Botox at ARC Plastic Surgery

Most Commonly Performed Treatment

Mirrors force you to see your age wrinkled on your face. Crow's feet, forehead creases, and more let the world know how old you are, even if you don’t feel that old yet. At ARC Plastic Surgery, we strive to deliver the best Botox Miami has to offer. Botox treatments are the most commonly performed, minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the world. Plastic surgery specialist Dr. Jeremy White, offers Botox as an option to facelifts, as a beneficial way to help patients reduce the effects of aging and get the younger-looking, wrinkle-free skin they desire.

What is Botox?

Hollywood’s not-so-hidden secret

Botox is a trade name for Botulinum toxin A, which comes in the form of a purified protein. Botox works to relax the contraction of muscles by blocking nerve impulses. It is injected into the facial muscles and, within a few hours, it attaches itself to the nerve endings of the motor muscles, thereby affecting nerve transmission. That may sound scary, but there is no loss of sensory feeling at all during the time that Botulinum toxin A is effective.

Once these motor nerve endings are interrupted, the muscles cannot contract. The only reason there are wrinkles in the skin in the first place is because the muscle is moving underneath it; thereby blocking muscle contraction is the most beneficial way to lessen or remove wrinkles. When muscles, especially those around the eyes and in the forehead, can no longer contract, wrinkles will relax and soften, resulting in smoother, softer, and more youthful-looking skin.

Additional Reading

Botox works best for people looking to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, as well as crow’s feet and puffy eyes. In addition to cosmetic purposes, Botox can be used in small doses to treat health problems including blepharospasm, uncontrollable blinking; strabismus, misaligned eyes; and cervical dystonia, a neurological disorder that causes severe neck and shoulder muscle contractions.

What are the Benefits of Botox?

achieve a healthy, more youthful and refreshed appearance

Botox is most effective on wrinkles that haven’t quite set into the skin, such as wrinkles that appear when moving the face, such as when smiling or frowning. Over time the brow may drop or lower; Botox treatments can lift the brow making the face look less tired, giving the face a more youthful appearance. With real, noticeable results, no surgery and little to no recovery time, there are many reasons why Botox has been chosen by millions of women and their doctors. Botox treatments can help patients to achieve a healthy, more youthful and refreshed appearance that will complement the face and increase confidence and quality of life.

Your Botox Procedure

Simple, Non-Surgical Procedure

It’s a simple non-surgical, 10-minute procedure with little to no downtime and almost no bruising after injections! It usually takes five to seven days to begin seeing a cosmetic improvement and the effects tend to last around three months. Most of our Miami botox patients will require additional treatments of Botox to remove wrinkles and lines as they begin to reappear, but after each injection, wrinkles will return less severe as the muscles are trained to relax.

A More Beautiful You

Achieve the youthful look you’ve wanted by scheduling a Botox consultation with double board-certified Dr. Jeremy White in Miami at ARC Plastic Surgery. When you meet Dr. White for your consultation, he will listen to your concerns and carefully examine your skin for clinical signs of aging. He may ask you to look in the mirror, make different facial expressions, and point out the areas that bother you most. He may also use digital photography to make it easier to pinpoint your concerns. If you and he decide that this treatment is the right fit, he will explain what to expect during and after your treatment, including how long it will take to see results. Dr. White never rushes the process and will be pleased to answer any questions you might have, especially if this is your first time trying cosmetic injectables.

Dr. White may tell you about other options, such as dermal fillers, PRF, laser skin rejuvenation, or chemical peels, depending on the specific issues you want to address. His consultations are thorough, conscientious, and informative—ensuring you feel confident moving forward with your personalized treatment plan.

Botox Recovery

Approximately three to ten days after treatment, the skin above these muscles will start to smooth. The effects of Botox are generally long-lasting, remaining approximately anywhere from three to six months depending on various factors including the amount injected, metabolic activity of the patient, and lifestyle choices. Visible results have been shown to last most often around three months.

Botox Results

You should not expect immediate outcomes. Botox typically diminishes frown lines and wrinkles within five to seven days, though this varies from patient to patient. It could take up to two weeks for the final results to appear. You may observe noticeable effects for up to four months, at which injections are recommended regularly to keep lines at bay. Repeated treatments, according to studies, may result in longer-lasting outcomes.


A Botox procedure can be virtually painless when using a topical anesthetic. Pain is minimal even without a numbing agent, and you may just feel a slight pinch. Injections are pretty quick, and you may not even detect them if a trained medical expert gives them. Many people link Botox with pain because they are afraid of needles or have terrible memories of immunizations. However, you'll be relieved to learn that Botox needles are tiny. In fact, they are similar in size to the needles used by people with diabetes to inject themselves with insulin. Minimal bruising is a frequent Botox side effect that can be painful but fades quickly.

Also at the cosmetic surgery Miami center, Dysport and Xeomin are offered as other options to the Botox injections. (The procedures for Dysport and Xeomin are similar and have much the same effects as Botox.) At the ARC Plastic Surgery Miami location, Dr. Jeremy White will work with his patients to find the perfect solution to meet their individual cosmetic needs.

The cost of Botox in Miami varies as it's a highly personalized service. Generally speaking, most patients spend approximately $750 or less, although the number of units needed and the number of treatment areas differ for everyone. You will receive a custom price quote during your in-person assessment at ARC Plastic Surgery. Financing through CareCredit is available.

When performed by a board-certified Miami plastic surgeon such as Dr. White, Botox can last around four months on average. However, highly expressive areas of the face may need a touch-up sooner. The beauty is it is not permanent, allowing you to adjust your Botox units as your needs change.

You should see noticeable results after one treatment session, and should plan on prolonging your results with regular maintenance visits. Some patients come in every two months, while others come in two or three times per year. It depends on how quickly your body metabolizes the product.
