BOTOX INJECTIONS

ABOUT BOTOX

Facial wrinkles commonly form when we make simple expressions, such as squinting or smiling. When injected, Botox softens these wrinkles and fine lines by inhibiting the contractions of certain facial muscles. After the injections, wrinkles in the treatment area will diminish and the skin will appear smoother. Botox also helps to prevent further wrinkles and lines from developing.



Botox Cosmetic injections can improve the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown lines, and smile lines. The treatment takes 15-20 minutes and requires no downtime. You can receive treatment during your lunch break or just before picking up the kids from school. And within a few short days, you can enjoy age-defying results. Botox Cosmetic is the first FDA approved botulinum toxin to improve mild to severe frown lines and crow’s feet.

WHAT BOTOX DOES

The purified form of Botulinum Toxin A reduces movement of certain facial muscles that cause wrinkles in just 48-72 hours with full treatment effects seen in only 2 weeks! BOTOX and Dysport can address horizontal lines in the forehead, lines between the eyebrows, a dimpled chin, lines around the eyes (crow’s feet), and overactive masseter muscles which lead to a more “square” appearance of the face.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR BOTOX

Patients must be over 18 to receive injections. We cannot treat patients who are pregnant or nursing. We cannot treat patients within 30 days of major dental surgery. We recommend not taking any blood thinners prior to treatment as this can promote bruising.


Neurotoxins may not be right for you if you’ve had recent surgical changes to your face, have weak muscles in the treatment area, have a neurological disorder that affects the nerves & muscles in your face, or if there is an active infection in the desired treatment area.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING BOTOX

The treatment is performed by a physician assistants. There will be visible reduction in movement to the areas injected creating a smoother appearance to the skin which lasts for approximately three months. We will schedule a follow-up appointment two weeks after treatment to assess your results.
