Before I chose Dr. Luis A. Picard-Ami, Jr. in Panama City, Panama, I researched multiple aesthetic surgeons and simply could not find a surgeon as accomplished. My husband and I have had an outstanding experience and we highly recommend him; his skillfulness and expertise are irrefutable. For months, I communicated with him by email and he used his valuable time to thoroughly, thoughtfully and punctually answer every question. We followed up with simple pictures taken on our phones and he offered his recommendations, our options, detailed cost estimates, basic procedural guidance and aftercare information. He never sold us on additional procedures or products. Additionally, what endeared me to Dr. Picard-Ami was that he helped me to focus on how important realistic result expectations are. He has incredible attention to detail. My husband and I are now in our fifth week of healing and the results so far are completely natural and genuine even though our procedures were quite different. I am thrilled! Also, please know that the costs ended up exactly as quoted and were 30% lower than our U. S. quotes. Dr. Picard-Ami’s manner is warm, compassionate and gentle. His nurse and administrative assistant are also competent, caring and welcoming; they coordinate everything concerning surgical care and follow-up. I want to also share that he is the only surgeon we spoke with who recommended physical therapy following the surgery and we believe the ultrasound sessions facilitated our healing. His office is conveniently located in the Punta Pacifica Hospital as is the aftercare. Next week, we are to follow up with him by email with photos of our progress, and we are seeing steady improvement each day. We’ve had no complications to speak of and no regrets to date. I know we chose the best surgeon with the most caring staff and we simply loved visiting Panama. Please know that you can trust Dr. Picard-Ami; he exceeded our expectations and I know he will surpass yours too. RDS

"As a couple, my husband and I decided to have facial enhancement surgery. Several years ago, I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Picard-Ami, trusting him with this made sense. Our challenges leaving the USA for this major event made us anxious because we speak limited Spanish and have hearing impairment issues. Dr. Picard-Ami and his associates clearly understood these issues and took great care to walk us through each part of the process. We followed all recommended after care treatments and instructions and are currently moving though the healing process nicely and are thrilled with the results. Dr. Picard-Ami is truly an accomplished surgeon and outstanding man. We, absolutely, selected the right surgeon for this life chaining event"

What is Botox Injection?

Botox, commonly referred to as fillers, is the cosmetic name for botulinum toxin. Botox is commonly used as a filler to temporarily reduce or eliminate wrinkles in the forehead, fine lines around the sides of the eyes, and frown lines in between the eyebrows. Botox injections are also solutions to ailments such as blepharospasm (uncontrolled blinking), strabismus (lazy eye), and excessive sweating.

 

Because Botox can only stop the muscles from contracting causing the muscles in the face to relax, therefore softening the wrinkles, wrinkles that have formed as a result of sun damage and gravity will respond poorly to Botox. Botox is also known for its positive effect on migraines and its non-invasive approach in treatment.

 

A Good Candidate for Botox Injection

Good candidates for Botox Injections are healthy individuals between the ages of 35 and 65 who are free from neurological disease. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not be treated with Botox.

 

Botox Injection Procedure

Botox injection is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that does not require anesthesia. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications should be avoided two weeks before the procedure to reduce bruising. A numbing cream may be applied to the area that will be concentrated on.

 

The doctor will mark points on the face indicating where the needles will be injected. Botox filler is injected into the marked areas on the skin, which may not necessarily be on the wrinkles themselves.

 

The toxins that are released into the nerve endings stop the muscles from contracting resulting in softer wrinkles.

 

Average Duration of a Botox Injection Procedure: 10-20 minutes
