Do you want to look younger? Are you tired of feeling like you no longer identify with the person you see in the mirror?
With cosmetic procedures like Botox and SkinPen microneedling performed by Dr. Naomie Warner at Nevada Eye Physicians, you can feel rejuvenated and refreshed and love the skin you’re in again.
What is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic treatment that injects a purified form of botulinum toxin into muscles to help temporarily paralyze them. Using Botox helps reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, laugh lines, frown lines, and forehead lines.
With Botox, you can look younger, fresher, and more vibrant without resorting to permanent cosmetic surgeries or other options. Choosing Botox can be done regularly, with injections every two to three months to maintain the results.
But patients can also choose to have Botox on a one-time basis if they don’t want to keep up with it. Because Botox is a temporary way of treating wrinkles and lines, any effects will wear off over time if not maintained.
Who is a Good Candidate for Botox?
Although you may love the idea of Botox helping you look and feel better about your appearance, it’s not suitable for everyone. You may be a good candidate for Botox if the following applies to you:
- You’re in good health
- You have realistic expectations regarding what Botox can achieve
- You’re not currently pregnant or breastfeeding
- You are not allergic to any of the ingredients found in Botox
- You do not have any muscle or nerve conditions
- You want to use Botox to treat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face

Using Botox for Cosmetic Purposes
The most common way to use Botox is for cosmetic purposes. It targets specific facial muscles that lead to wrinkles and fine lines.
Using Botox temporarily relaxes these muscles and prevents them from contracting. Continued use of Botox allows the skin to look smoother without worrying about fine lines and wrinkles marring its surface.
Most effects of Botox last about three to six months. At this point, maintenance becomes necessary. Botox is most commonly needed between the eyebrows, on the forehead and around the eyes.
What is SkinPen Microneedling?
SkinPen microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that helps improve the appearance and texture of your skin. It uses a handheld device with tiny needles to microneedle the skin’s surface.
Using these needles, the SkinPen creates managed micro-injuries to the skin’s surface. Creating these micro-injuries helps kickstart the body’s ability to heal itself naturally.
By doing this, it promotes the production of collagen and elastin. Both collagen and elastin are necessary for keeping your skin firm and looking youthful and invigorated. Although SkinPen microneedling uses tiny needles, SkinPen is not painful. You will experience little to no pain and will be comfortable during the treatment.
How Does SkinPen Microneedling Work?
During SkinPen microneedling, you’ll have the SkinPen gently moved across the area you want to treat. This will create controlled micro-injuries in the skin.
These tiny blemishes help skincare products absorb more deeply and trigger the body’s healing response. SkinPen microneedling over time also helps to increase the production of elastin and collagen.
Increasing the production of these helps improve the appearance of your skin’s texture, minimize the appearance of fine lines, and faded stretch marks or scars. After SkinPen, you’ll feel more confident and at ease with yourself.
Who is a Good Candidate for SkinPen Microneedling?
You may be a good candidate for SkinPen microneedling if:
- You want to improve the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, fine lines, and your overall skin texture
- You don’t have any active skin infections
- You have never been diagnosed with skin cancer
- You’re not pregnant or nursing
- You haven’t had any sunburns recently
- You have realistic expectations about what SkinPen Microneedling could achieve
- You’re in good health
How Long Do the Results of SkinPen Microneedling Last?
Most patients that undergo SkinPen microneedling note that the treatment takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete, depending on the number of areas treated and the size. Once done, you may not start seeing results immediately. Patients typically need three treatments performed about three weeks apart for the best results.
It can take several weeks before you begin seeing results from SkinPen microneedling due to the natural repair process of your skin. If significant damage has occurred to your skin over an extensive period of time, this damage won’t go away immediately.
You may not start seeing final results for up to six months following your last SkinPen microneedling treatment. Results of SkinPen microneedling last four to six months.
This cosmetic treatment allows you to find the brighter and more vibrant version of yourself hiding in the shadows. Break free and release your inner glow with SkinPen microneedling. If you want to look and feel better, SkinPen microneedling could help.
