One of the most common procedures performed in the office is the injection of BOTOX®. The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin is a non-surgical injection that blocks nerve impulses to the muscles that cause frown lines and wrinkles. This leaves the skin with a smoother, more refreshed, youthful appearance. The needle used is very small, the procedure takes a few minutes, and the results are immediate. Your new look will last for about 3-6 months.
There are also interesting studies that have shown other uses for BOTOX®. Some studies indicate that early treatment may help prevent frown lines from forming. There are also studies that indicate BOTOX® can help with excessive sweating if injected in the underarm area. Dr. Gerstle may also inject BOTOX® in areas where migraine headaches are triggered in order to evaluate a patient’s candidacy for surgical treatment of migraines.
Dr. Gerstle’s knowledge of head and neck anatomy means that he is skilled at understanding what can give you the best result. Therefore, he performs these treatments personally.
If you think any of these treatments might be for you, call Dr. Gerstle to set up a consultation at (859) 279-2111.

What our patients are saying…
I have had nothing but a positive experience with Dr. Gerstle and the office staff. His demeanor and bedside manor are positive, thorough, attentive, flexible, and personal. When I had my consultation with Dr. Gerstle for facial asymmetry due to my neurofibromatosis, I was so pleased with how it went. For the first time I felt confident that the results I had always wanted could be achieved. I was overjoyed with the results after my surgery. Dr. Gerstle also went over and beyond to help me and accommodate my post-op visits with my work schedule. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.
