When it comes to fighting the signs of aging, many patients turn to the experts at 360 Dermatology. Dr. Ambay, of Tampa, has years of experience in helping patients to turn back the hands of time. The signs of aging, such as sagging, fine lines and wrinkles, are the most common concerns of patients who are age forty and over. In some cases, patients in their thirties want to learn about ways to reduce the upcoming signs of aging with a more proactive approach to their skin care. Dr. Ambay can help men and women of all ages address fine lines and wrinkles and for the more prominent folds that appear on the face, she might suggest treatments such as BOTOX injections.

Botox is an injectable medication that is used to reduce the movement and contractions of particular muscles in the face. It is most commonly injected into the glabellar lines, which are the “elevens” that appear between the eyebrows when a patient shows signs of concern, anger, or worry. Botox is used to keep these muscles from contracting, thus smoothing the skin in this area and reducing the appearance of these lines.

Many patients are afraid that Botox will cause inability to show emotion. This is not the case. When used properly and injected by a board certified dermatologist, patients will be able to enjoy a natural appearance while eliminating these deep folds and wrinkles on the face. Dr. Ambay, of Tampa’s 360 Dermatology, is a qualified professional who is able to provide these injectables to give patients the results that they desire without the side effects of a stiff, emotionless face.

Botox is an injectable that works well with other treatments such as dermal fillers. Dermal fillers can stimulate collagen and provide volume in areas of the face, providing a more youthful appearance while reducing fine lines and wrinkles around the forehead, eyes and mouth. Patients will often see the best results by combining Botox injections and dermal fillers. Dr. Ambay will discuss the benefits of combining these treatments for optimum results.
