Reverse Visible Signs of Aging This Fall

Sep 30th, 2016 In: Anti-Aging

As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, October 2016

Dear Dr. Anne,

It appears I'm giving the wrong impression with my aging expression. Where did those lines between my brows come from? They greet me every morning and I don't like it. My friends all rave about Botox® and how great it is for women like myself. I have never had a cosmetic injection or procedure before. I would love for you to tell me a little bit more about Botox®  ... I think it's time I gave it a try.

Lynn M., Kernersville


Dear Lynn,

You've come to the right place. I was one of the first physicians in the Winston-Salem area to offer Botox when it was approved by the FDA in 2002 and I was trained by the best - Dr. Jean Carruthers - the doctor who pioneered the use of Botox for cosmetic use. Botox® would likely be my first choice for treating vour lines. I have treated thousands of patients who are very satisfied with their results. Let me tell you a little about Botox® and you can decide for yburself.

Botox can reverse the visible signs of aging while maintaining your natural expression, with real, noticeable results, no surgery and no downtime. The results can be seen in 3-4 days with maximal effect in 2-3 weeks and last three to four months. The number 11s - those vertical lines that appear between your brows - result from muscle contraction. Lines develop perpendicular to the direction of muscle contraction. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the horizontal corrugator muscles over your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold in a vertical orientation. After years of frequent contraction, the wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest.

Used safely in medicine for decades, and in the US since 2002, Botox® Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses to gently relax the muscles of facial expression and soften the persistent lines that form between the brows. Botox has revolutionized Cosmetic Dermatology by safely and effectively reversing the visible signs of aging.
