Can Orlando patients use Botox for wrinkle reduction?

The physical aspects of aging can be hard on the self-esteem of both men and women. Folds and wrinkles become more pronounced and distinguished, leaving us with a reflection in the mirror that we no longer recognize. A skilled dermatologist like Dr. Grayman of Pure Skin Dermatology can help restore youthfulness to the face. With cosmetic injectable fillers, she is able to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and achieve overall facial rejuvenation.

We offer two distinct types of fillers at Pure Skin Dermatology: dermal fillers and medical injectables.

Dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvéderm work by adding volume to the face. They are made of hyaluronic acid, which is produced naturally in the body. When injected into wrinkles and folds, they plump the face and smooth out the skin.

Medical injectables like Botox work differently. Comprised of botulinum toxins, they cause the muscles of the face to relax, temporarily reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Over time, the lines between our eyebrows and on the forehead can become severe from years of repeated facial expressions. When Botox is injected into the muscle, it is no longer able to contract and smooths out stubborn wrinkles on the face. Patients are left with a youthful and relaxed appearance. Botox treatments typically last three to four months, patients are encouraged to schedule follow-up sessions if they are interested in maintaining results long term.

Botox is not used to address wrinkles over the entire face because of the way it works. Muscles that contract to cause wrinkles are best suited for Botox. If you want to address other areas of the face, specifically around the mouth, you may want to consider dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane. Many patients will receive them in conjunction with Botox for a complete facial makeover. They can often be done on the same day.

Dr. Grayman offers her patients a wide array of treatments to reverse the signs of aging and improve their skin.
