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 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 Dr. Weishar has become one of the most popular Botox injectors in Bucks and Montgomery Counties.
Botox is derived from a neurotoxin 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 this substance into a targeted area, we’re able to prevent muscles from contracting and further producing aging lines and wrinkles. Botox and other related products are safe and effective tools that also allow us to prevent 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 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 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 individual needs and the number of units and where the injection sites are customized to optimize the treatment for each patient. 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 is usually unnecessary. Side effects are typically minimal and short-lived, but can include: headaches, bruises, soreness, or swelling. In addition, each patient is re-evaluated at two weeks and given minor adjustments if deemed necessary.
