Plastic surgeons have been using BOTOX® since 2002 to improve “animation” lines in the face: the folds and wrinkles that appear due to increased muscle activity. It’s a proven aesthetic approach that can help restore and maintain a smooth, youthful appearance.
Dr. Keith Rose offers Corpus Christi men and women BOTOX to target and improve facial wrinkles in a natural-looking way. In addition to his experience with the treatment, patients choose Dr. Rose for BOTOX because of his broader work in facial surgery and skin procedures. This foundation has given him expertise in the subtleties of aesthetics and in creating attractive outcomes. Learn more about his approach.
A Younger-Looking You
As we age, the muscles in our face become more animated, making certain lines and wrinkles more prominent. Eventually, they can become permanent.
A small number of noticeable wrinkles can age a person’s face. There’s a benefit to this fact, however: it may only take a few targeted treatments to make a person look more youthful.
BOTOX works by paralyzing the tiny muscles that form animation lines and wrinkles. Dr. Rose uses the treatment to improve areas such as:
- The forehead.
- The glabella region (the “elevens” between your eyebrows.)
- Crow’s feet at the corner of the eyes.
Reducing or eliminating lines and wrinkles in combination with a good skin care product line and treatment regimen, produces smoother, younger-looking skin.
Your BOTOX Consultation
Some Corpus Christi patients come to Dr. Rose to explore different ways they can rejuvenate their appearance. Others schedule a visit specifically to learn about BOTOX. In both cases, Dr. Rose conducts a comprehensive review of their concerns to recommend treatments, which may focus on:
- Reducing muscle animation.
- Adding volume.
- Removing excess skin and fat.
Each of these approaches can improve skin firmness and smoothness. After Dr. Rose evaluates the signs of aging and learns about the patient’s goals, he may recommend BOTOX as the best approach, possibly combined with another aesthetic treatment.
Your Experience with BOTOX
Patients typically receive BOTOX in our Corpus Christi offices. We provide a state-of-the-art treatment room and offer personalized and attentive care throughout the visit. A few details about treatment follow:
- Dr. Rose offers an anesthetic or “numbing” cream to desensitize injection areas, improving your comfort.
- If you are like most patients, you will receive treatment every three months to achieve the best-looking and most sustainable results.
- Our practice offers package programs that combine BOTOX and other skin rejuvenating procedures. Talk with us about these options for a cost savings in your treatment.
A BOTOX visit usually lasts less than 15 minutes. You should be able to return to normal daily activities immediately after treatment.
The effects of BOTOX usually begin 48-72 hours after treatment. Once the underlying muscles are paralyzed, you should see a significant reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the areas of treatment. Results allow most Corpus Christi patients to enjoy rejuvenating effects for about 3 months depending on the patients’ level of activity.
