Botox®

The human face is extremely expressive. Every day, you smile, frown, and raise your eyebrows – all of which leave telltale marks on your skin. Younger people have no problem bouncing back from these repetitive motions because their bodies have plenty of collagen and elastin. However, as you age, your skin loses its resiliency and starts to develop expression-caused wrinkles.

You have undoubtedly heard about the incredible anti-aging benefits of Botox®, which is famous for its ability to soften existing fine lines and stop new wrinkles from forming. Botox is best for reducing wrinkles like:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown and worry lines
  • Horizontal forehead furrows
  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows
  • Fine lines around the mouth

What Is Botox®?

Botox® is a purified form of botulinum toxin. It works by inhibiting certain facial muscles from contracting. By preventing the muscles in your face from contracting for several months, it helps minimize existing wrinkles, while also preventing new wrinkles from forming.

Botox® is FDA-approved to treat “dynamic” wrinkles, which are the ones that form due to repetitive muscle movements such as frowning or squinting. As a qualified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. David Gerth can inject Botox® in specific spots to help discourage your muscles from falling into those habitual positions, thus minimizing current fine lines and decreasing your chances of developing deep, permanent wrinkles.

Top 5 Benefits of Botox®

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of varieties of topical anti-aging serums and lotions in the world, but Botox® blows all of them out of the water. While these products can certainly help you achieve healthier skin, only Botox® has the power to erase fine lines and wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming.

Botox® is a go-to treatment among women and men with busy lifestyles who don’t have time to heal after surgery. It’s a quick, in-office procedure, and you can return to your normal daily activities immediately after getting injections. You can even get Botox® on your lunch break, and drive yourself back to the office right afterward.
Some cosmetic procedures are well-known for being budget-busters, but as the popularity of Botox® has increased, its price has become increasingly affordable. You can treat yourself to the world’s best anti-aging solution without putting a dent in your bank account, and you’ll love how much better you look afterward.

The FDA approved Botox for treating wrinkles in 2002. In the decade and a half since then, cosmetic injectors like Dr. Gerth have successfully treated many patients, providing natural-looking results.

Don’t let premature wrinkles make you look older than you really are! If you’re worried about your fine lines and wrinkles putting you at a competitive disadvantage or making a dent in your self-confidence, Botox® can help you reclaim your youthful good looks and give you a self-esteem boost. The results of Botox® are very refined and natural-looking, and gradually reveal themselves over the course of a couple of weeks.

What Happens During Botox® Injections

Getting Botox® injections is a simple in-office treatment that has you in and out of our Miami Beach office quickly, depending on how many areas you choose to have treated. Many patients are hesitant to get Botox® because they are worried about injections, but the procedure isn’t painful, thanks to a gentle local anesthetic. There’s no need to take time off work or other regular activities with Botox®. If you like, you can also wear makeup right after getting your injections. The most common effects of Botox® include short-term tenderness, bruising, and swelling in the injection areas shortly after treatment, but generally, Botox® injections are a quick, straightforward, and minimally invasive treatment that requires no downtime for recovery. Serious risks and long-term side effects from Botox are rare.
