Botox is used to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet in adults. It is a quick 10-minute procedure with minimal downtime that delivers predictable subtle results.
Botox targets one of the underlying causes of lines and wrinkles — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. At first, these lines are temporary but eventually, they can become “etched” into the skin. These muscles are injected with Botox to temporarily reduce muscle activity resulting in a visible smoothing of your facial lines.
Some patient report feeling a pinch like sensation. We apply a numbing cream and/or ice to minimize discomfort during the treatment
You should begin to see results in 1-2 days with maximum improvement occurring at 1-2 weeks. The effects should last for 3-4 months.
When performed by an expert, your results should look natural and subtle. You’ll look like yourself - only with fewer lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.
You can return to your normal routine immediately after you leave the office
When performed by a cosmetic dermatologist, Botox is extremely safe. Side effects, if any, are mild and temporary.
