Men and women who desire enhancement of the facial appearance might feel as though their only option is plastic surgery. However, Dr. Armen Serebrakian of the Pinhole and Larkspur communities may recommend nonsurgical treatments as well. He is pleased to offer cosmetic injectables that are readily available for both men and women who want to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and folds on the face. One of the injectables often requested by name is that of Botox.
Dr. Armen Serebrakian describes Botox injections
Many men and women have heard of Botox, but might not be aware of how it actually works. Botox is a medication that is formulated with an ingredient called botulinum toxin type A. When this is injected into a muscle, and can reduce muscle spasms and contractions. In doing this, specifically on the muscles of the face, it can smooth away fine lines and wrinkles that impact a patient’s overall appearance. These signs of aging are then reduced and sometimes even eliminated to allow patients the chance to turn back the hands of time!
Is Botox safe?
Botox has been used in the field of medicine for decades. Not only was it approved by the FDA for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles on the face, it is also utilized for other conditions as well. Botox injections can reduce chronic migraines and headaches, address overactive bladder, and even help patients who are dealing with excessive sweating, called hyperhidrosis. Botox has been found to be incredibly helpful in many areas and continues to be popular as a cosmetic treatment for facial aging. We encourage patients to ask about this and other cosmetic injectables available, including dermal fillers and collagen stimulators, also available at the Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center.
