Due to aging, stress, and other related factors, it is inevitable for the skin to lose its youthful elasticity and glow as it starts to wrinkle and sag. Once these signs of aging start to appear, there could be so little we can do to reverse them. Even skin care products would prove to be of no use.
Here at Deschutes Dermatology Center, we help patients regain their youthful appearance through Botox in Bend OR. Botox gives hope to patients struggling with the signs of aging.
Botox: a toxin?
It is true when others say Botox is derived from the botulinum toxin, a microbe that is known to cause botulism or food poisoning. The toxin has the ability to paralyze any muscle activity temporarily, which is why it is an effective treatment for facial wrinkles and other problems such as excessive sweating, repetitive neck spasm, and an overactive bladder. Botox has even been known to address chronic migraines in some patients.
Why get Botox?
Botox injections have the ability to block particular chemical signals from the nerves, specifically those that cause muscles to contract. Botox injections target the underlying muscles that cause the wrinkling of the skin. Once injected, the facial muscles relax temporarily.
Moreover, Botox can correct several signs of aging, including:
- Crow’s feet — lines that form around the corners of the eyes
- Frown lines found in between the eyebrows
- Forehead lines — furrows that form when the eyebrows are raised
