BOTOX® is the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in America today. Millions of men and women of all skin colors and types have enjoyed the benefits of Botox cosmetic. Botox® consists of a purified protein which, when injected relaxes the muscles in an area for a significant period of time. It is frequently used between the eyebrows to prevent scowling, in the forehead to prevent furrowing and in the temple areas outside the eyes to prevent "crows feet." It can also be used on the bridge of the nose to prevent "bunny" or "wolf lines." Small amounts of Botox can be used in the upper lip to reduce smokers lines or in the eyebrows to perform a browlift. Simply put Botox treats wrinkles in motion in these areas. Over time with more injections the wrinkles at rest can also relax and be helped.

That said it is not uncommon to have to do a touch up injection to get the "look" just right. So please do not hesitate to return. Often an additional small amount is needed get the perfect look. However It can take up to two weeks to see the full results of a series of Injections so It Is Important to be patient.There is an additional fee for touchups unless you have already purchased the 100 unit Botox Bank. Contrary to popular belief Botox does not cause a frozen face look but rather softens the unwanted wrinkles while maintaining some facial expression.
Botox is a quick minimally invasive procedure consisting of a few tiny injections. While no anesthesia is normally needed you can request topical numbing cream, cold air or ice to reduce the discomfort. The entire procedure takes about 10 minutes. Discomfort is minimal and brief and there is usually no downtime afterward.
Botox® lasts two to four months, or longer if used consistently over a period of years, especially if reinjected before full motion resumes.Each person requires a different amount of Botox to achieve the desired result. It may take several sessions to find the optimal profile which is just right for you. Interestingly, Botox® can often alleviate migraine headaches when injected between the eyebrows or into the forehead.
