Patients visit our office all of the time with the desire to look younger. With Botox, Coral Gables residents have an affordable and minimally invasive way to take years off of their appearance.
As we age, the muscles in our face lose the ability to fully relax and form the dynamic wrinkles that become permanent fixtures on our face. Botox is most commonly used to address fine lines and wrinkles on the upper half of the face although it can also be used on the lower face and for other issues such as:,
- Excessive sweating
- Eye twitches
Candidates for Botox include adults of 18 years and older and in good physical and mental health. During your initial consultation, the doctor will want to learn more about your expectations for treatment and review your medical history, in addition to performing a physical examination. It is important to discuss your motivation for Botox treatments and for our team to understand your desired results. Botox does not eliminate wrinkles permanently. It is a temporary solution that works to block the nerve signals that cause the muscles in the face to contract. The result is smoother skin and fewer fine lines and wrinkles.
Most patients will notice a reduction in wrinkles 3-14 days after the treatment , and these Botox results generally last 3 to 4 months. Treatments will need to be repeated to maintain a reduction in wrinkles long-term.
Botox injections can usually be completed in less than twenty minutes. Patients are free to return to normal daily activities immediately. Side effects from Botox may include minor swelling and bruising near the treated area and can be controlled with ice packs.
