While beauty can begin inside, for many people, what they see on the outside when looking into a mirror - wrinkles and other signs of aging - can impact their self-confidence. It’s time to reverse that and boost your confidence with Botox® - one of our most popular treatments here at Feinstein Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery in Delray Beach.
What is Botox®?
Botox® or botulinum toxin type A is an injectable used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), among the 15.7 million cosmetic minimally invasive procedures performed in 2017, Botox® was the most popular. Its numbers seem to grow in popularity each year.
Rejuvenate Your Face
Botox® is the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines look better, less noticeable. The way it works is the injections block nerve impulses, and weakens muscles, relaxes wrinkles and gives the face a rejuvenated look. It is injected under the skin into many areas including the following:
- Crow’s feet area/surrounding the eyes
- Mouth/Frown lines/worry lines
While it’s an injectable, don’t let the thought of a needle alarm you. The only thing you’ll feel is a little pinch.
How Long Will It Take and How Many Injections Will I Receive?
Getting Botox® injections are quick. You’ll notice an improvement with your skin within 24 to 48 hours. The results can last up to four months. Like all of the treatments and procedures we do here at Feinstein Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery, the Botox® treatment is customized and based on the patient’s goals and needs. So, when you come in, we’ll discuss your concerns, along with your aesthetic goals.
Other Uses for Botox®
While Botox® was originally designed for aesthetic purposes, it has evolved and is now used to target other issues, including excessive sweating, called hyperhidrosis. If you suffer from excessive sweating of your palms, feet or any other body part, we can assist you.
When Should I Get Botox®?
Obviously, getting this popular anti-wrinkle treatment is a personal decision, and there’s much to consider. Many women start getting them at the first signs of fine lines and wrinkles, while younger women, more interested in prevention, sometimes start getting injections in their late 20s. Again, it’s a personal decision.
