The field of dermatology has come a long way since the first textbooks dedicated to the treatment of skin diseases and rashes were botoxpublished in the 1500s. From the beginning of recorded human history, men and women have tried to find ways to preserve and enhance their appearance, and to counteract the effects of aging. And while the fountain of youth may have turned out to be a myth, science has offered 21st century citizens an alternative, with the development of Botox and cosmetic anti-aging treatments.

Refresh Your Look with Botox in Daytona Beach, FL

Botox injections have become a very common and accessible treatment to fill out and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Jeffrey J. Heller, a Daytona Beach, FL, based dermatologist at Heller Dermatology Center, offers Botox treatments to help rejuvenate the skin by easing wrinkles in a few key areas:

  • forehead
  • around the eyes
  • around the mouth

As people age, the skin produces less collagen and becomes drier, becoming saggier, less elastic, and developing wrinkles over time. Botox helps to minimize the most common signs of aging:

  • crow's feet
  • bunny lines (furrow lines between the eyes at the base of the nose)
  • frown, laugh, and worry lines

Additional Applications for Botox

In addition to cosmetic issues, Botox has also been gaining popularity as a treatment for many medical problems like hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), strabismus (crossed eyes), blepharospasm (excessive blinking), and other types of muscle spasms and stiffness.

With just a few treatments, Botox can create a smoother, more youthful looking appearance without the need for more aggressive procedures. The results are subtle and generally last between three and four months, depending on the person.

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.
