Botox Injections in Sterling Heights
Whether you’re 35, 55, or 75, there’s nothing fun about wrinkles. You’ve tried the night creams, the sheet masks, the facials, the laser therapy… and nothing seems to be working. Perhaps in your teens you tanned a lot, maybe you smoked, or maybe you did everything “right” in terms of proper skin care maintenance, but you’re still stuck with forehead lines you dream would just disappear. The good news is you don’t have to be stuck with fine lines. The solution to your problem areas is Botox injections, and this procedure can be found right here in Grosse Pointe Dermatology in Sterling Heights.
What is Botox?
Botox is an incredibly common solution to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In fact, it is the most common non-surgical enhancement treatment. As of 2017, more than six million Botox treatments were administered by licensed professionals to patients. Botox is a neurotoxin; it temporarily freezes muscles, which causes the fine lines to significantly reduce or disappear altogether (depending on the amount and the frequency of appointments).
How is Botox administered?
Botox is an incredibly easy and quick procedure! In fact, sessions can take as little as 10 minutes. Our board certified dermatologists Dr. Balle and Dr. Lipinski pride themselves on their swift and (almost) painless needle technique. A predetermined and mutually agreed amount of Botox will be injected via a needle into the problem areas. The most common Botox injection sites for Sterling Heights residents include forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet (lines on the outer corners of the eyes), and “smoker’s lines” or lines that form under the nose and beside the mouth. All in all, the procedure really shouldn’t take longer than thirty minutes.
Is Botox right for you?
There’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to cosmetic procedures. Basically, it comes down to a simple question: do you have wrinkles that bother you? If so, would you feel better if they were gone? Getting Botox is incredibly commonplace, in fact, many patients are starting injections in their late 20s or early 30s in order to prevent deeper lines down the road. Here at Grosse Point Dermatology, we believe that if getting Botox makes you feel better about yourself, why not give it a try?
How much Botox do you need?
That depends. Our doctors will gladly set up a consultation appointment to go over your problem areas. From there, Dr. Balle or Dr. Lipinski can discuss with you the proper treatment plan — i.e. how much Botox to administer and how frequently you should schedule sessions. Typically, Botox wears off within about four to six months, so most patients receive treatments two to three times a year.
