How Does BOTOX(R) Work?

*Individual results may vary.

Many patients are initially skeptical that BOTOX(R) from Fort Lauderdale plastic surgeon Dr. Jon Harrell can achieve the dramatic facial rejuvenation we promise. Fortunately, decades of experience with the procedure have made clear that BOTOX(R) is safe and exceptionally effective.

Dr. Harrell believes strongly in the importance of clear communication with all of his patients. This means explaining the details of procedures, including BOTOX(R) treatments, so that you’re comfortable with your treatment plan.

BOTOX(R) is a medically engineered compound that removes signs of age and wear, especially wrinkles, from your face. Wrinkles are essentially the products of muscle contractions in your face. Those contractions occur on the orders of the nerves in the treatment area.

When our Fort Lauderdale plastic surgeon injects BOTOX(R) into the treatment area, the compound works by blocking the nerves in the area from communicating with the muscles. This prevents your muscles from receiving the necessary signals and contracting. And when your muscles don’t contract, wrinkles don’t form.

Over the course of a few months, this dynamic will slowly wear off and you’ll require another BOTOX(R) injection. Dr. Harrell will explain how long you can expect your treatment to last and work with you to arrange an injection schedule that’s appropriate for your needs.
