As we age, repeated frowning and furrowing of the brow muscles often creates permanent creases around our eyes. While it is possible to correct these unattractive lines with cosmetic eye surgery, Botox® is a non-surgical option with no downtime. Dr. J. Darrell Steele, a dental cosmetic surgeon in Coppell, TX, offers Botox® to restore youthful skin and refresh tired eyes.
Botox® can improve the look of a furrowed brow, frown lines, or crow’s feet. Many patients, both men and women, request Botox® to soften the horizontal creases in the forehead.
How Does Botox® Work?
Botox® paralyzes the muscles that are responsible for creating the deep lines, allowing the skin to become smooth without the need for cosmetic eye surgery. The results of Botox® can be seen within seven to ten days and typically last from three months, though repeated use of Botox® has shown longer lasting results.
What to Expect at Your Appointment for Botox®
Botox® injections cause only mild discomfort and can be performed using topical anesthetic cream or even nitrous oxide gas. Dr. Steele may use a cold compress to slightly numb the surface of your skin to lessen the sensation. The entire session may take 15 to 20 minutes, depending upon the treatment site.
You may experience redness and slight bruising at the treatment site. Dr. Steele will caution you not to massage the area that has been injected, as it may cause the Botox® to spread to other areas. You will begin to notice a subtle smoothing of the lines within a week but will still retain the ability to express yourself with a frown or a smile. Dr. Steele places Botox® conservatively to ensure a natural yet improved appearance.
