Aging is inevitable, but looking and feeling your best shouldn’t have to be compromised! Many women and men struggle with common aesthetic concerns such as wrinkles and fine lines that are commonplace from aging, expressions, and other environmental factors and try to treat them with over-the-counter methods to no avail. Alternatively, many of the same people struggling concerns are deterred from more invasive methods like surgery. Fortunately, there are options for those seeking big results without the downtime, such as BOTOX.

What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is an FDA-approved neurotoxin injectable that is primarily used to temporarily relax muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the face. BOTOX is the most studied injectable treatment of its kind and has been used on millions of patients world-wide. Furthermore, despite many prospective patients being concerned that they will look fake or “frozen”, when used by a skilled injector, like our aesthetic professionals at 4Ever Young in Delray, results from treatment with BOTOX can look extremely natural. Treatment with BOTOX can be done in the following areas:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Frown Lines(between the eyebrows)
- Crow’s Feet
BOTOX is not just for women either! More and more men are reaping the benefits of looking young and feeling confident again from a single treatment.
While BOTOX is most commonly used for patients looking to treat signs of aging, it is also a great option for those looking to stop the aging process in its tracks. In the age of the selfie, more and more patients in their 20s and 30s are starting to get a jump start on preventative BOTOX treatments to stop the formation of “dynamic wrinkles” which are wrinkles that form from the constant use of muscles from certain expressions like frowning, looking surprised, etc. These lines can become permanent wrinkles over time, however, preventative treatment with BOTOX can slow the formation of such lines and wrinkles.*
Other Uses of BOTOX
Originally used for cosmetic purposes, practitioners have started to use BOTOX for a number of other purposes. At 4ever Young in Delray Beach we offer BOTOX for the following treatment services:
BOTOX for Hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common condition that many of our Delray patients have tried to combat with antiperspirants, over-the-counter treatments, and other methods to no avail. However, many people don’t know that BOTOX is a common and extremely effective treatment for excessive sweating as it can “freeze” the muscles that cause sweating in common problem areas like the underarms, palms, or feet.
BOTOX for TMJ(temporo-mandibular joint) disorders
TMJ(tempora-mandibular joint) disorders can be extremely uncomfortable, causing pain, lockjaw, difficulty eating, sleeping, and talking. For those who suffer with TMJ disorders, BOTOX can offer relief and minimize discomfort by relaxing the jaw muscles. The treatment takes under 30 minutes and requires no downtime. Patients usually start to notice relief within a few days but will notice the full effect of the treatment after about a week*.
What is BOTOX Treatment Like?
One of the main reasons our Delray patients love treatment with BOTOX cosmetic is because it is fast, safe, and comfortable! Before your treatment, we recommend avoiding alcohol, anti-inflammatory medications, and blood thinners to avoid possible bruising. When you arrive, one of our aesthetic providers will discuss the treatment with you and will address any questions and concerns you may have. We will then address your area(s) of concern and determine how many units of the product you will need to achieve optimal results. Your provider will then inject the product into the given treatment area(s). Most patients report that the injection process is comfortable and painless.
The entire process usually takes under fifteen minutes and patients are free to return to most normal activities immediately after treatment! Following your BOTOX treatment we ask that you don’t lie down for four hours and that you avoid rubbing or applying pressure to the area that was treated.
There is no downtime required after the treatment. Side effects, if present, are generally minimal, but can include bruising, redness, or tenderness at the injection site. However, any side effects generally subside within a few hours to days following treatment*.
At 4Ever Young we make it our goal to ensure that your entire treatment process is comfortable from start to finish.
What Results Can I Expect From BOTOX in Delray?*
In general, patients usually begin to see results from BOTOX Cosmetic a few days following their treatment. However, the most optimal results are seen 2 weeks after treatment*. Depending on the area(s) treated and the amount of product used, results from treatment with BOTOX can last anywhere from 3-6 months. At this time, we recommend returning to our Delray Beach location to maintain your results.
BOTOX can also be combined with our other many aesthetic treatments including fillers, chemical peels, and other skin care procedures to give you comprehensive results that leave you looking your best. During your consultation we will talk with you about all of your options to help you achieve optimal, natural-looking, and lasting results.
BOTOX vs. Dysport
At 4Ever Young in Delray Beach we offer both BOTOX and Dysport as part of cosmetic injectables. Both BOTOX and Dysport contain Botulinum Toxin A and relax muscles to smooth wrinkles and lines. BOTOX and Dysport are used to treat the same areas and concerns and are both safe, effective products that don’t require downtime.
The main differences between BOTOX and Dysport:
- Time on the market: BOTOX was FDA-approved in 2002 for aesthetic purposes; Dysport was FDA-approved in 2009.
- Number of units: More units of Dysport are needed because the molecule size of the product is smaller than that of BOTOX
- Onset time: In general, patients tend to see a faster onset time with Dysport. Initial results from BOTOX tend to be noticeable 4-7 days after treatment, whereas results with Dysport are onset about 2-5 after.
Depending on your individual treatment goals, one of our providers may recommend either BOTOX or Dysport during your consultation.
