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.
