Isn’t it time you took years off your skin and felt confident in your appearance?botox

Are you sick and tired of always looking sick and tired? We know that as we age, sometimes the lines and wrinkles that form on our face can often make us look exhausted, worn out and unhappy. If you want to refresh your appearance but don’t want to turn to cosmetic surgery to do it, our Ponte Vedra Beach and Jacksonville, FL, dermatologist, Dr. Sanjiva Goyal, has just the simple and non-invasive solution to improve the look and feel of your skin.

What is Botox?

Botox is a simple cosmetic procedure that injects a purified form of botulinum toxin into the muscles of the face to prevent them from contracting. Once Botox has been injected into the muscles it stops the signals from the nerves to the muscles that tell the muscles to contract. Since the muscles aren’t able to contract, it helps to smooth away certain lines and wrinkles.

What can Botox do for my appearance?

Botox can be a great solution for anyone who is looking to take years off their appearance without the need for invasive measures. Our Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach skin doctor understands that not everyone is ready to take the plunge into getting cosmetic surgery; however, by choosing non-invasive measures like Botox we can easily give you amazing results without downtime. So, what wrinkles can Botox treat?

Botox works by reducing the appearance of, and sometimes even eliminating dynamic lines and wrinkles. These lines are the ones that appear when you make facial expressions like smiling, frowning or squinting. If you have crow’s feet, lines on your forehead, or around the nose or mouth then Botox may be able to help you.

What does getting Botox entail?

This is a fairly simple procedure that only takes a few minutes to complete. It’s so fast that people often choose to get it done during their lunch break. Plus, there is absolutely no recovery time with this procedure. You can immediately go back to your daily routine after getting Botox.

The needles used are very thin so you won’t feel anything more than a slight pinch when the needle enters the skin. Of course, if you are a bit squeamish about needles just let us know and we can apply a numbing cream to the area first so you won’t feel anything.

When will I see results? How long do results last?

It will take a couple of days for you to see the full results of your treatment. Also, results are only temporary, lasting for about 6 months. Luckily, if you are happy with your results you can continue to get Botox treatments to refresh your look.
