BOTOX® Treatments at Latour Skin Care Center in Franklin, TN
BOTOX® is a safe and effective medication used to eliminate facial wrinkles and frown lines in the brow, forehead and crow’s feet by decreasing the movement of the muscles in these areas. BOTOX® can brighten up your attitude and outlook, remove the wrinkles of time or make small improvements in an otherwise perfect face. BOTOX® has also been used successfully for patients with excessive sweating in the armpits, hands or feet.
All BOTOX® injections are administered at our Franklin, TN office — conveniently located just outside Nashville & Brentwood – near Cool Springs Mall.
BOTOX® is specially formulated with a purified protein, which relaxes the muscles when injected in the targeted area, ultimately reducing the appearance of frown lines and facial wrinkles. It is a minimally invasive procedure, allowing patients to return to normal daily activities immediately following the procedure. A topical anesthesia can be used, if necessary. FDA approved, BOTOX® is a safe and effective procedure that provides patients with results that can last anywhere from 3-5 months on average.
Following the BOTOX® procedure it is not uncommon to experience some minor swelling, redness or bruising around the targeted site. Patients can take Tylenol and/or use ice packs to help reduce swelling and relieve any discomfort. Other side effects include drooping of the eyelid, nausea, headache and respiratory infection, but only occur in about 1% of patients. They are considered temporary and usually resolve themselves within a few weeks.
