Using Botox injections to turn back time

Working with a dermatologist to achieve beautiful, healthy skin is a smart choice. Dr. Melanie L. Adams of Columbia, Maryland, is a dermatologist serving patients who are interested in general and cosmetic dermatology services. Those seeking a solution for wrinkles and folds on the face may be considering nonsurgical solutions and will want to work with our team to learn more about their options. For many of our patients, we may recommend Botox treatment for wrinkles and folds when dynamic lines form.

Why should I consider botulinum toxin injections?

Botox is one of several quality neuromodulators on the market today formulated with botulinum toxin type A, a medication that reduces contractions when injected into the muscles. Botox has been used for many years in various areas of medicine and can even be used to treat hyperhidrosis, cervical dystonia, and chronic migraines. Our team educates patients on the many uses of Botox to help them determine if they are a good candidate.

Botox treatment for wrinkles is the primary use of this neuromodulator at Dr. Adams’s office. When Botox is injected into specific muscles on the upper third of the face, it can reduce the overall appearance of wrinkles and folds that develop on the forehead and around the eyes. This makes it an excellent solution for glabellar lines, forehead folds, and crow’s feet.

Is Botox safe?

Botox is a brand of neurotoxin that has been around for many, many years in medicine and is used for both general and cosmetic dermatology conditions. It is FDA-approved and continues to be used safely and effectively to treat dynamic wrinkles and folds. Our team can assist if you have questions about undergoing Botox injections or other treatments for aging skin.
