Natural aging and a lifetime of involuntary facial muscle actions contribute to the formation of wrinkles, creases and lines that can make you look angry, tired or older than you feel. Although aging may be inevitable, Solea Brickell Spa possesses an unprecedented arsenal of gentle, non-surgical treatments that combat the most noticeable and frustrating facial imperfections. BOTOX® has become the most performed non-surgical treatments to address these types of issues.

BOTOX Cosmetic was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002 for the cosmetic reduction of forehead lines and has successfully been used to treat a wide range of other conditions, such as wrinkles on the neck and gummy smiles.
BOTOX is a purified version of Botulinum Toxin Type A. It has been proven to reduce the effects of facial aging, such as crow’s feet, frown lines and other complexion issues. When injected into the skin, BOTOX temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles that contribute to wrinkles.
How Does BOTOX Work?
BOTOX is designed to soften wrinkles caused by the muscular activity of your face. Your facial muscles move when you make certain expressions and over time, this muscle movement creates wrinkles where the skin folds together. BOTOX works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. When the injected muscle is unable to contract, wrinkles relax and soften.
Using a tiny needle, Our Specialist injects BOTOX into the muscles below the targeted area. The procedure is quick and requires no surgery or downtime. The injections themselves are relatively painless. Some patients experience minor discomfort at the injection site, but this is only a temporary effect that quickly subsides.
What Issues Can BOTOX Injections Address?
Targeted injections of BOTOX into facial tissue can temporarily interrupt the nerve signals to nearby muscles. By diminishing muscle activity, BOTOX can correct fine lines and deep-set wrinkles.
With this remarkably effective and diverse treatment option, our Solea Brickell Spa specialist can use BOTOX Cosmetic to temporarily erase and eliminate:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Bunny lines
- Downturned corners of the mouth
- Gummy Smile
- Facial asymmetry
- Wrinkling on the neck
- Platysmal lines
- Chin dimpling
- Poor jawline definition
- Masseter hypertrophy
- Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
How Long Does BOTOX Last?
In most cases, the results of BOTOX injections will last up to three to four months. Every patient is different, however, and the exact length of time your results will last depends on certain factors:
- Amount of BOTOX used: Generally speaking, the more units of BOTOX that are injected into a region, the longer the results will last.
- Muscle strength: If you have very strong facial muscles in a certain area, they may be more resistant to the paralyzing function of the treatment. As a result, more BOTOX may be required to achieve the same duration of results.
- Follow up treatment: With follow-up BOTOX injection treatments at Solea Brickell Spa, it is possible for your results to last even longer than the average three to four months. Some patients can enjoy results for up to six to eight months with consistent follow-up schedules.
Your Initial BOTOX Consultation
During your initial consultation, Our Specialist will perform a comprehensive facial examination that thoroughly evaluates the shape of your face, the presence of wrinkles and lines as well as the overall texture of your skin. He will discuss your facial evaluation with you in front of a mirror and determine the role of BOTOX Cosmetic in your treatment.
A key component of this examination is confirming that the wrinkles of concern are the result of muscle activity and not volume loss or other issues. Depending on the nature of your wrinkles, Solea Brickell Spa’s Specialist may suggest other modalities of treatment, such as Dermal Fillers.
