No matter your age, feeling as though you look good can help boost your confidence, enhance your self-esteem, and help you feel great about the skin you’re in. If your skin has begun to sag, wrinkle, or look dull, your dermatologist can help you rejuvenate your complexion to look better than ever. Botox is a common and effective dermatological treatment which occurs right in your doctor’s office in just minutes. Find out more about Botox and how it can help your facial skin with Dr. Ellen Jacobson at Skin MD in Nashville, TN.

What is Botox?
Botox is a treatment which restricts the movement of the muscles underneath the facial skin. This helps prevent new wrinkles from forming and allows the skin to relax, smoothing its current appearance and contributing to a beautiful, more youthful appearance. The procedure for Botox is fast and takes your dermatologist only minutes to perform.

Can Botox help me? 
If you have unwanted fine lines or wrinkles in your facial skin, you may benefit from Botox. Botox also helps in situations like excessive sweating, migraine headaches, and even temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. If you think you can benefit from Botox, consulting with your dermatologist is your best option to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure.

What can I expect from a Botox treatment? 
A Botox appointment begins with the patient lying on a treatment table and making themselves comfortable. Your doctor cleanses the face and marks the areas of the skin they think would benefit most. They will then use a super-thin needle to administer the Botox to the muscles underneath the skin. Most patients report that there is little pain and hardly any recovery. You may see some slight redness or swelling around the injection sites for a day or two.
