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.

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!
