What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable neuromodulator used to smooth unwanted dynamic lines, or those caused by repeated facial movements such as frowning, smiling, and squinting. The most commonly treated areas include frown lines between the eyebrows (the 11s), forehead creases, and crow’s feet. Botox can also be used to reduce excess sweating, soften the look of vertical neck bands, treat a cobblestoned chin, and define the jawline.

Who is a Candidate?

Healthy individuals who are looking to temporarily smooth lines and wrinkles can often benefit from Botox. However, those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a history of severe allergies, or if you have existing muscle weakness in the proposed treatment site. To learn more regarding candidacy, please contact our office today to schedule a consultation appointment.

The Botox Treatment

To begin treatment, you may be given a topical numbing cream to help ensure you are comfortable during the injection. Botox will then be skillfully injected into the specified areas. Treatment is quick, taking only about 10-15 minutes to complete.

Botox Results

There is no downtime required after Botox treatment, so you can go back to your normal activities as soon as you wish. You may be asked to take the rest of the day off from strenuous exercise. Mild redness, bruising, and swelling may occur at the injection site but should resolve over time. Results will be seen 3-7 days after treatment and should last for 3-6 months.
