What is Botox?

Years of frowning, squinting and smiling leave behind fine lines and wrinkles. Botox® can relax the muscles on areas of the face and neck which cause wrinkles to soften or decrease giving skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.


How is a Botox® treatment performed?

Botox® is injected directly into the muscle that causes dynamic wrinkles. A tiny needle is used to minimize discomfort and there is no downtime. Within days, you may see an improvement that can last up to 3-4 months. With repeated treatments, the results may tend to last longer. If there is concomitant volume loss, soft tissue fillers may be recommended for more complete correction.
