Say hello to a brand new decade and a brand new you with Botox.

Aging isn’t always kind when it comes to physical appearance, and unfortunately, no one can avoid it. If you’re not quite ready to embrace those lines and wrinkles, that’s okay. Our Fort Lauderdale, FL, dermatologists can help smooth away those early signs of aging with the help of Botox.

So, you want to get Botox? This cosmetic injectable has been a popular way to smooth away forehead wrinkles, smile lines as well as frown lines in both men and women. It works by injecting a purified form of botulinum toxin into the muscles of the face. By preventing muscle contractions in the face, this treatment can reduce the appearance of,

  • Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
  • Laugh lines (lines around the nose and mouth)
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Wrinkles and lines between the brows

The lines and wrinkles that appear whenever you smile or make other facial expressions are the ones that will respond to Botox.

Before Getting Botox

First, one of our Fort Lauderdale, FL, cosmetic dermatologists will need to sit down with you to discuss your treatment goals. It’s important to fully understand the treatment process and the results you will and won’t be able to get with Botox to determine if this is truly the best option for you.

Getting Botox

Administering Botox only takes a couple of minutes and is relatively painless. Most patients feel nothing more than a slight pinch that goes away in a matter of seconds. Of course, patients may ask for a topical anesthetic before treatment to numb the area.

After Botox Treatment

Results will appear within 3-4 days after getting Botox and can last up to 3 to 4 months.

No surgery, no recovery time…just a brand new you. If you want to learn more about Botox and whether it’s the right treatment for you then call Skin Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL, today at (954) 500-7546.

We all would like to find that magical solution that would keep us looking young forever. Of course, while we certainly haven’t found the Fountain of Youth just yet, advancements in cosmetic dermatology are coming impressively close. If you are looking for a fast, simple, and non-invasive way to smooth away facial lines and wrinkles, talk with our dermatologist about whether Botox could give you the results you want.

What is Botox?

Botox is a purified, medical-grade neurotoxin that is injected directly into muscle groups of the face. When Botox is injected into the muscles, it reduces the brain-sent signals that cause the muscles to contract. As a result, this cosmetic treatment prevents muscle contractions, thus temporarily reducing the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles.

Botox can be used to smooth away wrinkles between the brows, on the foreheads, around the eyes (crow’s feet), and the mouth (“laugh lines”). In fact, any lines or wrinkles that are accentuated when you frown or smile can often be treated with Botox.

What is it like to get Botox treatment?

Botox is non-invasive and doesn’t require surgery or other aggressive techniques. It only takes our skin doctor a couple of minutes to administer Botox, and these thin needles are well-tolerated by our patients.

Additionally, there is absolutely no downtime associated with receiving Botox, allowing many patients to come in for treatment and return right back to work and their daily routine immediately after. It only takes about 10 minutes to administer Botox and side effects are minimal.

What kind of results should I expect with Botox?

You won’t see results immediately, as it will take the body time to respond to treatment. Most people will see results within 3-4 days and results can last anywhere from 4-6 months. If you’re happy with your results and wish they would last longer, then you can talk with your cosmetic dermatologist about how often you should come in for maintenance treatments.

Whether you have questions about receiving Botox treatment or if you want to find out if you are the ideal candidate for treatment, don’t hesitate to call your dermatologist’s office today to schedule a consultation.

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 Botoxknife 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. Learn more when you schedule a skin consultation at the Skin Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

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.

Botox is an effective and simple treatment for patients who want to diminish the unwanted wrinkles and lines that have appeared on their skin over the years. Call (954) 500-SKIN (7546) today to schedule a consultation visit at the Skin Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
