The natural process of facial aging can cause you to develop unwanted facial wrinkles. Areas that experience repetitive movements, such as around the eyes and along the forehead, are more likely to experience collagen breakdown quicker. A decrease of collagen in your tissues can rob you of the supple, youthful skin you desire. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable non-surgical procedure preformed by Dr. Perez-Gurri in Miami, that can soften and diminish the appearance of wrinkles.
Crow’s feet are the fine lines or wrinkles that develop along the outer edge of the eyes. Also known as smile lines, they are one of the first signs of aging that many people develop and can be easily treated through routine BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments.
Forehead lines are horizontal creases that develop between the hairline and your brows. Forehead lines can become more pronounced as you express yourself, which can unnecessarily age your appearance, even when you are at your happiest.
Brow lines develop between the eyebrows, and may also be referred to as frown lines. Brow lines often become exacerbated when you are upset or as you begin to experience brow droop when you get older.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a facial enhancing procedure, and it cannot change the way you look. An injectable treatment can soften or diminish the appearance of wrinkles, but it won’t alter the shape or contours of your face. Every patient has their individual needs, and BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments should be tailored to address them. Your skin elasticity and depth of wrinkles will impact the amount, frequency, or viability of your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments.
You can experience bruising and redness of the injection areas for up to 48 hours. You can resume your regular activities immediately, but shouldn’t plan major events within two weeks of your procedure. You should begin to notice a relaxation of the facial muscles within four to seven days with results lasting anywhere between four and six months.
A fine needle is used to inject BOTOX® Cosmetic, and it doesn’t leave any scarring.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is priced per vial. Multiple vials may be needed per treatment. A detailed quote is provided during your consultation to determine your needs.
You may experience a slight pinching sensation during the injection, but most people find this tolerable. There is minimal, if any, pain during the recovery.
Most treatments are quick, in-office visits, lasting between 15 and 20 minutes.
No. Routine injections are required to maintain the quality of your results. Most patients achieve results that last between four and six months, but results lasting up to eight months may happen.
No. While treatments cannot permanently stop the effects of time, most patients don’t see a significant worsening of their wrinkles when they stop BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments.
BOTOX® Cosmetic has relatively few side effects. However, there have been reported cases of headaches, swelling, and bruising following treatment. While rare, BOTOX® Cosmetic may spread and can cause temporary drooping of the surrounding muscles—this is temporary.
