Is Botox the best way to get younger-looking skin?

You’re tired of those deep forehead wrinkles and laugh lines and you want to do something about them…but what? You could get cosmetic surgery, but if you’re looking for something a lot less invasive that doesn’t require surgery then you may want to consider turning to our Casper, WY, dermatologists Dr. Scott Bennion and Dr. Matthew Green for Botox. Botox is a safe, effective, and non-invasive way to smooth away these dynamic lines and wrinkles that always seem to “pop” when smiling or making facial expressions.

How does Botox work?

Your brain sends signals to the muscles telling them to contract; however, when Botox is injected into certain muscle groups of the face this scrambles these nerve signals, preventing the muscles from contracting. This instantly smooths away and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is FDA-approved to treat mild to severe dynamic wrinkles of the face.

What are the benefits of Botox treatment?

There are many reasons to consider getting Botox from our team of qualified skincare professionals in Casper, WY. Some of the top benefits of this cosmetic injectable include,

A virtually pain-free experience: Most people don’t consider anti-aging skin treatments because they worry about incisions, cutting, and anesthesia. With Botox, you don’t have to worry about that at all. The needles are incredibly thin and are easily tolerated by our patients. If you’re extra nervous, we can even numb the area with topical anesthesia first.

No downtime: You lead a busy life, and you might not have the time to skip out on work for cosmetic treatment. We get it! Botox can offer you amazing results without having to take time from work or hide out at home while your skin heals. There is very minimal redness and swelling at the injection sites and you can easily return to work or your normal routine immediately after (just no heavy lifting for 24 hours).

A fast treatment: Again, we know that you have things to do and that you don’t have time to sit in our office forever. That’s what makes Botox great. In just a couple of minutes, Botox is administered by a qualified medical professional. Plus, when you turn to a doctor for Botox, you know you are getting treated by a trained, knowledgeable professional. You’re in safe hands with us!

Results you can maintain: Botox only lasts six months, but if you do decide that you love your look and want to keep it, you can work with your dermatologist to decide how often you should come in for maintenance treatments. These sessions will require fewer injections to maintain your results.

Smooth SkinThough the fountain of youth is only a myth, looking younger and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles has never been as easy as it is with today’s modern medical technology. Botox is a common and effective solution for fine lines and wrinkles and is available right in your dermatologist’s office. Find out more about Botox and how it can help you look and feel younger with Dr. Scott Bennion and Dr. Matthew Green at Central Wyoming Skin Clinic with locations in Casper, Laramie, and Gillette, WY.

What is Botox? 
Botox is a cosmetic dermatology treatment which focuses on minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even preventing them from forming at all. Botox itself is a liquid which your dermatologist injects directly into the facial muscles which lie under the skin. The substance paralyzes the muscles, preventing them from moving and wrinkling the skin on top of them. This allows the skin to smooth over the muscle and prevents the skin from moving repetitively to cause wrinkles.

What can I expect during a Botox treatment? 
Before your treatment, your doctor will cleanse your skin and mark the best areas for treatment. Then, they will inject the Botox into the skin using a super-fine needle. Most treatment sessions take only about 15 minutes and sometimes provide immediate results, though many patients report maximum results in the following few days or weeks.

Am I a good candidate for Botox? 
A good candidate for Botox is in good overall health and has realistic expectations for their results. Good candidates have lines and wrinkles caused by excessive movement of the facial skin but may also benefit from Botox if they experience excessive sweating or medical conditions like migraines which do not respond to other treatments.
