Frown lines and brow creases can drastically alter your appearance, adding age and leaving you looking worn and worried. Botox® treatments smooth the forehead area with one simple injection that provides long lasting results. Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers Botox® treatment to patients in Nashville, Brentwood, Hendersonville and the surrounding areas in Tennessee.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is an affordable method in creating a more youthful appearance to one’s face. Botox® Cosmetic, or botulinum toxin type A, is injected under the skin in the areas surrounding the eyes, forehead and/or mouth to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. It works by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a chemical that is released by the skin’s nerve cells that causes wrinkles.
At Plastic Surgery Affiliates, Dr. Hueneke is experienced in administering Botox® in TN, and welcomes new patients interested in Nashville Botox®, Brentwood Botox® or Hendersonville Botox® to come in for a personal consultation. Dr. Hueneke is one of the only plastic surgeons in Nashville to administer all Botox® injections himself.
How is Botox® Performed in Nashville?
In Tennessee, Botox® is administered through a series of small injections with a tiny needle just below the skin. Dr. Hueneke will mark your treatment site with a marking pencil before the injection. Keep in mind the injection point is where the muscle contracts, not necessarily on the wrinkle itself. An antiseptic is applied to the area before the procedure, which typically lasts no more than 10 minutes.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox® in Nashville?
Anyone looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles may be a good candidate for Nashville Botox®, Brentwood Botox® or Hendersonville Botox®, as it’s completely safe with minimal complications. But you don’t need to be suffering from crow’s feet to benefit from the treatment. Tennessee Botox® can also help patients suffering from hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). For more information, Botox® patients in Nashville, Brentwood and Hendersonville are invited to call our offices to learn more about the popular procedure.
Recovery from Botox®
There are few, if any side effects of botulinum toxin type A, so patients can typically resume normal activities immediately. Common side effects may include headache, nausea, flu-like symptoms and redness or pain at the injection site, and your doctor may advise you to stay out of the sun.
In addition, some Botox® patients report muscle weakness or a droopy upper eyelid, but this typically goes away on its own in a few days. If you have received Botox® in Nashville, Brentwood, Hendersonville or the surrounding areas and are experiencing unusual or persistent side effects, please consult with your doctor.
What are the Typical Results of Receiving Nashville Botox®?
Botox® patients are happy to have that angry or frowning look disappear from their face with this treatment. In addition, wrinkles are typically reduced by 80 percent, giving you a more youthful and refreshed appearance. To see the incredible results for yourself, browse our gallery of Nashville Botox® before and after photos.
Patients can expect to see results in two to five days, which last anywhere from three to six months. Although Botox® is a quick, easy and effective procedure, we recommend you take a look at the Nashville Botox® before and after photos before deciding if Botox® is truly right for you.
After Botox® Treatment
Following your Botox® injection, it is important you do not lie down or massage the muscles it was injected into for at least four hours. This will ensure that Botox® stays where it is supposed to so that you achieve the maximum benefits from it. Dr. Hueneke may recommend you perform certain facial exercises after that time to prevent the muscles from becoming too stiff.
