What is Botox Used for?
Botox offers a safe, standout, and proven non-surgical solution for facial aging. Ever since the Botox injection procedure was approved by the FDA for cosmetic reduction of fine lines on the forehead and between the eyes, it has continued to remain the most sought after anti-aging procedure around the world. Botox treatment is usually recommended for individuals who are reluctant to choose facial cosmetic surgery options such as a facelift or brow lift.
In 2013, Botox treatment was also approved for the cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet around the eyes. For many years, Botox has also been used for non-label aesthetic purposes such as reduction of lines at the base of the nose and other facial wrinkles and fine lines. Dr. Thomas Fiala is a board certified plastic surgeon providing Botox and various other surgical and non-surgical procedures to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities.
Botox injectable treatment is designed to temporarily eliminate or diminish facial wrinkles and lines by relaxing the underlying overactive muscles that form wrinkles. Apart from cosmetic benefits such as smoothing of frown lines and removal of crow’s feet, the FDA has also approved Botox for medical purposes such as reduction of eye muscle disorders.
Botox as a cosmetic treatment is not only used as a standalone treatment, but often also in conjunction with cosmetic surgery procedures such as facelift, brow lift or eyelid lift to optimize their impact. Results with Botox will show almost immediately, and the face can look younger and rejuvenated with this treatment.
A stellar and golden plastic surgeon, Dr. Fiala may recommend Botox to his patients for improving the appearance of various facial areas through reduction of the effects of aging. He receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby locations.
The area around the eyes is typically affected by dynamic wrinkles that are caused by repetitive muscle movement and facial expression. Such wrinkles respond well to Botox injectable treatment. The medication will impact only the muscle nerves, and not the nerves of sensation. Therefore, a patient will not experience a loss of sensation in the injected area.
Brows can get permanently wrinkled due to frowning, laughing or smiling. Botox treatment can dramatically improve moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, resulting in a positive enhancement of the face. Botox injections can also be beneficial for men who need to reduce deep furrows between the brows.
Lines on the forehead can make the face appear old or haggard. Permanent creases on the forehead can occur due to aging. Botox can effectively relax the underlying facial muscles and cause the skin to become smoother and showing fewer wrinkles on the forehead. Forehead lines are horizontal, which makes the Botox treatment more effective in this area.
Jaw contouring is one of the recently discovered uses of Botox. If the muscles of the jaw used for chewing are oversized, the patient may have a square shaped face. This condition can be treated with Botox to provide a more natural oval shaped face.
