Wrinkles are a fact of life. Although genetics, sunscreen, and lifestyle can all slow the development of fine lines, wrinkles are inevitable for even the most healthy and diligent of people.
If you are hoping to turn the clock back a few years while still looking natural, botox can help you achieve a youthful complexion discreetly, allowing you to maintain your facial expressions so no one knows that you have received a bit of a boost.
Here at Hecker Dermatology Group in both Tamarac and Pompano Beach, FL, we offer safe and effective botox injections to help you look your best—read on to learn more.
What is botox?
Botox injections contain the chemical acetylcholine, which works by stopping the muscle contractions that create wrinkles. At our Tamarac and Pompano Beach offices, we can target your botox injections to diminish fine lines in various areas of your face. Botox can minimize the appearance of crows feet, laugh lines, creases between your eyebrows, and worry lines on your forehead.
Are botox injections painful?
Botox injections are surprisingly painless and do not require anesthesia. Some individuals may experience discomfort, tenderness, redness, or light bruising, which should diminish quickly. The procedure can be done at our offices in Tamarac and Pompano Beach in just minutes. You can expect to see results within a few days.
How long does botox last?
Depending on the site of your botox, you can expect results to last between three to six months. Botox is not permanent, so you will need to have periodic injections at our Tamarac or Pompano Beach offices to maintain your results.
Is botox safe?
Absolutely! Botox is approved by the Food and Drug Administration as safe for individuals age 18 to 65.
