Botox San Antonio | Dr. Jose Barrera, MD
Looking to improve facial wrinkles?
Botox San Antonio can be used to improve facial wrinkles. Botox is a neuromodulator, meaning that it works at the junction between the nerve and muscle to temporarily weaken the muscle. Botox works by blocking the passage of a key signal, thus preventing the muscle from contracting. Botox has been studied for over 25 years and has been found to be safe and effective in treating facial wrinkles of the glabella and forehead. The chemical compound for Botox is botulinum toxin. Botox comes as Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin. There are other neuromodulators which can work as effective as Botox Cosmetic at reducing facial wrinkles. Dysport or Abobotulinum toxin works at the same neuromuscular junction and achieves virtually the same effect. Xeomin or Incobotulinum toxin has been shown to have the same natural results as Botox A. Dr. Jose Barrera is a certified injector of Botox San Antonio, Dysport San Antonio, and Xeomin San Antonio.
Are there other methods to improve facial wrinkles?
Laser skin resurfacing can improve facial wrinkles for the forehead, crow’s feet, face, eyelid, and neck. Botox can be applied to the forehead and crow’s feet to improve wrinkles but it’s effect is temporary. Laser skin resurfacing can be used to improve facial wrinkles throughout the face and neck as well as treat facial scars. In addition, it can be used to treat dyschromias or brown spots as well as acne scarring. Botox San Antonio can be combined with laser skin resurfacing such as the CO2 laser. Dr Jose Barrera is a certified laser surgeon and uses the Ultrapulse Fractional CO2 laser with both the Active FX and Deep FX laser to treat the periorbital and perioral regions of the face. We also utilize the Syneron Candela CO2RE Laser to achieve facial rejuvenation as well as IPL, BBL, ResurFX, and Erbium Glass Lasers to treat ethnic Hispanic and Asian patients seeking facial rejuvenation.
