Botox in Miami with a Board Certified Surgeon

Submitted by Bernabe Vazquez on June 30, 2013

4There are many pluses to looking and feeling your best. Tired or frazzled appearances tend to be the result of years of concern and worry. Muscles retain the memory especially as age sets in. One of the most uncomplicated solutions to this dilemma is Botox.


The bacterium Clostridium botulinum is the responsible agent for the botulinum toxin Type A, known as Botox. When injected properly, it blocks the nerve impulses that are responsible for the contraction of muscles. This temporary paralysis of the muscle causes wrinkles to be smoothed, which contributes to a rested and refreshed appearance.

Variety of Uses

Used for over twenty years, Botox has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat numerous conditions. Migraine headaches, overactive bladder, neck pain, eyelid spasms, crossed eyes, profuse underarm sweating, and even muscle stiffness have all been treated with Botox, yielding positive results.

The Procedure

As there is no necessity for anesthesia, one can return to work directly after the procedure. Strenuous activity is not recommended for the first three hours after injection to eliminate the chance that product migrates from injection site.

Upon the first meeting with the board certified plastic surgeon, he or she will ask you to move certain muscle groups such as scrunching your forehead muscles and squinting your eyes. The doctor will then mark these muscle groups and make recommendations. The skill set of the doctor will enable the muscles to have some mobility so as to allow natural expressions.

Placement of Botox

Botox has been used with tremendous success to eliminate crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles and the furrow between the eyes known as the glabellar region. These areas are the most popular areas of treatment in the realm of creating a rested and youthful appearance.

The Effects

Because Botox is inserted into dynamic muscles, it takes about three to ten days to see the total affect of the treatment. Depending upon the metabolic activity, life style and amount of Botox injected, the results can last for up to four months.

Professional Application

The significance of choosing a board certified plastic surgeon does not just apply to the plaques hanging in the surgeon’s office. It means that they have passed the scrutiny of the board’s approval by amassing significant experience in their area of expertise, and keeping abreast of state of the art techniques and methodology in their area of specialty. To have a successful Botox outcome, choose a surgeon that has years of experience and a roster of satisfied patients.
