Botox Destin

Treating the signs of aging

Nobody can avoid the natural signs of aging. As we grow older, we notice that our skin loses its firmness, giving us a tired appearance. A lot of people see thinning skin, fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and sagging skin to be the most common signs of aging.

These are because of the biological changes that make us lose collagen from the body. Collagen, being one of the most important proteins, is essential for keeping the skin’s elasticity and youthfulness. Once collagen reserves deplete, the face begins to look gaunt and aged, and this can happen even when a person is still young.

If you are looking for a cosmetic enhancement that effectively treats the signs of aging, Botox at Destin Botox is the right choice.

What are neuromodulators?

A neuromodulator is a muscle-relaxing injection consisting of botulinum toxin. The most well-known neuromodulator in the market is Botox. Neuromodulators are mainly used to treat wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Still, cosmetic doctors have found it to be useful in treating other conditions as well, such as excessive sweating and lazy eyes. A lot of people have been choosing Botox as an effective treatment to target chin wrinkles, folds under the eyes, treat bunny nose lines, and sagging skin on the neck.

The effect of a neuromodulator is quite simple. A minimal amount of the product is injected into the skin and into the underlying muscle, which causes it to relax; the result is smooth, evened-out skin, which looks young and firm.

The effects of neuromodulators typically last for a couple of months but could last longer depending on the treatment chosen. Botox is the only known neuromodulator that has been approved by the FDA to treat conditions outside of cosmetic enhancements. Interestingly, many men are also making good use of Botox injections to enhance their appearance and make them look naturally youthful.

How to prepare for Botox injections

Once you receive an initial consultation at our medspa in Santa Rosa Beach, FL, Dr. Amber Wiebe, will first analyze your facial features and determine the areas that could benefit from Botox injections. She will guide you through the entire process and keep you informed along every step of the way. You’ll get the best Botox Destin and Santa Rosa Beach have to offer.

Your medical history will be taken into account to ensure that you are an ideal candidate for the treatment.

First, you will need to inform our doctor if you have had any injectables put into your face or had any neuromodulator therapy in the past. If you take muscle relaxants, allergy/cold medicine, blood-thinners, or sleep medicines, you need to disclose this to the doctor as well. Dr. Wiebe will advise you to stop taking blood-thinning medication for about a week before your appointment to prevent any side effects such as bruising or bleeding. Neuromodulators like Botox are not recommended to women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Results with Botox

The patient needs virtually no recovery time after receiving the Botox injections. The full effects of Botox injections can be seen in about a week or two post-treatment. In some cases, you can come in for a follow-up two weeks after getting the procedure done so that Dr. Amber Wiebe can make any necessary adjustments. The results of Botox injections last for about 3 to 4 months.

For treatments concerning excessive sweating, patients will notice a decrease in sweating in about two weeks, and the results last for about six months. Patients will need to come in for more sessions to eliminate the problem.

What to expect

Before the procedure

Before the procedure, our doctor will recommend any steps that may need to be taken to ease the process. Typically, Botox injections don’t cause too much pain or discomfort. The doctor may not numb the area if the treatment is for wrinkles and fine lines, but if you are using Botox to treat excessive sweating on your palms or soles, it is best to numb your skin beforehand. If needed, our doctor may use topical anesthesia, ice, and vibration anesthesia to numb the skin and massage the area to reduce discomfort.

During the procedure

Dr. Amber Wiebe will first mark the areas to be treated. Next, she will use a thin needle to inject a small amount of botulinum toxin into the skin and underlying muscles. Depending on how extensive the treatment is or how much of a difference the patient desires, more injections of Botox may also be used in a single treatment.

After the procedure

Following the injections of Botox, Destin Botox’s Dr. Amber Wiebe will guide you through all the after-care steps you need to consider. We recommend that you avoid napping, resting your face on a pillow, bending forward, and strenuous exercise for at least four hours after the treatment. It would also be ideal to avoid getting a facial or a massage on the same day as your Botox appointment. If you have any specific questions, you can ask Dr. Wiebe, who will be pleased to answer them for you.
