject small amounts of Botox into the wrinkle-causing muscles. When injected, the botulinum toxin blocks the muscular nerve signals, in turn weakening the muscles so they cannot contract. This causes the wrinkles above the muscles to smooth out, resulting in a younger-looking, softer appearance.
The amount of Botox used for your treatment will depend on your specific concerns, goals and the extent of your wrinkles. Crow’s feet, for example, usually require two to three injections, while lines on your brow could require five or more. Prior to your treatment, Dr. Margoles will discuss your goals and options in order to produce the natural-looking results you seek.
What to Expect After Your Treatment
Botox requires no downtime; you are free to return to your normal activities immediately after your treatment. Slight discomfort, swelling and redness is to be expected; however, these side effects are only temporary and should resolve quickly. Strenuous activity is discouraged for the remainder of the day.
Depending on your age, skin condition and lifestyle habits (e.g., sun care, smoking), the effects of Botox can last anywhere from three to six months. Because the effects of Botox are temporary, Dr. Margoles encourages her patients to schedule repeat treatments. This allows patients to maintain their reinvigorated, youthful look for years to come.
