Many individuals desire a more youthful appearance with smooth, wrinkle-free skin; however, they also wish to retain the personality, expressiveness, and individuality the face reveals. BOTOX® Cosmetic, one of the most popular non-surgical aesthetic enhancements in the nation, can often provide the subtle improvement many seek. Furthermore, when injected properly by a trained skin care specialist, BOTOX® injections can appear very natural-looking, as opposed to the “frozen” look some fear. Due to its multitude of benefits, BOTOX® Cosmetic is requested by name by the majority of our patients, and we strive to achieve the singular goals of each person.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is designed to reduce the movement of certain hyperactive muscles that typically cause many creases found on the upper part of the face, including forehead lines, eyebrow furrows (sometimes called 11s), and crow’s feet. It can be combined with dermal fillers to help correct common signs of aging in the lower face—often referred to as a Liquid Facelift—and it can also be combined with laser skin resurfacing to smooth skin tone and texture. Together or alone, BOTOX® injections can help many individuals look great at any age while maintaining their unique beauty.
Our patients report that they love how quick, easy, and effective BOTOX® Cosmetic can be. Many choose to receive treatment during lunch breaks and return to work following the procedure. Benefits are commonly visible after a few days with full results manifesting after approximately two weeks. Effects are temporary, and we recommend individuals return for “touch-up” treatment about every four to six months.
