What your dermatologist in Ponte Vedra Beach and Jacksonville, FL wants you to know
The normal aging process changes your body and your face! Your skin loses elasticity and moisture which eventually causes small wrinklesbotox and frown lines. Fortunately, you can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with Botox!

Dr. Sanjiva Goyal at Coastal Dermatology & MedSpa wants to share how Botox can help you look younger. He has two convenient office locations in Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida to take care of your skincare needs.

So, what is Botox? Botox is an injectable material produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It has the amazing ability to temporarily “freeze” or paralyze muscles and nerves, making your skin appear smooth and wrinkle-free.

Botox is very effective in reducing the appearance of:

  • Crow’s feet, showing up at the corners of your eyes
  • Furrows, those annoying frown lines in your forehead
  • Glabella, the unattractive lines between your eyebrows

Botox treatment involves injecting small amounts of material into your skin using a tiny, ultra-thin needle. Treatment is tolerated well. The number of injections will vary depending on the number of areas treated.

People love Botox treatment because there is no downtime, so you can go back to enjoying your day immediately after treatment. You will enjoy the rejuvenating effects of your Botox treatment up to 3-6 months.

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.

Are you ready to find out if Botox is the right treatment for you? Do you have questions about getting Botox? Then it’s time you called Coastal Dermatology & Medspa for your free consultation. We offer two convenient locations in Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. Call one of our offices today!

Are you ready to find out if Botox is the right cosmetic treatment for you?botox

Whenever you smile do you notice pesky wrinkles across your face? While some people are proud of the lines and wrinkles they have, most people find them to be a dead giveaway of their age. If you want to smooth away these wrinkles, our Ponte Vedra Beach and Jacksonville, FL, dermatologist, Dr. Sanjiva Goyal, has just the cosmetic treatment you’ve been looking for.

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injection that uses a purified form of botulinum toxin A. When injected into the skin, this toxin works to block messages sent to the muscles that tell them to contract. As a result, the muscles are temporarily paralyzed, causing lines and wrinkles in that area to soften. Botox has been a great option for many people in Ponte Vedra Beach and Jacksonville looking to treat mild-to-severe dynamic facial wrinkles.

What are the benefits of choosing Botox?

There are many advantages to choosing Botox over other cosmetic treatments including:

Efficiency: Most people don’t have a lot of time in their schedules to sit in the office for hours on end or to continue coming back regularly. With Botox, you can come into our office for treatment and leave just a few minutes later. Administering Botox injections is quick and easy.

Practically Painless: When people hear the word “needles” they often feel a bit anxious about getting this procedure, but these needles aren’t anything like the needles you get for immunizations. These needles are much thinner and less invasive, which means that people often don’t feel much more than a slight pinch when the needles enter the skin. Plus, we can apply a topical anesthetic to the skin prior to treatment if the idea of needles still has you nervous.

No Recovery Time: Again, we know you have a busy life, and the last thing you want to do is be held up in bed for a week or more. While some cosmetic treatments offer more drastic results, they also come with a rather extensive recovery time. If you can’t take time away from work but still want to smooth away wrinkles, then Botox may be your best option.

Follow-up Treatments: Do you just love your new results? Wish they could last forever? While it’s true that Botox is only temporary (usually lasting up to 6 months), you can continue to get follow-up injections every few months to keep your results looking fresh and new.

Coastal Dermatology & Medspa in Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, is dedicated to giving you the more youthful skin you want no matter your age. If you are ready to find out if Botox is right for you, call our office today!

Forehead wrinkles. Crows feet. Frown lines. Dynamic wrinkles often develop from repetitive facial expression, causing these fine lines to appear visible even when the face is totally relaxed.

Wrinkles are a normal part of the aging process. The most common contributors to premature aging of the skin include genetics, spending too much time in the sun, smoking and poor diet.  Avoiding or limiting these activities can help prevent and lessen the effects of wrinkles.

Not all wrinkles can be avoided, and when quick, dramatic results are desired, Botox® may be a viable solution for removing wrinkles on the face caused by daily muscle contraction of your natural facial expressions. Botox® works by temporarily blocking nerve impulses, which reduces the movement of those particular muscles. With less movement, the skin surface is gradually smoothed, the lines begin to fade, and your natural vibrant skin strengthens and returns.  

During treatment, very low doses of Botox® are administered by way of small injections. FDA-approved, Botox® is a safe and minimally invasive treatment. It takes just a few minutes and can last about 3-4 months. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated as directed by your dermatologist. 

If you are interested in learning more about Botox ® cosmetic treatments, contact our office and we will be happy to answer your questions.  Younger looking skin is easily attainable with the help of your dermatologist!

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.

For more information on our Botox procedure or to schedule and appointment, please call us at either of our two offices: Jacksonville, FL (904) 727-9123 or Ponte Vedra Beach, FL (904) 567-1050. It’s time you regained that youthful glow once more.
