BOTOX ® for Patients in New Tampa
BOTOX ® was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat moderate to severe frown lines and other facial wrinkles in adults ages 18 to 65, and is now one of the most commonly used substances for restoring a youthful appearance to a patient’s face. Botox injections are especially popular because they offer a fast and minimally invasive way to reduce frown lines around the mouth and typically produce near immediate results for the patient.
The main ingredient in Botox, a botulinum toxin, relaxes contracted facial muscles that cause wrinkles, effectively reducing the appearance of creases in the skin. So, although the substance is often referred to as and grouped with other injectable fillers, it does not actually “fill” in wrinkles. Instead, Botox restores volume to the affected area to help combat signs of aging.
At the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, we are proud to offer Botox injections for patients from New Tampa, Land O’Lakes, Lutz, and other nearby communities. The substance is properly administered by our certified surgeon or trained esthetician, and is injected in a very low dose into the muscles responsible for the wrinkles being treated. The entire procedure takes about 10 minutes and discomfort is typically minimal and brief.
To learn more about any of these options and to discover which one could best help you to regain a fresh, youthful appearance, contact us today. We’re happy to speak with patients from Wesley Chapel, Trinity, Land O’Lakes, and other nearby communities.
