BOTOX – tens of millions of people rely on these injections to maintain a refreshed, youthful look, and Stamford is no exception. You may be surprised to find out how many of your friends and colleagues undergo regular BOTOX in Stamford to maintain a more youthful look for years longer than nature intended. Under the care of Stamford plastic surgeon Dr. Maura Reinblatt, you can expect an outcome that appears entirely natural, fresh, and youthful, never overdone.
BOTOX was the first of the world’s neuromodulators, FDA approved in 2002. The active ingredient in BOTOX works by blocking nerve signals to specifically targeted muscle strands, relaxing them to smooth the overlying skin. Constant muscle contractions such as squinting, smiling, and raising your eyebrows will eventually cause visible creases in the skin that can’t be hidden with makeup or smoothed away with creams or serums. When the actual muscle strands are relaxed, the skin returns to a more youthful smooth appearance, causing a subtle but dramatic improvement.
Any person who is 18 years old or older, in good general health, and not currently pregnant or breastfeeding is likely a good candidate for BOTOX injections. Many younger people are choosing to undergo BOTOX injections to avoid developing wrinkles, lines, and creases for far longer, while other patients are older and ready to present a more appealing, well-rested, refreshed look.
BOTOX can treat a range of issues, including:
BOTOX injections take only minutes to complete. You will be comfortably resting in a private, luxurious environment and treated by an injection specialist who genuinely cares about you and your vision for your skin, who brings a breadth of knowledge to every procedure. To ensure your comfort, a numbing cream can be applied before your injections. If this is your first BOTOX experience, we take a conservative approach when injecting the product, as every person is unique in how the muscles react. Once your BOTOX injections are complete, you are free to return to work or other activities with no downtime.
The effect of BOTOX in Stamford will take a few days to appear, typically within a week or less. The product enters the muscle strands, limiting the nerve signals that cause constant muscle contractions on the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), or between the brows (frown lines), without affecting your natural expressions – which takes real skill, and an understanding of the facial muscle structure.
A square or heavy jawline may not be the ideal you want, whether caused by aging or inherited through your family line. BOTOX injections can be administered to reshape the jawline to create a more feminine V-shaped jawline by reducing the muscle contractions in specifically targeted muscles, thus shrinking them in size. Over time, the jawline reshapes as the muscles shrink, resulting in a revitalized yet natural-looking change in your overall look.
BOTOX injections can be administered to elevate and tighten the jawline and create a more youthful upper neck contour. This procedure requires a refined, delicate technique, and Dr. Reinblatt, our double board-certified plastic surgeon has this procedure down to an art. Watch the years disappear, and a more youthful, refreshed look emerges.
