When you look at your face in the mirror, do you focus on the lines and wrinkles that make you appear older than you actually are? Over time, your facial muscles can become tense and worn-down from creating different expressions and even bad oral habits such as smoking. It can take away from your youthful appearance and cause your self-confidence to decline. Fortunately, Dr. Melissa Warnick offers BOTOX treatment, which can help turn back the clock on aging and help restore your youthful glow.
BOTOX treatment near Teays Valley often involves a series of injection to certain overactive facial muscles that result in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Warnick dilutes a bacteria called botulinum toxin and injects it in areas of the skin that have bunched-up due to frequent use. The injections help freeze these muscles, allowing them to relax the wrinkles and lines in the skin for a more smooth and youthful appearance. Typically, the treatment takes less than an hour, depending on how many injections you get, and will produce noticeable results in five to 10 days.
