BOTOX Before and Afters
What is the Difference between BOTOX and Dermal Fillers?
A common question that people often ask when thinking about BOTOX is what the difference is between BOTOX and dermal fillers. The main difference between dermal fillers and BOTOX is that BOTOX essentially freezes the muscles to get rid of creases and wrinkles, while dermal fillers are an injectable that uses hyaluronic acid and other substances to fill areas of the face to create a smoother, younger face.
BOTOX are also more affordable than dermal fillers, though they do not last as long as dermal fillers.
How Much Does BOTOX Cost in Tampa?
The cost of Botox in Tampa ranges from $10-$13 per unit. These costs vary depending on the size of the area you want to treat and how many areas you are treating in one session. You may need multiple sessions to reach your desired cosmetic results.
Types of BOTOX Treatments
BOTOX Cosmetic Injections
BOTOX cosmetic injections are used to reduce the signs of aging and to create a more youthful appearance. When injected into the facial muscles, BOTOX relaxes the muscle, prevents contractions, and keeps the skin smooth. Performing a BOTOX treatment only takes about 10 minutes, and results are typically seen in 1-2 days.
When you choose Elite Facial Plastic Surgery as your BOTOX provider, Dr. Castellano will help you achieve a more youthful glow with BOTOX facial injections.
A common alternative to Botox is Dysport, another natural-looking option for those that want to appear younger. Dysport injections are a prescription injection that has been proven to smooth frown lines between and around the eyebrows.
While these two injections are similar in many ways, there are some differences between Botox vs. Dysport. Dysport is one injection that is inserted into five different points between and around the eyebrows. It lasts for up to five months, and results are typically seen in 2-3 days.
What Does BOTOX Treat?
BOTOX can treat many areas of the face such as areas around the eyes, forehead, and mouth, including:
- Frown lines between the brows
- Crow’s feet
- Upper and lower lip lines
- Horizontal forehead lines
It can also be used to elevate the brow for a more refreshed appearance.
What BOTOX Can Do For Your Appearance
BOTOX as a cosmetic treatment to help you appear younger and enhance your face’s aesthetic. Some of the most common cosmetic flaws that people turn to BOTOX to fix include:
Crow’s feet are wrinkles in the corner of one’s eyes. Crow’s feet typically end up looking more profound and are more noticeable than wrinkles. Crow’s feet happen from extended UV exposure as well as the loss of elasticity and collagen in one’s face.
Glabellar or Frown Lines
Glabellar lines appear above one’s eyebrows and run horizontally compared to frown lines that appear between one’s eyes. Both kinds of lines occur with age.
It’s common for people to get BOTOX when getting an eyebrow lift. BOTOX will help improve the results of an eyebrow lift, making the face appear all around smoother and younger.
Forehead lines are exactly what they sound like and can cause a person to look much older. BOTOX can solve this problem by being injected into one’s forehead to relax the muscles.
You can get BOTOX for a lip enhancement by receiving the injection in your upper lip. This will create a fuller lip.
Bunny lines are the lines that appear on one’s nose when it is wrinkled. Bunny lines occur with age and from repeating the same facial expression.
Can BOTOX Be Used for Medical Purposes
BOTOX is not only used to make men and women look younger; it can also be used for a number of medical treatments. The most common ways that BOTOX is used for medical treatments are detailed below.
BOTOX for Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
Some people are born with a medical condition that causes them to sweat excessively, whether they are doing some physical activity or not. In addition to medications, those struggling with hyperhidrosis should consider getting BOTOX in their sweat areas the most. BOTOX injections will block the nerve signals responsible for sweating and stop the sweat glands from producing an excess amount of sweat.
Treatment for TMJ or Hypertrophic Masseters
BOTOX has been proven to help patients with TMJ, Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction, and Hypertrophic Masseters. BOTOX has been shown to decrease pain and increase mouth movements for up three months following the BOTOX treatment.
BOTOX Injections for Migraines
Botox works for migraine headaches by blocking neurotransmitters that carry pain signals from the brain. One can get BOTOX injected into both sides of his or her head if he or she experiences chronic migraines.
In regards to preventing migraines, BOTOX stops the chemicals before they have a chance to get to the nerve endings around one’s head or neck, thus preventing the migraine from happening.
What is the Process of Getting BOTOX?
To begin your treatment, we will inject specific areas of muscle using a tiny needle. The surrounding tissue will remain unaffected, as BOTOX only affects the muscle into which it is injected. The procedure is performed at our fully accredited facility and takes about 20 to 30 minutes. Afterwards, our patients can return to their normal, everyday activities.
BOTOX treatments can be combined with other procedures, such as laser skin resurfacing and injectable fillers, for an even better and longer-lasting result. Many patients find that BOTOX treatments can also relieve headaches and reduce excess sweating.
How Much BOTOX Will I Need?
The amount of BOTOX you will need is based on how many wrinkles you have on your forehead, around your eyes, nose, mouth etc. Most BOTOX treatments use 10-30 injections every few months.
The Results of Tampa BOTOX Injections
Visible results are usually seen within 3–7 days, however it can take up to 2 weeks to see full results.
