Every time you frown, squint, wrinkle your nose, or purse your lips, your skin folds. Over time these folds tend to settle into the lasting creases we call wrinkles. Botox treatments have been proven to effectively erase wrinkles and restore smoother, younger-looking skin. Combine that with a quick, painless treatment that requires no recovery time, and it’s no wonder Botox is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures.
Botox works by interfering with the muscle contractions that cause crow’s feet, frown lines, lines on the sides of the nose, and other unsightly creases. If poorly applied by an inexperienced practitioner, Botox can result in the infamous “Botox Mask,” a motionless face, seemingly incapable of expression. We ensure that you get only the best from a Botox treatment by precisely pinpointing the injections to gain the desired effect without loss of expression.
Properly placed Botox may also be used to release or lift parts of the face that may be pulled in an unflattering way. For example, we offer the popular Botox brow lift that relaxes the muscles pulling down on the eyebrows, giving you a tired look. This quick procedure lifts the brow, tightening and smoothing the eyelids and restoring a look of youthful alertness.
Botox has been used in medical applications for many years. Its safety and effectiveness have been well demonstrated. Treatment is fast and comfortable, and you can return to your normal activities immediately. The full effects take a few days to become visible, so there is no sudden, noticeable change in your appearance. The effects then fade gradually over a period of months. Follow-on treatments can maintain the desired effects.
