Just one Botox treatment at Comprehensive Dermatology & Facial Plastic Surgery in Winter Park, Florida can quickly and comfortably renew your appearance. Here's how.

As an adult, the creases and lines that may have developed on your face probably aren't relevant to your age or how you feel, so you Botoxmight be thinking about a cosmetic treatment to help fix the "crow's feet" around the eyes or "frown lines" between your eyebrows. These small but noticeable lines are easily eradicated with Botox, one of the most popular cosmetic treatments offered by Dr. Erica Mailler at Comprehensive Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, a dermatological practice in Winter Park, Florida.

How Botox works

Botox, a cosmetic treatment made from purified botulinum toxin, is a safe and effective way to reduce the wrinkles and fine lines that form near the eyes and forehead. This naturally-occurring protein is introduced into your muscles by your Winter Park dermatologists, who carefully use a tiny needle to place Botox right under your skin. Botox works by stopping the targeted muscles from moving, the action of which causes wrinkles to form through normal activities such as chewing, speaking, smiling or even blinking. With the movements restricted, however, wrinkles diminish. The final results are seen within a few days' time and Botox's effects typically last between three and four months.

Great results

Botox has been used as a cosmetic enhancement for several decades, making it safe, inexpensive, and minimally invasive. Surgery can be very costly and difficult to recover from, but Botox has virtually no downtime associated with it and it is a very affordable and effective procedure at your Winter Park dermatologist's office. The results are also subtle, leaving patients with younger-looking, refreshed skin that is noticeable without being obvious.
