BOTOX® Cosmetic and fillers are different types of injectables used for facial rejuvenation. BOTOX® Cosmetic helps the skin look smooth by relaxing the muscle under a wrinkle or line. Fillers, on the other hand, add volume below the surface of the skin to enhance features and fill in visible signs of aging.
At Miami Skin & Vein, we believe that a comprehensive approach to rejuvenation is best. Often, the most impressive results happen when several treatments are used together. In this way, it’s possible to address all the aesthetic concerns that you may have.
Your face shape may seem entirely out of your control.

The outcome of any BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment depends heavily on the skill of the injector and the technique used. Where your provider places the wrinkle-relaxing product and how much they administer can be the difference between looking natural and looking slightly stiff. With this in mind, many patients are seeking out “micro-BOTOX” or “Baby BOTOX” to achieve a subtle and refreshed look. Keep reading to learn all about this popular new injection technique.

At Miami Skin & Vein, we utilize Dysport injections to treat a variety of cosmetic concerns, including enlarged masseter muscles. The masseter muscle is located on the side of the face and connects the lower cheek to the jaw. This muscle often becomes enlarged due to excessive teeth grinding. This can disrupt the contours of your lower face and cause facial asymmetry.
In this video, Dr. Shaun Patel explains how Dysport can be used to treat enlarged masseter muscles to slim the appearance of your lower face.
