Over time, our skin produces less of the protein called collagen and elastin, causing skin to be thinner and more prone to damage. Facial expressions can intensify the aging process, by wrinkling areas of the face where muscles repeatedly contract. Preventing muscle functioning helps to treat wrinkles around the affected areas of the face.
Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging offers Botox® and Dysport treatment to temporarily reduce the muscle movement in the face that cause skin to furrow and fold.
Millions of Botox treatments are performed annually in over 60 countries throughout the world. Dr. Vinas follows the manufacturer’s guidelines so there’s almost no risk to you!
If you have a sagging brow to start with there’s a small chance that your brow may temporarily droop further, possibly making it a challenge to apply mascara. There’s only a small risk of getting a bruise at the site of the injections, as the needle Adley uses is the smallest needle made for Botox.
Botox improves & may eliminate some or all of your facial wrinkles, especially around your eyes & your forehead. You will enjoy your refreshed appearance and friends and family members will say you look relaxed, younger and, less stressed!
You’ll return for a complimentary follow-up appointment 2 weeks after the treatment. By this time the maximum effect of your treatment will have taken place.
It depends on how many units of Botox you require, with the average charge being around $500 per treatment.
Adley, a very experienced injector for Botox, will do your injections.
Once Adley determines that you are a good candidate for Botox, he will perform the injections with the use of a distraction device, making it virtually painless.
You will have no special precautions after receiving Botox; you can continue with your daily routine.
Your Botox treatment will take effect from 4-7 days after the injection & you will enjoy your new, relaxed look for 3 mos.
The FDA approved Dysport & Xeomin for the treatment of facial wrinkles. There is much less experience in the use and long term results of these newer products, however. As of this time, there is no product that has a similar effect as Botox when applied to the skin (without being injected). Radiofrequency is still being investigated as an alternative to injection. There are more scientific papers on Botox than almost any other medicine.
The Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging Patient Safety Program involves our patients, surgeon, nurses, staff, and patient families or other caregivers all working together toward a common goal: Assuring the safest possible surgical experience.
Steps to Ensure Your Safety
At Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging, your safety is our number one priority. To make sure that we do everything possible to maintain your safety, we have formalized our steps into The Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging Patient Safety Program which includes these elements:
We ask you to describe in detail any medical problems, medications you take, and any previous surgeries. This allows us to understand any special needs you may have.
We send anyone with questionable or known medical problems to see their primary care physician or any necessary specialists prior to recommending surgery.
Since all of our surgical patients have been deemed to be good candidates, it has proven to be quite safe for you to recover at home with contact from our providers.
We uphold the strictest hiring and educational criteria in our nursing staff to make certain you are well cared for by qualified staff before, and after your procedures.
To ensure our facility remains in compliance with State and National Safety Standards, we voluntarily employ the services of Universal Healthcare Consulting.
We perform your procedure in our state-of-the-art surgery center, which is fully certified by AAAHC to assure the highest standards in your care, medications, sterility, lightning and equipment.
We have the most modern monitoring and life-saving equipment on site. We maintain a binding transfer agreement with St Lucie Medical Center, should there be a need for hospital care following a procedure.
We provide detailed pre and post-operative teaching with written instructions to you, so you know what to expect before and after your procedure. We have 24-hour physician coverage.
