Botox® in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Are you frustrated by frown lines, smile lines, and deep forehead creases? Often, these wrinkles are caused not by sagging skin, but by overactive facial muscles. Over time, repetitive movement of these muscles causes lines to form in the skin. Botox®, an injectable muscle relaxant, can relax these wrinkles by temporarily preventing the muscles from fully retracting, allowing the skin over the muscles to flatten. At the Weston Center for Plastic Surgery, Nathan Eberle, M.D., D.D.S. offers Botox® to residents in and around Fort Lauderdale and Broward County.
What Is Botox®?
Botox® is a popular treatment produced from a refined bacterium, administered directly into facial muscles via a thin needle. It is regularly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, such as “crow’s feet” that often appear as a result of aging or overactive muscles. Sometimes referred to as botulinum toxin type A, Botox® functions by momentarily paralyzing the facial muscles, thus causing wrinkles in the skin to smooth, leaving patients with a firmer and more youthful appearance.
Injectable muscle relaxants such as Botox® are beneficial because they assist in the reversal of common issues such as:
- Deep wrinkles, brow and forehead.
- Persistent or chronic underarm perspiration.
- The appearance of “crow’s feet”.
Botox® can help boost self-esteem and enhance quality of life by providing patients with a rejuvenated, relaxed and a more radiant appearance.
Is Botox® Right For Me?
If you are a healthy adult who finds themselves complaining about noticeable facial wrinkles, Botox® may be right for you.Dr. Eberle administers Botox® to patients who seek to reduce the appearance of wrinkles caused by facial muscle movement, such as frown lines or brow wrinkles. Muscle relaxant injections offer a minimally invasive alternative to clients who do not wish to undergo cosmetic surgery.
How Involved Is The Botox® Procedure?
Dr. Eberle can administer these injections right in our Weston office and it takes just a few minutes. No anesthesia is needed and you’ll be able to leave the office as soon as the injections have been administered. This technique involves multiple injections of a small volume of Botox®, which is a purified, diluted version of botulinum toxin. Dr. Eberle uses a fine needle is used to deliver these injections directly into the facial muscle, where it temporarily blocks nerve signals. As a result, the muscle relaxes, smoothing the wrinkled skin.
How Long Is The Recovery After Botox®?
Botox® is often called a “lunchtime treatment” since patients are able to return to work and other activities nearly immediately. You may experience slight bruising or a headache for one to two days and should avoid rubbing your face. No bandages are required over the treatment area. Patients generally find that the results of their Botox® session remain visible for up to six months.
How Much Does Botox® Cost?
