Botox Cosmetic is a non-surgical treatment that can help soften or eliminate facial lines. Botox is an important component of a facial rejuvenation program. Botox works by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic is a quick, non-invasive treatment with no recovery or downtime. Within 3-7 days the wrinkles and lines disappear. Botox can help maintain a youthful appearance and prevent the formation of new or deeper wrinkles.

What is Botox?

Botox Cosmetic is purified protein. The Botox protein is administered in very low doses into over-active muscles with tiny injections. The Botox protein prevents the treated muscles from contracting and causing wrinkles.

Botox is a safe, effective, and proven method for treating fine lines and wrinkles. Its safety is well established, as it has been used therapeutically for over 20 years.

How long does Botox last?

Botox can last anywhere from three to six months in the areas treated. Repeat treatments are needed to maintain a lasting result.

Is Botox for me?

If you desire a subtle improvement in your look or a "cleaning up" of age-related wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be for you. It is an excellent option for the patient hesitant to undergo surgery, yet wants to erase the deep creases and furrows of the face. By relaxing the muscles that cause these wrinkles, you can rid yourself of the heavy tension look or remove a misrepresented, tired and angry appearance. Following treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic, you can expect to appear more relaxed and rested. BOTOX® Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce the heavy vertical creases between the eyebrows, flatten deep forehead wrinkles, and smooth out the crow's feet area of the eyes. Other areas that are being treated include the age-defining wrinkles around the mouth, nose and the muscle bands of the neck.
