Every time you smile, frown, or furrow your brow in concentration, expression lines pop up on your face that accentuate your emotions and thoughts. As time goes by, however, these lines tend to become increasingly etched into your skin, often making you look angrier or older than you are.
At Aesthetic Assets, our team of aesthetic specialists, led by Pam Andow, RN, and Stacey Molina, BSN, understands the effects that unwanted expression lines can have on your appearance, and we’re here to help. While you can certainly resort to more invasive techniques, such as a facelift or skin resurfacing, few treatments beat the simplicity and results that Botox® and Dysport® deliver — in mere minutes.
Tackling that frown
It can be extremely frustrating to have a face that appears to be frozen into a permanent frown thanks to deepening glabellar lines — the vertical lines that form between your eyebrows. The good news is that we can reduce these lines with Botox or Dysport in one simple treatment that takes us just minutes to administer.
Both injectables work on the same premise — quieting the muscles that contract to form these unwelcome lines. After your injections, it takes less than a week for these lines to fade away, leaving you with a blank canvas again and putting you back in charge of your expressions.
And you can enjoy these results for 3-5 months, at which point you simply return for another quick-and-easy round of injections.
Say goodbye to forehead lines
If the horizontal lines across your forehead have deepened with time, here again we can turn to a simple injectable to solve the problem. In these cases, we use Botox, which quiets the muscles that form these lines, leaving you with a smoother, wrinkle-free forehead.
The treatment takes less than 10 minutes and there’s no downtime afterward. In 3-7 days, your forehead lines will gradually smooth away and most patients enjoy these results for 3-4 months.
Getting rid of crow’s feet
Another great application for Botox are the fine lines that appear around the corners of your eyes called crow’s feet or laugh lines. If you find these lines are nothing to laugh about, a quick set of injections will reduce their appearance, giving you a more youthful look.
Here again, we administer the injections in just minutes, and you’ll realize your results within a week. Once the muscle-quieting effect starts to wear off after several months, you can return for another treatment to keep your appearance looking fresh and vibrant.
