The best candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic are those who are starting to show signs of age, but aren’t ready to commit to cosmetic surgery just yet. When you look in the mirror you might think that you appear tired, worried, or even angry because of visible lines and wrinkles on your forehead or between your eyebrows. You may also feel that your outward appearance doesn’t reflect how you feel inside. Some patients may want to improve lines and wrinkles that have existed for years, while others may simply want to preserve their youthful appearance.

With extensive knowledge of facial anatomy and proper dosing, our injectors are known for delivering beautiful results that won’t make you look frozen or unnatural.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein that is administered with a few tiny, quick injections. It works by relaxing the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. These are wrinkles that form due to repeated facial movements that cause the muscles to contract and thereby form creases in the skin. Most dynamic wrinkles appear in the areas of the face that have a lot of daily movement, such as the forehead, between the brows, around the eyes, the chin, and above the lip. By relaxing these areas, lines and wrinkles are given the chance to smooth out naturally.
BOTOX® Cosmetic has an excellent, well-established, safety record. For decades, it has been used therapeutically to treat a variety of medical conditions. Since its approval for cosmetic use in 2002, over 11 million people have been treated. Approved in more than 75 countries, BOTOX® is one of the most widely researched medicines in the world. That said, we understand if you still have concerns, and we are happy to answer all your questions prior to your treatment.
Before your treatment, a detailed consultation is necessary to develop a treatment plan that’s uniquely designed for your appearance goals. Next, we will gently administer BOTOX® Cosmetic into the targeted facial muscle groups that are responsible for the dynamic wrinkle development. The individual injections will only take moments to complete; the total session length will vary slightly depending on how many target areas have been selected. While some redness may be seen at the site of injection, it usually dissipates within minutes. Bruising may be possible, but is not experienced often. If you are prone to bruising, we will advise you to refrain from blood thinning agents such as aspirin or fish oils prior to your appointment.
Many of our patients combine BOTOX® Cosmetic with other treatments for more comprehensive results. For example, along with BOTOX® working to smooth out dynamic wrinkles, Injectable Fillers can be used to minimize deeper furrows and areas of volume loss. Laser Rejuvenation or Fraxel® Dual treatments can smooth and restore the skin’s surface for a more youthful glow. Combining procedures can leave you looking dramatically younger and more refreshed, without surgery.
There is no downtime with this treatment. After your session is completed, you are free to head home or carry on with your day’s activities. We advise you to remain upright for the next four hours and refrain from rubbing or massaging the injection site, as doing so may displace the BOTOX® Cosmetic beyond where it is intended. Following your BOTOX® treatment, smoother skin gradually appears within the next five to seven days; although this varies between patients.
