Are you considering doing a little something for yourself with Botox injections? We would be happy to assess your concerns and create a treatment plan based on your specific needs. Aging skin and wrinkles result from a blend of several causes. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. The 11s – those vertical lines that appear between your brows – result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest. BOTOX works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes the persistent lines to form between the brows.
Getting Botox takes only a few minutes and doesn’t require anesthesia.
With real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time.
Botox stays local to the muscle where it was injected. After the injection, Botox is simply metabolized and broken down into natural byproducts within a few hours.
Botox injection is not permanent. The visible results usually last about 3-4 months, but everyone can be different.
Most patients may see improvement within a couple of days after Botox injection. however, it takes up to 2 weeks for full results.
Side effects are rare and not permanent. Rarely, there can be some minor bruising, localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling and redness. Most Botox patients do not experience any side effects.
