BOTOX® is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available today. Most patients start to notice wrinkles as an early sign of facial aging - deep frown lines, forehead lines and smile lines or crow's feet - which can make you look tired, angry, and older than you actually are. Botox can help you achieve a smoother, more youthful looking face, with far less wrinkles and unwanted lines.
Botox is a safe, reliable injectable that blocks the actions of certain facial nerves. It treats wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that create creases in the skin or that pull the skin down. It is the world’s #1 treatment for improving facial wrinkles. Created from a toxin synthesized by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum, which is where the name Botox comes from.

Your results from Botox injections typically last up to 4 months. Repeat maintenance treatments provide optimal results over time.
If possible, one week prior to your treatment, avoid taking Aspirin, NSAID medications (Advil, Motrin, Aleve or Ibuprofen), gingko biloba, vitamin E or fish oil supplements. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site. Bruising is possible, so we recommend waiting to schedule important social events 1 week following the procedure.
After treatment, it is best to avoid working out or yoga for 12 hours. Normal gentle face washing and wearing makeup can resume immediately following the procedure.
