Is Botox safe?
While aging is inevitable, it is important that patients realize that there are many ways to slow the signs and to turn back time when wrinkles and fine lines develop on the face. At Greater Miami Skin and Laser Center we are excited to offer patients solutions of raging skin, including cosmetic injectables such as Botox.
How does Botox work?
Botox is actually a neuromodulator that was developed years ago to help in reducing muscle contractions. In medicine, it is used for the treatment of cervical dystonia, chronic migraines, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and even overactive bladder. Over time, doctors also began to notice another benefit of Botox—the smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Dynamic wrinkles on the face that are caused by muscle contractions can be treated with Botox injections in the surrounding muscles. Botox is a medication that can help smooth:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead folds
- Glabellar lines
Botox has been cleared by the FDA for both medical and cosmetic use, and continues to be a popular treatment requested for by name at Great Miami Skin and Laser Center.
How long do results last?
Patients come into the office of Drs. Martin Zaiac and Nardo Zaias to start with an evaluation. If it is determined that a patient is a good fit for Botox, injections will be done right in the treatment room. After a few days, patients will notice significant improvement in the areas of concern, and reinjection is often not needed until about six to nine months after the original treatment. Maintaining the results requires patients to undergo injections regularly, or wrinkles and folds will reappear with time.
