While Dr. McDaniel does not himself treat patients with Botox, this has nothing to do with any concern over its safety or effectiveness. Used properly, this remarkable product can safely and effectively reduce wrinkles and frown lines caused by overactivity of facial muscles.
The sites of best utility of Botox are the glabella, the lateral malar area (“crows’ feet” lines), and horizontal forehead lines. While the fact that Botox only has an effect for 3-4 months after each injection may be frustrating, it is at the same time one of the best safety features of the medication. Because of its temporary nature, any allergic reaction or undesirable result that might occur rarely will end quickly.
Botox is paid for according to the number of units required to treat the area of need and, like most cosmetic procedures, is not reimbursable by Medicare or other third-party insurance providers. Our Nurse Practitioner, Nita Glover, has received extensive training in the proper techniques of Botox injection and has successfully performed hundreds of injections over the past two years.
