Overusing certain facial muscles to frown, laugh, and smile can lead to the onset of expression lines that make you look older. Botox is an FDA-approved cosmetic injection that addresses the root cause of dynamic wrinkles, helping you achieve smooth, wrinkle-free skin.
The Ultimate Solution to Dynamic Wrinkles
Dynamic wrinkles appear on your face when producing certain expressions, such as laughing, frowning, and raising your eyebrows in shock. Over time, these expression lines deepen and become more permanent, so they remain on your skin even at rest. The Med Spa of New Smyrna Beach offers highly-calibrated Botox in New Smyrna Beach to suppress the facial muscles responsible for the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, helping you achieve smooth, youthful skin.
How Botox Works
Botox is a neuromodulator made of a neurotoxin protein called botulinum toxin type A. Botox can temporarily block communications between nerve endings and targeted muscles. When injected into the facial muscles responsible for your facial contractions and expression lines, Botox temporarily paralyzes them and suppresses the associated wrinkles. Over time, the unwanted expression lines diminish and fade from the skin’s surface. Botox can shave several years off your appearance.

Can Botox help me avoid wrinkles?
Botox works by temporarily suppressing the facial muscles responsible for the formation of unwanted expression lines. If you start undergoing Botox treatments in your 20s, you can prevent the overuse of the facial muscles responsible for developing dynamic wrinkles. As such, Botox can help you prevent or delay the onset of wrinkles.
How can I prepare for Botox?
Before your Botox in New Smyrna Beach, your doctor will explain the procedure and discuss what you can expect. During this conversation, you should express your concerns or ask any questions. You should also inform your doctor about any medical conditions you may have or medications you are taking.
What happens during the Botox treatment?
Your Botox treatment usually takes about 15 minutes. During the procedure, very small amounts of Botox are injected into specific facial muscles using extremely small needles. This will prevent the muscle from contracting and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. You may receive topical anesthesia before the injections to reduce discomfort.
What are the side effects of Botox?
Botox is a safe and effective procedure, but some temporary side effects may occur. These can include bruising, redness, tenderness at the injection site, headache, and a slight feeling of tightness in the skin.
Am I a good candidate for Botox?
Botox is an excellent solution for patients who want to prevent wrinkles or reduce the prominence of existing dynamic wrinkles, such as forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. However, you should be at least 18 years of age, be physically and mentally healthy, have good skin elasticity, and have realistic expectations about the results. Our medical providers will determine if you’re a good candidate for Botox in New Smyrna Beach.
What are my post-treatment aftercare instructions?
Once your Botox treatment is complete, your practitioner will give you aftercare instructions. This may include taking it easy for the next 24 hours, avoiding strenuous activity and direct sun exposure, and not rubbing or massaging the treated area. It’s also important to keep your head elevated for the first 6-12 hours and to avoid drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours.
Is there any downtime after Botox?
There’s no downtime associated with Botox treatments. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately, but please avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for a day.
What are the Botox results like?
You should start seeing improvements after 2 to 3 days, but the final results will appear within 2 weeks. You can expect the results to last 3 to 6 months.
How many treatments will I need?
You need to get additional injections of Botox in New Smyrna Beach every three to six months to maintain your results. The time between treatments depends on your lifestyle, how quickly your body metabolizes the product, and other factors.
