Your Vero Beach, FL dermatologist can help you achieve a new look for a New Year!

With the New Year underway, everyone is thinking about what they might want to change for the coming year. If you are tired of seeing those frown lines and forehead wrinkles looking back at you every time you stand in front of the mirror, then find out how Botox could give you the refreshed look you crave.

About Botox

Botox has become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the U.S.; however, how much do you really know about it? Botox uses a toxin known a botulinum toxin to temporarily reduce the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.

Botox works by paralyzing the muscles, which stops them from contracting and causing these wrinkles. Over time you will notice a reduction in facial lines and wrinkles. Botox can also be used to lift sagging corners of the mouth, which naturally happens as we age.

While Botox targets wrinkle-producing muscles in the face, it will not affect your nerves or cause numbness. Therefore, it willBotox offer a realistic look that won’t make you look like you’ve had work done.

Botox Treatments

Botox treatment sessions are relatively fast and can often be performed in less than 10 minutes. While injections aren’t always the most comfortable, we can numb the area with a topical anesthesia or with ice before injecting the series of thin needles. Most patients report only feeling a light stinging sensation or tiny prick.

The results from your Botox will appear after a few days, with the maximum effect showing up after about two weeks. If you are looking for a more significant improvement to your appearance after those two weeks you can talk to your Vero Beach, FL dermatologist about additional treatments.
