What is Botox?

Botox ® Cosmetic is the only FDA approved treatment that is able to reduce the appearance of forehead creases, frown lines, and crow’s feet. This is a natural, purified protein that is administered through an injection using a micro-needle and provides dramatic results with minimal bruising or discomfort. The effects are long lasting and inexpensive.

Treatment is suitable for use in people ranging in age from eighteen to sixty-five. Results are visible in a few days and can last several months. Botox ®Cosmetic treatments can also be used to treat excessive sweating of the underarms or the palm of hands and can reduce headaches.

How Does it Work?

It works by relaxing facial muscles. Small doses of Botox ® are injected into specific areas of the face. The muscles are temporarily paralyzed, which allows facial muscles to relax and reduces the pulling effect that creates those lines. Overactive muscles relax as the protein blocks the transmission of nerve impulses. Although office visit times may vary, the procedure generally takes about 20 minutes to complete. You can return to work with no recovery time!
