With Kristy’s expertise, our in-office BOTOX treatment leaves patients feeling refreshed and confident.
West Palm Beach
BOTOX in West Palm Beach is the ideal non-surgical way to treat facial lines and wrinkles that develop due to the natural aging process. It’s designed to temporarily take years off of your appearance, while restoring a more relaxed and pleasant expression.
What Skin Issues can West Palm Beach BOTOX Address?
Our West Palm Beach BOTOX works by temporarily paralyzing the underlying muscles that cause deep lines and facial wrinkles. When performed correctly, it has the ability to improve the appearance of:
- Wrinkles around the eyes. Years of squinting, laughing and making facial expressions will inevitably cause wrinkles to develop around the eyes. When this occurs, strategically placed BOTOX injections can smooth crow’s feet and other lines in this delicate area.
- Brow lines.BOTOX has the ability to smooth moderate to severe lines in between the eyes, making it a terrific non-surgical alternative to the brow lift.
- Forehead wrinkles. Prominent forehead wrinkles commonly emerge as the aging process progresses. When this occurs, BOTOX West Palm Beach can temporarily smooth these lines and creases, restoring a youthful forehead that you can still move freely.
- Wrinkles around the mouth. So called “smoker’s lines” are often due to a hyperactive muscle encircling the mouth. With the use of BOTOX in West Palm Beach, these lines can be vastly improved and, if used early enough, they may be entirely prevented.
Dr. White prides himself on providing some of the best BOTOX West Palm Beach has available anywhere and doing so consistently and to the results you are aiming for.

Benefits of BOTOX Injections
There are many benefits associated with BOTOX injections – especially when they are performed by a vastly experienced cosmetic professional, like our advanced registered nurse practitioner, Kristy Levin. They include:
- Natural results
- A quick, virtually pain-free treatment
- A dramatic improvement in lines and wrinkles
If you are looking for any of these benefits, BOTOX injections from Palm Beach Facial Plastic Surgery is the thing for you. Dr. Murphy prides himself in providing some of the best BOTOX results available anywhere.
What to Expect During your BOTOX Injections in West Palm Beach
When you first arrive at our office for your West Palm Beach BOTOX injections, Kristy will have you sit in a reclining chair so she can evaluate your facial wrinkles and anatomy. This allows her to determine exactly where to place the injections so that the medication can improve the appearance of your lines, while ensuring a natural appearance.
To begin your actual injections, Kristy will place a topical anesthetic if you prefer. From there, she will strategically inject the BOTOX directly into the underlying muscles that are causing your wrinkles, temporarily paralyzing them and encouraging your lines to fade away. Throughout this process, she will take special care to ensure that your resulting expression always looks naturally youthful and refreshed – never “frozen.”
Although every patient will have a unique experience, in most cases our West Palm Beach BOTOX injections take approximately ten minutes. At that point, you’ll be able to resume your normal daily routine right away without any restrictions. In terms of side effects, the most common one is very minor bruising where the injections were placed. However, this will disappear very quickly and can be easily covered with makeup in the meantime.
In most cases, our BOTOX patients begin to see a noticeable improvement in as little as 48 hours, with the full results emerging in approximately twelve days. Depending on the severity of your wrinkles, the results can endure anywhere from two to four months, at which point you will require repeat injections to maintain your smooth and youthful new look.

How Does BOTOX Work?
BOTOX inhibits the muscles from contracting just below the skin. Those muscles cause the skin to form lines and wrinkles around your mouth, nose and eyes as well as on your forehead.
When Will I Notice the Benefits of BOTOX?
Within the first 48 hours to several days after the injection the muscles of the treated areas will relax and the lines in those areas will soften.
Is There Any Downtime Involved in Getting BOTOX?
Not necessarily, you should be able to get BOTOX and then continue on with your day as usual with minimal inconvenience or discomfort.
Is BOTOX safe?
BOTOX has been studied and used for over two decades, is used in 70 different countries, with no reports of long-term safety concerns.
How Long Will it Take to Get BOTOX?
Depending on how many lines, wrinkles and creases are being smoothed with BOTOX, your treatment could take anywhere from ten minutes to half an hour.
Will My Face Look Frozen?
The results of BOTOX should look natural. It is advised that these injections are performed by a top-level injector – never choose a cut-rate BOTOX treatment.
Is There a Rebound Effect When BOTOX Wears Off?
BOTOX tends to wear off with minimal effects, the muscles in your face return to normal and the wrinkles will start to reform.
Will My Friends Know I Did BOTOX?
If done professionally with a trusted practitioner, then the effects should be natural-looking instead of giving a stiff or frozen appearance which others might notice. It is all in the skills of the injector.
How Long Does BOTOX Last?
The effects of BOTOX last anywhere from 2 to 4 months. This can be prolonged with multiple treatments and planning ahead with your practitioner.
What’s the Ideal Age to Start Using BOTOX?
Depending on your lifestyle and skin type, the ideal age to start BOTOX is between 35 to 40 years of age. The use of BOTOX at the first sign of wrinkles prevents the muscles in the face from creating lines that are etched into your face.
How Much Does BOTOX Cost?
BOTOX typically costs $10 per unit and depending on the area or areas being treated the number of units necessary can determined. Average cost of treatment is in the range of $350 to $500.
Does BOTOX Have Side Effects?
