Botox

As we age, the structural support of our skin naturally breaks down and develops wrinkles from repetitive movements of our facial muscles. With the exception of surgery, Botox® injections are the only way to slow down the hands of time and decrease the formation of unwanted crow’s feet and frown lines.

How It’s Done

 

The surgeon injects very low doses of Botox® directly into the muscles around the wrinkles. By blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscle, Botox® decreases their activity. As the muscles weaken, wrinkles soften and often disappear.

The procedure often takes only a few minutes with minimal discomfort. No anesthesia is required.

 

Am I A Candidate?

 

If you are in good general health and have specific but realistic goals for the improvement of your appearance, this procedure may be for you.

 

What To Expect

 

Patients experience minimal discomfort that, if required, they may control with oral medication. Botox® injections are very safe with few side effects. Following the procedure, you may experience some flu-like symptoms (headaches, nausea) and mild pain and bruising at the injection site.

 

Although you may notice a difference right away, wrinkle lines will continue to improve for one month after the procedure and the results can last between 3-4 months.
