Botox offers an easy, temporary way to minimize fine lines and wrinkles that can make you appear older. Dr. Douglas Hegyi, your botoxcosmetic surgeon at Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Lapeer and Rochester, MI, discusses how Botox treatment can help you look your best.

How does Botox work?

Botox targets dynamic wrinkles, which develop when you make facial expressions. When you receive Botox treatment, a small amount of the purified botulinum toxin is injected into the muscles under your skin. The toxin stops nerve signals from reaching your muscles and prevents the muscles from contracting. When the muscles no longer contract, the skin relaxes and those fine lines and wrinkles become less noticeable. Botox injections are temporary and usually last about three to six months. In order to maintain your appearance, you'll need to receive more injections periodically.

Can Botox in Lapeer and Rochester help me?

Botox injections are a good choice if you want to improve the appearance of:

Horizontal Lines on Your Forehead: Years of squinting, frowning and making other facial expressions can cause furrows that cross your forehead. Botox injections offer an excellent way to smooth out the skin on your brow.

Vertical Lines Between the Eyes: Lines between your eyes can make you look tired or angry when you're perfectly rested and in a great mood. After Botox treatment, the lines will gradually become much less obvious.

Crow's Feet: Laughing and smiling causes small wrinkles at the corners of your eyes. Botox treatment relaxes those wrinkles and helps you look more youthful.

Nasolabial Folds: Nasolabial folds, the lines that extend from your nose to your mouth, tend to become more pronounced with time. Botox injections offer a subtle way to improve the look of the folds.

Lines on Your Neck: Many people forget about their necks when considering cosmetic treatments. Unfortunately, lines and bands can make you look older, even if your face is line-free. Botox is just as effective on neck lines and bands as it is on facial wrinkles.
