When you make any type of facial expression, the muscles around your face contract and this can create wrinkles or furrows in the skin. BOTOX Cosmetic makes it impossible to make certain facial expressions and movements so wrinkles can no longer form.
Botox is a popular non-surgical treatment option for patients that want to erase or minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles along the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth. It is a quick-fix solution for many patients that want to maintain a rejuvenated look without any downtime and boasts no side effects. If you want to take a few years off your appearance during your lunch break, come in to our office for a Botox treatment.
What to Expect with Botox
Botox works by ‘freezing’ the muscles by stopping nerve activity. This means that the areas being treated can no longer respond to facial movements, thereby decreasing further wrinkles. This is beneficial to many patients but we need to be as conservative as possible when administering Botox so that you are not left with a ‘frozen’ look.
Botox is one of the leading injectables on the market, an attractive option for men and women who want to mask the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the face. There is no downtime with this treatment but you will need to wait about 10 to 14 days to see the full results. We will determine how many units of Botox you need during your consultation — some patients only need a few units to take care of minor lines while others need more than a dozen or so units to treat stronger muscles.
Benefits of Botox
The Botox injection is administered very quickly and is virtually painless. Patients can enjoy benefits for up to three to six months, depending on the areas being treated and the number of units administered. We an administer Botox around the forehead, in between the brows, around the eyes, and around the mouth.

- Minimally-invasive procedure
- Painless treatment
