Though BOTOX® is a household name, not everyone fully understands how the treatment works. BOTOX® is actually a prescription medication that is administered via injection.
This is a procedure that only takes a few minutes, rarely requires anesthesia, and is administered with a very small needle.The injection contains a compound that blocks nerve impulses in the muscles that cause them to contract.
When the muscles in the face stay relaxed, the appearance of wrinkles is greatly reduced. Before your first procedure, we will sit down with you to determine your cosmetic goals and create a tailored treatment plan to help you achieve them.
Once complete, visible results will be evident within the first two days, with full results after about two weeks. These results typically last for around three to four months.

Frequently asked questions
Who is a candidate for Botox?
Is BOTOX® treatment painful?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic, your physician may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Many people return directly to work or normal activity following BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.
Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you "had work done." The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
