Why patients in the Jacksonville area should visit a Botox specialist for injections
Dr. Mary Pentel and the team of Southside Dermatology in Jacksonville believe that patients in the area should have access to the best cosmetic procedures. Many want to speak to a specialist who provides aesthetic services such as Botox injections because they are interested in having quality work completed. At our practice, we encourage patients to take the time to learn more about injectables such as Botox often used as an anti-aging solution.
Botox is an injectable commonly used for patients in and around the Jacksonville area who are faced with wrinkles and folds around the eyes and on the forehead area, including the area between the eyebrows. When patients squint or frown over time, the skin may develop folds. This can cause patients to feel self-conscious about their appearance and consider solutions with a quality dermatologist. Instead of undergoing extensive plastic surgery, patients are urged to consider the advantages of injectables such as Botox.
Botox is a neuromodulator that works by reducing muscle contractions, and thus, smoothing the skin and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Dr. Mary Pentel uses this and other common neuromodulators such as Xeomin and Dysport depending on the needs of her patients. They are injected directly into the muscles of the face and patients can begin to see the results of treatment after approximately one week. They remain for about six months, depending on the strength of the injection and on how the muscles respond to treatment. Most patients schedule regular visits with their dermatologist for follow-up injections to maintain their more youthful appearance.
