Botox Specialists in Delray Beach, FL
As you age, your face undergoes many changes. The skin begins to lose collagen and elastin, and becomes drier and thinner, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. But you can fight back. Botox® is an excellent treatment to battle the signs of aging and get a more youthful appearance. Botox® is one of our many specialties, here at Feinstein Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery in Delray Beach.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is made from Botulinum toxin A, a purified protein which blocks nerve impulses or temporarily paralyzes muscle activity. This temporarily reduces or eliminates facial fine lines and wrinkles, giving the face a rejuvenated look. Botox®, which is a brand name along with two other brands - Dysport and Xeomin, are very popular injectables to reduce the fine lines and wrinkles.
How Are Botox® Injections Used?
The most commonly treated areas are:
- Frown lines
- Horizontal forehead creases
- Crow's feet (lines on the outside corners of the eyes)
- Lip lines/corners of the mouth/gummy smile
- Chin (skin dimpling)/lines on the neck
- Jawline (softens a square jawline)
How Effective is Botox®?
Results are not instant, but you will notice an improvement within days. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women surveyed rated the improvement in the appearance of frown lines between their brows as moderate to better, one month after treatment. The results can last up to six months. You can extend your results by regularly getting follow-up injections. Botox® is considered safe and effective for smoothing facial lines.
What Should I Expect During and After the Treatment?
While it doesn't require anesthesia, if desired, the doctor will numb the area with either topical anesthesia or another method of anesthesia. The needles used for Botox® injections are very small, so pain is minimal. The procedure itself involves the doctor injecting tiny amounts of the liquid into your skin. The number of units you will need depends on the areas being targeted. And like any other treatment or procedure we perform here, everything is tailored to our patients. The number of injections used is customized based on the patient’s goals and needs. The process is fairly quick and you can resume most of your normal activities right afterward.
Who Makes a Good Candidate for Botox®?
It helps to be in overall good health. When you come in for your consultation, we can discuss your medical history, along with your expectations and aesthetic goals. Both men and women are good candidates for Botox® injections.
What Are the Other Uses for Botox®?
While Botox® is primarily used for cosmetics reasons, doctors also use it to help treat some medical conditions, including excessive sweating in the palms of the hands and soles of the feet, chronic migraines, muscular disorders, overactive bladder, and eye disorders such as lazy eye and eye twitching.
