Introduction to BOTOX® & Wrinkle Relaxers

Getting older carries different emotions for everyone – some look at age as a life well lived, while others only see faded youth. Regardless of your thoughts about aging, most of us are never thrilled to LOOK older, but with the different types of skin rejuvenation products and injectables available, it can be a bit of a minefield to choose the right one. In Miami, FL, BOTOX® and other neuromodulators are the most popular ways to look and feel younger by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Michael Keyes, M.D. and his team at Celebrity Plastics can use this non-surgical procedure to improve your appearance and help you gain additional confidence. We encourage you to continue reading below to decide if this treatment is good for you!

What are BOTOX® & Wrinkle Relaxers?

BOTOX® and other neuromodulators, such as Dysport, work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles and other conditions such as excessive sweating and muscle spasms. When injected into the muscles, these neurotoxins block the nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract, which in turn, relaxes the overlying skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.


BOTOX® is an injectable treatment commonly used to treat wrinkles and lines in areas such as the forehead, between the eyebrows (glabellar lines or “frown lines”), and around the eyes (crow’s feet). BOTOX® injections are made from a type of Botulinum toxin, which works by blocking nerve impulses that cause facial muscles to contract, leading to smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also be used for other cosmetic purposes, such as lifting the eyebrows or treating a gummy smile.

Additionally, BOTOX® has various medical applications, including treating migraines, muscle spasms, and excessive sweating.

Other Types Of Neuromodulators We Offer


Dysport is a wrinkle relaxer that is very similar to BOTOX® and even comes from the same family of botulinum toxin, albeit with a slightly different formula. It is most often used to treat the lines that form an “11” between your eyebrows (often called “worry lines” or glabellar lines ) but can also be used on your eyes (crow’s feet), lips, and neck.

Our team uses their expertise to treat the ‘static’ wrinkles found predominantly around the mouth, which was previously ineligible for wrinkle relaxers. This is because the injections would be needed too close to the muscles that are used for talking, eating, and kissing. When performed by professionals, these tiny injections into certain oral muscles can safely prevent the mouth from creasing the skin, forming the deep vertical lines caused by habitual pursing of one’s lips.

Dysport works best in the upper third of the face, but can also be used to soften or erase lines around the mouth, sculpt the face by raising one or both eyebrows, as well as to smooth vertical and horizontal neck lines by relaxing the platysmal (neck) muscles.

BOTOX for Men®

Even men need a little touch-up now and then, but when most guys think of BOTOX®, it’s often thought of as a “treatment for women”, however, that’s no longer viewed as an accurate statement. Colloquially embraced as “BRO-TOX” by many of our male patients, Dr. Keyes considers your masculine features when planning the injection spots. If you’re looking into the mirror and having trouble recognizing the person in it, maybe it’s time to set the clock back a few years with BOTOX for Men®. Your younger self will thank you for it.

What’s the first step?

The first step in getting BOTOX® & Wrinkle Relaxers in Miami is to contact Celebrity Plastics and schedule your consultation with Dr. Keyes or one of our certified providers. Together during this appointment, you will figure out which wrinkle relaxer injection is best for you. To determine this, we will ask you questions regarding your medical history and examine your face’s wrinkles and/or fine lines.

Once you decide on how to achieve your desired appearance, we will create your treatment plan to move forward to the next step. Any questions concerning BOTOX® or Wrinkle Relaxers can be addressed during your consultation. Once complete, we can start your treatment right away or schedule a future date that better suits your needs.

What to expect on the day of the BOTOX® & Wrinkle Relaxers treatment

The Wrinkle Relaxer treatment is very fast and effective. You will begin with some local numbing, usually in the form of a topical cream, followed by a series of injections into the “problem areas” of your face using an ultra-fine needle. Our expert injectors assess patient needs and only add more if necessary. Since the treatment is so minimally invasive, the patient can resume normal activities immediately without any downtime or recovery necessary.

Procedure timeline


The first step to getting BOTOX® or Wrinkle Relaxers is to contact Celebrity Plastics and schedule a consultation. Before you consult with Dr. Keyes, you will need to meet our Patient Care Coordinator to discuss your aesthetic goals and eligibility. You can also schedule other noninvasive treatments such as Dermal Fillers at this time.

Consultation / Treatment

When you come in for your consultation with Dr. Keyes or one of our advanced practice practitioners. You will discuss your aesthetic goals and your health will be evaluated. After discussing which neuromodulator is best for you, your treatment plan will be created and you can receive your treatment that same day.

Immediately after treatment

Some redness and swelling may occur at the injection site, but this typically subsides within a few hours. Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment.

Within 3-14 days

The effects of BOTOX® begin to take effect, but it may take up to two weeks to see the full results. The muscles that were injected begin to relax, and the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the treated area starts to fade. If you notice any muscle movement after the first two weeks, a touch-up appointment may be necessary.


The effects of BOTOX® typically last for two to three months. During this time, the muscles gradually regain their function, and the wrinkles and fine lines will begin to reappear. If you would like to maintain your appearance, we recommend scheduling touch-up appointments once movement returns so the neuromodulator doesn’t wear off completely.

BOTOX® & Wrinkle Relaxers Recovery

We highly suggest waiting at least 24 hours before you exercise to avoid a faster breakdown of the toxin. Not only could it reduce the effectiveness of the neurotoxin, but it could also increase the likelihood of bruising.

If you do feel any pain or discomfort, you can lightly use an ice pack for 10 – 15 minutes at a time. Finally, try to avoid any sun or heat exposure such as hot tubs, saunas, hot showers/baths, or tanning beds for the first 24 hours.
