Are you tired of looking in the mirror and seeing fine lines and wrinkles taking over your formerly youthful-looking face? There’s an alternative to scheduling a facelift — you can simply add Botox to your regular beauty routine.

At Springer Wellness and Restorative Health in Atlanta, Georgia, Dr. Robert E. Springer III is an experienced professional who administers regular Botox treatments to achieve smoother, younger-looking skin and maintain your look long term.

Understanding Botox

Botox is a neurotoxin refined from Clostridium botulinum. While this is a form of bacteria that causes food poisoning, Botox is very far removed from its predecessor, and has been used in cosmetic treatments for over 15 years. It is also used to treat lazy eye and excessive sweating.

However, Botox is most well-known for treating facial wrinkles, particularly those on the forehead, between the brows, and beside the eyes. Botox works by paralyzing certain muscles in your face, preventing them from moving and creasing the skin, which relaxes wrinkles. Furrowing your brow, squinting, and smiling will no longer result in crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.

Botox is a quick and easy treatment, but only lasts a few months before you require another round. When you’re treated regularly by an experienced professional, Botox can give you a natural, lifted, more youthful appearance.

How to determine if Botox could help you

If you’ve been avoiding mirrors, scrutinizing yourself in the mirror, and spending lots of money on anti-aging and wrinkle creams, you might benefit from a round of Botox. Botox works on mild-to-moderate facial wrinkles like crows feet and worry lines.

If you’ve had Botox before, you can get another round a few months after your last treatment. If you’re taking the leap for the first time, don’t be afraid to come in to see us for a consultation with a Botox specialist. We help you determine whether the minimally invasive procedure is right for you.

What you should know about Botox

Before you come in for Botox, there are a few things you should know.

Choose the right provider

Opting for cheap, bargain Botox treatments from inexperienced providers can result in illness or unsightly results. You should always get your Botox treatments from trained, well-reviewed professionals. Dr. Springer makes Botox accessible in a well-run medical clinic and administers injections according to best practices.

Botox does not last forever

Botox is just a mild neurotoxin, so it wears off over time. If you like the appearance of Botox, you’ll have to come in once every few months for a touch-up. However, since it stops your face from making wrinkles, this means it can literally stop fine lines from worsening.

Botox doesn’t solve all wrinkles

Botox works on dynamic wrinkles, which disappear when the muscles aren’t being used. Static wrinkles, like laugh lines and marionette lines, are caused by things like sun damage and environmental pollutants instead of muscle movement, and they require dermal fillers to be completely hidden.
