Preventative Aging

botox treatments

At Summerskye MD, we provide a range of treatments which have become effective methods to restore youth and prevent aging.

Botox is a common and popular non­surgical anti­aging treatment used to prevent the signs of aging in both men and women. It is relatively painless and only topical anesthesia is used. Botox is administered using a fine needle to minimize discomfort. Results typically appear within two weeks

How does it restore youth and rejuvenate skin?

Botox involves injecting a diluted version of the botulinum toxin into muscles on the face. The toxin blocks the signal that tells the muscles to contract, preventing skin from creasing and causing wrinkles. Botox can be effective for "expression lines” ­ such as frown and surprise lines on the forehead, crow's feet around the eyes and "turkey neck" lines on the throat. Botox has many positive characteristics, including its anti­aging properties. This has made Botox a well- accepted remedy for professional anti­aging and skin treatments. Our preventative aging treatments can include the injection of Botox doses to help reduce the level of aging. This has become a known secret behind many well preserved faces in Hollywood, and nowadays can be found closer to home.

What to Expect From Botox Treatments to Prevent Aging?

For crow’s feet, this cosmetic treatment would be injected to three areas of the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the orbicularis oculi muscle on the other eye.

To reduce the look of surprise lines, this will be administered as five injections into muscles in your forehead which will be one in the procerus muscle and the other four in the corrugator muscles. This temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles, resulting in a reduction in the appearance of those lines.

These treatments require no recovery time. Most of our patients who take Botox treatments do not require a day's rest and can get back to their work or life activities immediately after the treatment.

The best part of the preventative anti­aging treatments that are done under the supervision of Dr. Cheema at Summerskye MD is that, most patients notice significant results by 3 or 4 days. The full effect of relaxing the targeted muscles is in place by 2 weeks. Deep skin wrinkles caused by the dynamic effect of the muscles, such as deep frown lines can gradually improve over time, in addition to the early effect seen shortly after treatment.
