What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable treatment made from botulinumtoxin Type A. When injected into muscle tissue, it binds to the nerve receptors and blocks chemical signals that normally cause movement. This process is called neuromodulation, and it can be very effective for lifting areas of the face, preventing wrinkle formation, and relaxing tense muscles that cause lines and furrows. Botox has a wide variety of uses, and our team can help you find the right Botox treatment for boosting your look without the need for downtime or surgery.

Is Botox Right for Me?

Botox is an easy, quick, and low-cost way to transform your confidence. If you’re looking to get rid of forehead lines, crow’s feet, or frown lines, Botox is an excellent option! Additionally, Botox can be used to lift the brow, improve a gummy smile, or even slim the face. Whatever your goals, our team can make the right recommendation for you with Botox and our other non-surgical treatment options.

What Happens During Botox Treatment?

Botox can be performed right in our comfortable office. We’ll start by discussing your goals and any concerns you might have. You’ll also be given a full estimate of your costs. Then, once you’re comfortable, the treatment area will be made ready, and the product will be placed in the muscle using a fine needle. Most patients have very little discomfort during the injection process. Once complete, you’ll be free to return home.

Botox Maintenance

In order to get the best results from your Botox treatment, you’ll be given some care steps to follow. This includes keeping your head elevated and avoiding exercise after your session. Additionally, you should avoid touching or massaging the skin since this can cause the product to spread to unwanted areas. Botox takes between 2-4 days to produce results with your full results emerging around 2 weeks later. You can return for a touch-up appointment as necessary, and you can expect your results to last for 3-6 months.
