The appeal of looking younger is universal. Ever since neurotoxin treatments such as Botox came on the market, interest has steadily increased. Botox is an effective, affordable, and minimally invasive way to turn back the hands of time. At Miami Skin and Vein, Dr. Patel and his expertly trained staff can deliver precise injections to ensure that your results are natural-looking.
Botox is a neuromodulator, which means that it blocks nerve signals. These signals sent from the brain cause the muscles of the face to contract. When patients receive Botox injections, the muscles of the face are relaxed resulting in a younger appearance.
While the injections are effective, they require a skilled hand. Chances are you’ve seen someone that has a “frozen” look. This happens because the person administering the injection does not have a complete understanding of the anatomy of facial muscles. It is important that any provider administering Botox allows the patient to retain the ability to make natural facial expressions. Too much medication will not allow the facial muscles to move properly.
Results from Botox can last several months. Patients who wish to maintain results long term can schedule maintenance sessions. Dr. Patel will work with you to come up with a treatment plan that fits your needs and schedule.
Dr. Patel is an experienced injector and cosmetic dermatologist who is known in the Miami area for helping his patients achieve soft, gradual and natural results with a variety of anti-aging treatments. Patients who are interested in Botox are encouraged to visit for an initial consultation to determine if they are a good candidate and to have any questions answers. In addition to neurotoxin treatments, Dr. Patel may suggest dermal fillers, which can address sagging skin and loss of volume on the face.
