Diminish the natural signs of aging with long known easy treatments with Botox
How does BOTOX work?
Botox is a cosmetic injectable that works by temporarily (usually 3-4 months) freezing your facial muscles to improve your appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This works by weakening or temporarily freezing the muscles into which it is injected. When these muscles cannot move, the wrinkles on your skin are reduced.
What are the benefits of BOTOX?
Botox is an attractive treatment option for adults who want to prevent or correct certain signs of aging, those that are caused by various facial movements. Some of the reasons for this include the following benefits:
Botox treatments take less than half an hour.
Small needle size eliminates the need for local anesthetic or numbing cream.
Results appear gradually over 5 to7 days.
Improvements achieved with Botox can last from 3 to 6 months. Most patients schedule touch-ups about every 4 months.
Botox has been thoroughly tested and vetted for safety and efficacy.
Is BOTOX safe?
Botox is very safe and has been in common use. Botox was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2002. Since that time it has become the most common cosmetic procedure in the United States.
Like all drugs and medical procedures, side effects are possible so please speak with your physician. Side effects from Botox are rare. The vast majority of patients can receive this treatment without complication. Possible side effects include dry mouth, discomfort or pain at the injection site. Uncommonly, tiredness, headache, neck pain, eye problems and allergic reactions may occur.
Only your doctor can decide if BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you.
Before starting treatment, ask your doctor if you:

Who are the ideal candidates for BOTOX?
Many adults can be good candidates for Botox injections. Ideal candidates are in good general health and do not have skin inflammation or infection in the treatment area. Botox is suitable for what are called dynamic wrinkles, those that are caused by moving the muscles around the eyes, forehead, and mouth. Examples include frown lines and crow’s feet.
How Long until I see results from BOTOX?
You should see results within a few days of your initial treatment. You will likely see results 2 to 4 days after injection, with the maximum effect occurring at about 10 to 14 days and lasting for up to three months. Over time, results can be maintained with continued injections.
How long do BOTOX injections take?
The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes, perfect for a busy individual!
What is the recovery from BOTOX?
No downtime is needed to recover from Botox injections. Most patients return to work or other normal activities immediately after their appointment. We recommend avoiding work out for 12 to 24 hours after receiving injections. The treatment area should also not be rubbed or massaged for a short time.
How much does BOTOX cost?
Botox treatment is customized to each patient. Cost is determined by the amount of product needed to achieve the desired outcome. Additionally, some patients combine Botox with injections of dermal fillers to reach a more significant level of rejuvenation.
