Here at Shah Aesthetic Surgery in Denver, Colorado, we are huge fans of Botox from Allergan. Botox is made from a highly purified protein toxin. When injected in small quantities into facials muscles that cause wrinkles, the muscles weaken temporarily. In their weakened state, they can’t produce the same amount of wrinkling. Most patients will see results lasting around 3 months. If a patient is consistent with their Botox usage, those same muscles can atrophy. This reduces their strength over time and reduces their wrinkling capability. This usually means that they can lengthen the time period between injections.
When muscles don’t move, the skin wrinkles less making you look younger. Patients will still need good anti-aging skin care and sunblock to keep the collagen and elastin in the skin as healthy as possible. Regular Botox treatments and medical skin care at Shah Aesthetic Surgery will keep you looking younger!
