Botox Treatments in Plantation, Florida
Laughter, sadness, anger and surprise – your face shows all your emotions to the world. A lifetime of emotions means your facial muscles have been put to the test, leading to wrinkles, crow’s feet and laugh lines.
All these signs of emotion can leave you looking older than your years – but thanks to today’s technology, we can significantly reduce their appearance on your face. With BOTOX Cosmetic treatment, you will be able to see a visible improvement to the wrinkles on your face – and you’ll have smoother skin for up to four months.
We administer small injections directly into the area you’d like to improve. If you’re concerned about pain or have sensitive facial areas, we’ll be happy to apply an ice pack or anesthetic cream to the area we’ll be working on.
The purified protein from the injection goes to work immediately on the facial muscles that are causing wrinkles. You will begin to notice visible improvements over the next month.
BOTOX Cosmetic treatments can improve:
- Worry lines in forehead
- Lines between the eyebrows
- Smile lines
- Laugh lines, from nose to mouth
- Crow’s feet
We welcome you to come in and talk to Dr. Krimsky about whether BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is right for you, and we’ll be glad to answer all of your questions.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is BOTOX?
A: BOTOX is a medication that is injected into the muscles to improve the appearance of moderate-to-severe wrinkles. BOTOX can also be used to improve excessive sweating.
Q: What are the benefits of BOTOX?
A: BOTOX is a quick and painless in-office procedure with no down time. The results can be observed after only a few days and last approximately four months.
Q: Where are BOTOX injections most commonly delivered?
A: BOTOX is most frequently used for the frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet around the eyes. We also perform advanced treatments, such as BOTOX brow lifts.
Q: Will everyone know that I had a BOTOX treatment?
A: Our treatment providers provide natural looking results. Patients report a refreshed and youthful appearance, never an over-injected or unnatural look.
Q: Am I too young for BOTOX?
A: Probably not. Many people have overactive muscles that can result in prominent expression lines as early as their 20s. BOTOX injections will relax those muscles and prevent the expression lines from becoming permanent.
Q: Is BOTOX painful?
A: Most patients experience no pain from the injections.
Q: Who should not use BOTOX?
A: There are very few people who are not candidates for BOTOX cosmetic. Those with certain neurological conditions may not be eligible.
Q: How long does BOTOX last?
A: There is some variation among individuals. Most patients go three to four months between treatments. It has been our observation that long-term BOTOX users are able to go longer between appointments, however.
Q: What will happen if I discontinue BOTOX treatments?
A: The medication will gradually leave the muscle, and as the muscles begin to contract again, wrinkles in the skin will reform
