Botox® in Florida
The professionals at Suncoast Skin Solutions have been dedicated to providing patients with comprehensive surgical, medical, and cosmetic dermatological care. Our cutting-edge surgical and non-surgical approaches to medical and cosmetic dermatology provide our patients with natural-looking results that require minimal downtime and recovery.
What is Botox®?
It's no secret that as you get older, your skin begins to look older too. While many people think the only way to rejuvenate the skin is through invasive plastic surgery procedures, we want to assure our patients that getting healthy, youthful-looking skin doesn't have to be that complicated. Botox® is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that smooths away fine lines and deep wrinkles around the forehead eyes, and brows for an effortlessly youthful appearance that lasts months at a time. This injectable treatment works by temporarily relaxing the muscles in the face that cause fine lines and wrinkles to appear through repeated facial expressions. With no downtime or recovery period, Botox® has easily become a fan-favorite.
How Much Does Botox® Cost?
The cost of your Botox® treatments at Suncoast Skin Solutions is going to vary depending on the type of treatment you choose to receive and the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results. To find out a more accurate cost for your Botox® treatments, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our expert staff members.
What are the Benefits of Botox®?
There are many benefits to receiving Botox® treatments at Suncoast Skin Solutions, including:
- Smooths away crow's feet around the eyes
- Relaxes fine lines and deep wrinkles along the forehead
- Reduces the appearance of frown lines between the brows
- Minimally invasive injectable treatment
- No downtime and minimal recovery period
- Results lasting four to six months per treatment
What Can I Expect During my Botox® Treatments?
Your Botox® treatments will be performed at your local Suncoast Skin Solutions office by one of our expert dermatologists. Before your Botox® treatment begins, a topical anesthetic may be applied to your treatment area, typically around the upper third of the face. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment. Once numb, a series of Botox® injections will be carefully and strategically placed in your desired treatment areas. The entire treatment process typically takes less than an hour to complete.
What Can I Expect After my Botox® Treatments?
Because Botox® is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment, there is no formal downtime or recovery period needed following your appointment. While many patients report mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness at their injection sites, these side effects typically subside on their own within a few days of treatment. Because it takes time for the active ingredients in Botox® to relax your treated muscles, it may take up to five to see your desired results. Our doctors generally recommend receiving Botox® treatments every three to four months to maintain your youthful appearance.
Is Botox® Right for Me?
If you're unhappy with the fine lines and deep wrinkles along your forehead, between your brows, and around your eyes, Botox® treatments may be right for you. The best way to find out if Botox® is right for you is to schedule a private consultation with one of our dermatologists. They'll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, assess your skin, and develop a fully personalized treatment plan to help you get your healthiest-looking and -feeling skin. Ideal candidates for Botox® are in good general health and have realistic expectations of their potential results.
