Ask Dr. Toscano: What Happens After a Botox Injection?

Are you considering your first Botox® treatment? Have you undergone Botox® before, and you’re looking for further treatment? Dr. Toscano is here to help!

While false notions may say otherwise, Botox® is a safe, painless, and quick treatment — in fact, it only takes a few minutes, but the beautiful results last for months.

For your questions and concerns about Botox®, our very own Dr. Toscano has answers:

How Does Botox® work?

Botox® works by injecting small amounts of a highly-purified botulinum toxin protein into your skin. This purified toxin relaxes muscle contractions in the treated area, resulting in smoother, less wrinkled skin. After a few weeks of relaxed facial expressions, your skin will appear smoother and softer. Botox® is widely known as the easiest solution for younger-looking skin.

How long does a Botox® procedure take? Is it a trustworthy procedure?

Our treatment only takes a matter of minutes. At Red Bamboo Medi Spa in Clearwater, Dunedin, Safety Harbor, and Palm Harbor, our very own Dr. Frank Toscano will be the one to perform the procedure.

Patients feel no pain — just a slight pinching feeling. Dr. Toscano is widely known for his gentle injection techniques. Botox® is used to treat crow’s feet, forehead lines, to lift the brows, the glabella, or 11 lines between the eyes, lip lines, and neck lines.

Botox® has been extensively studied in clinical trials and over 400 peer-reviewed articles, leading it to be FDA-approved for cosmetic use in nearly 80 countries. When you choose Botox®, you choose a trusted brand with a proven track record of success and a keen eye for aesthetics.

Additionally, at Red Bamboo, we never use Dysport®, Myobloc® or cheap substitutions from Canada or Asia. The only Botox® we use is Botox Cosmetic® by Allergan and all injections are administered only by Dr. Toscano. Dr. Toscano has recently been recognized by Allergan as a “Master Injector”.

How long does Botox® last?

Botox® results lasts UP to four to five months, at which time you can return for another simple procedure to maintain your youthful appearance.

Red Bamboo Takes Over The Headlines This Holiday Season

Revolutionary Findings that Reverse the Damage from Skin Necrosis

With two appearances in a national and local publication, December has been a proud month for Red Bamboo.

Red Bamboo’s very own Dr. Toscano was featured in November’s issue of The Dermatologist for his recent piece on PRP therapy. 

Dr. Toscano’s article, “Reversal of Skin Necrosis,” illustrates his discovery of how platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy can help new and healthy tissue grow back in the wake of injury-caused necrosis.

This comes as a true honor, given that The Dermatologist journal doesn’t typically feature Non-Dermatologists. Dr. Toscano’s work in PRP is so groundbreaking that The Dermatologist was eager to share his findings with all medical professionals throughout the country. Read More

When To Consider PRP Therapy

Winter may be upon us, but in Florida, the land of endless summer, this doesn’t really mean much. We won’t get an excuse to cover up those wrinkles, saggy skin, or scars with cute, fashionable winter clothing like our friends up north will.

Let’s face it – many of us are self-conscious about our skin imperfections. Whether we have pockmarks from our childhood chicken pox or teenage acne, or we’ve developed embarrassing neck or facial wrinkles that have aged us prematurely, we look for ways to cover up these blemishes.

But why keep torturing ourselves with this nagging self-consciousness?

At the Red Bamboo Medi-Spa in Clearwater, Dr. Francis Toscano and his Stem Cell Center team work in a revolutionary PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy that can help free you from scars and skin blemishes and get you feeling more confident than ever!
