Botox (Botulinum toxin A) injections are used to treat certain lines and wrinkles of the upper face. Forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet lines on the sides of our eyes are the most common areas for Botox injections. These lines are caused by our muscles involved in facial expression. As we age, these muscles gradually get stronger and bigger, eventually leaving a visible line between the muscle fibers. Botox works by causing a temporary weakness/paralysis of the muscles, thus causing the wrinkle to diminish. After a muscle is injected with Botox, it relaxes over the next few days with a maximum effect seen at 2 weeks. The Botox will usually last for 3-4 months for the first few treatments. With repeated treatments, the effect tends to last longer, up to 6 months.

And a lifetime of emotions means your facial muscles have been put to the test, leading to wrinkles, crow’s feet, and laugh lines.
All these signs of emotion can leave you looking older than your years – but thanks to today’s technology, we can significantly reduce their appearance on your face. With BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, you will be able to see a visible improvement to the wrinkles on your face – and you’ll have smoother skin for up to four months.
We administer small injections directly into the area you’d like to improve. If you’re concerned about pain, or have sensitive facial areas, we’ll be happy to apply an ice pack or anesthetic cream to the area we’ll be working on.
The purified protein from the injection goes to work immediately on the facial muscles that are causing wrinkles. You will begin to notice visible improvements over the next month.
