Botox® in Delray Beach, FL
For dealing with noticeable signs of aging Botox has become one of the most well known and trusted treatments on the market. If you are interested in the procedure you don't need to look far, Botox from your trusted local Delray Beach, FL, board certified dermatologists of Feinstein Dermatology, can be one of the best ways to improve the way you look and feel about yourself.
How Botox Works
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. Botox® Cosmetic uses a safe and purified form of the botulinum toxin which is used to temporarily stop the muscles from contracting, this can prevent new wrinkles and smooths out current ones.
How It's Applied
During the procedure, your Delray Beach, FL, dermatologist injects Botox using a very thin needle. The treatment is fast, taking only about 10 minutes and it is performed in the comfort of our office. Anesthesia is not usually required but your doctor may offer topical anesthetic in the form of a numbing cream, while some numb the area simply by using ice. There is little to no downtime needed, which often means you can return to your daily activities after treatment. Although your doctor may warn against physical activity in the hours following the procedure.
What You Can Expect
Botox can be used to treat skin imperfections like worry lines, laugh and smile lines, crow's feet, and forehead wrinkles, among others. Patients often see results as soon as a few days after the procedure, and these results can last from about 4 to 6 months.
