Find out more about getting Botox in Vero Beach, FL and how it could improve the look of your skin.

When the New Year hits many people start considering ways to spruce up their look. For some, it’s a new hairstyle while others may vow to lose weight and be healthier in the year to come. But for many they turn to their Vero Beach, FL dermatologist Dr. Larry BotoxLandsman for cosmetic treatments like Botox to refresh their look.

How does Botox work?

When Botox is injected into the skin it blocks the signals that are sent from the nerves to the muscles telling them to contract. Since the muscles are unable to contract, this softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Botox is most often used on crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead wrinkles. Do note that wrinkles caused by sun damage will not respond to Botox treatment.

What is the Botox procedure like?

Getting Botox is extremely fast, only taking a couple minutes to administer. This treatment is often performed without anesthesia, but patients may opt for a topical anesthetic prior to Botox injections to reduce any discomfort. Then a series of thin needles will be injected into certain areas of the skin, depending on the wrinkles you are looking to treat.

After your Botox treatment you will start to see results in about a week (but sometimes as soon as a couple days).

How long will my results last?

Most patients will get to enjoy the results of their Botox treatment for up to six months. As the muscles are able to contract again you will notice that some of your lines and wrinkles will appear, but they will most often appear less severe than they were before your treatment. Fortunately, you can get Botox from your Vero Beach, FL skin doctor Dr. Landsman every few months to help maintain your new look.
