What is Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved injectable that treats moderate to severe frown lines across your brow and creases around your eyes (crow’s feet). These aesthetic issues develop naturally with aging and after years of squinting and frowning.  

Botox contains botulinum toxin A, a protein that temporarily paralyzes the muscles responsible for wrinkles and creases in your upper face. As your muscles relax, your skin smooths out, and wrinkles become less noticeable.

Comprehensive Dermatology offers in-office Botox treatments to improve your aesthetic and give you a more youthful appearance. Along with Botox, the providers may also recommend fillers or other non-surgical cosmetic treatments to achieve your desired results.

The team may also recommend Botox injections to treat migraines and hyperhidrosis, a condition that describes excessive sweating. 

When should I consider Botox for anti-aging?

You may be a candidate for Botox therapy if you’re unhappy with your appearance because of wrinkles and creases in your upper face but aren’t ready for surgery.

The Comprehensive Dermatology team completes a skin assessment and discusses your aesthetic goals before recommending Botox. 

If you’re a candidate for Botox therapy, they customize a treatment plan to address only the areas you’re unhappy with and ensure natural-looking, long-lasting results.

What happens during Botox treatments?

Cosmetic Dermatology provides Botox treatments in a comfortable office environment. They follow a custom treatment plan to inject precise amounts of Botox into areas of your upper face.

In the treatment of migraines, Botox injections go into your scalp. If you’re receiving Botox for hyperhidrosis, the team can inject Botox into the sweat glands of your face, hands, and feet.

The number of injections you need depends on the location and severity of your wrinkles. You may experience some mild discomfort during each injection. The team can apply a topical anesthetic beforehand if you’re sensitive to pain.

Soon after your treatment is complete, you can go back to your usual activities without any downtime. While you may see some differences in your appearance right away, it can take 48 hours or longer before your muscles start to relax and up to 30 days to see the full benefit of Botox for wrinkle reduction. 

The results of your treatment can last up to four months before you need maintenance injections. The dermatologists can determine how often you should schedule follow-up visits at your initial appointment.
