Some dermatological patients assume that the only way they can get rid of unwanted wrinkles, lines, and signs of aging is to go under the knife for a facelift. But Botox could be the best option for both your skin, your schedule, and your lifestyle. There’s no need for an invasive procedure and the results begin to show up after just a few days.

Common Skin Issues
Patients often request Botox as a method of combating the signs of aging. A study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) found that it tops the list of minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures. There are a number of skin issues that can make you look older, including scars, hyperpigmentation, and pock marks, but wrinkles and lines are the most common cause. Most skin issues, including wrinkling, is caused by too much exposure to the sun’s harsh UV rays over time or the facial expressions you use on a daily basis. Botox is one of the most effective ways to reduce the appearance of lines on the face.
Why Patients Prefer Botox
Plastic surgery restores the more youthful appearance of your skin by pulling, tightening, and removing fatty tissue, but it requires surgery. Botox only requires a few injections in specific areas of your face (namely around the eyes, forehead, and mouth). You do not have to submit to deep sleep sedation for this procedure or bring a friend to your appointment to drive you home. Also, no healing period is necessary besides taking it easy for the rest of the day after the appointment with your Fort Lauderdale, FL dermatologist.
Your Botox Results
After a Botox session, you’ll see the full results you’re seeking after a few days: smooth, supple, wrinkle-free skin. The smile and laugh lines around your mouth, wrinkles in the forehead and frown lines will go away for at least three months, sometimes longer, and you can choose to redo the Botox treatment at that time.
