Take years off your face and boost your confidence with Botox from our Daytona Beach office

It’s a fact of life that we are all going to get older; however, this doesn’t necessarily mean that our appearance has to give away our age. If you want to refresh your appearance but you’re just not ready to turn to cosmetic surgery to treat lines and wrinkles, our Daytona Beach, FL, dermatologist, Dr. Jeffrey Heller, can give you the results you want with Botox.

How does Botox work?

This injectable treatment administers a neurotoxin, known as botulinum toxin A, into specific muscle groups of the face. This neurotoxin alters messages from the brain to the muscles that tell the muscles to contract. As a result, Botox is able to temporarily prevent muscle contractions, which also smooths away dynamic lines and wrinkles of the face.

What wrinkles respond best to Botox?

Botox is ideal for anyone who is looking to smooth away any expression lines. This means any lines and wrinkles that stand out when you smile or squint can be treated with Botox. Botox is FDA approved to treat moderate to severe,

  • Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
  • Furrow lines (wrinkles between the browns)
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Frown lines (lines around the mouth and nose)

While most people assume that people in their 40s and 50s are more likely to turn to undergo Botox, there are many patients in their 20s and 30s that also use this treatment to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming.

How long does it take to get Botox?

To get Botox, our dermatologist will simply administer a series of thin needles into the muscles of the face. This is a quick, easy, and relatively painless experience. Administering Botox only takes about 5-10 minutes. Plus, you can return to work or your daily routine immediately after treatment.

How quickly will I see results?

It will take about 3-4 days after treatment to notice results, with full results appearing within one week. Botox results last up to four months; however, if you love your new appearance you can get maintenance Botox treatments every few months to keep your results fresher for longer.

Do you still have acne, even though you've tried every product in the drugstore? Here at the Port Orange and Daytona Beach, FL, offices of your dermatologist, Dr. Jeffrey Heller, we offer treatment that will help clear your skin.

 

5 Treatments That Can Reduce Acne Flareups

Acne affects as many as 50 million Americans every year, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Although the skin condition is particularly common during the teenage years, plenty of adults struggle with acne too. When over-the-counter acne preparations aren't effective, your Port Orange and Daytona Beach skin doctor may recommend one of these approaches:

  • Applying Prescription-Strength Topical Medication to Your Face: Pimples form when natural skin oils and debris clog your pores. Keeping your pores clear offers a simple way to prevent future breakouts. Topical medications like tretinoin, adapalene and tazarotene speed skin cell turnover and prevent your pores from becoming blocked.
  • Using Antibiotics: If topical medication isn't working quite as well as you had hoped, your dermatologist may recommend adding a topical or oral antibiotic to your treatment regimen. Antibiotics kill the p. acnes bacteria that play a crucial role in the formation of acne lesions.
  • Taking Oral Contraceptives: If you're a woman, you may have noticed that your acne worsens at the same time every month. Taking oral contraceptives not only prevents pregnancy, but it may also help keep your acne under control. The medication reduces the production of sebum, an oily substance that keeps your skin moist and subtle. An excessive amount of sebum can clog your pores, causing acne.
  • Trying a Chemical Peel or Microdermabrasion: These treatments remove the outer layers of the skin where acne lesions form. They can also minimize the appearance of shallow acne scars.
  • Using Light Therapy: Blue light therapy offers an innovative way to reduce acne. During the treatment, your dermatologist uses a small, handheld device to deliver short pulses of blue light to your face. The light kills p. acne bacteria and shrinks your oil glands. Blue light therapy may be combined with red light therapy. Exposure to red light promotes healing and decreases acne scars.
