We all would like to find that magical solution that would keep us looking young forever. Of course, while we certainly haven’t found the Fountain of Youth just yet, advancements in cosmetic dermatology are coming impressively close. If you are looking for a fast, simple, and non-invasive way to smooth away facial lines and wrinkles, talk with our dermatologist about whether Botox could give you the results you want.

What is Botox?

Botox is a purified, medical-grade neurotoxin that is injected directly into muscle groups of the face. When Botox is injected into the muscles, it reduces the brain-sent signals that cause the muscles to contract. As a result, this cosmetic treatment prevents muscle contractions, thus temporarily reducing the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles.

Botox can be used to smooth away wrinkles between the brows, on the foreheads, around the eyes (crow’s feet), and the mouth (“laugh lines”). In fact, any lines or wrinkles that are accentuated when you frown or smile can often be treated with Botox.

What is it like to get Botox treatment?

Botox is non-invasive and doesn’t require surgery or other aggressive techniques. It only takes our skin doctor a couple of minutes to administer Botox, and these thin needles are well-tolerated by our patients.

Additionally, there is absolutely no downtime associated with receiving Botox, allowing many patients to come in for treatment and return right back to work and their daily routine immediately after. It only takes about 10 minutes to administer Botox and side effects are minimal.

What kind of results should I expect with Botox?

You won’t see results immediately, as it will take the body time to respond to treatment. Most people will see results within 3-4 days and results can last anywhere from 4-6 months. If you’re happy with your results and wish they would last longer, then you can talk with your cosmetic dermatologist about how often you should come in for maintenance treatments.

Whether you have questions about receiving Botox treatment or if you want to find out if you are the ideal candidate for treatment, don’t hesitate to call your dermatologist’s office today to schedule a consultation.

Perhaps you look in the mirror and wish that you could turn back time because of unsightly wrinkles on your face or frustrating forehead lines. However, instead of speaking negatively about yourself, you should take action to improve your appearance with Botox! Here at Coastal Dermatology & Med Spa, our dermatologist will help you enjoy the full benefits of this popular cosmetic treatment. With offices in both Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, our dermatologist, Dr. Sanjiva Goyal, can help make those imperfections less obvious, helping to improve both your confidence and self-esteem throughout the process!
 
How Botox Improves Your Appearance
Botox relaxes your facial muscles and smooths out wrinkles. Dermatologists often apply Botox in wrinkle-prone areas of the face, such as frown lines, and crow's feet. Because Botox prevents the muscles in these areas from contracting, they cannot move, giving you a more youthful and natural-looking appearance.
 
What Happens During You Botox Appointment
After evaluating the condition of your skin and deciding to move forward with the procedure, our providers will safely and gently inject the Botox solution into the identified treatment areas. It typically takes 24-72 hours to take effect, but once the procedure is complete, you'll be free to carry on with your day as usual. In 14 days, you will notice the full result of treatment.

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!

The Benefits of Botox

Want to erase the signs of aging this year? Millions of men and women are discovering the benefits of BOTOX treatments. BOTOX is a medicine that is injected into muscles to erase the signs of aging and treat certain conditions. Dermatologists are physicians who are trained in diagnosing and treating conditions and diseases of the skin. BOTOX is available from dermatologists. Read on to learn about the benefits of BOTOX.

1. It rejuvenates the skin.

BOTOX treatment is an excellent adjunct for rejuvenation of the face. BOTOX should be considered in addition to laser therapy, skin care, chemical peels, and resurfacing to improve the appearance of the face. It tightens and rejuvenizes your skin to help you look and feel younger. 

2. It can remove your wrinkles.

BOTOX works by blocking nerve impulses that cause muscles to contract and cause wrinkles. It's commonly injected into the face to eliminate wrinkles. Many patients who get BOTOX treatments can experience an improved complexion without the need for surgery. 

3. It can erase smile lines.

For most people, nasolabial folds— also known as smile lines— are nothing to smile about. Smile lines are fine lines that primarily develop around the sides of your mouth. They are more noticeable when you laugh or smile. BOTOX can reduce the appearance of smile lines. BOTOX can improve your look with minimal to no downtime. You will be able to go about your normal routine immediately after your treatment.

4. It can make crow's feet disappear.

Before you know it, crow's feet can leave you looking older than you feel. Crow’s feet are the lines that appear around the eyes. BOTOX is injected into crow’s feet with a tiny needle to improve the skin’s appearance. You may begin to notice the results of your BOTOX treatment within a few days, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Ready for an anti-aging makeover? Say yes to BOTOX! Find a dermatologist near you and schedule a consultation. BOTOX has helped many people enhance their appearance, giving them more self-confidence and improving their lives. And it will do the same for you.
