As we age, it’s common that we might start seeing signs of aging on our faces. Whether you’re an expressive person or you’re just aging normally, Botox can help smoothen out your skin and help you regain your youthful glow! Your ENT doctors at Ear, Nose, & Throat Surgeons of Western New England in Springfield and Northampton, MA, can explain how Botox treatment can help your skin look young and smooth once again.

The Benefits of Botox Treatments

Wrinkles and fine lines are a natural part of aging but can make you look older than you are or can cause you to feel uncomfortable with the way that you look. It can be difficult to deal with the loss of confidence you may experience when you start noticing fine lines or wrinkles, but there’s a way to smooth out the creases in your face.

Botox treatments from your ENT doctors in Springfield and Northampton, MA, can help freeze some of the muscles in your face that contract and cause these wrinkles, giving you a natural look that will help you feel young and glowing once again! Botox treatments are quick and can be done on your lunch break. There’s no anesthesia required, and you’ll be able to return to your normal schedule immediately.

Botox is suitable for both men and women and can help your appearance be rejuvenated and revitalized once again. You’ll have to keep up with treatments a few times a year, but it won’t take much out of your schedule and can be easier to maintain as you continue receiving treatments.

Simple aspects of life like laughing, smiling, frowning, and all your facial expressions, often result in the inevitability of wrinkles. To avoid facial expressions is virtually impossible, however, with the help of botox, you can reduce the visibility of unwanted wrinkles. At Ear, Nose, and Throat Surgeons of Western New England in Springfield and Northampton, MA, our team of medical professionals are committed to helping you minimize the appearance of wrinkles.

What is botox?

Botox is a toxin that's derived from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum, and when used in small doses, the treatment can smooth the skin. The cosmetic injection aims to prevent the muscles and nerves from moving which results in wrinkles.

What are some reasons to receive botox treatment?

If considering botox, there are a variety of issues or conditions that may be ideal for enhancing the appearance of your skin, such as:

  • crow's feet (creases at the edge of the eyelids)
  • apparent smile lines
  • creases between your eyebrows
  • forehead wrinkle lines
  • spasms of the eyelid

The issues and conditions above can be determined by our team of medical professionals at Ear, Nose, and Throat Surgeons of Western New England in Springfield and Northampton, MA, by referring to the two common types of wrinkles that can be countered with botox:

  1. Dynamic wrinkles: wrinkles that are a result of facial movements and expressions (e.g. laughing, smiling, eating, etc.). Dynamic wrinkles are present in everyone but deepen with age.
  2. Thin lines and wrinkles: as you age, your skin loses the elasticity (or moisture) that maintains the appearance of youthful skin. Collagen is the protein that preserves that elasticity, however, over time, it will begin thinning out beneath the layers of your skin.

How does Botox treatment work?

Administered in small doses, Botox is often injected to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Once injected, the facial muscles and nerves that cause wrinkles are then smoothed out over time.

However, it's important to note that botox treatments lose their noticeable effect after 3 to 6 months. If you don't uphold your treatment appointments with our team at Ear, Nose, and Throat Surgeons of Western New England in Springfield and Northampton, MA, the benefits of botox wear off.

How Botox from your ENT specialists in Springfield, Northampton, and Ware, MA, can rejuvenate your face

You’ve probably heard about Botox—after all, it is one of the most popular facial rejuvenation options available today! With several botoxconvenient locations in Springfield, Northampton, and Ware, MA, the ENT specialists at Ear, Nose & Throat Surgeons of Western New England offer Botox to rejuvenate your face. Read on to learn how you can look younger and better thanks to this treatment!


More about Botox

Aging can wreak havoc on your skin, especially in exposed areas like your face. Over time, your skin becomes drier and collagen production is reduced. Due to these factors, when you show facial expressions like smiles and frowns, your skin doesn’t snap back as it did when you were younger. Instead, fine lines and wrinkles form.

Facial rejuvenation procedures like Botox can diminish the early signs of aging including fine lines and wrinkles that appear around your eyes, nose, and mouth. Botox helps minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles like these:

  • Crow's feet, small lines that appear at the corners of your eyes
  • Smile and laugh lines, which run from your nose to your mouth
  • Furrows, the deep lines appearing across your forehead
  • Glabella, the deep lines appearing between your eyebrows

Botox is very effective to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and there are many other reasons to choose Botox. Consider that Botox is:

  • Safe, with a long history of clinical testing and approval by the Food and Drug Administration
  • Quick, because you will see visible results within 2 to 4 days after your first treatment
  • Effective, because after Botox treatment, your skin will look younger and more radiant

Find out how this simple treatment could smooth away facial lines and wrinkles.botox

The goals of our Northampton and Springfield, MA, otolaryngologists are to make sure that you feel great and that you are confident in your appearance. You may not realize it but we offer not only services to handle all of your ear, nose and throat needs, but we also provide cosmetic services, too. If you want to temporarily reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles without undergoing surgery then Botox may be the answer you’ve been looking for.

What is Botox?

Most people have heard about Botox but they don’t always know what it entails. These thin needles contain a safe, purified form of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that interrupts signal sent from the brain to the muscles that tells the muscles to contract. When these needles are injected into the skin they prevent muscle contractions, which instantly reduces the appearance of certain lines and wrinkles.

What kinds of wrinkles can Botox treatment handle?

This cosmetic procedure has been a wonderful option for many people looking to treat everything from minor to more severe wrinkles and lines of the face because it doesn’t require cutting or other invasive techniques. Botox works best on dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles that appear as a result of certain facial expressions.

For example, take a moment to smile in the mirror. Do you notice lines and wrinkles that appear around your mouth, eyes, nose and forehead when you smile? If so, these are the signs of aging that Botox can treat.

What goes into getting Botox treatment?

This treatment is simple, straightforward and only takes a couple of minutes. In fact, the only thing our Northampton and Springfield ENT doctors will need to do is administer the needles into the areas that you wish to treat. Of course, we also understand that people are squeamish when it comes to needles, even if the needles are incredibly small. While most patients can easily tolerate the minor and fleeting stinging sensation that comes from administering the needles, if you are still a bit nervous talk to us about applying a numbing cream to the areas before your treatment.

When will I notice results?

Most people assume that results will appear immediately, but this is simply not the case. It will take a couple of days to start to see the effects of the Botox treatment with full effects appearing within one week. Botox results are only temporary (they usually last up to six months). Of course, if you love your new look you can continue to get maintenance treatments to help your beautiful appearance last longer.

Whether you are dealing with an ear infection or you want to find out if you are an ideal candidate for Botox, turn to the experts at Ear Nose & Throat, Surgeons of Western New England. We offer locations in Springfield and Northhampton MA, to serve you better.

Years of smiling, frowning, talking and chewing can cause noticeable wrinkles to develop around your eyes. While this is a natural botoxprocess, it can age a person before their time. At Ear Nose & Throat Surgeons of Western New England in Springfield and Northampton, MA, our trained medical providers can eliminate those years of wrinkles with a Botox treatment. You've likely heard of Botox, but our staff has outlined more of the information about it here.

What is Botox?

Botox is the shortened name for botulinum toxin, which is a naturally occurring protein that, when sterilized and used in minuscule amounts, halts muscular movement. Cosmetically, a Botox treatment's purpose is to smooth out facial wrinkles by preventing movement of the muscles that cause them, particularly around and between the eyes. With these muscles temporarily paralyzed, the wrinkles that form over them gradually smooth out.

How is Botox applied?

Botox is mixed with saline and injected with a very fine needle into the targeted area of the face. Over a period of one to three days, the neurotransmitters associated with the muscles begin to respond to the treatment. At Ear Nose & Throat Surgeons of Western New England in Springfield, MA a cosmetic Botox treatment is administered in a clinical setting, ensuring safety, accuracy and cleanliness throughout the whole procedure.

How long does Botox last?

On average, our patients see results lasting three to four months, although each Botox treatment will vary based on the depth of the wrinkles and the individual response to the procedure. Botox can be reapplied approximately three to four times each year.
