Botox® in West Palm Beach, FL
Forehead and other facial wrinkles do not have to be bothersome. Botox® is an effective way to treat forehead wrinkles for those who live in Jupiter, West Palm Beach, and Palm Beach County.
Botox® is available at Supriya Aesthetic Dermatology in Jupiter and West Palm Beach and is given under the expertise of Dr. Supriya Tomar. We are one of the top injectors in Palm Beach County, and we are in the top 4% nationwide with Allergan, the makers of Botox®. Our primary focus with our injectables patients remains giving everyone natural results and ensuring our patients look younger and naturally beautiful, and averting a "plastic" appearance.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is actually short for botulinum toxin and has been proven safe in clinical trials when injected into the forehead and frown lines area. It works by temporarily weakening the muscles in the forehead and frown lines, so they are unable to expand or contract. When this happens, the appearance of wrinkles is also diminished.
Botox® has more recently been introduced as a treatment for Hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive perspiration. Individuals suffering with hyperhidrosis can read about how botulinum toxin can aid in the relief of this condition by learning more in our recent blog on this topic.
Where can I have Botox® or other Neurotoxins injected?
How is Botox® given?
Dr. Tomar will examine a patient before administering this injection. In doing so, she will assess the depth and location of forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown and worry lines, etc. to determine the best spots for injection. Next, she will draw precisely the right amount of medication into a syringe and then inject this substance into the predetermined areas. In most cases, these areas are the muscles of the forehead, but it could also be administered around crow’s feet and the neck (off-label use). By strategically placing Botox®, Dr. Tomar can give her patients Botox® brow lifts and Botox® neck lifts.
More severe side effects can also rarely occur; your doctor will discuss these and any other concerns with you during your consultation.
When will results be noticed?
Results can be noticed in 3 to 5 days. For some patients, it can take 2 weeks to see full benefits.
How long will results last?
Botox® injections can be expected to last around 3 to 6 months. After this time, another set of injections may need to be given. Some patients find that subsequent treatments tend to last longer.
Is it safe for patients to give these treatments to themselves?
While it is becoming increasingly common for people to hold “Botox® parties” and inject themselves with this toxin, it is not recommended. Botox® can legally be administered only by a licensed physician, so any medication obtained from another source may be of inferior quality. It’s also necessary for people to have a complete medical history performed to rule out complications that could make serious side effects more likely.
How Much Does Botox® Cost?
Cost varies based on a patient's individual needs, the areas being treated, and the brand being used (we offer Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®). It is advised that patients come in for a consultation before scheduling a botox appointment so that we may assess each patient's specific needs and provide the best course of treatment. Skin rejuvenation treatments are considered to be elective, so most insurance providers won’t cover the costs. To help make Botox® affordable and accessible for everyone, Supriya Aesthetic Dermatology offers financing options via CareCredit®. We also accept cash, personal checks, and major credit cards.
