Botox is an FDA-approved injectable product and procedure that is used to treat wrinkles and lines on our faces. As we age, a lifetime of smiles, frowns, and furrows are imprinted on our faces by the repetitive motion of our muscles. Botox in Philadelphia works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles, preventing them from contracting.
At Springhouse Dermatology and Aesthetics, you are in the hands of an expert practitioner with extensive experience performing Botox injections. Dr. Margo Weishar is currently recognized as a top 3% ExpertInjectorTM. With these qualifications, it’s no surprise that she has become one of the most popular providers of Botox in Montgomery County and Bucks County.
Neuromodulator treatments are designed to put your muscles in “time-out.” As we express and move our facial muscles, lines are created in the skin, and you may look angry or tired while your muscles are working overtime. When injected directly into the targeted muscle, a neuromodulator will cause it to relax. While you are still able to make expressions and look natural, the muscles are not able to make the movements that contribute to fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment is quick, very comfortable, and leaves patients looking and feeling brighter and more youthful.
Botox is a substance that blocks neurons, the type of cell that makes up our nervous system, from sending signals to each other. By injecting tiny controlled amounts of Botox into a targeted area, the substance prevents muscles from contracting and further producing aging lines and wrinkles. Botox and other related products are safe and effective tools that allow us to prevent the signs of aging before they become permanent.
While Botox injections are fairly well established, first pioneered for cosmetic use in the late 1980’s, it’s important to choose a doctor who practices modern injection techniques. Dr. Weishar uses advanced micro-injection techniques to produce a refreshed and natural look, and prevent the frozen appearance associated with older injection methods.
As this procedure is meant to address age-related wrinkles and fine lines from forming, our patients tend to be men and women in their 30’s and 40’s who want to maintain a more youthful or refreshed look before permanent age lines set in. Botox in Montgomery County is commonly used to minimize lines and wrinkles in the following areas:
Dr. Weishar evaluates each patient’s anatomy to decide the appropriate dose of medication that will achieve the best result. Each patient has different needs so the number of units and the location of the injection sites are customized to optimize individual treatment plans. The ability to do this stems from years of experience and advanced training only available to board-certified dermatologists.
Injections are non-invasive, so patients can expect to return to their normal daily activities immediately following their appointment. In some cases, a topical anesthetic will be applied prior to the injection but this is usually unnecessary.
Side effects of Botox in Philadelphia are typically minimal and short-lived. However, some of the most common ones include:
Dr. Weishar books a second consultation with each of her patients after two weeks. This allows her to make minor adjustments if deemed necessary.
