Mocasa Wellness Center offers Botox to patients interested in softening their crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines. Botox is a simple injectable solution to the dynamic wrinkles that appear due to age and the overuse of facial muscles. Please contact our office in Miami, FL, to discuss your Botox treatment options.

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injectable treatment used to soften dynamic facial wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines. These wrinkles are formed by the overuse of facial expressions, such as squinting, laughing, and frowning. Botox temporarily relaxes the muscles responsible for these wrinkles making them soften and smooth.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox is a neuromodulator composed of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxic protein that temporarily blocks communications between nerve endings and muscles, making the targeted muscles relax. Dynamic wrinkles are formed due to the overuse and contraction of certain facial muscles. Botox treatments can paralyze targeted facial muscles, making the associated wrinkles soften.

Botox Treats:

  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)

The Advantages of Botox:

  • Non-surgical treatment
  • Quick treatment
  • Customizable treatment
  • No pain or discomfort
  • No harsh side effects
  • Negligible risk of complications
  • Can prevent wrinkles (prophylactic)
  • No downtime

Candidates for Botox

Botox is meant for patients with dynamic wrinkles, such as forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet, but it can also suppress other forms of dynamic wrinkles, such as the bunny lines around the nose, perioral lines around the mouth, and more. Besides suppressing the dynamic wrinkles, Botox also carries prophylactic benefits — it prevents the overuse of facial muscles, thereby preventing the appearance of wrinkles.

Your cosmetic provider will examine your facial skin and determine if you can benefit from Botox. However, generally speaking, all healthy adults over 18 qualify as candidates for Botox and other neuromodulators. However, you should be in good physical and mental health and have realistic expectations from the treatment. Please schedule a consultation with our cosmetic providers to determine your candidacy.

Your Botox Treatment

What happens during the consultation?

Your Botox treatment starts with a personal consultation with our cosmetic providers. They examine your facial skin, review your medical history, and discuss your cosmetic goals. Botox is only suitable for dynamic facial wrinkles — not fine lines. They determine if you’re a suitable candidate for Botox and, if so, create the ideal treatment plan for you.

What is the treatment like?

At Mocasa Wellness Center, each Botox treatment is unique and individualized. Instead of following a cookie-cutter formula, our cosmetic providers adjust the Botox dosage according to your specific goals and concerns. They mark all the injection points, apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort, and deliver the Botox injections using ultrafine needles. The entire process concludes in 15 to 30 minutes.

When will the results appear?

Your Botox results will start appearing after 48 to 72 hours — the targeted areas will look smoother. However, the results continue improving for over a week, with the final results appearing in one to two weeks. The final results last for 3 to 4 months, following which you’ll need maintenance treatments. Your cosmetic provider will create the ideal maintenance schedule for you.

Is there any downtime or recovery period?

Botox is a safe procedure with no downtime or extended recovery period. You may experience mild redness, bruising, tenderness, discomfort, and swelling around the injection sites. You can minimize the swelling with ice packs, and the bruises can be concealed with makeup. You’ll have to avoid strenuous workouts for at least 48 hours, but you can resume work immediately. The side effects dissipate within a week.
