Botox® in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. F. Leigh Phillips, III, PA, FACS is Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale and South Florida’s Source for Plastic Surgery and the Ultimate in Non-Surgical Aesthetic Enhancements, including Botox®.

What is Botox®?

Botox® is an injectable toxin known as botulinum.  The toxin was first used to treat the optic muscles in the 1980s, but in 2002, Botox® was approved by the FDA for the treatment of frown lines between the eyebrows and on the forehead.  These frown lines are caused by the contraction of specific muscles.

How Botox® Works to Improve Your Appearance

When you frown, you contract the muscles between your eyes and on your forehead.  As the muscles contract, they create wrinkles.  Botox® injections paralyze these muscles by blocking the neurotransmitter acetylcholine that controls the muscles.  Botox® treatments typically take about 30 minutes, and you notice an improvement in five to seven days.  Over the following one to two days, you continue to see the lines disappear.  In most cases, Botox® treatments take about 30 minutes, and you can repeat the treatment every three to four months.

Help Prevent Deep Creases with Botox® Treatments from Dr. Phillips

Many of our patients in Coral Springs and Fort Lauderdale tell us that by using Botox®, they re-train themselves to not use their forehead muscles when they frown.  As a result, their wrinkles do not become deeper creases.
