Botox in Miami, FL
The most well-known and popular dermal filler treatment, Botox® has established its excellent reputation through years of use and many patients who swear by it. Stubborn lines, wrinkles, and creases may be effectively diminished after an injection treatment performed by Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board-certified plastic surgeon, in his conveniently located Aventura office, serving residents of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and the South Florida area.
What Is Botox®?
Botox® is a dermal filler treatment, injected via a fine needle, which restores a youthful appearance to the skin, and is regularly used to minimize fine lines and wrinkles that result from the process of aging. Also called Botulinum toxin type A, Botox® is produced from a refined bacterium and works by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles, giving skin a smoother, firmer and more youthful appearance.
Benefits of Botox®
Botox® has maintained its popularity because patients have found that the treatments consistently offer the following benefits:
- Temporarily smooth out wrinkles, creases, and fine lines
- Impart a firm, radiant appearance to the skin
- Boost self-esteem by achieving a more youthful appearance
- Control the intensity and frequency of migraines
- Control symptoms of overactive bladder
- Decrease the production of underarm perspiration
Who Is a Good Candidate for Botox®?
Anyone seeking a more youthful appearance may be a good candidate for Botox® treatment. Research has found that this is an excellent preventative treatment for younger skin to ward off wrinkles as you age. It is also an appropriate treatment for mature skin that has lost its elasticity and firmness. If you are unhappy with the presence of wrinkles, creases, and fine lines, Botox® may be your solution.
How Should I Prepare For Botox®?
When scheduling your Botox® consultation with Dr. Rubinstein, please let him know if you have received any other injections over the prior four months, as well as whether you take certain medications, such as aspirin and other blood thinners, allergy medications, sleep aids, NSAIDS, or muscle relaxers. You may have to temporarily suspend medications while receiving Botox® treatments.
How is Botox® Administered?
Botox® is administered by injection using a very thin, fine-gauge syringe. The number of injections required for each treatment depends on the number and severity of wrinkles, creases, and fine lines. In most cases, a single treatment, performed in Dr. Rubinstein’s office, lasts about four to six months, and patients regularly return for ongoing treatments. Over time, the facial muscles become retrained, and patients require fewer follow-up treatments. Botox® has also been found effective against migraine headaches, symptoms of overactive bladder, and excessive underarm sweat.
How Much Does Botox® Cost In Miami?
Botox® is an elective cosmetic procedure in most cases, so most health insurance providers will not cover it. Dr. Rubinstein provides easy financing options and accepts cash, personal checks, and credit cards as forms of payment to make your Botox® procedure more affordable.
