Botox® Cosmetic Treatments
The use of wrinkle relaxers like Botox® has steadily increased over the last two decades and today are one of the most commonly performed cosmetic treatments in the world. However, most patients, at least the ones we see in Miami, do not know how Botox works.

Today, more than ever, aesthetic physicians have the tools needed to provide natural looking and aesthetically pleasing results without surgery and with minimal downtime. We are essentially able to freeze the aging process.
