What Does Botox Do?
This treatment is well known for its ability to smooth away fine facial lines like crow’s feet, upper lip lines, and frown lines that sometimes form on the forehead or between the brows. This injectable softens the appearance of lines that form as a result of smiling, frowning, and other facial expressions many of us make daily. These lines are known as dynamic wrinkles.
Smooth Chin Dimples
As we age, fat loss in the chin area can lead to lines and dimples. This treatment can be administered in a way that smooths over those divots in the lower face, giving the chin a fresh, firm, and more youthful appearance.
Realign the Eyebrows
Are your eyebrows misaligned or sagging, leaving you with a perpetually frustrated or tired appearance? Botox can be used to bring the eyebrows back into a normal alignment and position.
Tighten Neck Skin
This injectable can relax the muscles that contribute to lines and wrinkles in the neck area, giving you smoother and more youthful skin.
Correct a Smile That Shows Too Much Gum
If your natural smile reveals too much of your gums, this amazing treatment can correct the issue. When Botox is injected into the area between your upper lip and nose, it can minimize the degree to which the upper lip rises during a smile, giving patients a more natural smile.
Address Medical Concerns
Although this injectable is primarily used for cosmetic reasons, it can sometimes help with medical issues such as migraine headaches, eye muscle disorders, and even teeth grinding.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Appointments are quick, easy, and convenient. At the beginning of your session, we may make a few marks on your skin, which we’ll use as guides when administering the injections. Patients then recline comfortably in a treatment chair while we make several brief injections. You’ll feel a quick series of pricks, and then your appointment will be over and you’ll be able to get back to your regular schedule.
Most appointments can be completed in less than an hour, making this an ideal lunch hour treatment.
When Will I See Results?
For most of our patients, it takes two or three days for their results to develop, with their full results becoming visible in 14 days. A single appointment will give you results that can last several months, and when your results begin to fade, you’ll have the option of scheduling a follow-up injection.
How Does This Treatment Work?
Botox is part of a class of treatments known as neuromodulators. These treatments use botulinum toxin to paralyze nerves and slow down some of the underlying muscle activity that drives facial expressions and the fine lines created by those repeated expressions.
What Advantages Are Associated With This Treatment?
Patients love the convenience associated with this non-surgical, injectable treatment. Appointments are brief and this treatment involves no downtime. Turning back the clock on your appearance has never been so easy.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will I Need To Take Any Special Precautions After This Treatment?
There are a couple of steps you can take to ensure your best results after treatment. It’s a good idea to refrain from laying down for four hours, and if the injections were performed on your forehead, try not to wear a tight-fitting hat or headband immediately after treatment. During the first 24 hours after treatment, avoid massaging the skin around the injection site.
What’s the Best Age for Treatment?
The right age to seek out this treatment is whenever you’re bothered by early signs of aging and ready to take action. Many patients turn to Botox in their thirties or forties when fine facial lines begin to appear. Others begin receiving occasional treatments in their twenties as a way of warding off the aging process.
Will This Treatment Get Rid of All My Wrinkles?
This treatment is especially effective on dynamic wrinkles, which are the lines caused by repeated facial expressions. It is not always the best option for patients looking to treat static wrinkles, which are those that develop as collagen levels in the skin decline as part of the natural aging process. If static wrinkles are your primary concern, we may recommend another treatment option for you.
Does Insurance Cover This Treatment?
Because this treatment is most often performed for cosmetic purposes, health insurance frequently does not cover it. Insurance plans occasionally cover these injections if they are performed for a medical purpose.
How Many Injections Will Be Necessary?
The number of injections performed will be determined by your cosmetic concern, and we’ll be able to make a recommendation after evaluating your skin. To address crow’s feet, we may recommend three injections around each eye, and for forehead lines, we may recommend five injections.
