The most well-known and popular dermal filler treatment, Botox® has established its excellent reputation through years of use and many patients who swear by it. Stubborn lines, wrinkles, and creases may be effectively diminished after an injection treatment.
Our Miami weight loss doctors are serving Botox and our other services in to our South Miami patients and surrounding areas. Those include Palmetto Bay, Old Cutler, Coral Gables, Kendall and Doral although we see patients from all over.
Botox® is a dermal filler treatment, injected via a fine needle, which restores a youthful appearance to the skin, and is regularly used to minimize fine lines and wrinkles that result from the process of aging. Also called Botulinum toxin type A, Botox® is produced from a refined bacterium and works by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles, giving skin a smoother, firmer and more youthful appearance.
Botox® has maintained its popularity because patients have found that the treatments have given consistent benefits such as increased self-esteem, temporary filling of wrinkles, creases and fine lines, treatment of migraine headaches, alleviation of overactive bladder symptoms and the treatment of increased underarm perspiration.
Anyone seeking a more youthful appearance may be a good candidate for Botox® treatment. Research has found that this is an excellent preventative treatment for younger skin to ward off wrinkles as you age. It is also an appropriate treatment for mature skin that has lost its elasticity and firmness. If you are unhappy with the presence of wrinkles, creases, and fine lines, Botox® may be your solution.
Botox® is administered by injection using a very thin, fine-gauge syringe. The number of injections required for each treatment depends on the number and severity of wrinkles, creases, and fine lines. In most cases, a single treatment, performed in our office, lasts about four to six months, and patients regularly return for ongoing treatments. Over time, the facial muscles become retrained, and patients require fewer follow-up treatments.
When scheduling your Botox® consultation with A NEW YOU, please let us know if you have received any other injections over the prior four months, as well as whether you take certain medications, such as aspirin and other blood thinners, allergy medications, sleep aids, NSAIDS, or muscle relaxers. You may have to temporarily suspend medications while receiving Botox® treatments.
