Botox in Fort Lauderdale, FL

What is Botox®?
Botox® has become a common household name, but many, even those who have had the treatment, have not taken the time to understand what it is, how it works and the benefits/risks that may be associated with it. Botox® is a medical drug that should only be administered by a qualified physician.
While the drug is well known for improving the smoothness of foreheads and other areas, those considering it must remember that Botox® is a paralytic neurotoxin that should only be administered by an experienced professional.
Only brand name Botox® (Allergan) should be administered by an experienced physician.
It is an excellent treatment, and the results are outstanding, but it is important to remember that there are associated risks for people with certain medical or health conditions. Always seek out a center with licensed physicians when considering this procedure.
After having experienced an injection of Botox®, our patients will need to schedule follow-up injections approximately every four months to maintain the benefits.
Benefits of Botox®
People from the ages of 18 to 65 can benefit from Botox® Cosmetic, which is injected into muscles to reduce the appearance of moderate-to-severe glabellar lines, often known as frown lines or “11’s.” By blocking nerve impulses to muscles, this injection serves to abate muscle activity that often leads to pronounced lines between the eyebrows.
Patients say it removes the “angry look”. It is also used around the eyes to remove “crows feet”, or lift the outer part of the eyebrow. It does a fantastic job at completely removing forehead lines and wrinkles. It is also used elsewhere on the face. Consult your doctor about appropriate use.
If properly administered, Botox® Cosmetic should not prevent you from expressing your happiness, surprise, or any other emotion.
How is Botox® Administered?
After the procedure, which normally lasts approximately 10 minutes and requires no downtime, the patient may notice a substantial difference in only days. Many people see continued improvement for up to 30 days after receiving the treatment, with results lasting for up to six months.
Some of those who undergo treatment experience localized pain, tenderness, and redness. Side effects can additionally include infection, inflammation, and bleeding. One concern some people contemplating the procedure name is the idea of looking “frozen” — no longer being able to make animated facial expressions. With new patient’s we treat on the conservative side until we know exactly the results the patient desires. We don’t mind spending a little extra time with our patients.
How Much Does Botox® Cost in Fort Lauderdale?
Botox® is not covered by medical insurance. For your convenience, Doctors Best Wellness Center accepts several forms of payment, including cash, personal checks, and credit cards.
Is Botox® Right for Me?
While a seasoned professional can administer Botox® safely, those with certain ongoing health problems should avoid being treated with Botox® Cosmetic. Do not try Botox® if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, or if you are currently breastfeeding or plan to do so in the near future. It is not yet known if Botox® passes to the fetus in utero or through to your breast milk.
