What is Botox® Miami? 

Botox® is a drug that is used to paralyze facial muscles temporarily. The drug is prepared from the bacterial toxin botulin, which can block nerve endings and relax muscles. In doing so, this helps reduce wrinkles caused by taught muscles and other undesirable skin conditions by helping to relax contracted muscles that are causing the skin to bunch together in patients. 

What Type of Person is a Good Candidate for Botox® in Miami? 

As long as you are over the age of 18, you can be a good candidate for Botox®. You can consider treatment if you have no underlying health conditions. Patients who want to look younger and have a more youthful appearance are the best candidates. Here are the pre-conditions you may need before botox therapy:

Skin Is Moderately Elastic

Those over the age of 80 may not be eligible for Botox® because their skin isn’t elastic enough. The skin must have some elasticity before you can receive the treatment. Light wrinkling is fine, although deep grooves can also be treated. Elderly patients with deeply sagging skin won’t benefit much from Botox® injections. 

Not Pregnant Or Nursing

A majority of doctors recommend that pregnant and breastfeeding patients avoid Botox® therapy. This is so that the Botox® toxins cannot reach the nursing child through breast milk. The impact of botulinum toxin in breast milk is currently unknown.

In Good Health 

Some medical conditions can prevent some people receiving Botox®, such as those suffering from neurological diseases and immunocompromised patients . If you are on an immunosuppressant with normal white blood cell counts, then you may be able to get Botox® with your doctor’s recommendations since there is less risk. 

How Do Botox® Injections work? 

Botox® injections work by blocking specific chemical signals fired off from nerve endings. These are typically chemical signals that are used to make muscles contract. When Botox® injections are placed around facial muscles that are contracted, this helps them relax lines. Contracted muscles that are tense tend to cause wrinkles in the skin. This can be from stress, tension, frequent frowning, and other chronic muscle activity. Once Botox® is injected, these muscles are unable to contract because of the botulin toxin. Botox® doesn’t last forever and is a temporary solution. The wrinkles begin to soften and also relax because the muscles attached to the skin and its lines have been inhibited. The effects of Botox® begin within three to four days after the initial injection. Most results are fully seen after ten to fourteen days in Miami, Fl. 

How Long Does Botox® Last? 

On average, Botox® will last anywhere between three to four months for a patient. In some cases, Botox® treatments can last as little as two months, while others may see their treatment last up to six months. This depends on the following factors:

Physical Activity

If you hit the gym often and experience excessive sweating, you will notice that your Botox® cosmetic treatment won’t last as long and may need more frequent updates. This is because your body eventually breaks down the botulin toxin and your nerve endings regenerate. When new nerve endings are created, the muscles in the target areas will begin to contract again. 

Depth Of Wrinkles

How deep your wrinkles are can also impact how long your Botox® therapy lasts. For example, if you only correct fine lines in your treatment session, you can expect the Botox® to last longer compared to deeper wrinkles. Over time, wrinkles with deep grooves will begin to show up sooner in treated areas, requiring an additional procedure.

Metabolic Level

Everyone’s body metabolizes chemicals at a different rate, which is why your Botox® therapy will last a completely different amount of time compared to someone else with the same treatment. Depending on how fast your metabolism is, your Botox® therapy can last either longer or shorter than the average. 

Area Being Injected

Areas with thicker muscle layers won’t have the same results as areas with thinner muscle tissues. For example, if you treat your facial muscles where the muscles are thinner, you can expect the Botox® to last longer. When treating areas where the muscle is thicker, such as the jawline or neck, the Botox® won’t last as long. 

Amount of Botox®  Applied

Large volumes of Botox® will last longer compared to smaller amounts. This is because your body will eventually metabolize the botulin toxins and your nervous system will regenerate. If a smaller dosage is applied to one area, this will happen more quickly compared to a much larger dosage.  

Frequency Of Facial Expressions 

If you’re very expressive, you may have shorter times between Botox® treatments. Frequent smiling, laughing, frowning, crying, and other facial expressions that greatly stretch muscles decrease how long the Botox® therapy lasts. 

Types of Botox® Treatments In Miami

There are many types of Botox® treatments as new and innovative approaches are being developed. 

BroTox 

Brotox is a Botox® treatment that is specifically tailored for men. Because men have a different physique than women, the injector will pay attention to the muscle fiber pattern, muscle mass, and hair distribution on a client’s face.  
Baby Botox

Baby Botox involves much smaller doses of botulin toxin and has limited effects on the muscles in your face. This type of Botox® treatment is injected directly into the jaw joints in your skull. This helps reduce the grinding of teeth, clenching, and stiffness in the jaw muscles. 

NewTox

An alternative to traditional Botox®, Newtox uses the same active ingredient in Botox® cosmetic injections to treat the appearance of smoker’s lines, frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, and other wrinkles. One of the newer alternative treatments uses the neurotoxin Jeuveau. 
BlowTox

Blowtox is a Botox® therapy that is used on the surface of the scalp. This helps reduce excessive sweating along the hairline while doing fitness routines. Blowtox injections are strategically placed along areas of the scalp that sweat heavily and last three to nine months. 

Botox® Treatment Patient FAQ

Use the Botox® procedure in Miami, Fl to remove signs of aging and fine lines without a gummy smile or temporary drooping eyelids. Patients have to make sure they work with a certified clinic with the botulinum type that matches the type of procedure they need. Common questions that patients ask their doctor include the following:  

You as a patient must make sure you go to a professional clinic that has all the required medical licenses to purchase and use Botox® therapy. Without the appropriate medical licenses, the injector can put you at risk of an injury. For example, a doctor can cause permanent eye damage, Bell’s palsy, muscle paralysis, and other serious injuries can occur because of Botox® damage. You should only receive Botox® in a medical setting. Never obtain Botox® at a party, salon, non-medical spa, or in someone’s home.

In general, there are little to no side effects in the patient when it is administered by a skilled practitioner. In the worst-case scenario, you may experience bruising, tenderness, and soreness near the area where the Botox® was injected.

Botox® is an incredibly safe cosmetic procedure that has no serious health complications when done by a certified professional.

If you have a neurological condition, you may be ineligible to receive Botox®. Additionally, if you are immunocompromised, you should also avoid receiving frequent Botox® injections.

If you are pregnant or nursing, you shouldn’t use Botox® until after you’ve given birth or finished breastfeeding. This is because doctors don’t know if the botulin toxin has an effect on unborn and nursing babies.

Before you receive Botox®, you should avoid supplements such as garlic, Ginkgo Biloba, Vitamin E, and ginseng. You should also avoid red wine or wine in general so that you don’t experience excessive bruising. Medication that causes your blood to thin should also be avoided to help reduce bruising.

After your treatment, you should use gentle cleansers on your skin. Additionally, you should avoid fitness activities and wait at least a day or more before you start a rigorous routine.
