What your cosmetic dermatologist in Kaysville wants you to knowbotox

Botox treatment can help diminish the early signs of aging and even treat some common medical conditions. If you are suffering from fine lines and wrinkles or other early signs of aging, you owe it to yourself to investigate what Botox can do for you. Dr. Jacqueline Silkey, your cosmetic dermatologist at Silkey Skin MD in Kaysville, UT wants to help you uncover how Botox can help you.

Botox is a medicine derived from a toxin produced by a bacterium known as Clostridium botulinum. In injectable form, Botox temporarily paralyzes or “freezes” the muscles and nerves around the injection area.

Botox is well regarded for its use in cosmetic treatments including diminishing the appearance of:

  • The frown lines in your forehead called furrows
  • The lines between your eyebrows, called glabella
  • The smile lines around your nose and mouth
  • The wrinkles around your eyes called crow’s feet

Dr. Silkey will discuss beforehand the number of injections you will need and the results you can expect, depending on the area treated. During your Botox treatment, she will use a tiny needle to inject small amounts of the medicine under your skin.

You can expect results to last between 4 to 6 months. Additional maintenance treatments are recommended to get the most out of your Botox regimen. Treatment cost varies depending on how many injections of Botox you need.

Botox can help combat the early signs of aging. You deserve to look and feel your best and Botox can help. For more information on Botox and other restorative and cosmetic skin care treatments, call Dr. Jacqueline Silkey, your cosmetic dermatologist at Silkey Skin MD in Kaysville, UT. Call today!
