Treating the signs of aging

Nobody can avoid the natural signs of aging. As we grow older, we notice that our skin loses its firmness, giving us a tired appearance. A lot of people see thinning skin, fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and sagging skin to be the most common signs of aging.

These are because of the biological changes that make us lose collagen from the body. Collagen, being one of the most important proteins, is essential for keeping the skin’s elasticity and youthfulness. Once collagen reserves deplete, the face begins to look gaunt and aged, and this can happen even when a person is still young.

If you are looking for a cosmetic enhancement that effectively treats the signs of aging, Botox at Destin Medical Spa is the right choice.

Meet the doctor

Dr. Amber Wiebe is a highly-trained practitioner of facial aesthetics with an extensive background. She has been a traveling National Instructor for over 10 years in Botox and Fillers, attained her Diplomate in the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, and is a published author in Botox and Fillers. She blends knowledge, passion, and artistry to help you defy your age and look and feel your best.

What are neuromodulators?

A neuromodulator is a muscle-relaxing injection consisting of botulinum toxin. The most well-known neuromodulator in the market is Botox. Neuromodulators are mainly used to treat wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Still, cosmetic doctors have found it to be useful in treating other conditions as well, such as excessive sweating and lazy eyes. A lot of people have been choosing Botox as an effective treatment to target chin wrinkles, folds under the eyes, treat bunny nose lines, and sagging skin on the neck.

The effect of a neuromodulator is quite simple. A minimal amount of the product is injected into the skin and into the underlying muscle, which causes it to relax; the result is smooth, evened-out skin, which looks young and firm.

The effects of neuromodulators typically last for a couple of months but could last longer depending on the treatment chosen. Botox is the only known neuromodulator that has been approved by the FDA to treat conditions outside of cosmetic enhancements. Interestingly, many men are also making good use of Botox injections to enhance their appearance and make them look naturally youthful.

How to prepare for Botox injections

Once you receive an initial consultation at our medspa in Destin, FL, Dr. Amber Wiebe, will first analyze your facial features and determine the areas that could benefit from Botox injections.

She will guide you through the entire process and keep you informed along every step of the way. You’ll get the best Botox Destin and Santa Rosa Beach have to offer. Your medical history will be taken into account to ensure that you are an ideal candidate for the treatment.

Results with Botox

The patient needs virtually no recovery time after receiving the Botox injections. The full effects of Botox injections can be seen in about a week or two post-treatment. In some cases, you can come in for a follow-up two weeks after getting the procedure done so that Dr. Amber Wiebe can make any necessary adjustments. When dosed adequately to relax the muscle, results of Botox injections can last up to 3 to 4 months.

For treatments concerning excessive sweating, patients will notice a decrease in sweating in about two weeks, and the results last for about six months. Patients will need to come in for more sessions to eliminate the problem.

What to expect

Before the procedure

Before the procedure, our doctor will recommend any steps that may need to be taken to ease the process. Typically, Botox injections don’t cause too much pain or discomfort. The doctor may not numb the area if the treatment is for wrinkles and fine lines, but if you are using Botox to treat excessive sweating on your palms or soles, it is best to numb your skin beforehand. If needed, our doctor may use topical anesthesia, ice, and vibration anesthesia to numb the skin and massage the area to reduce discomfort.

During the procedure

Dr. Amber Wiebe will first mark the areas to be treated. Next, she will use a thin needle to inject a small amount of botulinum toxin into the skin and underlying muscles. Depending on how extensive the treatment is or how much of a difference the patient desires, more injections of Botox may also be used in a single treatment.

After the procedure

Following the injections of Botox, Destin Medical Spa’s Dr. Amber Wiebe will guide you through all the after-care steps you need to consider. We recommend that you avoid napping, resting your face on a pillow, bending forward, and strenuous exercise for at least four hours after the treatment. It would also be ideal to avoid getting a facial or a massage on the same day as your Botox appointment. If you have any specific questions, you can ask Dr. Wiebe, who will be pleased to answer them for you.


Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Traditional nose jobs (formally called rhinoplasty) are done through surgical means. While the surgery is effective, it’s not the right solution for everyone. This is where Botox comes in. It is one of the best ways to undergo a non-surgical rhinoplasty and get similar benefits as surgery in a safe manner. At Destin Medical Spa, we offer non-surgical rhinoplasty.

Aesthetic conditions that Botox rhinoplasty can address

The depressor septi nasi muscle is responsible for the way the nose stands. Age and activities like talking, laughing and frowning can loosen the depressor septi nasi muscle. They make the nose look droopier than it is.

This is when conditions, such as lines around the mouth & nose, drooping nose tip and wide nose flare occur. The overall effect is that we start to look older and fatter than we are.

Botox can help here. It functions the same way in your nose, as it does in other areas of your face. It prevents the neural signals that promote the formation of lines and drooping from reaching the target nasal muscle.

By injecting a small quantity of Botox into the nasal muscles you can:

  • Help your nose stand tall and perky again
  • Reduce the size of your nasal flare
  • Prevent the formation of bunny lines

Who can’t get non-surgical rhinoplasty using Botox?

While the non-surgical rhinoplasty is extremely safe, it is best to consult our Destin Medical Spa professionals about your eligibility for your treatment if you:

  • Are pregnant
  • Are nursing
  • Have a nasal condition
  • Have sensitive skin
  • Are allergic to Botox

We can recommend alternative treatments for you.

How is non-surgical rhinoplasty performed?

At Destin Medical Spa, our specialists are highly experienced in providing non-surgical rhinoplasty. Once you come to us for a consult, we study the angle and shape of your nose to determine how much Botox you may need.

Then, on the day of the treatment, we provide localized numbing to ensure the entire treatment is comfortable for you. We use a small vial of Botox and inject it into the depressor septi nasi muscle.

The entire treatment takes less than half an hour.

Post-treatment results

The area around your nose may look swollen and red. But these will subside soon. You may also feel numbness in the area, which will reduce slowly.

You will begin to notice the result of the Botox treatment in a few days. The bunny lines will start to smooth over and during the next few weeks. You’ll also see your nose looking different – younger and shapelier than before.

Our professionals will recommend when you need to come in for a follow-up non-surgical rhinoplasty session.
