Botox is a popular cosmetic skin-rejuvenation treatment. It treats fine lines and wrinkles, restoring a youthful facial appearance. At M.D. Aesthetics & Wellness Institute, Dr. Anitha Reddy and her team offer Botox in Tampa to help smooth away patients’ age lines.
Botox is a minimally invasive FDA-approved injectable product. This non-surgical treatment can effectively treat fine lines and wrinkles caused by repeated facial muscle contraction.
Botox can ease, erase, and even prevent new fine lines, resulting in effective skin rejuvenation. It is an ideal option for treatment of crow’s feet around the eyes, horizontal forehead wrinkles, vertical lines between the eyebrows, chin wrinkles, and more.
Repetitive muscle contraction is a major factor when it comes to the creation of dynamic lines and wrinkles. The muscle contractions that occur when people form the same expressions and make the same facial movements over and over cause the muscles to stiffen. It becomes harder for them to return to their at-rest state. This results in wrinkles in the skin.
Composed of botulinum toxin type A, Botox is a neuromodulator that effectively blocks acetylcholine receptors in the muscles. By doing this, it allows stiff muscles to return to their full relaxed state. This smooths out the overlying skin, thus reducing fine age lines.
Botox is recommended for patients 18 years old or older who are starting to show signs of aging. Ideal candidates are looking for non-surgical treatment for dynamic lines and wrinkles, especially those on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and at the sides of the eyes. Candidates must have realistic expectations.
Botox is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Patients who are allergic to any ingredients in Botox should consider other skin-revitalization treatments. Patients with moderate to harsh lines are not good candidates for Botox and are recommended to instead consider our filler treatments.

Your consultation starts by discussing your goals and the wrinkles that you would like us to address. We will perform a skin evaluation to determine if your signs of aging can be effectively treated with Botox.
We will prepare a treatment plan and discuss all the details with you, including aftercare steps. Any questions you may raise will be properly addressed.
A Botox session can last less than 20 minutes, depending on the number of treatment areas. It will start by marking the injection sites. A topical anesthetic will be used to numb the treatment region, preventing discomfort. Controlled amounts of Botox will be injected into each injection site according to the treatment plan.
The patient can return to their normal schedule right after treatment. No recovery time will be necessary. Aftercare instructions will be provided. Mild bruising and swelling may be present but will fade. It is recommended that the patient avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight.
Full results can be expected after seven to ten days. Most patients can enjoy results for as long as four months. Maintenance treatments will be necessary to extend the results. Patients who continue to receive Botox injection may observe less-severe wrinkles over time.
The price of Botox will depend on the number of units of Botox administered during treatment. The number of treatment areas can also affect the total cost of the procedure.
