Should I Consider Botox? The benefits of Botox.

You are wondering if you should consider Botox. You have a few wrinkles and you don’t like what you see. The truth is Botox can treat a botoxnumber of issues, and not just cosmetic ones. Botox has been used to treat certain neurological and physical conditions including migraines, tension headaches and spasms in your face or eyelids; however, when most people think of Botox, they think of age-related skin issues. The dermatologists of Comprehensive Dermatology and Facial Plastic Surgery in Winter Park, Florida will help you discover the many benefits and uses of Botox.

You should consider Botox if you want to reduce the appearance of:

  • Smile lines around your mouth and nose
  • Lines between your eyebrows, called glabella
  • Frown lines in your forehead, called furrows
  • Crow’s feet around your eyes

Botox is an injectable solution available only by prescription, and should be administered by a dermatologist. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles and nerves around the injection site. Your dermatologist at Comprehensive Dermatology and Facial Plastic Surgery will use a tiny needle to inject Botox into your skin. The amount of injections you need will depend on which areas you want to treat.

The Botox injections are usually well-tolerated and your dermatologist can numb the area first with medicated spray or cream if you wish. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities, but remember not to rub the area injected because it may spread the Botox to unwanted areas.

Botox effects can last anywhere from a few months to a year, depending on the individual and the area injected. Your cost for Botox treatments will depend on your individual case and the number of injections you need.

You should consider Botox if you have some skin issues you don’t like.
