From laughter and sadness, to anger and surprise, your face shows all of your emotions to the world. Expressing a lifetime of emotions means your facial muscles have been put to the test, leading to wrinkles and other fine lines and creases.
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. As one of our most popular cosmetic procedures, BOTOX® helps to defy age by visibly improving the signs of facial wrinkles and leaving skin looking smoother and more refreshed
In general, BOTOX® treatments are fairly quick and only take about 10 to 15 minutes. During the procedure, we use a very thin needle to administer small injections directly into the area you’d like to improve. These injections contain purified protein that immediately goes to work and relaxes the facial muscles that are causing wrinkles. The amount of injections needed will ultimately depend on the facial areas that require treatment.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatments Can Improve:
- Worry lines in forehead
- Lines between the eyebrows
- Smile lines
- Laugh lines, from nose to mouth
- Crow’s feet
For some patients, BOTOX® can be be combined with other skin treatments and procedures to meet their specific goals. Fillers such as RADIESSE®, can be used to address areas of the face effected by volume loss, while BOTOX® can work to diminish the appearance of wrinkles on different areas for optimal results.

Good Candidates for BOTOX®
The fact is that many people interested in minimizing the appearance of unwanted facial wrinkles make great candidates for BOTOX® injections. In general, these candidates include both men and women who are in good health and have realistic expectations. However, this treatment is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Does it Hurt?
Typically speaking, these injections cause a minimal amount of discomfort. Certain patients may feel a slight stinging sensation like a pin-prick. If you are 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.
Recovery Expectations After Procedure
No downtime is required after BOTOX® injections. Patients can expect to return to work and other normal activities immediately after treatment. Some patients may experience effects such as headaches, slight redness, or swelling, but this tends to diminish within a few hours or days following the injections.
Many patients begin to notice some visible improvement within a few days, but a full effect is generally achieved after 2 weeks or so. Generally, the results of smoother looking skin and reduced wrinkles lasts up to 4 months or maybe longer. Follow-up BOTOX® treatments are necessary in order to maintain the look.
