Botox® offers the chance to temporarily turn back the hands of time and is among the most popular medical aesthetics treatments in the world. Botox is also one of the services available from JoAnn Vitiello, FNP-C, of Vitiello Primary Care in Maricopa, Arizona. When you’re ready to see what all the buzz is about, call or click to schedule an appointment.
Botox is an injectable medication that temporarily reduces the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and folds. It’s approved for use on crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. Botox is often used off-label to treat other areas.
This injectable medication is made from a carefully controlled volume of a neurotoxin. When injected into targeted facial muscles, Botox temporarily prevents those muscles from going through their full range of motion. You’ll still be able to make normal facial expressions, but the muscles won’t be strong enough to tug and pull your skin into lines and folds.
It takes just moments to receive Botox treatments, and the results develop in 24-48 hours. You can expect those results to last around four months, at which point you’ll notice your lines and wrinkles slowly returning. Xeomin® is a similar injectable treatment that also reduces the visible signs of aging.
Once you see how Botox can smooth lines and soften wrinkles, you’ll want to do all you can to improve the look and feel of your skin. Chemical peels are a great option that removes the outermost layers of skin, revealing a layer of fresh, healthy skin cells. There are several options to suit a wide range of treatment needs and goals.
Microneedling is another way to achieve a glowing, clear complexion that is soft and smooth to the touch. This treatment uses a powered handpiece covered in tiny treatment needles to create tiny channels into the deeper layers of skin. Your body responds with new collagen production and enhanced circulation, smoothing and plumping skin.
Taking great care of your skin at home is an excellent way to extend the results of professional medical aesthetics treatments. But with so many skin care options to choose from, it isn’t always easy to feel confident about your routine.
At Vitiello Primary Care, you have access to skilled practitioners that can help you find the right skin care regimen for your needs. In addition to Botox and other treatments, the practice proudly offers products from the PCA® Skin, a company known for top quality ingredients and reliable results.
