If you are looking for BOTOX® in Miami, look no further than Miami Beach Laser and Aesthetics. BOTOX® Cosmetic (Botulinum Toxin Type A) temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe facial wrinkles in adults. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes facial wrinkles. It works by blocking the nerve impulse that controls muscle movement, thereby restricting the ability to contract the facial muscles. BOTOX® does not affect the nerves responsible for sensation, so there is no numbness in the treated areas. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet, with results lasting up to 4 months. Schedule an appointment at our office for Miami BOTOX®.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
Does BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
How long does the treatment take?
Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatments for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes.
Will I experience any side effects?
It’s unlikely that you’ll develop any significant side effects, but you may notice slight bruising where BOTOX® Cosmetic was injected. This is only temporary and can be covered by makeup. The most common side effects are headache, respiratory infection, flu syndrome, temporary eyelid droop, and nausea.
