Botox was once viewed as an elixir of youth reserved for rich and famous Hollywood types. Along with that popularity came the stigma associated with looking like you’ve had “work done.” Today, Botox has not only become more commonplace, but its injection techniques have also been perfected to the point of reducing wrinkles without making you look overdone. This injectable treatment is available everywhere — and Wyoming is no exception. Dr. Gerard is proud to provide the people of Gillette with her specialized Botox injection treatments.
Struggling with Wrinkles?
Wrinkles and fine lines occur due to a gradual loss of collagen and elastin production. As we lose these two vital proteins, our skin becomes more lax and we become more aware of our age. Sadly, frequent muscle movements work to exacerbate the appearance of wrinkles caused by aging. The more we frown, furrow our brows, and smile, the further the deepening of wrinkles becomes. Those who are tired of looking at these unsightly lines can find a quick and easy treatment in Botox.
Wrinkles Treatments with Botox
Botox is comprised of a neurotoxin called botulinum. In small doses, this compound causes temporary muscle paralysis at the injection site. By injecting this treatment into certain areas of the face, we prevent muscle movement and effectively stop the signs of aging. When you come in for a visit, Dr. Gerard will take the time to assess your facial structure and recommend a course of injections best suited for your features. Afterward, the actual injection procedure will take as little as 5 minutes. No downtime is required after the treatment and your results will look natural, allowing you to maintain discretion.
Results of Botox Injections
Results can be noticed 3-7 days after treatment. The paralysis provided by Botox typically lasts for 3-4 months but has been reported to last up to 6 months in some cases. While active, the treatment will prevent excessive muscle movement and leave your skin completely wrinkle-free. You will look radiant and can come in for subsequent appointments to keep your new look going.
