As you age, your skin loses moisture and elasticity, causing fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and other issues. Fine lines and wrinkles develop around the lines of expression. Morris Dermatology & Joliet Dermatology in Morris, and Joliet, IL, are experts at treating the early signs of aging. You can fight fine lines and wrinkles with Botox, one of the most effective anti-aging weapons available.
What Botox is and What it Does
Botox is a powerful wrinkle relaxer that is derived from a type of bacteria. Botox has been rigorously tested and approved by the FDA for anti-aging, and to treat certain medical conditions including chronic migraines. It works by temporarily relaxing and “freezing” the muscles around the injection site.
Types of Botox
Botox comes in its original form, designed to minimize the appearance of common fine lines and wrinkles, including crow’s feet, furrows, marionette lines, and smile lines. Another type of Botox, known as Xeomin, is designed specifically to target deep creases, wrinkles, and lines between and around your eyebrows.
What You Can Expect During Botox Treatment
During your Botox session, our dermatologist will inject small amounts of Botox using a tiny needle. The injections are well tolerated and each session takes only a few minutes out of your day.
What You Can Expect After Botox Treatment
You may notice visible results within 48 hours after treatment. Fine lines and wrinkles will be reduced, and your skin will appear much smoother and younger-looking. Our providers may recommend maintenance treatments periodically to keep you looking your best.
