Reduce frown lines, crows feet and forehead lines.
Wrinkles are formed from a combination of cellular changes to our skin as we age, as well as repetitive muscle movements, such as frowning, smiling, and squinting.
BOTOX® is an injection that works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines, crows feet and forehead lines. Botox® injections result in a temporary reduction in the activity of the muscles, thus a reduction in the appearance of the associated lines or wrinkles.
During your consultation, we will explain to you how it works, and how long it lasts, what to expect with the treatment and any potential side effects. Our physicians will ask you to make a variety of facial movements, like squinting, scowling, raising your eyebrows, and smiling, to determine a customized dose based on your areas of concern, the strength of your muscles, and your desired results.
Patients may begin to notice results within 72 hours of the injection, however, it takes 7 to 14 days to see the full effect. We highly recommend a follow up visit 2 weeks after your injection to ensure you love your results! Results typically last 3 months. In order to best prevent facial wrinkles from forming, we recommend you return for your next injection before full movement is noted in the treatment area
