About BOTOX

To help turn back the hands of time and to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming on the upper section of the face, Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center in Port St. Lucie, FL is proud to offer BOTOX to local patients. This nonsurgical procedure provides gorgeous results and is extremely popular among both men and women. BOTOX can make a big enhancement to dynamic lines and wrinkles, which are created by making expressions with the muscles contracting on the upper face. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic lines can still exist. BOTOX is a filtered strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the muscle. To correct these dynamic lines, BOTOX is injected to soften the skin. BOTOX is most commonly placed by plastic surgeon Dr. S. Darrell Lee between the brows, on the Crow's feet, and along the forehead.

Ideal Candidates

BOTOX is ideal for individuals who want to smooth the appearance of dynamic lines on their face nonsurgically. BOTOX is also used as a preventive treatment even if you are younger — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It is a great nonsurgical approach if you have forehead lines or noticeable furrows between the brows. It's also a solution for lines that form around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, an injectable filler may be recommended. Furthermore, if you are older with severe wrinkles, you may opt for a facelift. This offers a more dramatic result and it is more long term. Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center offers facelifts, brow lifts, and eyelid surgeries as great options.

Procedure Technique

BOTOX injections are performed as an outpatient procedure directly at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center. If it is your first time to visit us in Port St. Lucie, FL for BOTOX, we typically perform the injection during the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Lee. You will be asked to make several facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to visualize where the injections should be placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be injected through a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help minimize discomfort and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not necessary. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities as soon as you feel able.

What to Expect

After the injection, you can resume your regular activities, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You will be asked to sleep upright for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may be slightly swollen, bruised, or red for a few days, but you will not experience any lasting or serious side effects. In most cases, it typically takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX are visible. The results typically last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule touch-up appointments at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center to maintain your results.
