Are the visible signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles, making you feel self-conscious about your appearance? With the spring season almost here, it’s a perfect time to think about boosting your confidence with safe and effective Botox®.
If you’re feeling like your outward appearance looks older than the age you feel inside, Dr. Adrienne Stewart and our team at Aesthetic Surgery and Dermatology of Cherry Creek in Boulder, Colorado, offer expert aesthetic treatments to help you turn back the hands of time and give your confidence a helping hand.
One of our favorite treatments is Botox because of the physical and emotional benefits it provides. Keep reading to learn more about this treatment, how it can help your self-confidence, and the other benefits it brings.
By the time you’ve reached your late 20s, decades of making facial expressions causes fine lines and wrinkles to appear. As you age, your skin’s elasticity and tone diminish. And since you continue making the same facial expressions, lines and wrinkles develop.
Botox is a neuromodulator that Dr. Stewart injects under the surface of your skin. Neuromodulators work by interrupting communication between your nerves and muscles.
This aesthetic injectable is made using a botulinum toxin that stops the signal the injected nerve tries to send to the muscle it’s connected to. As a result, the muscles don’t contract as much as they normally would when your face moves during facial expressions, helping your skin smooth out and restoring a more youthful appearance.
And at Aesthetic Surgery and Dermatology of Cherry Creek, you can be confident that you’ll receive expert care, because Dr. Stewart, a board-certified dermatologist, performs all of the injectables herself right in her office.
Botox helps you feel better about yourself by combating the unpleasant emotions that can accompany looking older than you feel on the inside.
Many of our patients have shared the added confidence boost and other emotional benefits they’ve experienced with regular Botox use, including:
In fact, so many patients have talked about these positive side effects that medical researchers are now investigating the use of Botox in treating depression. They hypothesize that because facial expressions send feedback to the brain about emotions, Botox could help with mood.
There are many aesthetic products that can restore your youthful appearance and reduce the visible signs of aging. But there’s a reason Botox has been the most popular aesthetic injectable year after year: the many benefits it offers.
Here’s a look at what Botox can do in addition to boosting your confidence:
Research shows that when you get Botox from professional aesthetic providers, like Dr. Stewart, the injections are safe and effective. The Food and Drug Administration first approved this specific neuromodulator for aesthetic use more than 20 years ago.
Regular Botox injections give you a natural-looking more youthful appearance. In fact, that’s the top reason millions turn to this treatment year after year. But your Botox results are technique-sensitive, so always visit an experienced aesthetic professional.
According to recent medical research, Botox isn’t only good at smoothing away existing fine lines and wrinkles. With regular injections, you can also stop deeper lines and wrinkles from developing.
Botox injections are quick. You only need 15-20 minutes for treatment, so you can sneak in an appointment on your lunch break or between errands. But your results after treatment last up to four months, so you enjoy your younger appearance for an entire season.
With Botox, you don’t have to worry about a lengthy recovery period or worrisome side effects. We give you a few simple precautions, but otherwise you can return to your normal daily activities immediately.
And with Botox, side effects — if they occur at all — are typically very minor and include injection-site swelling, bruising, or redness. You can avoid these by following your pre- and post-Botox instructions.
