As one of the oldest and most recognized anti-aging treatments, Botox has remained a top choice among men and women who seek professional treatment for the signs of aging. While the “magic” of Botox is in part due to the capabilities of the drug alone, there is also the need for expert application if the desired results are to be achieved. Dr. Roger Koreen has more than 28 years of experience providing the professional anti-aging treatment patients from Huntington and surrounding areas most want.
Botox is a medication that was once used in general medicine to treat certain muscular conditions. Seeing the capabilities of the drug, researchers began investigating what the neuromodulator, in small doses, could achieve on a cosmetic level. The Botox Cosmetic was developed through years of research and testing, and has continued to prove itself effective at reducing lines and wrinkles on the upper portion of the face.
A neuromodulator is a medication that inhibits the transmission of commands to contract muscles. Treated areas do not receive messages from the brain to contract and thus remain relaxed at all times. Due to the nature of the neuromodulator, it is vital that an injector have in-depth knowledge of the facial anatomy and the drug itself. Inappropriate application can lead to undesirable results.
Patients of Dr. Roger Koreen can schedule facial rejuvenation with Botox confident in the skills of their provider. Dr. Koreen has not only completed advanced training but has many years of hands on experience with Botox and other injectibles. The goal of treatment is not just to smooth furrows and lines around the eyes and on the forehead and to lift the brows to open up the eyes. When administering treatment, Dr. Koreen is also focused on the precision that will achieve naturally beautiful results in which expression remains possible.
There are many reasons to receive professional treatment from an experienced physician. If too little of the medication is administered, the overall result may be too subtle. Too much, on the other hand, or injections into the wrong muscles, and there is a possibility for over-relaxation that leads to drooping. Though the effects of Botox injections last only a few months, this would be far too long to live with a droopy eyelid or a “surprised” expression.
Dr. Koreen is a board-certified physician who has achieved outstanding results for hundreds of patients. His treatment begins with a thorough consultation and examination of the skin. In this examination, he will determine which muscles are tightened and to what degree, enabling him to identify areas for injections and dosage for optimal results.
