Botox

What Is It?

This minimally invasive treatment relaxes facial muscles that can cause crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead wrinkles. Since the muscle’s ability to contract is limited, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are prevented, reduced or eliminated.

How Does It Work?

Our Nurse Practitioner will assess where the Botox injection will be most effective, and will discuss this with the patient. Once they’ve determined the patient’s desired outcome, she will administer an injection at the site to achieve the most natural looking results. The goal is not to effect a dramatic change in the patient’s appearance, but to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Are There Side Effects?

Botox treatments are safe and effective, and are provided by our qualified clinicians. Minimal pain, swelling or bruising may occur around the injection site, which most patients can effectively cover with makeup.

Patients may resume normal daily activity immediately following the procedure (though strenuous exercise, and lying down are not recommended within the few hours following treatment).
