Say Goodbye to Fine Lines and Crow’s Feet With Botox

So, with all the lasers and other effective cosmetic treatments available for combatting the appearance of wrinkles, why does Botox® remain so popular in the United States? Simply put, in the right hands, it’s a fast and effective therapy for temporarily reducing fine lines and wrinkles associated with aging skin.

Dr. Alexander Stein is a well-respected, board-certified dermatologist who leads our team here at Stein Dermatology and Skin Surgery. We’re proud to serve the communities in and around Chula Vista, California, with the highest quality care available for your skin.

Ours is a full-service dermatology practice that provides medical and cosmetic services for patients of all ages. Who better to see regarding nonsurgical cosmetic therapies that can keep you looking your best without compromising your skin’s health?

Dr. Stein is happy to provide information about Botox for reducing the appearance of crow’s feet and frown lines, and why the treatment meets his rigorous standards for effectiveness and safety.

How does Botox work?

While the results of Botox are seen at your skin’s surface, the real work takes place in the muscular tissue that lies beneath. These muscles create all those interesting nonverbal facial lines and skin folds that occur when you smile, frown, or otherwise express yourself.

When your skin retains youthful levels of collagen and elastin, these lines essentially disappear as your muscles relax. As your skin ages, however, all those lines can become permanently etched in skin that’s no longer as elastic as it once was. This leads to the wrinkles that eventually develop into deeper grooves across your facial palette.

Botox injections work by relaxing the targeted facial muscles enough that they still provide some movement to convey your thoughts without producing exaggerated facial expressions that create wrinkles. 

Here at Stein Dermatology, we use Botox CosmeticⓇ to tackle crow’s feet, frown lines between your brows, and forehead furrows.

When should I consider Botox?

At our office, Dr. Stein performs a thorough evaluation before making recommendations regarding Botox and other cosmetic services. It’s important to note, however, that it’s not so much your age as your skin’s condition and the severity of your lines that determines when or if you should consider Botox.

It’s certainly a very popular treatment for individuals in their 40s and beyond. But it’s also becoming increasingly common for individuals in their 20s and 30s to seek cosmetic therapies like Botox to reduce the appearance of aging and prevent the future formation of fine lines and wrinkles.

We’re also happy to see more and more men take advantage of Botox and other therapies that are aimed at keeping your skin healthy and less prone to wrinkling as you age. Our office is set up to make you feel comfortable regardless of your age or sex.

Can I combine other therapies with Botox?

Dr. Stein can certainly develop a personalized and comprehensive treatment strategy that addresses all levels of skin care. That’s one of the many benefits of having your cosmetic routine managed by a practicing physician who is a skin specialist.

He may, for instance, recommend microneedling to boost your natural collagen production, help firm your skin tone, and address issues such as acne scars, sun damage, and melasma. 

Depending on your needs, he could also create a treatment regimen that includes laser therapy to reduce the appearance of rosacea, erase visible veins on your face or legs, or eliminate fungal nail infections.
