Find out how Botox smooths away lines and wrinkles for a younger-looking you.

Botox has become one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the US, providing our patients with younger, smoother andBotox wrinkle-free skin. Of course, there are a lot of myths surrounding Botox treatment and what it can do. Our Vero Beach, FL, dermatologist Dr. Larry Landsman wants to dispel those myths so that you can understand whether or not this treatment is right for you.

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic treatment that is made from a purified form of botulinum toxin. When injected into the muscles of the face, this neurotoxin temporarily relaxes the muscles and prevents them from contracting. As a result, dynamic lines and wrinkles are smoothed away. Since Botox targets muscle contractions it works differently from dermal fillers such as Dysport, Juvederm and Restylane.

What cosmetic issues can Botox treat?

Botox is effective at treating crow’s feet (lines around the eyes), smile lines (lines round the mouth and cheeks) and forehead wrinkles. Of course, not all wrinkles can be treated with Botox treatment. The lines and wrinkles that form over time due to collagen loss may not be as responsive to Botox treatment.

If you aren’t sure whether you could benefit from Botox treatment in Vero Beach, FL, take a moment to look at your skin in the mirror. Squint or smile and you’ll see certain lines and wrinkles are more visible. These are the wrinkles that Botox can treat.

What goes into getting Botox treatment?

One reason many people turn to Botox treatment is because it can target lines and wrinkles without needing surgery. Plus, the procedure itself onto takes a couple of minutes and is relatively painless. Injections are easily tolerated, as they only cause a slight stinging or pinching sensation when administered. Of course, you may choose to get a topical anesthesia over the area to numb the area before treatment. Botox also boasts no downtime, so you can go right back to work or your regular activities.

The Aesthetic Dermatology Center of Vero Beach in Vero Beach, FL, offers an array of dermatology services to meet your needs. If you want to find out if you are an ideal candidate for Botox treatment then call our office today.

Do you wish that you could snap your fingers and do away with your unwanted wrinkles or fine lines? Looking younger has become more and more important in recent times. However, as time keeps marching on, so does your natural aging process. Reverse those signs of aging with Botox treatment. Learn more with help from your Vero Beach, FL dermatologist, Dr. Larry Landsman.Botox

What is Botox? 
Botox is an injectable treatment to prevent wrinkles from forming and help eliminate existing wrinkles. Botox achieves this by chemically blocking the muscles from moving, thus preventing wrinkles from forming. This process lasts up to six months, with ongoing follow up sessions required for longer lasting effects.

What can Botox do for me? 
Your Vero Beach doctor injects Botox into the facial muscles to improve various problems, including:

  • smile lines around the mouth
  • crow’s feet near the eyes
  • forehead lines
  • lines between the eyebrows
  • corners of the mouth
  • frown lines

Botox can also be used for other reasons than looking great. Patients who suffer from migraines and experience excessive sweating benefit from Botox injections, along with other medical issues. Your doctor can help you determine the best course of treatment for your situation.

How does Botox work? 
Botox essentially paralyzes the muscles which contract to form wrinkles. This is achieved by blocking the signals from the nerve to the muscle. Since the muscle can no longer move, it allows the wrinkle on top of it to smooth out and prevents the wrinkle from becoming permanent or worse.

The procedure itself takes only a few minutes and has no recovery time. Your Vero Beach doctor uses a tiny needle to inject the Botox formula into your facial muscles. Results are not immediate and take about a week before they are obvious. However, about 92% of patients report that they are happy with their results. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or patients with certain neurological diseases should not use Botox.

The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for Botox is to consult with your dermatologist. For more information on Botox, please contact Dr. Larry Landsman at the Aestheic Dermatology Center of Vero Beach, FL.

Learn about the different issues that Botox in Vero Beach can handle.

Are you interested in seeing what your Vero Beach dermatologist, Dr. Larry Landsman can do to treat those annoying crow’s feet or Botoxforehead wrinkles? Then learn more about Botox and how it could easily smooth out common facial wrinkles.

What is Botox?

Botox is made from a neurotoxin that is produced by the bacterium known as botulinum toxin. When injected into the skin, Botox is used to temporarily paralyze certain muscle groups to decrease the development of future wrinkles and to smooth out the appearance of current ones.

What can Botox be used to treat?

Wondering if Botox could tackle your skin issues? Botox is FDA-approved to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes (also known as crow’s feet), forehead, mouth and chin. However, Botox is being used more and more for non-cosmetic treatments. In fact, there are over 20 different medical conditions that Botox has been known to improve: Some of these conditions include,

Eyelid spasms: Many conditions that cause involuntary muscle contractions like this one can be relaxed with Botox injections.

Strabismus (crossed eyes): One of the most common causes of crossed eyes is a muscular imbalance, which can sometimes be corrected with Botox treatment.

Chronic migraines: Botox may be able to alleviate migraine headaches in those who experience them about 15 days out of the month.

Cervical dystonia: This condition causes the neck muscles to contract automatically, causing the head to turn in awkward and painful positions. Botox can reduce or even eliminate these painful contractions.

Overactive bladder: Botox has also been FDA-approved to treat urinary incontinence due to an overactive bladder.

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating): Botox injections can be administered into the armpits to reduce sweat gland over-activity and reduce persistent and severe sweating.

If you are dealing with any of these health or cosmetic issues and are interested in finding out whether Botox could help then schedule an appointment with your Vero Beach dermatologist.

Ready to get Botox? The treatment is fast and effective. You’ll be in and out of our office in no time. Call Dr. Larry Landsman Dermatology today to schedule your Botox appointment.

Most patients report only feeling a light stinging sensation or tiny prick.
