Botox can help improve:

  • Excessive facial wrinkles
  • Large wrinkles or furrows in your forehead
  • Small wrinkles or “crow’s feet” around your eyes
  • A vertical “frown line” between your eyebrows

How does it work?

A small amount of Botox is injected into the area of the wrinkle.   Botox takes effect by blocking the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles, thereby relaxing them and causing the skin to smooth out. 

How long does it last?

The effects of botox treatment will last approximately three to six months, after which the procedure should be repeated for optimal long term results.

The Recovery Process

Patients generally return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure; however, following the post-procedure instructions will ensure that you obtain the full benefits of your treatment.  Patients should avoid engaging in heavy physical exercise, applying cosmetics, or laying down flat for a minimum of 4 hours after the injections.  It is also advisable to avoid rubbing or massaging the injected area for at least 24 hours.
