After years of success, Botox® cosmetic injections are now considered a staple in the treatment of those hard to tame wrinkles. Mayo Clinic-trained, board-certified Nashville plastic surgeon Chad Robbins, M.D., F.A.C.S., stops the formation of wrinkles in their tracks for residents in and around Nashville and Franklin with FDA-approved Botox®.
What is Botox®?
By far the most popular minimally invasive procedure used today, Botox® is an injectable that minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles which form as a natural part of aging. An injection of a clinical formula of Botulinum Toxin Type A, known as Botox® Cosmetic, makes it possible to immobilize selected muscles of a patient’s facial expression, creating a smoothing effect by preventing those deep expression lines and furrows, especially around the forehead and eye area.
The Benefits of Botox®
Many residents in or around Nashville and Franklin seek Botox® when other treatments do not supply the desired results of looking younger by reducing wrinkles and softening the skin. Botox® may be right for you if you would like one of the following outcomes:
- Semi-permanent smoothing of facial wrinkles.
- A more youthful appearance with softer skin.
- Temporary control of migraines.
- Elimination or prevention of wrinkles.
- Treatment of excessive underarm sweating.
Preparing for your Botox® Appointment
It is important to discuss with Dr. Robbins any prior procedures or injections over the last six months. Also discuss any medications you may be on, including aspirin for everyday pain relief. Dr. Robbins takes this information into consideration to determine the best plan possible for achieving optimal results.
The Effects of Botox®
Botox® is expertly administered by Dr. Robbins to the desired area with a very small needle producing very little discomfort. The effects of Botox® are immediate, providing satisfaction as soon as Dr. Robbins’ expert hands complete the injections. Botox® Cosmetic injections usually last about 3 to 4 months, and subsequent injections may be recommended to continue the effects. Treatments often become less frequent as the muscles weaken; becoming less inclined to form lines and creases.
The Cost of Botox® In Nashville
Skin rejuvenation treatments are considered to be elective procedures, so insurance providers won’t normally cover the cost of the procedure. One exception may be in the treatment of excessive sweating in the underarm area. To make Botox® treatments affordable and accessible, Dr. Robbins offers budget-friendly financing via CareCredit® to his clients. His office also accepts cash, personal checks, and major credit cards.
