Botox® is the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in the United States and is FDA-approved as a fast, safe and effective way to soften facial lines and reduce unwanted wrinkles. When administered correctly by a trained skincare professional, Botox® is an essentially risk-free, non-invasive method to attain smoother skin and lessen the appearance of wrinkles from the face for a younger appearance.
Botox® works by gently relaxing the muscles that form facial wrinkles in the forehead, glabella (between the eyebrows) and on crow’s feet around the eyes. At Gainesville Dermatology, we are experts in treating patients with Botox® quickly, safely and with incredible, youthful results.
QUESTION: How does Botox® work?
ANSWER: Botox® targets the underlying cause of natural frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting. Your Gainesville Dermatology aesthetic professional will inject these muscles with Botox® to temporarily reduce muscle activity. The injection process is quick and easy and takes only about ten minutes. Following treatment, you will immediately be able to resume your normal routine for the day, and you should begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows within 1-2 weeks.
QUESTION: Does Botox® treatment hurt?
ANSWER: Botox® is often described as feeling like a pinch. Ice may be used to numb the treatment area before the procedure is performed. If you are concerned about discomfort, a topical numbing cream may be applied before the procedure.
QUESTION: Does Botox® have any common side effects?
ANSWER: Side effects are very rare. 3% of patients experienced eyelid drooping in frown lines studies and 1% of patients experienced eyelid swelling in crow’s feet studies. Other possible side effects include: dry mouth; discomfort or pain at the injection site; tiredness; headache; neck pain; eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, decreased eyesight and dry eyes; and allergic reactions. Ask your Gainesville Dermatology Aesthetic Center skincare professional for more information about side effects of Botox® or any other concerns you may have about the procedure.
QUESTION: Is it common for men to receive Botox® treatment?
ANSWER: Yes. Botox® is a popular aesthetic procedure for men and works the same way in males as in females. Gainesville Dermatology frequently has male patients who request and receive the treatment. Botox® has also been clinically evaluated in male patients. In clinical studies for moderate to severe frown lines, 17.5% of patients treated with Botox® Cosmetic were men. In the clinical studies for moderate to severe crow’s feet, male patients comprised approximately 10% of patients treated.To read the important safety information, click here.
