Botox temporarily smoothes the appearance of frown lines between the eyes, forehead and crow’s feet. With this procedure Botulinum toxin type A (Botox) is injected under the skin, blocking the nerve impulses to the facial muscles and causing the muscles to ‘relax’. Botox usually wears off after about three to four months. The treatment takes less than 30 minutes and effects are usually seen within 1 week. Dr. Monasterio has been using Botox treatment in his practice for several years, long before the FDA approved it for cosmetic use in 2002. He is one of the leading Botox specialists in South Florida and is currently a Spokesman for Allergan, the company that produces Botox.
