BOTOX® Cosmetic

 

THE WRINKLE ERASER

Miami Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner Danielle Smith preforms Botox injections for a wide range of aesthetic and medical needs at her Miami Beach office.  Botox injections are the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles through minimally invasive injections.  Danielle Smith NP's Botox Cosmetic injections are made from botulinum toxin A, a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent approved by the FDA for several different uses. When injected into the skin, it can block the nerve muscles that are responsible for the repetitive actions that cause fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing them away for a younger and more refreshed appearance.

Miami Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner Danielle Smith uses Botox Cosmetic for wrinkle elimination in areas such as crows feet, between the eyes - glabella (aka the 11's), smoker-lines or lip wrinkles, laugh lines, neck wrinkles (bands) and many others.  Danielle Smith NP will also use botox to decrease the contractility of certain facial muscles in order to “open” specific areas.  The best example is using botox injections to open the eyes.

CROW'S FEET | SQUINTING WRINKLES

In Miami the sun is bright, causing frequent squinting.  This continued contraction of the muscles around the eyes causing the delicate skin to fold and creases, leaving us with some very cute wrinkles.  For some of us these wrinkles are not so cute and play as a "tell" for our true age or our excessive sun exposure.  The easiest way to get rid of these wrinkles is with a simple botox treatment.  Within 3 to 7 days your wrinkles will drastically fade.  These results will last for 3-4months.  As you continue to get botox treatments the muscles will become weaker and weaker, requiring less botox or longer intervals between treatments.   Even 1 or 2 treatments a year can drastically slow your skin's aging, and even help to prevent needing a facelift.  To meet with Danielle Smith NP for your complementary consultation.

THE GLABELLA | FROWN LINES | THE 11'S

Danielle Smith NP can easily treat the worst of frown lines with botox.   With as little as one simple treatment patients can enjoy a drastic difference in softening their wrinkles.  The 11's or frown lines are a results of furrowing your eye brows (the glabellar and corrugator muscles).  rehe 11's is one of the most common treatment areas for botox injections.  Some patients have very deep 11's requiring a few treatments before the wrinkles are fully lifted.  Another factor that worsens the severity of these wrinkles is a patients amount of sun damage.  To achieve the best results Danielle Smith NP may suggest that you pair your botox treatments with a restorative skin care product, IPL treatments, or microdermabrasion.  To assess the best treatment option for your frown lines, CONTACT US today for a complementary consultation.

FOREHEAD WRINKLES | LATERAL FOREHEAD WRINKLES

If you have a forehead and you make expressions then you have forehead wrinkles.  Some of us are blessed with amazing skin and a lack of sun exposure and don’t require a neurotoxtin to freeze away our wrinkles, but for the rest of us, we need some botox.  Forehead wrinkles are most commonly caused by making frequent expressions, such as raising our eye brows as with a surprised expression.   The best way to tell if you need botox in this area is to stand in front of a mirror, raise your eye brows, then relax them.  Are the lines still there?  Once you resume a relaxed expression the lines should fade without a trace, if yours do not its time to start using botox.  As with other areas botox relaxes the frontalis muscles on your forehead which minimizes their movement and thus the wrinkles they create.  Danielle Smith NP is an expert at taming the forehead wrinkles.  Some individuals prefer very little movement in this area providing a very smooth appearance, while others like to be able to maintain some level of expression; which ever your preference Danielle Smith NP has the skill to meet your needs.  She will discuss your preference in your pre-procedure consultation, as with anything the concentration can be adjusted, so if you prefer a little less or a little more on the follow up visits she can certainly give you what you want. 

SMOKER LINES | LIP WRINKLES
