BOTOX® is the most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure with over six million treatments being performed each year. It is most popular among women, but men in Fort Lauderdale are also enjoying the amazing benefits of this treatment. While it was once used for those who were middle-aged and older, increasing numbers of younger people are currently using it to prevent the formation of wrinkles.
The treatment works by temporarily relaxing tiny muscles underneath the surface of the skin. If these muscles are relaxed, they cannot contract to create wrinkles. If no wrinkles form with facial expressions, then no lines will set in the face. BOTOX® is definitely the right treatment for tens of thousands in the United States. To find out if it is right for you, there are some basic questions to ask before getting the treatment.
Where are You Getting the Treatment?
You can find BOTOX® offered at thousands of offices across the country. However, to find a provider with the most education and experience in using the product safely and effectively, look for a provider who is well-versed in the treatment. When you’re interested in BOTOX® in Fort Lauderdale and are looking for a clinic, look no further than Dermatology Consultants of South Florida.
Where Can BOTOX® Be Used?
Our provider should be able to tell you exactly how the treatment works, where it safely works and how it will affect the treated muscle. For example, we can explain how to get a brow lift effect and how to ensure that your face does not appear “frozen” after treatment.
Is BOTOX® Safe?
This treatment has been FDA-approved for numerous years and has been used safely without incidence of serious side effects throughout that time. While everyone responds to treatments differently, most experience only mild side effects, such as temporary redness, if they experience any at all.
What Are the Typical Results?
Most people in Fort Lauderdale begin to notice results within just days. Results should last a minimum of three months, and some people have great results beyond that. In fact, the longer you get injections, the longer your results will last.
Is This the Right Choice for My Needs?
BOTOX® is appropriate for treating expression lines that have not yet set into deep wrinkles. It is an amazing treatment that can prevent wrinkles from forming and that can temporarily eliminate expression lines on the face.
