Dr. Sanjiva Goyal, your Ponte Vedra Beach and Jacksonville, FL, Dermatologist, can help you get the youthful look you want—all it takes is a simple Botox treatment! Read below to learn the details of this aesthetically restorative treatment.
The Basics on Botox
Botox contains a neurotoxin produced by Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium. Although some people may be intimidated by these terms, rest assured that the treatment is extremely safe, as the materials are FDA-approved to be used to eliminate and/or reduce wrinkles and creases on your face.
Contrary to some rumors, Botox doesn't cause patients to lose the capability to show facial expression and, although it is a simple process, solely a licensed professional, like Dr. Sanjiva Goyal at our Ponte Vedra Beach and Jacksonville offices, should administer the treatment. A doctor who understands the sensitivity of Botox and is an expert at working with facial anatomy should be the only one to conduct this treatment.
Your doctor injects the problem areas with Botox, paralyzing the muscles that contract to create wrinkles and creases. In simple terms, muscles secrete a chemical called acetylcholine that causes contraction—botox blocks acetylcholine production, stopping these wrinkle-creating movements.
The most common problem areas people suffer from are crow's feet, frown, worry, and smile lines, and laugh lines. After Botox treatment, you will start to notice smoother skin. Results are actually visible in two to four days and should last about three to four months. Additionally, Botox is a unique cosmetic procedure and has almost no downtime and doesn't take long to be completed. Most people can even go right back to work right after the treatment!
One last great thing about Botox is that it is almost entirely painless!
