Getting older doesn’t mean having to look older. As we age, lines, folds, and wrinkles develop from the repeated facial movements and expressions we make every day. In youth, our skin’s elasticity helps keep our faces smooth and wrinkle-free but over time that elasticity fades and the lines and wrinkles become more prominent and permanent. However, with BOTOX® Cosmetic, you can turn back the clock and temporarily erase the signs of aging for a rejuvenated appearance.
At our practice, every BOTOX® Cosmetic injection is performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Bogue, so you can be confident you have chosen an experienced, highly-skilled BOTOX® Cosmetic provider. This injectable restores youthfulness by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
If you’d like to learn more about BOTOX® Cosmetic and how it can help you, please contact us by filling out the form on this page or by calling us at 561-886-1002 to schedule a consultation. We proudly welcome those who live in the Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach areas of South Florida.
How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable form of botulinum toxin that works by blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles responsible for creating certain fine lines and wrinkles on the face. After injection, the muscle is paralyzed for 4 to 6 months resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin.
BOTOX® Cosmetic primarily treats the following types of wrinkles:
- Glabellar lines (vertical lines between the eyebrows)
- Crow's feet (fine creases at the outer corners of the eyes)
- Horizontal lines across the forehead
- Bunny lines (small lines of the upper nose)
BOTOX® Cosmetic is different from injectable fillers like Juvederm®, which smooth wrinkles by filling them in. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a wrinkle relaxer which corrects creases formed not by volume loss, but by the repeated contractions of facial muscles.
When you visit Dr. Bogue for your injection appointment, the treatment area is iced to numb any potential discomfort. He then makes a series of small injections based on your desired results. After your appointment, it will take about 3-7 days before you see the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dr. Bogue provides a complimentary touch-up after 1 week so that you can get perfect, symmetrical results.
Benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic
Patients love BOTOX® Cosmetic because of the following characteristics of the injectable:
- Little to no downtime
- Results last 4-6 months
- Results can be easily maintained
- Injections take only several minutes to administer
Most people go back to work or other daily activities right away. You may see redness at the injection site, but it should begin to dissipate an hour or so after your appointment.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Safety
BOTOX® Cosmetic is consistently one of the most requested and performed cosmetic procedures in the U.S since its initial approval by the FDA in 2002. It’s also one of the safest treatments available. Millions of men and women undergo this treatment each year as it’s significantly less risky than other more invasive facial surgical options. BOTOX® Cosmetic is intended for adults aged 18 to 65.
While BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the safest cosmetic treatments side-effects, while rare, are possible. Any side-effects associated with BOTOX® Cosmetic are generally minor and temporary. Possible side-effects include:
- Minor redness at injection site
- Mild swelling at injection site
- Allergic reaction to product
- Minor headache
- Temporary muscle laxity in injection site
- Minor nausea
Dr. Bogue will go over all points of the treatment, including any side-effects, during your consultation. As with any plastic surgery procedure, he’ll perform a detailed assessment of your current health as well as your medical history to ensure BOTOX® Cosmetic is a safe and effective treatment for your facial rejuvenation goals.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Results
Results may be seen in as little as one week and generally last up to six months per treatment. Our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bogue can safely perform BOTOX® Cosmetic injections every three to six months, or if you feel like you could use a touch-up and Dr. Bogue has determined it’s safe.
The most important thing regarding BOTOX® Cosmetic is that it should only be performed by an experienced professional. It’s possible to improperly inject BOTOX® Cosmetic and having a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Bogue perform this treatment will help you see the best possible results.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Cost
At the practice of Dr. David Bogue, we believe that BOTOX® Cosmetic is like any plastic surgical procedure—you’re paying for results, not for units. Our fee for this injectable is $700, which covers the injection of all areas and touch-ups at 1 week.
