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® in East Lansing
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.
Who is a Good Candidate?
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.
