BOTOX® Cosmetic

As you grow older, the skin on your face becomes thinner and less elastic. Creases that used to appear only when you furrowed your brow or crinkled your eyes in laughter are now a regular feature when you look in the mirror. Lines on your forehead and around your lips and eyes can be diminished greatly with the help of BOTOX injections, giving you a younger, smoother appearance. It has helped countless individuals, and it can do the same for you.

Let us provide an easy solution to a difficult problem.

The Procedure

BOTOX is administered during one appointment and typically only takes around 30 minutes to complete. The areas to be treated are marked, and then a syringe is used to administer the compound. You may feel a slight pinch, but the pain can be controlled with a cold compress, and anesthesia is typically not necessary.

Your face may feel stiff at first, but mobility of your forehead muscles should return within a week.

Is BOTOX safe? BOTOX is one of three neuromodulators approved by the FDA for cosmetic use. Because there is some small risk attached to the procedure, having an experienced medical professional administer BOTOX offers the utmost safety and accuracy.
