Despite following strict skincare routines, many people are unsatisfied with the appearance of their skin as they age.
Botox® is the most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure in the United States, and for a good reason. The results are almost instant, and with experienced hands the procedure comes with very few side effects. While avoiding the sun can help combat aging, the anti-aging effects of topicals modalities are limited.
At PureLee Redefined, Dr. Marvin Lee and Dr.Kenya Lee can help you look as young as you feel by using Botox to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.
Understanding how Botox works
As you age, your collagen production drops and your skin no longer regenerates as it should. Botox doesn’t increase your collagen levels, but it makes it easier for your skin to stay wrinkle-free by weakening certain facial muscles, which will soften the appearance lines/wrinkles and slow the development of future lines and wrinkles.
Botox works very well for forehead wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, smile lines, and chin lines. If you’re doubly concerned about both wrinkles and loss of volume, you can pair Botox with dermal fillers to add plumpness to your skin.
Unique advantages of Botox
We all want to look younger and more rested, but at what price? Few people are willing to go under the knife, take time off work, or endure a painful recovery process.
Botox treatments only take about 15 to 20minutes and can often be completed over your lunch break. Patients may return to normal activities after a few hours because there is virtually no recovery time required after the injection. You may possibly experience some redness or swelling following the procedure, which typically resolves within 30 minutes.
Our specialists use very thin needles during the procedure, and if you experience any sensitivity, topical numbing creams are available upon request to make the procedure more comfortable.
The results of Botox last long enough to be worth the investment, between three to six months, depending on how quickly your body absorbs the substance.
Who’s a good candidate for Botox?
Anyone who’s in good health and is not allergic to botulinum toxin and has a few laugh lines or stubborn wrinkles can benefit from Botox.
Patients who suffer from certain neurological disorders, have weak facial muscles or are pregnant or nursing are not be a good fit for Botox. At PureLee Redefined, we assess your medical history before starting any treatment and fully explain how Botox works.
