Aging is impossible to avoid. Even with a good skincare routine and healthy diet, cellular changes, collagen loss, free radicals, and the environment can all alter the youthful appearance of skin. With more non-surgical and less invasive options available than ever before, being able to grab your share of the fountain of youth becomes easier every year. BOTOX®, an FDA-approved treatment for the temporary reduction of moderate to severe frown, forehead and/or brow wrinkles, has proven to be a successful wrinkle-fighter for both men and women.

What is Botox?
BOTOX® is a non-surgical procedure and relaxes the facial muscles that form frown lines, causing the wrinkles to dissipate. The solution itself is a type of protein that “turns off” the signal between nerves and muscles. Instead of causing a crease when a muscle is moved, the muscle and skin over that muscle are relaxed. This effect reduces the appearance and depth of wrinkles.
What is the Procedure Like?
The solution is placed under the skin with small, fine needles. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. If needed, an anesthetic can be used to numb the area prior to the injections being administered. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes and most patients experience no downtime following treatment.
How Long Until Results Are Seen?
In just a few short minutes with a few tiny injections, you’ll see a dramatic improvement that lasts for months; however, full results can be experienced in 72 hours. BOTOX® works best when treating wrinkles on the lower face, neck, and lips.
Having your BOTOX® administered by a medically trained professional is key when choosing this option. Not only will you be assured that you are receiving the treatment, but they can also guide you when making decisions about the number of units and frequency of visits that best match your needs.
