Smooth Forehead Lines and Other Wrinkles at the Milwaukee and Madison Area’s Parkins Plastic Surgery
Getting older is part of life, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept the lines and wrinkles that come with the natural aging process. Dr. Maida Parkins’ patients often come to her expressing concern over frown lines that are clearly visible on the forehead and between the brows, making them look older than they feel. If you can sympathize, it’s time for BOTOX® at the Milwaukee area’s Parkins Plastic Surgery.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a popular and effective way of creating a youthful facial appearance with a minimally invasive procedure and no incisions.
Do I Need BOTOX®?
Choosing the right cosmetic treatment is all about preference and goals. If you want to look younger and aren’t ready for surgical procedures, BOTOX® is a perfect choice. Not all wrinkles are created equally, however.
While some facial lines can be attributed to loss of skin firmness resulting from age, others are the result of frequent expressions, such as frowning and laughing. These often create lines around the mouth, crow’s feet by the eyes, lines on the forehead, and 11s: the parallel lines between the brows.
BOTOX® is the best choice for these expression lines, as it targets the underlying muscles, causing them to relax and soften. As such, BOTOX® and injections that produce a similar effect are referred to as neuromodulators.
In some cases, a combination of BOTOX® and dermal fillers is the best choice for comprehensively addressing signs of facial aging. This is because neuromodulators treat specific lines known as “dynamic wrinkles,” while fillers smooth out lines known as “static wrinkles.” Fillers are also ideal for filling in hollows that develop due to age-related fat and collagen loss in the mid-face, temples, and elsewhere on the face.
The Many Benefits of BOTOX® Injections
There’s a reason BOTOX® has become and maintained its status as one of the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic injections for anti-aging: It is effective and dependable. When provided by our skilled injector, Dr. Maida Parkins, patients can benefit from the additional and far-reaching benefits of this treatment, which include smooth and youthful skin, reduction of mild to moderate lines and wrinkles in many areas of the face, a naturally restored appearance, short treatment times, and no downtime. In some patients, BOTOX® minimizes migraine headaches, bruxism (jaw grinding), and excess sweating, depending on where injected.
BOTOX® Treatments in the Milwaukee and Madison Area
Your initial consultation helps Dr. Parkins understand your goals and determine the best way to smooth facial wrinkles. During the treatment session, she will take a conservative approach to ensure your results look natural. If necessary, touch-ups can be provided, but our objective is to avoid the over-treated look that many patients are fearful of when seeking BOTOX® injections. Your satisfaction is important to us, which is why Dr. Parkins and her staff take every possible measure to provide the most fitting treatment for your needs.
After treatment, results develop and mature a few weeks after application. You will notice smoother skin after three to four days and will enjoy full results after about 10 days. Touch-ups are recommended every four months to maintain ideal results.
Other Wrinkle Reducing Options
In addition to BOTOX®, Parkins Plastic Surgery also offers Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) to help reduce the look of lines and wrinkles. Compared to BOTOX®, Dysport® is much more diluted and spreads quickly, making it great for larger surface areas like the forehead. Since it is more diluted, it requires more units per area, but the price/unit costs less than BOTOX®, resulting in comparable final costs based on your treatment. The results from Dysport® are more likely to appear faster than BOTOX® and the results can last up to four months. Dysport® treatments at Parkins Plastic Surgery in the Madison and Milwaukee area are a great option for women and men looking to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
