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.
