Reasons to consider BOTOX®

Botox can help alleviate the following conditions:

  • Excessive facial wrinkles
  • Large wrinkles or furrows in your forehead
  • Small wrinkles or “crow’s feet” around your eyes
  • A vertical “frown line” between your eyebrows


How does Botox work?

It works by decreasing the activity of muscles that are responsible for creating facial wrinkles. This muscle relaxant is best used in the upper face and neck and as an adjunct in the lower face to diminish muscle movement. Common areas for Botox injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” around the eyes. This temporarily gets rid of muscle movement lines for a younger, smoother look. When used appropriately, BOTOX is safe and is FDA approved for treatment of facial wrinkle. The effects generally last up to four months. Botox has proved to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and is capable of producing phenomenal improvements in your appearance.

What to Expect Afterwards

Patients generally return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Following these post operative instructions will help reduce the length and intensity of the recovery period. Patients should avoid engaging in heavy physical exercise, applying cosmetics, or laying down flat for a minimum of 4 hours after the injections.
