Nationally prominent Montclair dermatologist provides safe and effective Botox treatment
Patients often seek a Board-certified dermatologist who has years of experience providing certain procedures. When patients are looking for a provider of Botox treatment, they find those qualifications and more in nationally prominent dermatologist Dr. Jeanine Downie at image Dermatology® in Montclair. Dr. Downie has more than 21 years of experience in treating patients with injectables. In addition, Dr. Downie has enjoyed a more youthful appearance from her own Botox injections for more than 19 years. She will personally attest to excellent results from treatment including the diminished appearance of lines and wrinkles on her face.
Treating signs of aging
Over time, lines and wrinkles can develop for a number of reasons. Excessive sun exposure, tanning beds, smoking and tobacco use, and the natural process of aging can leave skin less supple and firm. This may make people feel self-conscious about their appearance. Surgical procedures such as facelifts that can improve the appearance involve general anesthesia, incisions, and lengthy recovery periods. Fortunately, surgery is not the only solution to achieving a more youthful appearance.
Turning back the hands of time
Dr. Downie and her team offer a premier line of injectables including Botox and dermal fillers. Botox is a neuromodulator that contains a substance which reduces muscle activity and prevents muscles from contracting. This ingredient targets muscles that cause vertical lines on the forehead (frown lines), lines at corners of the eyes (crow’s feet), and frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). Treating glabellar lines with Botox was approved by the FDA as a safe use of the injectable in 2002. As a result, the product was marketed as Botox Cosmetic in the United States.
The results of Botox appear with seven to 10 days after the initial treatment session, and can be enjoyed for many months. Treatment is quick and simple and does not require any downtime. This allows patients to return work or resume normal activities immediately after their appointments.
