Botox has been used for several years to reduce the appearance of the inevitable signs of aging. Lines, wrinkles, and folds can develop on the skin after the age of 30 due to a decrease in the skin’s tightness and collagen production. Instead of living with the signs of aging, patients have an alternative solution. Botox is a wonderful injectable that is often administered in dermatological practices, but is now offered through Levenson Smile of Worcester, MA to enhance the appearance patients hope to achieve.
Botox injections are safe, effective, and can address lines and wrinkles that are caused by muscle contractions. Unlike dermal fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane, which are gels that can add volume to deep wrinkles and folds, Botox injections are used to reduce muscle tightening. This, in turn, reduces the appearance of wrinkles that were created by these contractions over the long term. It is commonly used in areas of the forehead and eyes to reduce crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and wrinkles on the upper portion of the face.
Dr. Levenson enjoys offering this service to his patients to help in their rejuvenation. Patients who have smile makeovers in his practice can now enjoy additional improvements to their face to complete the look they want to achieve. He has a steady hand and he is trained in providing injections for patients who want to complement their dental work with a complete transformation of the face.
Botox is made from botulism toxin A, but has been proven safe for injection into the muscles. It is also used medically for several conditions including hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and involuntary muscle spasms of the body. Dr. Levenson focuses on providing this treatment for patients who are interested in its anti-aging benefits. It is primarily used for cosmetic improvements to the face and can be used with dermal fillers for an overall reduction in fine lines and wrinkles of the face.
