INJECTABLES | BOTOX®
More women and men get BOTOX treatments at our Miami (Coral Gables) center than any other injectable or non-surgical cosmetic treatment we offer. BOTOX has become a household word, and a routine part of many people's beauty regimens. At our Miami dermatology practice, we have earned unique recognition from the manufacturer of BOTOX as our practice is among the top injectors of BOTOX worldwide. Our team was also instrumental in the FDA approval of this revolutionary product. We are not exaggerating when we say that few can match our level of experience with BOTOX and all of its uses.
BOTOX® The Gold Standard for Dynamic Wrinkles
The ideal placement of BOTOX injections produces a more youthful appearance by softening dynamic wrinkles – those caused by repeated facial expressions. The treatment involves injecting small amounts of the purified toxin into the tiny muscles responsible for the movements that create the lines and wrinkles. This relaxes the muscle, reducing the lines and wrinkles and producing smoother skin in the treated areas.
The most common treatment areas include:
- Vertical lines between the eyes
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow's feet
- Neck bands
Our team of board-certified dermatologists revolutionized cosmetic dermatology by expanding the traditional uses of BOTOX and its alternatives, Dysport® and XEOMIN®. Alongside Dr. Brandt they pioneered the use of these products for neck rejuvenation, and for the creation of a brow-lift effect. Highly skilled injectors may use BOTOX in other areas such as around the mouth, the chest, or jawline.
Only board-certified dermatologists inject BOTOX at our offices, and treatment is quick and comfortable. Your dermatologist will determine the ideal placement of the injections for optimal wrinkle correction. Then a tiny needle is used to inject the precise amount of BOTOX needed to achieve the desired result. Slight redness and swelling at the injection sites will fade within minutes, and you can go about your normal routine.
BOTOX results emerge over the course of 5 to 7 days, and tend to last 3 or 4 months. Studies have shown that regularly scheduled BOTOX treatments will produce prolonged results.
Although this is a common treatment, it is by no means simple or fool-proof. For predictable, natural looking results, you should trust only a highly trained, board-certified dermatologist with extensive experience and training in the use of this product.
