Using treatments such as Botox for anti-wrinkle options in Vancouver
Vancouver area patients who are ready to address the signs of aging are welcome to visit Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive. Our practice is suited with many methods available to help enhance one’s appearance, both the face and body. Individuals who are struggling with the formation of fine lines and wrinkles on the face are often seeking anti-wrinkle treatments that provide non-invasive solutions for their aging skin. Many patients will enjoy dermal fillers, while some may be better suited for Botox injections.
Botox is a safe yet non-invasive way for patients to achieve a more beautiful appearance and combat fine lines, wrinkles, and folds that appear on the face. This medication is made of botulinum toxin type A, which is a neuromodulator. Neuromodulators work by relaxing muscle contractions in the muscle groups they are injected into. This helps in smoothing the skin above the muscle and providing an anti-aging benefit.
Botox injections are known for lasting approximately six months, so patients who want to maintain the results they achieved with this injectable are encouraged to schedule biannual appointments with Dr. Adam Maddox for reinjection. While there is no way to stop the aging process, patients can undergo certain procedures to slow it down and age gracefully.
Botox is best for specific areas of the face, typically the upper portion. It is used for the glabellar lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. This is where the injection works best. Other areas of the face may benefit from dermal fillers, which provide instant volume and reduce the depth of lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers can be used with neuromodulators to provide optimum results.
