Botox® has become a household name due to its incredible cosmetic effects. Botox injections can be used for a variety of cosmetic and medical treatments, from reducing excessive sweating and migraines to smoothing away frown lines or slimming the jaw. At HMS Plastic Surgery, we offer Botox injections for a wide variety of cosmetic treatments at our facility in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale, FL, area.

Botox is derived from botulinum toxin A, a neurotoxin that can affect the nervous system and muscles in the body. When injected in tiny amounts, Botox is safe and effective for relaxing muscles that can cause lines, wrinkles and other changes to the face and facial features. The first FDA approval for Botox Cosmetic was for eliminating frown lines on the forehead. It is also used for a wide range of FDA-approved and some off-label treatments, including:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Bunny lines (nose wrinkles)
  • Gummy smile
  • Masseter reduction
  • Neck lines/cords
  • Non-surgical brow lift

Botox works by blocking nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract. It can be used for a variety of cosmetic purposes, including prevention of the formation of certain dynamic lines or wrinkles or reducing muscle prominence in the jaw or neck.

Botox Cosmetic Treatment

Botox injections can be completed in about 15 minutes. Unlike HA facial fillers that provide instant results, Botox does take a few days to begin relaxing the desired muscles. Most patients can see lines and wrinkles dissipate in less than a week, with results lasting about 3-4 months before the effects of the neurotoxin wear off. There is no downtime needed, with the most common side effects including slight swelling or bruising at the injection site.

Botox treatment can be combined with many different cosmetic procedures, including plastic surgery, facial fillers and laser skin treatment. It is a staple for reducing lines and wrinkles, not only in appearing but as a preventive measure.

Dr. Salinas has been amazing. He has a way about him that is so genuine and he makes you feel comforted immediately. You develop a faith and trust in him from that, and my experience was excellent.

Thank you Dr. Salinas

My oncologist recommended Dr. Salinas for my bilateral mastectomy reconstruction and I couldn’t be more grateful. He is not only an excellent professional but also a very kind human being. He was patient with all my questions and he made the process very smooth and clear. He took into consideration every detail we discussed during our consults I am very happy with the results!

Dr. Harry Salinas is an absolutely amazing doctor! I am a petite woman and due to menopause, my breast became very large affecting my back, neck and shoulders. Dr. Salinas performed a breast reduction and breast lift surgeon. Dr. Salinas invested a significant amount of time explaining the procedure. He was incredibly accommodating as regards to my schedule. He and his staff were always available for prompt follow up on any questions. The results were far beyond my expectations. My only regret is that I waited so long to have the procedure. Dr. Salinas has changed my life! I highly recommend Dr. Salinas for his skill, professionalism, kindness and good heart!
