Botox® Injections & Cosmetic Botox Injections in the Florida Keys
What is Botox?
As we age, it is very common to experience wrinkling, especially around the eyes, forehead, or mouth. This is because our repeated facial expressions and day-to-day movements (smiling, frowning, squinting, etc.) cause indentations in the skin over time. This is a normal part of the skin’s aging process; however, many dislike the look of wrinkles. Botox is a popular non-surgical treatment option that can combat unwanted wrinkles and other signs of aging. At Pruett Dermatology, we are well-versed in Botox treatment and have years of successful treatment stories using Botox facial rejuvenation to help our clients look and feel years younger.
Why are Botox fillers used?
Botox cosmetic facial injections are usually used to target visible signs of aging in the upper face. You may be recommended for Botox injections at Pruett Dermatology if you are experiencing any of the following signs of facial aging:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet (wrinkles on both sides of the eyes)
- Neck wrinkles
- Around the mouth wrinkles
- Botox is also sometimes used for non-cosmetic conditions, like TMJ, migraine headaches, or muscle contractures. To learn more about the other conditions treatable using Botox, consult your physician.
What does Botox treatment at Pruett Dermatology involve?
Preparing for Botox Injections
Before your Botox treatment, be sure to ask your dermatologist at Pruett Dermatology if you have any questions or concerns about your procedure. You’ll be given all of the information you need for a smooth and simple treatment.
Can I take Advil or Tylenol before Botox treatments?
Some medications could increase the chances that your skin will bruise during Botox treatments. Always check with your physician before taking any medications or supplements prior to your treatment.
During Botox Injections
Botox treatment is quick and easy at Pruett Dermatology. Botox sessions involve injecting a medical solution called botulinum toxin just below your skin’s surface. The substance relaxes your facial muscles by preventing stimulation of the nearby nerves. This causes a softening of wrinkles and lines in your face.
How long does it take to recover from Botox injections?
Your Botox results will most likely not be fully apparent at the time of your appointment. Instead, over the next week or two, you’ll notice a gradual onset of your results. Once they are in full-effect, you may see dramatic improvements that can last for several months.
Can I repeat Botox treatments?
Botox injection treatments can be repeated at Pruett Dermatology in order to maintain lasting, more youthful looking skin. Speak with our Botox professionals in Florida to learn more about what to expect from your Botox procedure.
How often can I get Botox?
It is possible to have Botox treatments every 3-4 months, but treatment recommendations may vary depending on your personal needs and results. Ask one of our Botox professionals at Pruett Dermatology what is right for your situation.
