Thinking about Botox? Millions of people are discovering the benefits of Botox treatments. Botox is a medicine that is injected into muscles to reverse the aging process and treat certain medical conditions. Deerfield Dermatology, located in Deerfield, IL, offers Botox treatment to their patients. Read on to find out how Botox can make you look younger.

Botox can bring back your glow! While traditional spa treatments leave your skin feeling clean and hydrated, Botox rejuvenate your skin from the inside out, making it more elastic and youthful. It tightens and rejuvenizes your skin to help you look and feel years younger. 

2. It can erase your wrinkles

Botox injections work by blocking nerves and weakening certain muscles in the body. Accordingly, it is commonly injected into the face to eliminate wrinkles. Many patients who get Botox treatments, choose to do so because it provides a flawless complexion without the need for surgical enhancement.

Smile lines are types of wrinkles that develop around the sides of your mouth. If you are bothered by the presence of these wrinkles, treatment can improve your appearance with minimal to no downtime! You will be even able to go about your normal routine immediately after your treatment.

4. It can make crow's feet disappear.

Crow’s feet are the fine lines that extend out from the corners of your eyes. They are primarily caused by exposure to sunlight, but smoking can contribute to their formation.

Discover how Botox could help take years off your face.botox

A lot of people are looking for that magic formula or cream that is going to make them look younger. While some over-the-counter products can work over time, often times they don’t offer the results that so many people are looking to achieve. If you want to smooth away certain facial lines and wrinkles then it’s time that you turned to our Deerfield, IL, dermatologists for Botox treatment.

What is Botox?

Botox is injected into certain muscles of the face to temporarily relax the muscles and to prevent them from contracting. Since these muscles won’t be able to contract it will smooth away dynamic wrinkles and lines caused by making facial expressions such as laughing or squinting. These needles contain a purified form of botulinum toxin that when administered by our Deerfield, IL, skin doctor is a safe way to improve the appearance of your skin.

What kinds of wrinkles can Botox treat?

There are certain lines and wrinkles that will respond well to Botox. Take a second to look in the mirror and smile. What lines appear as a result of your smiling? Do you see crow’s feet creeping around your eyes? Do wrinkles line your forehead? If so, these are the wrinkles that will be able to be smoothed away with Botox; however, wrinkles caused by age or sun damage won’t respond to this type of cosmetic treatment.

Is it painful?

Most people hear the word needles and immediately worry that treatment will hurt. We are here to tell you that there is really nothing to worry about. These needles are very thin and easily tolerated by our patients. In fact, most people say they feel nothing more than a slight pinch or burning when the needles are administered. Plus, this discomfort only lasts a couple seconds.

Of course, if you are still a little on edge about getting Botox talk to us about applying a numbing cream over the area prior to treatment.

Will results last forever?

Botox results usually show up about three to four days after treatment and last for about three to four months. If you love the way Botox refreshed your look then you can continue to maintain your results by coming in every few months for follow-up injections.

All About Botox
The use of Botox for skin problems became popular in the early 2000s. Today it is a top treatment offered in dermatology offices across the country. Botox is a brand name that is short for Botulinum toxin, a substance that paralyzes the muscles that cause wrinkles. It is injected at specific locations determined by your dermatologist to give you the best results. It’s estimate that over 6 million Botox treatments are administered every year.

Botox Benefits
Botox is used in a number of medical applications, but most patients request it for cosmetic reasons. Over time, wrinkles and lines can develop on the face due to exposure to the sun, poor skin care and aging.
