Botox Injection, Botox Injections in FL
Over time, repetitive facial movements such as smiling, laughing, and frowning, can cause fine lines and wrinkles that make individuals look older than they feel. Now, patients in Jupiter, FL, can erase lines and wrinkles and reclaim their youthful appearance with Botox injections. This treatment works by stopping the nerve signals, which allows the muscles in the face to relax and reduces the appearance of lines.

Dr. Peter Vitulli, a respected dermatologist has helped countless patients improve their appearance with a wide array of dermatology solutions. He helps patients understand how Botox works, how to prepare, and what to expect following treatment.

  • Before treatment, Dr. Vitulli advises patients to avoid the sun for two weeks before the procedure to ensure that the skin is not sunburned and avoid waxing or tweezing the treatment area. Finally, it’s important to inform the medical team of any medications that you’re taking.
  • During the procedure, the Botox will be injected into the facial muscles with a fine needle. Many patients say they feel only a tiny bit of discomfort during the procedure. Botox treatment takes less than 10 minutes and patients can get back to their regular day quickly.
  • After the treatment, patients are advised to exercise the facial muscles for short periods of time. This can be accomplished by smiling, frowning, and raising your eyebrows. Patients should also avoid facial treatments, massages, saunas, or lying down for at least four hours after the treatment. Common side effects of Botox include bruising, inflammation, and redness.

While the full results of the Botox procedure may not be realized for about a week, the effects last for several months. Dr. Vitulli will discuss your follow up treatments and develop a schedule to maintain your results. If you’re considering Botox, call the office of Dr. Vitulli today.
