Tampa Bay Botox®

Maybe you're ready to take the plunge or maybe you're just ready to start thinking about it. Whatever the case, it seems impossible to avoid the current BOTOX® craze. Celebrities from Madonna to Nicole Kidman are alleged to have.

What's the appeal? BOTOX® , an injectable that strategically relaxes facial muscles, which may ultimately banish wrinkles, has become one of the most in demand wrinkle-fighting treatments in society's scramble to beat the clock.

In 2002, the FDA approved BOTOX® for cosmetic procedures but doctors were able to use BOTOX® for cosmetic purposes before its FDA approval. In fact, injections of the drug have been the most popular cosmetic medical procedure in the USA since 2000.

How does BOTOX® work?

For cosmetic use, a doctor injects BOTOX® into the facial muscles that cause wrinkling. The drug blocks a substance called acetylcholine and by blocking this substance effectively paralyzes the muscle. This temporary paralysis freezes expression muscles so that the ability to move your muscle may temporarily disappear along with wrinkles. BOTOX® is most effective at banishing what doctors call dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are those pesky wrinkles that most of us call smile lines and frown lines. After making the same expressions time after time, our skin remembers these expressions even when we are not making them- BOTOX® to the rescue. BOTOX® effectively banishes smile line, frown lines, crow's feet and more with results that may last three to six months, depending on the patient.

The BOTOX® procedure.

Many doctors begin by applying a topical anesthetic cream to the areas that will be treated. This effectively numbs the area so that there is little to no pain. Each injection takes a few minutes and there may be slight redness or in some cases bruising at the injection site. Within three to five days results will begin to appear. What to expect? A complete smoothing of lines is typical and dynamic wrinkles are effectively, albeit temporarily, exiled.

Where to get BOTOX®?

This should go with out saying, but BOTOX® should only, only be administered by an authorized healthcare professional in a medical environment. Dermatologists, Plastic Surgeons, and Physicians specializing in cosmetic procedures are generally more experienced at administering BOTOX®.
