Cosmetic Botox Injections in Tampa, FL

What Is Botox and How Does It Work?

A Botox injectable treatment works to relax the facial muscles responsible for causing the wrinkling and the visible signs of aging. A single treatment alone can target problem areas to create a natural and youthful appearance. When injected into face and neck muscles, Botox injectables temporarily relax muscles, which soften wrinkles and fine lines and reduces the pulled-down, drooping appearance. Patients can typically expect a reduction of 80% of wrinkles that can last for up to 4 months.

The straightforward process lasts just 20 minutes on average, and following the treatment, patients can return to daily activities. Botox is a short-term treatment that requires multiple visits, depending on what the patient is attempting to achieve.

 

Benefits of having Botox Injections

Wrinkle Reduction

A botox treatment keeps facial areas such as the brows, crow’s feet, and smile lines perky and wrinkle-free.

Restore a Youthful Appearance

A highly effective injectable for reducing the signs of aging and restoring a youthful appearance.

Lift the Brow

Botox treatments can be used to lift the brow, reversing drooping that makes the face look tired.

Minimize Migraines

Botox is proven to help minimize migraines because of a blockage to the sensory nerves that send pain messages to the brain.

No Downtime

The non-surgical treatment has virtually no downtime, and most patients fit it into their daily activities.

 

How Much Do Botox Injectables Cost?

The cost of a Botox injectable treatment varies based on the amount of work necessary and the area of concern. The number of required units will vary from person to person.

 

How Is a Botox Procedure Performed?

Today, there are three non-surgical and non-biological treatment options that candidates should consider as a viable option for treating wrinkles and fine lines: Juvederm® Restylane®, and Radiesse®

  • Juvederm is an injectable used to fill out fine to deep wrinkles to ultimately create a fuller, youthful appearance. The gel filler is injected into the middle to deep subsurface skin layers, plumping the skin for a natural and youthful appearance.
  • Restylane® was created specifically to be compatible with the body’s chemistry, minimizing the chance of an adverse reaction. Like Juvederm, this injectable is placed in the sub-dermal region, and results can last up to 6 months.
  • Radiesse ® works a little differently to the two counterparts. The injectable is applied below the surface to create a new framework to support the skin. In addition to adding volume, this injectable also helps to stimulate the production of collagen, giving the face a fuller, more vibrant appearance. Radiesse ® is a bit firmer (lasting about 1-2 years); therefore, it may not be the best choice for every patient.

The Botox procedure itself is relatively simple. A numbing cream is applied to the target area to minimize discomfort before a thin needle injects tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into the skin or muscles. The number of injections needed depends on the extent of the area being treated.

Who is a Candidate for Botox Injections?

A Botox treatment is an ideal non-surgical option for anyone who would like to reverse any unattractive line or wrinkle on the face that is causing the face to look pulled down. The treatment is most often focused on facial areas such as lip lines, crow’s feet, cheeks, and jowls but can also be used on the neck and chest lines.

Candidates should also have realistic expectations about the results following a Botox treatment. Botox injectable is not intended to eliminate all wrinkle lines, but instead significantly soften lines. Intense facial drooping can also be hard to rectify with Botox injectables alone, unlikely to provide significant elevation.

 

What Areas Can Botox Treat?

Botox can be performed on many areas, but the most popular treated are the forehead glabellar area, crow’s feet around the sides of the eyes, smile lines, and worry lines that typically show horizontally across the forehead.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

1) When Will I Able to See the Botox Treatment Results?

Although a visible improvement will be noticed almost immediately, patients can expect the full effect of the Botox to be seen after one week. At this time, significant softening and smoothing out of the wrinkles, and elevation of the overlying soft tissue will be seen.

2) How Long Does Botox Cosmetic Injection Last?

Botox is not a permanent wrinkle solution and, as such, repeat treatments are required for long-term results. Wrinkle smoothing will last for 3-4 months and will begin to subside by month 4 or 5.

2) How Often Should I Be Treated with a Botox Injection?

Our cosmetic center in Tampa Bay recommends that Botox treatments are repeated every 4-6 months or 2-3 times per year. This will vary from area to area, and Dr. Egozi will help devise a thorough treatment plan for you to get the best results. Some areas (including upper lips lines and delicate regions) may require more frequent Botox injections every 2-3 months.

3) Who Should Not Use Botox?

It is essential to understand your aesthetic priorities and treatment goals and adequately align them with the benefits that Botox offers. While Botox is extremely effective in providing a temporary solution to wrinkles, to rectify intense facial drooping a facelift procedure is more beneficial. During your initial consultation, Dr. Egozi will listen to your goals and discuss your options to ensure overall success.
