BOTOX is a proven, effective, and safe cosmetic solution through which lines and wrinkles on the upper parts of the face can be lessened. Many of our patients choose to rejuvenate their appearance with this FDA-approved injectable. For years, this safe and effective treatment has helped countless patients fight the effects of aging.
Every day we make countless facial expressions. Every time we smile, speak, or laugh, we use certain muscles on the forehead and around the eyes and mouth. We don’t notice we do it most of the time, but it is a never-ending dance of expression across our faces. Over time, the constant use of muscles makes them taut and toned.
While we may love this on other areas of the body, the overuse of facial muscles is a common cause of premature aging. The constant movement of skin and muscle begins to form wrinkles. At first, those wrinkles fade when we relax our features. Over time, they begin to stay. Fighting those wrinkles is what Botox is all about.
As the best dermatologist Tampa has around, Dr. Lombardi is passionate about helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals. With his skill and expertise, he has helped countless individuals fight the effects of age and build new confidence.
How Botox Works
Injections of BOTOX ease the contractions of muscles commonly used to make facial expressions. Using an FDA-approved substance, the treatment limits the extremity of how these muscles contract. When done properly by an experienced expert, you will have a lively expression but decreased wrinkle formation.
The minimally invasive treatment is typically very comfortable and takes only a few minutes to complete. Injections with a very fine needle produce a state of relaxation. Dr. Lombardi targets areas carefully to ensure optimal results and maximum comfort.
This does not mean, however, that you will completely lose the ability to show emotion. While many jokes have been made about the “freezing” effect of BOTOX, the results achieved by discerning physicians such as Dr. Lombardi will let you show your best self. That is why it is essential to have the treatment performed by a board-certified expert.
What Makes BOTOX So Popular
BOTOX has been used around the world for many years. Its excellent reputation has made this cosmetic treatment well known amongst men and women who want to remain in control of their own aging process. Whether for wrinkle reduction or a natural-looking non-surgical brow lift, our use of BOTOX Cosmetic will do wonders for your appearance and your confidence.
As a non-surgical treatment, BOTOX is far more convenient than surgical procedures. There is virtually no downtime, and the treatment itself takes almost no time at all. It is an excellent option for patients who want to fight aging, but do not want to commit to cosmetic surgery.
Is BOTOX Right for Me?
BOTOX is an excellent treatment option for patients of almost any age. Younger patients also can benefit significantly from this treatment. Even before wrinkles form, you can have a BOTOX treatment as a preventative measure. After all, it is easier to prevent wrinkle formation than to smooth them once they are established.
Dr. Lombardi may use BOTOX to erase crow’s feet around the eyes, to diminish horizontal lines on the forehead, or erase vertical lines between the brows. Current usage also sees BOTOX used around the mouth and on the neck in certain situations.
Your BOTOX treatment will involve discussion and evaluation of your areas of concern. Dr. Lombardi will strategically insert the solution into superficial muscles. Though slight redness at injection sites may occur, this is typically very mild, and you can resume normal activities immediately.
You will notice an immediate improvement in your features. However, the complete results will become more apparent over the coming weeks. As your muscles become more relaxed, your skin will have a chance to slowly regain its smoother appearance.
The effects of BOTOX® will continue to develop over the course of about seven days. While every person metabolizes the medication at their own rate, most enjoy continued smoothness in the skin for four to six months. In order to keep optimal results, we recommend regular check-ups. With each additional treatment, your results will continue to improve. We recommend having follow-up treatments performed by Dr. Lombardi as well, so he can further fine-tune your treatment to your goals.
