Botox Injection Therapy
Palm Beach

One of the most popular procedures for rejuvenating the face...

... involves the use of Botulinum A Toxin (BOTOX). Used in very tiny amounts, it has made many relaxed and happy people.

BOTOX was originally characterized for the treatment of eye muscle spasms. A Canadian couple - an ophthalmologist noticed that the wrinkles in the skin overlying the sites injected with the medicine had relaxed. She, along with her husband, a dermatologist, opened the door for today's cosmetic use of BOTOX.


Dr. Rao learned under a direct protege of that couple, Jean and Alastair Carruthers, and has been performing Botox (c) injections for over 23 years - very few doctors have that much experience! This results in the optimal cosmetic result. 

For the best results, you have to use the best.

When combined with peels, proper skin care, and fillers if needed, the synergistic result with Botox(c) is truly amazing - basically, you get a nonsurgical facelift - all done in the office, no anesthesia needed AND minimal downtime. Yes, you can go on that cruise, honeymoon, or high school reunion in a week, looking more youthful and energetic!

Last but not least, UPY is the ONLY place where you can get feeling younger from the inside-out and outside-in!

Overactive facial muscles around the eyes and lower forehead may give the person an angry, tired, or displeased appearance, even when they are not experiencing that emotion.

Professional use of BOTOX can lead to a more relaxed yet still expressive face. Treatment typically lasts from 2-5 months and will require regular treatment. Regular use will prolong the interval by keeping the muscles relaxed. And, fillers will last longer.

"Not being able to make exaggerated age-related wrinkles, people "fall out of" the habit of creating them. You won't look tired, aged, sad, or mad to others, when that really isn't you, right?! They will see a more relaxed, youthful you and wonder what you did on your vacation?" - Dr. Chris Rao.



In a simple office procedure, Botox is injected using a fine needle in the overactive muscles. The muscle function becomes weakened, eliminating part or all of its function. Long-standing skin creases will soften and may eventually disappear. The result is a softer, more relaxed, and pleasant appearance.

The procedure takes about 20 minutes. You may return to work immediately; however, you should avoid exercise for 4 hours or massaging the area; you will be provided pre- and post-procedural instructions.

The full effect takes several days to develop. Once the over-dynamic muscles are relaxed, the results may last 3 to 6 months. In some cases, the initial therapy may not achieve the optimal cosmetic result, and we will provide a free touch-up visit - you only pay for the Botox units used. Most patients require less frequent injections over time as the muscles "retrain" or weaken from disuse.

The most common side-effects can include mild swelling at the injection site, headache, localized numbness, bruising, rash, and temporary loss of function of a nearby muscle (e.g. drooping lid).
