Unleash Your Beauty with Botox® Injections from Tampa Surgical Arts
Odds are, you’ve heard about Botox®. It’s an incredibly popular medical spa procedure that is a quick and easy way to take years off your appearance. If you’re frustrated by the lines and wrinkles on your face, then consult with the team at Tampa Surgical Arts to learn about the Botox injections we provide. We are led by renowned cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Manik S. Bedi, who goes above and beyond to give his clients the beautiful appearance they’ve always wanted. Sure, you’ve worked hard for those lines and wrinkles, but who says you have to live with them?
What Is Botox?
Botox is an FDA-approved drug that helps to smooth out facial wrinkles and lines by blocking nerves and weakening muscles. This ensures those nerves and muscles remain relaxed to keep the overlying skin smooth. Botox injections are most commonly administered:
- At the outer corners of the eyes to smooth out crow’s feet
- Along the forehead to remove forehead wrinkles
- Between the eyebrows to relax frown lines
- At the top of the nose to smooth out bunny lines
- Along the chin to prevent dimpling
- Along the neck to reduce vertical bands
Botox can also treat other health problems, such as chronic migraines, blepharospasm, severe sweating, and more.
How Is Botox Performed?
Botox is a fairly simple procedure that never takes longer than 10 minutes to complete. Often, Dr. Bedi or one of his physician assistants can begin the treatment process during your initial consultation for your convenience.
A tiny needle will be used to inject the Botox drug into specific muscles on the face. Only a small amount will be used, and that’s all that’s needed to begin seeing results in as soon as three days. You may experience minor discomfort, as the injections are reported to feel like tiny pinpricks.
What Are Some of the Benefits of Botox Injections?
Aside from the most obvious benefit of Botox – that is, reducing fine lines and wrinkles on your face and neck – what are some of the other advantages of this procedure? Consider:
- It’s a safe, gentle procedure that requires no anesthesia or sedation.
- There is no downtime for recovery, so you don’t need to worry about clearing your schedule or taking off work.
- It may be able to elevate your eyebrows for a nonsurgical brow lift.
- The procedure is not painful, even for those with low pain tolerance.
What Are the Treatment Considerations to Keep in Mind?
One of the main things to remember about Botox injections is that the results are temporary, and it will be important to make this treatment a regular part of your beauty routine. If you are new to Botox, the results will last for three to four months, and then you’ll need to have the injections administered again. However, with repeated injections come muscles that learn to relax, so lines and wrinkles will appear less severe over time. The team at Tampa Surgical Arts can work with you to develop a treatment plan that will make sure you reap the full benefits of Botox injections.
What Are the Post-Op Care Instructions?
Since Botox is such a simple procedure that doesn’t require anesthesia, there are not too many after-care instructions. In many cases, you can resume normal activities immediately after the Botox injections have been administered. Some individuals report redness or swelling, but this usually goes away quickly and is not a cause for concern.
