Skin Problems Botox Can Improve

Find out all that Botox treatment can do for your skin’s appearance.


It seem like every time you look in the mirror a new batch of wrinkles has appeared. While the development of lines and wrinkles is a normal part of aging, it can be disheartening for the signs of aging to appear right on your face for all to see. Luckily, our Odessa, TX dermatologists, Dr. Robert Chappell, Jr. and Dr. Ritchie Rosso, have the answer you’re looking for to smooth away facial wrinkles.

If you want to say goodbye to laugh lines, crow’s feet or forehead wrinkles then Botox treatment may be the answer you’ve been looking for. Botox is a great way to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles that appear as a result of facial expressions such as smiling or squinting. However, Botox will not be able to treat static wrinkles, or wrinkles that remain visible even with a neutral face. Botox is ideal for targeting wrinkles around the mouth, nose, eyes and forehead.

What should I expect when I get Botox?

Before you choose to get Botox in Odessa, it’s important that you know more about the process. Of course, before you even get Botox our skin doctors will sit down with you and determine if your treatment goals are realistic for what Botox can offer you. Our goal, after all, is to make sure that you are satisfied with your cosmetic results.

Fortunately, getting Botox doesn’t take more than about 10 minutes, at the most. While we can apply a numbing gel to the area prior to treatment, the needles are so small that you’ll barely notice them without numbing gel. Most patients report only feeling a slight prick when the needles are administered.

One very important thing to understand is that Botox results aren’t instant. You won’t walk into our office and right out with wrinkles instantly smoothed out. It will take a few days for the results to actually appear. But when results appear you will be able to see a visible difference in the appearance of facial lines. And while results are only temporary, you can continue to maintain your youthful appearance by continuing to get follow-up injections every few months. It is normal for there to be some slight swelling or pain at the injection sites for a day or two after.
