Botox is a neuromodulator, literally causing relaxation of specific muscles and offering
remarkable treatment that erases frown lines, worry lines, and crow’s feet. It also maximizes and extends the results achieved through laser skin treatments. Treatments are nearly painless, and effects last 3-6 months.

Will I have to use it forever?
Botox usually lasts 3-6 months, by which point the muscles that cause the frown lines or other wrinkles are fully active again. Most people choose to repeat the treatment at that point to maintain their results. For those who do not, however, their facial expressions and muscle motion continue stay normal, just like before they ever had Botox.
How does it work?
Botox prevents your nerves from telling your facial muscles to flex. The result? 5 months of temporarily improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines.
How frequently do I need treatments?
Not exactly – Botox is the purified toxin produced by the botulism bacteria! They work by selectively relaxing muscles that contribute to frown lines and certain other facial wrinkles. So why don’t you get botulism? The amount of Botox I would need to inject all at once to give you botulism is over 100 times the amount given in an average session, and there is no cumulative effect from session to session.
What is it like before & after treatment?
If you are a little nervous, that’s okay! Localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, erythema, and/or bleeding/bruising may be associated with the injection. We use a 32G (tiny tiny tiny) needle and some sticks are barely felt. For specific instructions on what to do before and after your injection, please talk to your provider.
What are the size effects
The most commonly reported side effects in clinical trials include headache, eyelid drooping, upper respiratory tract infection and increased white blood cell count.
Will I lose normal facial expression?
No. Great BOTOX® Cosmetic means looking younger and more relaxed – not looking frozen. When properly placed, BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes the muscles that cause frown lines or other wrinkles but does not otherwise limit your range of normal facial expressions.
