Give Yourself the Benefits of Botox for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is on the way, and you may already have some plans for a gift for that “special someone.”  Have you thought about making you that special someone?  If you’re one of the many people who aren’t happy with forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and frown lines, consider giving yourself the gift of Botox for Valentine’s Day from DermSurgery Associates of Houston.

There’s a lot of misinformation out there surrounding Botox therapy, but here’s the fact: Botox is a safe and effective treatment for wrinkles when administered by an experienced clinical dermatologist. It’s very important with any type of cosmetic treatments to have the work done in a professional, licensed and legitimate clinic. Many factors are taken into consideration when performing treatments such as Botox, and only a practitioner skilled in these therapies should be consulted.

Is Botox a good treatment choice for you? A quick appointment with one of our dermatologists will give you the answer.

What does Botox do?

Botox is administered with a very small needle into the areas of the face you want to smooth out. The solution effectively restricts the nerve impulses that affect the facial muscles that create the lines on our faces. With Botox treatment, the muscles relax and are prevented from contracting. The good news is, even with all this going on under your skin, your common facial expressions are not affected. In other words, you can still show surprise, concentration, happiness and all the other feelings that you want to show up in your face.

There’s no getting around aging – it’s a part of life.  But at DermSurgery, we like to add the word “gracefully” to “aging.”  Aging gracefully is made easier when your face takes on a more vibrant, youthful appearance.

How long before Botox works?

Every patient is different, but it’s common to see the seemingly miraculous results of Botox treatment within three to five days. Most patients enjoy the face-smoothing results of this treatment for three to six months. Because the process is so simple – quick injections, no sedation of any kind, able to get back to regular daily activities immediately after your visit – you can easily schedule future treatments without any disruption to your schedule. Minimal down-time and no post-treatment “weird” feelings are just two of the many reasons Botox is the therapy of choice for everyone from world-famous celebrities to great-looking people you see every day.

Let’s face it: We all want to look our best. That’s why we think Botox treatment would make a thrilling Valentine’s Day surprise for that special someone in your life. And don’t forget you. What better gift can you give to yourself than a fast, effective and powerful treatment for those lines that have seemed to appear on your face out of nowhere?

Frown lines, crow’s feet, worry lines and all kinds of other appearance-marring wrinkles have met their match with Botox. But it’s important to remember that it’s not just the drug itself that makes for a wonderful new appearance. It’s also the skill and experience of the practitioner who evaluates you prior to treatment and then administers the solution. Never agree to Botox treatments from anyone other than a trained dermatologist.

At DermSurgery, we help people throughout the greater Houston area to look better and feel better about themselves. We’re here for you when you want the very best in cosmetic dermatology. Call us, and ask about how Botox could work for you or your sweetheart. And don’t forget to say “Happy Valentine’s Day.”
