Although many people would like to see some improvement in aging skin, questions about the products and treatments offered by dermatologists may keep them from getting the very care they need for facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Grayman of Pure Skin Dermatology and Aesthetics wants her patients to feel comfortable and knowledgeable about potential treatment options. Here, we answer common questions about Botox cosmetic injection treatment in Orlando.
Is Botox treatment going to hurt?
Botox is an injectable cosmetic medication. As such, there may be minimal discomfort during treatment.
Dr. Grayman uses a very small needle for treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers, reducing the sensations in skin. Comfort may be further improved with the application of numbing medication, although most people find treatment quite easy to tolerate. Botox treatments take only 10 to 20 minutes to complete, which is often less time than it takes for numbing cream to take effect on the skin. If you are concerned about discomfort, speak with Dr. Grayman about possible solutions.
How soon will I see results?
Botox is great because patients see an immediate reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles after treatment. Beneath the skin, results will gradually improve and top off at about two weeks.
How long do results last?
The effects of Botox treatment will last about four months. Maintenance treatments may be scheduled in advance so that there is no lapse in the outstanding look of skin.
How do I know if I should get Botox or dermal filler treatment?
Beautifully natural results from cosmetic treatment take careful planning. Botox addresses dynamic wrinkles, those formed by years of muscle movements. Other treatments, such as dermal fillers, may not be effective on the same wrinkles treated by Botox, because these substances do not address the same underlying cause of wrinkles. When the time comes for facial rejuvenation, your certified dermatologist is the best person for the job.
