At Luminous Skin and Laser Tampa, we only use the highest quality Botox injections in Tampa for your maximum safety.
Repetitive movement of the facial muscles during facial expressions gradually causes the skin on the surface to crease and fold, resulting in the formation of facial lines. Botox is the name of a naturally derived FDA-approved protein that temporarily relaxes these muscles, helping your skin stay smooth and wrinkle-free. See for yourself why we are one of the leading providers of Botox and facial fillers in Tampa Bay and nearby.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox works by temporarily impeding the muscle contractions that cause frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, marionette lines, etc. By restricting these movements, the skin on the surface remains smooth and wrinkle-free.
Is There Any Downtime to Botox?
There’s no downtime to this procedure and you can resume your normal activities on the day of your treatment. However, there are a few indications to follow on the days following your treatment to ensure you achieve optimal results. Your therapists will guide you on the day of the consultation. Still, common recommendations include avoiding physical activity on the first 24 hours after your treatment is indicated, as this can cause unwanted ‘spill’ of the product to other than the originally targeted areas.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
It is entirely normal to experience mild swelling or to bruise within the first 24 hours to 3 days after your Botox injections. These symptoms typically resolve by themselves and are nothing to worry about.
Is Treatment Painful?
Botox injections are performed by a highly-skilled medical professional and are extremely quick and virtually painless, depending on the treatment area. Some patients describe Botox injections as a very tiny pinch that is less noticeable than a regular vaccine.
What Can Botox Treat?
Botox can effectively treat and prevent dynamic facial lines such as crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines, marionette lines and more. It can also slim the face, lift brows and help improve the appearance of down-turned lips.
When Can I Expect to See Results?
Noticeable results become apparent within a few days from your treatment, depending on the individual. However, you can expect to see peak results after 15 days of having your treatment.
How Long Does Botox Last?
Botox injections last for up to 4 months, depending on the individual. After the effect of the injections wears off, your muscles regain their normal mobility, and the skin on the surface returns to its original appearance. Botox injections do not worsen your lines after they wear off.
Collagen is what gives a young face its supple and bouncy appearance. As we age, our bodies’ ability to produce collagen and elastin steadily decreases, affecting the structure and firmness of the skin. Dermal fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid, a molecule that is naturally occurring in the skin. HA fillers are a very effective rejuvenation treatment as they can help restore the loss of volume, creating a rejuvenated look.
Dermal fillers are also a very versatile technique used to contour, beautify and enhance facial features such as lips, cheeks and chin. At Luminous Skin and Laser Tampa, we provide some of the best facial fillers Tampa has to offer.
What Can Fillers Achieve?
Dermal fillers can be used to enhance features, fill in deep creases and contour the face. It is a very versatile technique that, in the hands of an experienced therapist, can lead to beautiful, natural-looking results. Fillers can be used to re-shape and enhance lips, correct profile imbalances, sculpt cheeks, define jawlines and more. Upon assessment, your therapists can determine where to administer your fillers for optimal results.
How Long Do Fillers Last?
Dermal fillers are gradually reabsorbed by the body and can last for up to six months, depending on the type of fillers.
Is There Any Downtime to Fillers?
There’s minimal downtime to this procedure, as swelling and bruising can occur after your dermal fillers treatment. This is entirely normal and expected; however, avoiding blood-thinning medication and alcohol on the day leading to your treatment can help you minimise side effects.
Is Treatment Painful?
The level of discomfort varies from patient to patient. The use of a numbing agent is sometimes recommended to make your experience more comfortable.
