Botulinum toxin, also known as BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport, or Botulinum toxin type A, is a cosmetic injectable that smoothes fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles, thus allowing them to relax. Wrinkles are caused by years of repetitive facial expressions which can create crevices on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows. At Gary J. Rosenbaum, M.D., P.A. plastic surgery in Miami Beach, FL, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Rosenbaum offers BOTOX to relax the facial muscles, revealing a more youthful, smoother appearance.
During the initial consultation, Dr. Rosenbaum will ask about your concerns and your goals to help you decide if BOTOX is the best treatment for you. Ideal candidates will have:
- Deep lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions
- Facial asymmetry, particularly around the eyebrows
- Wrinkles that make you look sad, tired, or mad
- Are not ready or do not want a facelift
"I have been a long time colleague of Dr. Rosenbaum’s at Mt. Sinai Medical Center. I have worked with him for many years in the surgical suite and have recently become a patient in the office for my injectables. Not only is he an very talented surgeon in the operating room doing complex reconstruction surgeries & cosmetic surgeries, but he is an artist when it comes to placing fillers & Botox! I am very happy with the results of my treatments and his staff is friendly and helpful. I have recommended him to many of my friends & colleagues as a result of my positive experience."- E.B. / Google / Jul 03, 2019
What to Expect
A BOTOX treatment is usually performed on the same day as your consultation in about 15 – 30 minutes as an outpatient procedure. Dr. Rosenbaum will clean the treatment sites before the BOTOX is injected into the facial muscles with a thin needle. Most patients feel mild to no discomfort during the procedure, but local anesthesia or numbing cream can be used if the patient prefers. Patients will be able to leave immediately after their BOTOX treatment, but they should avoid lying down, touching the injection sites, and exercise for at least 24 hours. There may be temporary bruising, swelling, or redness in the first few days post procedure.
While some results will be seen immediately after the treatment, patients will see the full results of BOTOX in 3 – 4 days as the dynamic wrinkles begin to soften and smooth. BOTOX treatments usually last 3 – 6 months, so patients are encouraged to schedule their next appointment after their treatment to prevent the results from fading. Dr. Rosenbaum may also suggest a follow-up appointment several weeks after the initial treatment to check the patient’s progress and add more BOTOX, if needed.
