Botox - Q&A

  • What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

    Miami - BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).

    At Dermalaser in Doral, BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by Dr, Decio Carvalho or Dr. Fabio Castro as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. Individual results may vary.

  • How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?

    BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of the “11s,” the moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. For more information come in for a free consultation at Dermalaser Med Spa in Miami for Botox treatments.

  • When will I see results from a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?

    Botox procedures at Dermalaser have given results within days. You may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows rather quickly. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to 4 months. Individual results may vary.

  • How long does BOTOX® Cosmetic last?

    Visible results have been shown to last up to 4 months. Your own results may vary – be sure to talk to Dr. Decio Carvalho at Dermalaser about what you can expect and when to schedule your next Botox appointment.

  • Is treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic painful?

    Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injection, your physician may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Most patients are in and out of Dermalaser Med Spa without downtime following BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.

  • Will I still be able to make facial expressions?

    Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
