To help in aging gracefully and to avoid facial wrinkles and lines from occurring on the top portion of the face, Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL is pleased to offer Botox to area individuals. This injectable treatment offers outstanding results and is very common among both women and men.
Botox can make a significant improvement to dynamic lines, which are made from expressive movement with the contracting muscles on the forehead and around the eyes. These facial lines go away when the face is relaxed, but dynamic folds can still remain. This muscle relaxer is a clean and purified strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily freezes the movements of the facial muscle. To soften these static wrinkles, Botox is carefully injected to smooth the skin. Botox injections are most commonly administered by a licensed injector (under the guidance of our lead physician and founder, Dr. Roberto Garcia) between the eyebrows, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and across the forehead.
Botox injections are great for patients who wish to soften the visible look of dynamic lines and wrinkles on their upper face without surgery. Botox can also be used as a preventive anti-aging treatment even if you do not show signs of aging — keep in mind how often you find yourself making facial expressions. It's a terrific, noninvasive treatment if you are frustrated by forehead wrinkles or parallel lines between the brows. It is also a solution for lines around the eyes. If you experience more severe and deeper lines, a filler product may be more suitable.
In addition, if you are over the age of 50 with sagging skin and widespread wrinkles, you may be considered for facelift surgery. This delivers a more impactful result and it is longer-lasting. Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery offers eyelid surgeries, facelifts, and brow lifts as effective options. Ideal candidates may be interested in receiving Botox injections to improve the appearance of their:
Botox injections can help enhance their natural beauty and give patients the youthful appearance they want with virtually no downtime and months of lasting results. Dr. Garcia and his team at Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery individualize each patient's treatment plan so that each in-office, non-invasive, nearly painless injection treatment session is right for them.
Apart from addressing moderate to severe forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown lines, botulism toxin can be used to improve many health conditions, like:
Treatments are also nearly immediate, with Jacksonville Botox patients seeing a difference within a few hours of receiving injections and final results appearing up to 30 days later. The best part is that there is little to no downtime, and you can resume your daily routine almost immediately after leaving our office.
Botox treatments are available as an outpatient procedure conveniently at Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery. If it is your first time to visit our office in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL to get Botox, we typically perform the treatment on the same day as your initial consultation.
You will be asked to make several expressions using your upper face, like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., to help us to visualize where the injections should be placed. The face will be prepared and Botox will be applied with a fine needle, followed with a cool compress to help minimize discomfort and bruising. You can ask for a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it is usually unnecessary. Botox injections typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, then you may resume to your usual routine as soon as you feel able.
Our specialists at Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery will consider factors such as treatment area, issue addressed, and severity of the concern to create a fully-customized treatment plan. You'll feel at ease with Dr. Garcia as he helps you choose the best course of action and outlines your procedure, recovery, and aftercare regimen.
Botox should continue relaxing your facial muscles for around 3-4 months. After this time, and depending on their goals, patients may receive further injections. Some people may feel that the treatment is slowing down after two months, while others may feel that they may not need to be concerned about wrinkle reduction until well after four months.
The cost of your treatment is based on how many units are needed to treat the areas of concern. This varies for each patient because it depends on how deep the wrinkles are and the size of the treated area. During your consultation for Botox Jacksonville plastic surgeon, Dr. Garcia will discuss your options with you.
Botox isn't the only treatment available to treat wrinkles and fill fine lines. Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery also offers Restylane and Juvederm, among other non-invasive treatments.
While Botox is a neuromodulator that uses a type A botulism toxin to stop muscles from contracting. On the contrary, both Restylane and Juvéderm are injectable dermal fillers using hyaluronic acid to attract and retain moisture to plump the skin, smoothing wrinkles and lines as a result. These treatments are also both virtually pain-free as they are also nonsurgical, giving an additional option for treatment with little to no downtime. Additionally, each method may require additional treatments; Restylane may last up to two years, while Juvéderm can last from 6 to 18 months.
Discussing these and other methods of treatment with Dr. Garcia during your consultation will help you decide which is best for you.
Following the procedure, you may get back to your regular routine, although strenuous activity should be skipped for a minimum of one day. You will be advised to sleep with your head elevated for at least one night and to avoid touching your face, which can accidentally spread the Botox to other areas. The injected sections of your face can appear swollen, bruised, or red for 2 – 3 days, but you should not develop any lasting or serious side effects. In many cases, it typically takes around one week before the final results of Botox can be seen. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. You can talk to your Botox injector about when to make your next appointment at Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery to extend your results.
The cost of your Botox treatment will be based on the amount of product that is needed. This varies to fit your unique goals. During your consultation, Dr. Garcia will develop your custom treatment plan and then he can discuss cost estimates. Botox produces beautiful results when injected by an experienced medical professional. However, it can be dangerous if performed by someone who doesn't have experience, which is why you should avoid any place that is advertising discounted or off-brand injections. If you'd like to save money, ask for more information on the Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Program, which allows you to get points for Botox and other products from Allergan, including Juvéderm.
Your Botox results may be visible for as long as four months. Usually, patients make an appointment every quarter to maintain their results; however, you can come back earlier. If you're using Botox before wrinkles are visible for a proactive measure, you can schedule treatments further apart. After hearing your concerns and developing your Botox plan, Dr. Garcia will be able to tell you when you should make your next visit.
Injectable wrinkle relaxers (including Botox) and injectable wrinkle fillers (including Restylane and Juvéderm) are both procedures that reduce wrinkles and correct fine lines. Botox works by relaxing overused muscles in your face that create dynamic wrinkles, including frown lines (which appear between your eyebrows), Crow's feet (which appear in the outer edges of your eyes), smile lines, and forehead wrinkles. Injectable fillers increase volume below the skin to correct depressions and improve static wrinkles. After hearing your goals, Dr. Garcia may suggest Botox, fillers, or a "liquid facelift", which combines both.
As long as it is used correctly, Botox should not cause serious complications. However, it's important to select someone with Botox training, like the team at our Jacksonville medical spa. Overusing Botox may create bad results. An experienced injector will apply the right dose to safely relax the muscles causing the unwanted wrinkles without affecting nearby muscles. Quickly becoming one of the most requested cosmetic treatments, it's considered safe and has earned approval from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). Along with its cosmetic uses, Botox can also be used as a treatment for medical problems, like excessive sweating, facial spasms, migraines, and uncontrollable blinking.
