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. To learn more about BOTOX, contact Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV.
"Dr. Myint and his staff are absolutely impeccable. I was referred to him for an issue with my eyelid. As the universe would have it, not only was I referred to him by my eye care specialist but also a friend who happened to know of a specialist in Vegas who was highly certified and respected for eye surgeries. Dr. Myint corrected my ptosis and was very patient with me throughout the process. Believe me...I'm a big question-asker and even under local, I was a big blabbermouth full of questions. Now, I see Dr. Myint for Botox, Pelleve, and other facial/skin-related issues to keep this old crinkly 40 year old looking youthful. He hasn't disappointed thus far. He has a gentle hand, a kind heart, a wonderful staff and I look forward to all that they can teach me in years to come. They are truly to be trusted. :))"- L.M. / Yelp / Jan 02, 2012

"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
"I would definitely recommend Dr. Myint to my family and friends. He has a good bed side manned. I Was very nervous going in. At the end of my appointment he helped me feel at ease. The Botox he did on me looks so Natural. I am going to go back when I need too"- A.I. / Yelp / Dec 06, 2017
"Dr Myint is the best!!! I recently did Botox for me and I love it!! He takes his time with the patient and explains everything. Very professional and one of the nicest people ever!! I would recommend him!"- K.E. / Yelp / Oct 16, 2017
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 PRP with microneedling or 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.
