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.
