Botox Treatment offered in Largo and the surronding Tampa Bay area…
Discover the proven results that almost 12 million women and men have experienced. Botox Cosmetic treatment is a quick , 10 minute procedure that requires no downtime or recovery. With a few tiny injections, Botox cosmetic blocks nerve impulses to the muscles in your forehead called the “corrugater” and ‘ procerus” muscles reducing their movement. This decreased muscle activity helps lesson the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows for real noticeable results.
What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA), a prescription medicine, is a purified protein that temporarily improves the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eye brows and along the forehead in adults who have not exceeded 65 years of age.
At Dr. K’s Med Spa, BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a licensed physician as a simple, non-surgical procedure in which the treatment is injected directly into the muscles. The treatment works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes persistent lines to form.
The benefits of BOTOX® injections have made them a popular cosmetic treatment. BOTOX® treatments can give the face a younger, revitalized appearance. Explore the information below to learn more about the various BOTOX® treatments and benefits.
Facts about BOTOX® Cosmetic
- BOTOX® Cosmetic was introduced in 2002 as the first botulinum toxin to be FDA-approved for stubborn frown lines.
- BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular of all physician-administered non-surgical aesthetic procedures for 7 years running.
- Approximately 11.8 million BOTOX® Cosmetic procedures have been administered in the United States since its development in 2002.

How BOTOX® Treatment Benefits the Eyes
“Dynamic wrinkles,” or wrinkles caused by facial expression and muscle movement, are especially prevalent in the area around the eyes. Fortunately, these wrinkles are very responsive to BOTOX® treatments. One of the benefits of BOTOX® injections is that BOTOX® Cosmetic weakens the muscles responsible for squinting and crinkling of the eye area. The treatment effectively reduces or eliminates crow’s feet and other wrinkles around the eyes. Since BOTOX® injections only affect muscle nerves, not nerves of sensation, patients do not experience a loss of feeling in the treated area.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and the Brows
Smiling, laughing, and frowning can all result in permanent wrinkling of the brow. Removing wrinkles from the area between the eyes can dramatically change a person’s appearance from one of continual anger or sadness to one of contentment and restedness. Because BOTOX® treatments are so effective in improving moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, many patients have them as an alternative to a brow lift. Reducing deep, stubborn furrows between the brows is also a widely documented benefit of BOTOX® injections for men. You will start to see aesthetic improvement from your BOTOX® injections after a few days, and results can last up to four months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Forehead Wrinkles
Wrinkles on the forehead can give the face an older, more haggard appearance. As people age, the muscles used to form facial expressions create permanent creases in the skin. One of the benefits of BOTOX® injections is that they can be used to relax the facial muscles, resulting in smoother skin and fewer wrinkles. In areas such as the forehead, where horizontal wrinkles tend to form, the BOTOX® benefits are particularly valuable. Contrary to the common misconception that a doctor must treat each wrinkle, only the underlying muscles that cause wrinkles must be treated. Once you have received your BOTOX® treatment, the muscles that ordinarily cause wrinkles and lines to appear in the forehead are no longer as active for a period of several months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Jaw Contouring
Recently, doctors have discovered a new BOTOX® benefit: Patients with oversized masseter muscles, the muscles of the jaw used for chewing, can be treated with BOTOX® injections. Many patients with square-shaped faces want a non-surgical option to give them the oval face shape they desire. BOTOX ® treatments have been reported to reduce the size of the masseter muscles, resulting in a gently curved cheek and jaw. There are several additional benefits of using BOTOX® injections for jaw contouring, including:
- The procedure is non-invasive.
- A BOTOX® treatment can be quickly performed in your doctor’s office.
- There is virtually no recovery time necessary; you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.
Although the bone structure is not changed, the reduction of muscle thickness noticeably refines the angle of the patient’s jaw.
Alternative Health Benefits of BOTOX® Injections
The benefits of BOTOX ® injections are not limited to treating wrinkles. The FDA originally approved BOTOX ® for several non-cosmetic treatments, including blepharospasm, a condition in which the eyes twitch uncontrollably, migraine headaches, and excessive sweating. To remedy blepharospasm and muscle spasms in other areas of the body, BOTOX® treatments are used to block the nerve impulses that cause the affected muscles to twitch. BOTOX ® injections in the forehead, brow, side of the head, and back of the neck, can reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches for up to six months. BOTOX® treatments can also reduce excessive sweating by blocking the chemical transmitter that induces sweating. Reduction of chronic back pain and jaw tension are two additional health benefits of BOTOX® that extend beyond aesthetic enhancement.
