ELIMINATE AND PREVENT FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most effective non-surgical aesthetic treatment for preventing and erasing fine lines and wrinkles. It is the leading brand of botulinum toxin in the world used to achieve the goal of stopping wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions. (Other brands include Dysport and Jueveau, but Botox is the brand 99% of patients ask for by name.)
Botox® is the most popular aesthetic procedure performed in the United States and one of Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery’s most requested treatments. Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery and The Skin Care Center have been awarded the prestigious Black Diamond status, by Allergan, the makers of Botox®. Black Diamond status places our practice in the Top 1% in the entire country for demonstrating our expertise through a high volume of aesthetic procedures including Botox® and Juvederm®.
Wrinkles are the result of many factors including, the natural aging process, environmental factors, sun damage, and repetitive facial expressions causing contraction of facial muscles. Day to day facial expressions including smiling, frowning, squinting and concentration require repeated contraction of facial muscles, resulting in wrinkles and fine lines to appear along the forehead, crow’s feet, and furrow’s in between the brows.
How does BOTOX® work?
Botox® works beneath the skin’s surface to target the underlying muscle activity by relaxing it. This causes wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet to smooth and soften, improving the appearance of the signs of aging and delivering noticeable, yet natural results.
The most common treatment areas:
- frown lines
- crow’s feet
- forehead lines
- creases between brows
More advanced techniques can be used to:
- raise the eyebrows
- correct the “bunny lines” on the nose
- raise downturned corners of the mouth
- treat a dimpled “orange peel” chin
- treat a gummy smile
Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery offers Botox injections on a walk-in basis. However, you can always make an appointment if you have a preference as to which medical professional will be administering your treatment. It usually takes about 15 minutes. It is minimally invasive and offers dramatic results within days of being treated. Effects typically last between 3 to 4 months. Results may vary.
