Using Botox for Treating Wrinkles and Folds without Surgery

Are you tired of looking at frown lines and crow’s feet? Do you desire a more youthful look without having to undergo facial plastic surgery? Men and women who want to combat the signs of aging are welcome to ask Dr. Ben Cilento at Cilento Facial Plastics about the advantages of cosmetic injectables. With a selection of injectable treatments, patients can target unwanted fine lines and wrinkles on the face without a surgical facelift. One of the more popular options for dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement is Botox.

What is Botox?

Dr. Ben Cilento of Spring, TX describes Botox as a neuromodulator. This medication is formulated with botulinum toxin type A and can reduce muscle contractions when it is injected into specific muscles of the face. The result? A smoother appearance for up to nine months! Botox is cleared by the FDA for cosmetic use, and can also be used for patients who have chronic migraines or hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Patients who have Botox injections will reveal a more youthful, refreshed, and rejuvenated facial appearance.

What areas can Botox be used?

Injectables such as Botox can be used on areas of the face where wrinkles and folds develop due to muscle contractions. The best places for using Botox are specific areas on the upper third of the face. This includes:

  • Forehead folds
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Glabellar lines

Some other areas of the face, such as the marionette lines, may be improved with other injectables such as dermal fillers. During an initial consultation appointment and examination, Dr. Ben Cilento can make recommendations as to the injectables best used for a patient’s needs. In some instances, patients may combine various injectables for a full “liquid face lift.”
