Botox Treatments Jacksonville
At James Hardy Plastic Surgery in Jacksonville, Botox is a popular treatment for facial wrinkles. Dr. James Hardy is a plastic surgeon and facial rejuvenation expert who provides highly customized, advanced cosmetic treatments.
What Is Botox?
Botulinum Toxin (Botox) injections temporarily reduce or eliminate facial fine lines and wrinkles by blocking the nerve signals to the muscle in which it was injected. This will keep the muscle from contracting and help to diminish facial wrinkles. The most commonly treated areas are frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes. Dr. Hardy can also treat thick bands in the neck, thick jaw muscles, lip lines, and gummy smiles with this injectable treatment.
What Can Botox Treat?
For patients with early signs of aging, Botox is often the perfect non-surgical alternative to facial plastic surgery, such as a facelift. Botulinum toxin can be used to:
- Smooth crow’s feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, lip lines and bunny lines
- Diminish neck bands
- Relaxes TMJ surrounding muscles
- Improve the appearance of skin dimpling of the chin
- Lift the corners of the mouth
- Soften a square jawline
- Correct a gummy smile
Botox can be performed as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with complementary cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers.
General Botox Treatment Procedure
Dr. Hardy will identify wrinkled areas of the face where the skin furrows are causing the patient’s face to have an aged appearance. By injecting small amounts of Botox® just below the skin, the wrinkle is relaxed and the facial skin begins to smooth out.
What Results Can You Expect?
Botox® is not a permanent solution. The cosmetic effects produced by the underlying relaxed facial muscles will typically last between three to six months. You’ll notice a significant reduction in wrinkles and fine lines and a rejuvenated appearance.
Recovery from Botox Treatments
After most Botox® treatments in Jacksonville, the patient can immediately return to their normal activities with a few common-sense restrictions. Following the post-procedure guidelines you’re given, can dramatically reduce the length and intensity of your recovery period.
Naturally, you should avoid engaging in heavy physical exercise, sweating unnecessarily, applying cosmetics, or laying down flat for the first 4 hours after the injections. It is also advisable to avoid rubbing or massaging any of the areas of the face where the Botox® was injected for at least 24 hours after the non-surgical cosmetic facial procedure.
How Much Does Botox Cost?
Individual Botox treatments vary from patient to patient and depend on their individual needs. The price of Botox depends on the treatment area(s) and the amount needed to achieve the desired appearance. Dr. Hardy will develop your personalized treatment plan and discuss your overall cost during your consultation.
