Why Would I Choose Botox?

Many individuals feel like they look older than they are. With frown lines, crow’s feet around the eyes and wrinkles, this can be a very true statement. No one can avoid aging, because of the natural phases the body goes through.

Nowadays, there are things you can do to minimize the effects of aging. This is where Botox injections can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles on a temporary basis.

Botox use is continually on the rise all over the world, and there are several reasons individuals keep coming back to this quick and non-invasive procedure.

What Happens Before a Botox Treatment?

Just like any other plastic surgery procedure, Dr. Zuriarrain will hold a quick consultation. While this may not be as in-depth, there is still a requirement to determine if the patients is a suitable candidate for Botox.

To determine if a client is suitable, he will give an examination of the areas where the Botox injections will be, and then there will be pictures taken for before and after shots, and for reference.

Suitable candidates can be anyone between the ages of 18 to 65, although it is generally the older population who wish to undergo this quick and easy procedure. Any individual who suffers from frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines are ones who can benefit the most.

Dr. Z, of Zuri Plastic Surgery in Miami,  will explain all about Botox, what it is, and educate patients it is safe for use on humans. He will also inform how the Botulinum Type A toxin will relax muscles, so there is less movement, and thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines.

What Happens After a Botox Treatment?

While Botox is safe, some patients may experience a few temporary side effects. These are no worse than if visiting a dentist and having a numbing injection. The more common things patients experience are headaches; slight bruising and pain where the injections are, temporary drooping of the eyelids (ptosis), blurred vision or feeling nauseas.

There may be the urge to massage treated areas, yet, they will advise patients against this. With these effects, there are patients who spend a few minutes to recover in Dr. Zuriarrain’s Miami, FL plastic surgery clinic. Others can leave the clinic immediately with no ill effects.

One of the things that makes Botox so popular is the immediate effects. Patients can see an improvement by the time they leave the clinic, and over the next few days, the new youthful appearance will become more pronounced.

To maintain these vibrant looks, patients will need to undergo repeated Botox sessions every 3-6 months; this is dependent on the patient and the severity of wrinkles or lines where Dr. Zuriarrain made the injections in the previous session.

Treatment with Botox

The procedure is very quick, and there are very few steps to take from the beginning to the end. One the area has been marked out for the injections; they spread a topical numbing onto these regions.

This may take up to an hour to take full effect and is the longest part of the procedure. Once the clients face is numb, Dr. Zuriarrain will take micro-needles, and begin injecting small amounts of Botox into the muscles, which causes the wrinkles.

This part of the process can take up to thirty minutes depending on the extent of the work patients are undertaking.
