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.

If "smile lines" have left your face looking a little wilted, you can perk up with Juvederm.

 Juvederm

Aging gracefully doesn't mean you have to allow wrinkles to take over your face, nor do you need to have surgery that can incur debt and a long recovery time. The Aesthetic Dermatology Center in Vero Beach is pleased to offer Juvederm treatments to their patients. This is a quick, non-invasive way to revitalize the skin and soften deep lines that form between the nose and the corners of the mouth (sometimes referred to as "marionette lines" or "smile lines").

Juvederm's contents

Approved by the FDA in 2006, Juvederm is a filler made from hyaluronan, a naturally-occurring acid found in the tissues of mammals. This acid works in the body to maintain skin and muscle volume and hydration, making it an excellent agent for reducing wrinkles. It binds with collagen and elastin already found beneath the skin's to smooth the lines from the inside out. This produces a subtle, natural but still noticeable difference in your face.

Application

A gel is injected into the areas that need revitalized using a tiny needle. Most patients report very little pain during the procedure, which takes about 30 minutes or less, and results are immediately visible upon completion. While downtime is minimal, there may be some temporary swelling and bruising at the injection sites. These treatments are designed to last from nine months to a year before reapplication will be needed.

Dr. Larry Landsman is a board-certified dermatologist with 20 years of experience in the Miami area. Receiving your Juvederm treatments at a board-certified dermatologist's office ensures that rigorous safety measures are in place and that all of the practitioners have gone through specialized training.
