Have you found yourself wondering what all of the buzz over BOTOX® Cosmetic is about? Or how to get rid of forehead lines? This popular wrinkle treatment has proven to be a highly effective, minimally-invasive way to smooth out wrinkles with no downtime and results that last for months. Nathan E. Nachlas, M.D. offers BOTOX® for patients who want a softer, more relaxed looking brow.
As you age, the brow can take on a tense, scowling appearance due to the lines that become etched around the eyes. Squinting and furrowing your brows, combined with sun exposure and time, produce the familiar crow’s feet, horizontal forehead lines, and vertical frown lines between the brows. BOTOX® Cosmetic can smooth out these lines and creases, giving you a more refreshed appearance.
About BOTOX® Cosmetic
By now, just about everyone has heard about BOTOX® Cosmetic, since it is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments nationwide. Women and men from all walks of life – from celebrities to soccer moms – are using BOTOX®. People come to Dr. Nachlas’s office from as far as Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach; residents who want to look refreshed without plastic surgery trust Dr. Nachlas to administer their treatments, because of his years of experience performing procedures for the aging face.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein that works by relaxing the tiny muscles responsible for the simple, subconscious muscle movements that cause wrinkles around the eyes over time. Very small amounts of BOTOX® are injected into these muscles, and the result is a softened, less tense appearance.
A common misconception about BOTOX® is that it “freezes” the face or somehow limits facial expressions. However, only the tiny muscles that cause the wrinkles are treated, while the larger muscles that control your expressions are left alone. People will notice that you look rested and refreshed, but your results will not be “obvious.”
Your BOTOX® Treatment
The friendly and warm staff at Dr. Nachlas’s Boca Raton office will make you feel relaxed and at ease. Dr. Nachlas will answer any questions that you have before your procedure with his trademark patience and honesty. Before the BOTOX® is injected, the treatment area will be cleansed, and if you feel you need it, a topical anesthetic can be applied.
Dr. Nachlas uses a tiny needle to inject BOTOX® only into the targeted muscles responsible for your lines and wrinkles. There is usually very little swelling or redness, but these can be easily managed with a cool compress. BOTOX® injections are completed in less than 30 minutes, and can be combined with other treatments such as injectable fillers or aesthetician services. Most patients return immediately to their normal daily activities after their BOTOX® treatment. Results typically begin to show over the course of 5 to 7 days, and last up to 6 months. Regularly scheduled treatments may result in increased effectiveness and prolonged results.
