Expressions such as laughing, smiling, and frowning can leave noticeable lines and wrinkles on the face. Smooth out those lines with Botox® Cosmetic, a simple and non-surgical procedure that dramatically reduces the deepest wrinkles in days. Botox Cosmetic has been widely tested and is approved by the FDA. It is available for patients in the area of Lehigh Acres, Cape Coral, Punta Gorda and Fort Myers.
What is Botox®?
Botox Cosmetic is a naturally occurring, purified protein. When injected in tiny amounts into muscles, it allows them to relax. Botox has been used for years to treat medical problems such as muscle spasms in the face and neck, migraine headaches, and double vision. Most recently, the FDA approved its use for treatment of certain facial creases.
Botox® relaxes the muscles naturally. Within a few days, and for months afterwards, the facial creases that can make you look tense or aged are visibly smoothed. Because Botox Cosmetic doesn’t involve any surgical incisions, you can return to full activities immediately.
Is Botox® Painful?
The amount of Botox injected at each location is miniscule, so discomfort is minimal. Various methods numb the treatment area, including topical anesthetic creams and ice. Most patients compare the sensation to a mild bug bite, and are usually surprised at how little discomfort they experience.
Is Botox® Expensive?
Compared to other cosmetic treatments, Botox is amazingly affordable.

Botox® for Hyperhidrosis
Botox can also be used to treat excessive underarm sweating. Through injections of Botox into the underarms, patients see a significant decrease in the amount of sweating.
A topical numbing medication can be applied prior to treatment. A special test is then performed to determine the areas of the underarms that produce the most perspiration. The Botox is then injected into these areas.
Additionally, we use Botox® in our Cape Coral Office to treat sweaty hands. It’s injected into the hands in a close-knit pattern, and the effects typically last for years.
What Can I Expect After Botox Treatment?
Patients can return to full activities immediately following treatment. Best of all, after just one treatment in office, patients notice results lasting up to six months!
With just a few Botox injections, your facial muscles relax and patients notice improvements over several months. To schedule your consultation, contact us today! We treat men and women living in Cape Coral, Punta Gorda, Lehigh Acres, and Fort Myers, FL.
