BOTOX is a good option for men and women who are concerned with frown lines between the brows, creases across the forehead, "crow's feet," and bands in the neck. BOTOX is also extremely effective for the treatment of excessive sweating. BOTOX is a purified protein that smoothes muscles with a few small injections. Once the muscles are at rest, the skin becomes smoother, creating a more natural appearance. Although your lines will improve, it will not radically change your facial appearance. You will still be able to smile, frown, and look surprised, but without the lines and creases. BOTOX is FDA approved for the treatment of crow's feet and frown lines between the brows. It has been in use more than a decade and has been proven safe when injected in a medically supervised setting.
This procedure does not require anesthesia, however topical numbing is available. BOTOX is injected into the treatment area using a fine needle. Very precise, controlled injections from our skilled nurse injector ensure that your results appear subtle and natural.
There is no downtime associated with BOTOX, and you can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment. Some patients may experience slight redness or puffiness at the injection site, which usually subsides within a few hours. Most can see results within a couple of days after their BOTOX appointments, with effects lasting 3 to 4 months.
BOTOX can be administered as a stand-alone treatment or in addition to surgical procedures. It can enhance the outcome of a brow lift or facelift, and may be combined with other injectables for additional wrinkle-reducing benefits.
When considering BOTOX treatments, it is important to educate yourself and understand exactly what you are receiving. Questions you may want to ask prior to your appointment include:

Everyone is unique; the same amount of BOTOX administered to 2 separate patients may produce entirely different results. We also offer XEOMIN® and Dysport® brands of wrinkle reducers as alternatives to treatment with BOTOX. These products contain the same basic ingredient as BOTOX and are both FDA approved for the treatment of frown lines between the brows (glabellar creases). Some patients respond better to treatment with these products.
