If frown lines and crow's feet have you looking and feeling older, it's time you considered botox. Not all neurotoxins are bad, at least not botox in this case. Some toxins, such as the type found in botox, are used by our Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, dermatologist Dr. Sanjiva Goyal at Coastal Dermatology & MedSpa to help improve your appearance.

Botulinum toxin

Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxic protein made by Clostridium botulinum. The neurotoxin, however, is put to good use by our Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, dermatologist at Coastal Dermatology & MedSpa.

Botulinum toxin treats a wide variety of problems and is used to help many individuals regain a rejuvenated look. So there’s nothing you should worry about, especially since the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves of it being used to remove frown lines and crow's feet for men and women between the ages of 18 to 65.

Your doctor injects small doses into the muscles of your face so that those unwanted crow’s feet and wrinkles will finally go away and give you that beautiful, smooth skin you once had. The Botulinum toxin paralyzes the facial muscles by blocking the nerve signals commanding them to contract.

Botox Procedure at Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

This procedure is short, taking approximately 10 minutes, and can last from three to six months, depending on the person. You should refrain from touching and rubbing the treated area for about two to three hours, but, don’t you worry, it only takes three to four days (about 72 hours) for results to appear.
