As we age, our skin naturally loses collagen and elasticity. That in combination with the movement of our facial muscles from constant expression, leads to unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. If you are looking for an alternative to a surgery and younger, more radiant skin, Botox® could be for you. In East Lansing, Botox® injections can reduce fine lines and wrinkles located around the mouth, forehead and eyes, and even treat migraine headaches and excessive sweating.
Botox® is a protein used to decrease muscle function and prevent the formation of wrinkles and deep lines. Tiny Botox® injections are done exclusively by Dr. Colony in the office in East Lansing and take only a few minutes. The placement and number of injections will be determined by Dr. Colony during your complimentary consultation. Patients may resume normal activities immediately following treatment and it generally takes three to seven days for results to take full effect. Results can last from 3-6 months, though for best results, most patients will have Botox® treatments every four months.
Both men and women who have horizontal forehead lines, lines between the eyebrows (the 11 lines), and lines at the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) can often benefit from Botox® injections. Ideal candidates will be healthy with realistic expectations for the outcome of their procedure. The best way to determine if this treatment is right for you is through a consultation with Dr. Colony.
What do I need to know before getting Botox?
Botox is not a permanent solution against wrinkles and aging. Regular treatments are encouraged not only for the maintenance of results but for improved results every time.
How long does Botox last?
Each patient is different, so the longevity of Botox ranges. However, patients can expect their Botox to last an average of 3 to 4 months. The initial treatment usually lasts the least amount of time, but the results last longer with the following treatments. Consistency in your Botox schedule is key to ensuring good results and the maintenance of those results.
Will my Botox be noticeable?
With proper Botox treatments, the injections will enhance your face without completely altering it. You can enjoy the subtle difference without looking “artificial”.
At what age should I start Botox?
Botox works best when preventing future wrinkles from popping up, so starting treatments early is recommended. Patients who are 20 and older will benefit the most from Botox’s prevention abilities.
What is Botox used for?
The botulinum toxin in Botox relaxes the muscles to smooth out pre-existing wrinkles and prevent the formation of new signs of aging. Along with the injection’s ability to prevent wrinkles and lines on the face, Botox can brighten the skin adding a youthful glow to your appearance.
Recently had filler and botox done by Dr. Colony and I can’t say enough about how good it looks. I’ve gone a few other places in town and feel like he is by far the best!
I am beyond thrilled with my choice of a plastic surgeon. Dr. Colony is not only incredibly smart and he's got the bedside manner going for him which is quite hard to find in surgeons. I have not only recommended Colony to many friends, but I've actually realized a couple of friends had gone to him before without me realizing.
Was very cautious, and thought long and hard about whether I should or shouldn't. Awesome decision. Should have done it a long time ago. A great accomplishment that couldn't have been done without the help of Dr. Colony and his awesome team. If you're living a minute with any self-doubt or low self-esteem about a certain body part, put your Nikes on and JUST DO IT!
