Botox has been used to help skin patients since the late 1980s. Its ability to “freeze” the muscles in the skin to make the face look botoxsmoother and younger has caused a rapid increase in its popularity over the years. Discover how a Botox treatment at The Skin Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL, can benefit your skin and give your confidence a boost. 

What Botox Does
Botox, short for Botulinum Toxin, is a liquid containing a purified neurotoxin. It has been used in a number of medical applications, including reducing hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and alleviating migraines. But the most common application is in dermatology. When injected into the skin, Botox stops the release of a neurotransmitter that causes the muscles to move in the face. When the muscles relax and stop contracting, deep lines and wrinkles begin to disappear.

The Benefits of Botox
If you are trying to avoid invasive plastic surgery while getting results similar to a facelift, Botox may benefit you. Your Fort Lauderdale dermatologist can target wrinkles in the forehead, smile lines, and frown lines. The results are temporary, but they can last several months before another treatment is required. After your appointment, you’ll begin to see results in about a week—just in time for your upcoming affair. Your skin will look and feel smooth to the touch. Botox could make you look years younger after just one session.

A Fast Skin Appointment
You don’t have to worry about spending a lot of time at the dermatologist’s office when you’re getting a Botox treatment. The visit will be very quick—about 15 minutes after sitting down, you can go right back to your normal daily activities. When the effect starts to fade, just call your skin doctor for a new treatment.
