Cosmetic procedures are readily available to help you look great and feel even better. However, understanding your options can help you make the most informed and knowledgeable decision for the best dermatological treatment for you and your complexion. Botox is a common choice for people who wish to look younger and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Find out more about Botox and what it can do for you with Dr. Jeffrey Heller at his practice locations in Daytona Beach and Port Orange, FL.
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.
