Everything You Need to Know about Botox in West Melbourne, FL

Did you hear that Botox® was recently named “Best Wrinkle-Erasing Injectable” by NewBeauty magazine? What’s more, Botox also made RealSelf’s “Most Worth It” Procedures list! Based on the votes of real people who’ve tried—and loved—it, Botox is at the top of this trusted resource’s award list and we’re delighted because it’s one of our favs too!

If you’re tempted to find out what everyone’s raving about, but still need some convincing, we’ve answered all your questions here.

Is Botox safe?

Yes! Botox is safe. Botox is FDA-approved for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the brows, and crow’s feet along the sides of your eyes. In fact, Botox is also FDA-approved for a surprisingly wide range of medical concerns, including migraines, excessive sweating, and certain eye disorders.

Who is allowed to give a Botox injection?

 Licensed physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician’s assistants (who are under the supervision of a board-certified doctor) can deliver injections in Florida, so make sure it’s one of these three administering your treatment. Give yourself some additional peace of mind by finding out how many years of experience your provider has, how many treatments they’ve performed, and ask to see some patient before and after photos.

Will my face look frozen?

 Botox works by temporarily relaxing the muscle activity underlying your wrinkles and lines. It should not, however, freeze your look or impair your ability to move your facial features.

What areas of my face can be treated with Botox?

Botox is best for smoothing moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose.

How long will my Botox injections last?

 Your Botox injections should last up to 4 months per session. As an added benefit, Botox also works as a wrinkle preventer.

How long will my Botox session last?

 Botox session length will vary, depending on the number of injections you are getting. For most people, sessions last about 20 minutes, so it’s an easy treatment to fit into a busy schedule. Your first session may take a little longer because we will want to make sure you are fully educated about the treatment, and that we completely understand your aesthetic goals.

Can I go back to work after my injections?

 There are very few side effects with Botox, though it is an injection, so you may see some pinpoint bleeding or swelling. These side effects will fade quickly on their own and no one will know that you’ve just had an injection.
