Botox for wrinkles, skin texture, and facial recontouring in Colorado Springs
Botox is a household name at this point, and for good reason: it is a versatile treatment that can be used to lessen wrinkles and pores, reshape facial features, minimize a “gummy” smile, and even reduce excessive sweating. At Perfect Skin in Colorado Springs, CO, botulinum toxin injections are a popular cosmetic treatment. Having performed performing botulinum injections for 20 years, Dr. Schroeder is highly skilled and uses precision and artistry to help her patients achieve their desired results without looking like they’ve had “work done.”
Botulinum toxin is a neuromodulator, which means that it reduces nerve signals (temporarily). In the case of Botox and Jeuveau injections for cosmetic purposes, botulinum toxin reduces the appearance of active wrinkles formed by muscular contractions, as well as prevents new wrinkles. It does this by blocking the signals from your nerves to facial muscles and can be used to treat wrinkles such as:
- Frown lines (“the 11s”).
- Horizontal forehead wrinkles.
- Lines next to the corner of your eyes (“crow’s feet”).
- Lines by the nose (“bunny lines”).
Reduce excessive sweating
Excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis, can be more than just a nuisance. It can be extremely embarrassing and cause a variety of issues in your social and work life. With strategically placed botulinum injections in the area of excessive sweating, the fine muscles surrounding the overactive sweat glands become relaxed, and the result is a reduction in sweating that lasts for about six-to-twelve months.
Refining Facial Contours
While there are many aesthetic practices only offer botulinum injections for wrinkle treatments, not many can deliver advanced techniques that subtly recontour your face to enhance appearance. Dr. Schroeder knows how to balance a face and routinely performs:
- Reshaping the tip of your nose.
- Subtly relaxing muscles around your eyes to enhance their shape.
- Reducing the appearance of a “gummy” smile.
- Sharpening your jawline.
- Lifting your eyebrows.
- Correcting facial asymmetries.
- Slimming of a square jaw.
