What is BOTOX?
Seasoned oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint is pleased to offer BOTOX injections to patients who wish to soften dynamic lines and wrinkles in the upper face. BOTOX is a purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily limits the movement of the underlying muscles used to make facial expressions. Over time, repetitious muscle movement results in wrinkles and fine lines. BOTOX injectable treatments can dramatically soften the depth of these wrinkles to reveal a smoother and younger-looking facial contour.

"Looking 10 Years Younger!!!! I feel confident and see the bright, young eyes I knew before - Dr. Myint performed my brow lift two weeks ago, and I absolutely love the results. The procedure resulted in minimal discomfort relieved by Tylenol for two days. Before my brow lift, I disliked looking at pictures of myself, and always appeared exhausted. Now I feel confident and see the bright, young eyes I knew before. I have tried multiple non-invasive lasers over the last few years, and have even tried injectables. I am very happy that I consulted with Dr. Myint and proceeded with a surgical procedure that will benefit my looks for many years to come. If you want youthful, beautiful, natural-looking results, treat yourself to Dr. Myint's talents. Dr. Myint is highly accomplished, has a superb bedside manner, and will provide ample information before and after the procedure."- E. / RealSelf / Jun 15, 2020

"Dr Myint is an amazing doctor. He did eyelid surgery on my mom a couples of months ago. Since then I am now a patient of his, I've had Botox and fillers on my lip. Never been so happy with my results."- A.H. / Yelp / Sep 13, 2017
"Dr. Myint is an amazing eye and facial plastic surgeon and he produces amazing results. I recently had upper blepharoplasty (eyelid) surgery and a botox treatment for deep lines on my forehead. Two different eye doctors in Las Vegas recommended him and noted that he is one of the two top surgeons in the entire country. During the initial consultation, Dr. Myint took the time to fully explain the procedure and worked with me to ensure my desired outcome on Oriental eyes. I explained to him that I wanted to look natural and not over-done. I am extremely pleased with the results. My eyes have never looked better and I have received many compliments after only one month. I have provided several friends Dr. Myint's contact information. The botox treatment virtually eliminated the deep lines on my forehead. I plan on having this treatment by Dr. Myint 3-4 times a year. I would highly recommend Dr. Myint. He is a miracle worker and truly the best!"- J.F. / Yelp / Dec 11, 2019
Candidates for botox
BOTOX injections are often ideal for patients who wish to soften the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles without having to undergo cosmetic surgery. BOTOX is also used as a preventive treatment for wrinkles. It may be an ideal therapy if you're frustrated by forehead creases, lines between your brows, or wrinkles around your eyes. If you have moderate to severe skin laxity, then a surgical lift procedure may be a more suitable option.
BOTOX treatments are done as an outpatient procedure at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery. We'll ask you to make several facial expressions, such as frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., which will allow us to determine where to place the injections. BOTOX is most commonly administered between the brows, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and throughout the forehead.
The face will be cleansed and BOTOX will be injected under the skin through a fine needle, followed by a cool compress to help prevent discomfort, swelling, and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally isn't necessary. BOTOX injections typically take around 15 – 30 minutes.
after your session
Following the procedure, you can return to your usual activities, however, strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least one day. You will be advised to sleep with your head propped up for the first night and to not touch your face, which can accidentally spread the product to other areas. The treated sections may appear red, swollen, or bruised but these side effects should dissipate over the next 2 – 3 days. In the majority of cases, it typically takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX are visible. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. You can speak to your injector about when to schedule your next appointment at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery to extend your results.
How many BOTOX units/injections will I need?
The number of BOTOX injections given will differ based on individual goals and the depth and severity of your wrinkles. Dr. Myint and his skilled team can determine the correct quantity of BOTOX injections based on your desired aesthetic results and whether you wish to address the forehead, Crow's feet, or between the eyes. To prolong your aesthetic outcomes, our practitioners may recommend getting BOTOX treatments every 3 – 4 months at our state-of-the-art practice.
Can I have BOTOX with other nonsurgical services?
BOTOX typically pairs well with other aesthetic services at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery for men and women who prefer to address aging concerns. If you notice deeper and more extensive lines, our professionals might recommend incorporating a dermal filler for optimal outcomes. To further maximize your younger-looking radiant appearance, our team may recommend other complementary procedures, like facials.
Is there a difference between wrinkle reducers and fillers?
Although wrinkle reducers, such as BOTOX, are administered to diminish fine creases by temporarily freezing your muscle engagement, dermal fillers are a different collection of cosmetic options that add facial volume. Dermal fillers are intended to volumize gaunt-looking areas and reduce static wrinkles. Dr. Myint and his team can determine whether you may benefit from a dermal filler to further enhance your BOTOX results.
