Also known as botulinum toxin type A, BOTOX® is an FDA-approved injectable substance that has been proven to treat wrinkles. By blocking the release of acetylcholine a wrinkle-causing chemical released by our nerve cells. Botox® is able to paralyze the muscle, stop the contraction and, in effect, erase the wrinkle.
The Botox® procedures are generally short and painless. It is performed in your doctor’s office by a highly trained and expert technician and should only take a few minutes. Our technician or doctor will use a very fine needle to inject the diluted botulinum toxin type A solution into the targeted facial muscles. Once the Botox® takes effect, your facial muscles will be relaxed and wrinkle-free, leaving you with a fresh, rejuvenated appearance. Read more about Botox.
Reasons for considering Botox®
If you’re unhappy with the look of your facial wrinkles but you’re not yet ready to go under the knife, Botox® may be the perfect solution for you. Botox® is helpful in reducing the appearance of forehead creases, crow’s feet and laugh lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth. In addition, Botox® has been approved to treat the following disorders:
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Dystonia (muscle spasms)
- Jaw tension
- Chronic pain
- Lazy eye
- Uncontrolled blinking
How is the procedure performed? What is the recovery process?
Often referred to as a lunchtime procedure, Botox® patients experience very little down time. Once you’ve had your injection, you’re able to resume normal daily activities immediately. There are no incisions, bandages or anything of the like, and side effects are typically limited to some minor bruising and headaches. We advise you to refrain from laying down for four hours or rubbing the treated area for at least 12 hours after the procedure, as this could cause the solution to migrate to other areas of the body.
Our patients report phenomenal results, with their skin looking younger and more supple following the injection. Botox® is not a permanent fix, however. While results last between four and six months, the treated muscles will eventually regain their ability to contract and the wrinkles will reappear. So you may need to have a follow-up injection at this point.
Because each patient has different needs when it comes to treatment areas, Botox® prices may vary. We recommend calling our offices at 561.776.9555 to set up your initial consultation, where one of our surgeons or expert injector can assess your specific needs and discuss average prices. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the procedure.
One of the key drivers of the price of Botox is the price per unit . At the Estetica Institute, we work to make our treatments more accessible to more patients, and that means keeping prices reasonable. We offer the lowest price per unit in South Florida for BOTOX®.

Similar to Botox, Dysport is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that treats forehead and frown lines by paralyzing the wrinkle-causing muscles. Like Botox, Dysport also known as Reloxin is derived from botulinum toxin type A, but it has been known to act quicker and last longer than its predecessor.
At Estetica Institute of the Palm Beaches, Dysport injections are one of our most popular procedures, and our trained technicians are highly skilled and meticulous.

Am I A Good Candidate For Dysport?
If you’re unhappy with frown lines, deep creases in the forehead or other unsightly wrinkles on the face, Dysport may be the perfect solution. Most of our patients are between the ages of 30 and 65, and the procedure works on both men and women. Dysport is not for everyone, however. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or if you have a neuromuscular disease, you may not be a suitable candidate for this treatment. Please discuss your medical history with your doctor before electing to have this procedure.
How is the procedure performed? What is the recovery process?
During this relatively painless procedure, one of our expert injectors (link) will inject the Dysport solution directly into the treatment area using a tiny needle. The treatment takes place in the doctor’s office, and it should take no longer than 15 – 20 minutes. You’ll be able to resume your normal daily activities immediately. While this procedure requires no downtime, Dysport patients are advised to avoid exercising, lying down or rubbing the treatment area for at least four hours. If you experience any swelling or bruising, this can be treated with an ice pack. Otherwise, you’re able to go about your daily activities immediately following the injections.
What are the results of Dysport?
Most of our Dysport patients report a rapid response, seeing a decline in facial wrinkles as soon as 24 hours after the injections. Another perk of this treatment is that it can last up to six months, compared to the three-month time frame that Botox offers. But to truly gain an understanding of what Dysport procedures in Palm Beach can do for you, we suggest looking through some Dysport before and after photos.
