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.

Are you ready to get Botox treatment in Deerfield, IL? If so, then the next step is to find out if you are the ideal candidate for this cosmetic treatment. Call Deerfield Dermatology Associates today.

Botox is a dermatological treatment that is used to create smoother, younger looking skin. It is commonly requested by patients who are botoxconcerned about the effects of sun damage and aging on their skin, namely the face. Discover the benefits of Botox, a treatment that you can have administered at Deerfield Dermatology in Deerfield, IL.

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. Laughing, squinting and other facial expressions can also cause lines to form after a while. If you’re looking for a solution to wrinkles, consider the benefits of Botox in advance of your consultation appointment in Deerfield:

- Minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, smile lines and crow’s feet.
- Fast results (see a noticeable difference in about 72 hours).
- Minimally invasive procedure compared to plastic surgery.
- Over time with repeated treatments, lines and wrinkles may permanent relax.

Getting Botox Injections
Expect your Botox visit to be relatively short—the procedure usually takes only a few minutes to complete and then you can go home. You’ll sit back and relax while your dermatologist carefully administers the injections. Depending on your cosmetic concern, you may have to schedule several visits to have Botox injections.

Are you ready to find out what dermal fillers could do for your skin?

While aging is something that we can’t escape, it doesn’t mean our face needs to give away how old we are. And our Deerfield, IL dermal fillersdermatologists have the answer you’ve been looking for to give your skin that more youthful appearance without the need for invasive cosmetic dermatology.

What problems do dermal fillers address?

Dermal fillers are great for smoothing out lines and folds around the nose and mouth (sometimes referred to as “laugh lines”). They can also give lips more fullness, and improve skin’s volume to give you a more youthful appearance. And because dermal fillers can increase volume, it’s also great for reducing the appearance of superficial scars caused by acne or chicken pox.

How do they work?

Dermal fillers can be made from either synthetic or natural material, which our Deerfield skin doctor will inject into the skin to target skin depressions, folds and wrinkles.

While many people believe Botox is a dermal filler because it is also injected into the skin, the two treatments work a bit differently. Botox actually temporarily stops muscles from contracting to reduce the appearance of wrinkles while dermal fillers help to smooth out and plump certain areas of the skin without affecting the muscles.

When will I see results and how long will they last?

This will depend on the type of dermal filler you choose, but results can be immediate or it can take up to a week for the filler to take full effect. Your results can also last anywhere from six months to two years, depending on which dermal filler you get. Plus, you can always choose to get another quick treatment in a few months to help maintain your results for longer.

If you’ve been considering getting dermal fillers in Deerfield, IL, it’s time you talked to our dermatologist to find out which type is right for you. Call Deerfield Dermatology Associates today to schedule your consultation.
