Do you ever wake up in the morning and just wish your facial wrinkles would disappear? Thanks to the magic of BOTOX®, now they can. With BOTOX® at FM Medical, you can diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that create them. BOTOX® temporarily reduces the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent lines that have developed over time around your eyes and between your brows.
Dr. Scott Michaels is pleased to provide this extremely popular anti-aging treatment to his patients in St. Augustine. Our BOTOX® procedures have improved the appearance of men and women in throughout St. Johns County.
If you are considering BOTOX®, then please make sure to call FM Medical.
Is BOTOX® Right for Me?
Having a St. Augustine BOTOX® procedure is one way that you can invest in your appearance. It has been approved by the FDA as a temporary treatment of moderate to severe frown lines in people ages 18 to 65. Some common target sites for our St. Augustine BOTOX® patients include:
- Lines between the brows (glabellar lines)
- Grooves in the forehead
- Wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet)
- Frown and laugh lines extending from the nose to the corners of the mouth
How Does BOTOX® Work?
A St. Augustine BOTOX® treatment requires no anesthesia and typically takes less than an hour, so it can be done in our Orlando office. The procedure begins with a fine needle that infuses the BOTOX® solution, which is a dilute form of botulinum, into the targeted area. The toxin blocks nerve impulses to the injected muscles, reducing the activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form.
What is the Recovery Process for BOTOX®?
This could be what you’ve always been looking for — a procedure that can temporarily smooth the moderate lines on your face with no surgery and no recovery time. You can see an improvement from your St. Augustine BOTOX® treatment within one to two weeks, and the results may last for up to four months. Once the muscle relaxes and the skin softens, you will have a smoother and more youthful appearance.
BOTOX® will not radically change your facial appearance. You can still frown or look surprised but without all the wrinkles and creases. If you do not continue treatments, then the frown lines between your brows and around your eyes will gradually return.
What are St. Augustine BOTOX® Costs?
St. Augustine BOTOX® prices for each patient rely heavily on the amount of solution required to treat the target area. When you meet with Dr. Michaels, he can provide more information about the procedure, including what St. Augustine BOTOX® costs might be for you.
At FM Medical, you will be treated as an individual, not just another patient. Please schedule a complimentary consultation with us today, so we can discuss our St. Augustine BOTOX® treatments and how they can help you. We welcome men and women not just from St. Augustine, but from all of St. Johns county and throughout Florida.
WARNING: DISTANT SPREAD OF TOXIN EFFECT
Postmarketing reports indicate that the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic and all botulinum toxin products may spread from the area of injection to produce symptoms consistent with botulinum toxin effects. These may include asthenia, generalized muscle weakness, diplopia, ptosis, dysphagia, dysphonia, dysarthria, urinary incontinence and breathing difficulties. These symptoms have been reported hours to weeks after injection. Swallowing and breathing difficulties can be life threatening and there have been reports of death. The risk of symptoms is probably greatest in children treated for spasticity but symptoms can also occur in adults treated for spasticity and other conditions, particularly in those patients who have an underlying condition that would predispose them to these symptoms. In unapproved uses, including spasticity in children, and in approved indications, cases of spread of effect have been reported at doses comparable to those used to treat cervical dystonia and at lower doses.
