What is Botox? 
Botox is a cosmetic dermatological treatment which uses a chemical substance to freeze the muscles under the skin. The restricted movement of the muscles allows the skin over them to relax, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even preventing new wrinkles. Since the skin cannot move, it cannot wrinkle, and wrinkles cannot form.

Could I benefit from Botox? 
Doctors suggest Botox for the areas between the eyes between the eyebrows and for crow’s feet on the sides of the eyes. Though normally used for cosmetic purposes, Botox can also accomplish medical tasks as well. Doctors sometimes use Botox to treat migraine headaches and conditions like excessive sweating.

What can I expect during a Botox session? 
Before your Botox session, your doctor will cleanse and clean your facial skin. They will mark the areas of the injections and examine your muscles to ensure the correct placement of the Botox injections. Your doctor will use a super-thin needle to inject the Botox substance into the muscles underneath your skin. You may feel a slight pinch, but should not be in any real pain during your treatment. Afterward, you may notice some bruising or redness which will normally resolve itself on its own in a day or two.

If you're interested in Botox, you're joining the millions who have sought out this safe, minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure to smooth out wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. Before having Botox done, Dr. Jeffrey Heller, a dermatologist at Heller Dermatology Center in Daytona Beach, Florida, encourages his patients to educate themselves about the treatment. If you're wondering about your results Botox with Botox, read on.

What does Botox do for my wrinkles?

Botox, which is made from a naturally-occurring substance, works by temporarily stopping muscular movement in the targeted areas. With the muscle movement restricted, wrinkles and fine lines can no longer emerge. Although each patient will see different results, Botox treatments from your Daytona Beach dermatologist typically last about three to four months, at which time the Botox is absorbed by the body. Many times, patients notice that their wrinkles are less severe even as the effects of Botox subside; this is likely because the muscles have been relaxed for several months.

Am I a good candidate for Botox?

As long as you're in good physical health and aren't currently pregnant or nursing, you'll likely be thrilled with your results from a Botox treatment at your Daytona Beach dermatology center. People who have been diagnosed with neuromuscular disorders such as multiple sclerosis typically do not respond well to cosmetic Botox treatments. Significant facial scarring may also prevent the Botox from adequately spreading. Those who have skin abnormalities - such as eczema or psoriasis - or should disclose this information to our staff prior to any cosmetic treatment to evaluate your condition.

Discussing your expectations for Botox with Dr. Jeffrey Heller will also help determine if Botox is right for you. As Botox results vary with each patient based on skin type and degree of wrinkling, you may be better suited for another cosmetic procedure offered at our Daytona Beach skin care center.
