We have three doctors at our office: Jason Altman, MD.; Marcelo Ghersi, MD.; and John C. Oeltjen, MD. All of our doctors are board certified physicians.
Board Certification is voluntary; however, the certification shows you that the doctors took extra steps to ensure that they are skilled and capable of performing cosmetic surgeries. In addition to a medical license (as all surgeons must have to legally perform any procedure), the certification helps doctors meet requirements to specialize in certain areas. A medical license proves basic competence. Board Certification proves specialization in a certain area.

Medical recommendations suggest that you should only get the injections at least four months following previous injections to reduce the risk of infection and other possible side effects. Additionally, Botox injection doctors in Miami will ask if you are taking blood thinners, as these could cause bruising and excessive bleeding. You doctor may ask you to avoid taking blood thinners (like Aspirin) for a few days before the procedure. Like any other medical procedure, your doctor will also ask about other medical conditions and medications.
Once the day of your affordable Botox injections in Miami Florida arrives, your doctor will perform the injections in an examining room. These injections are quick and easy so you will not have to worry about recovery time or staying overnight anywhere.
The injection can be a bit uncomfortable so you can ask the doctor to number your skin before he moves forward with the procedure. Common options include an injected numbing agent, a cream that you apply about an hour before the procedure and a cold spray. The cold spray is very cold air, blown on an area of skin for about ten seconds. Numbness can last for a few seconds or longer depending on which option you use.
During the procedure, your Botox injection specialty doctor in Miami will use a small needle to administer small amounts of botulinum toxin into your skin. Your doctor will determine how much toxin to use based on the area of skin treated by the doctor. Following your Botox injections Miami, you can go about your day like normal. You should avoid rubbing or massaging the area you had treated to avoid pushing the toxin elsewhere. You may not notice results immediately. It can take a few days to see the results and results can last up to one year, depending on where the doctor injected the toxin and how much was used.
