How it works...
Beneath every wrinkle is a muscle nerve. We inject micro-doses of neuromodulators into the end of that nerve to temporarily block – or freeze – its impulses and allow the facial muscles to relax. The result? Skin that's softer-looking, smoother, renewed.
Why we love it...
When artfully administered, Botox gives skin a renewed, smoothed-out appearance that looks natural. This FDA approved treatment has been used medically since the 1970s, so we know it’s safe. It's highly effective with zero downtime.

How Does Botox Work?
Botox is an injectable treatment that prevents muscle contraction. When the muscles relax, wrinkles begin to fade.
- It's non-surgical and noninvasive
- Smooths dynamic lines in the face and neck
- Produces a younger and friendlier appearance
- Requires zero recovery time
Botox reverses forehead wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, neck bands and more. If you’re interested in a wrinkle relaxing treatment, book a complimentary consultation with our experts! During your consultation, you can make a treatment plan with your provider based on your goals.
What Can I Expect at My Treatment?
At your Botox appointment, your doctor may apply a topical anesthetic on the affected area. Next, your provider will administer a few quick injections. Within minutes, you’ll be on your way.
Wrinkle relaxing treatment generally takes 10-15 minutes, and you can go back to work immediately after the appointment. Most patients begin to see results within a few days after injection, but the final outcome will continue to develop for 1-2 weeks.
Is Treatment Safe?
Large doses of the toxin in Botox can be life-threatening, so some individuals may be concerned about the safety of wrinkle relaxing treatments. Fortunately, Botox iswell-studied and considered very safe in small doses.
In fact, only 36 cases of adverse effects of Botox Cosmetic were reported to the FDA between 1989 and 2003. Doctors have learned how to harness the power of the toxin, producing fantastic results while eliminating the side effects.
If you’re still worried about Botox, the best thing you can do is choose an experienced injector. With the right provider, you can reduce your risk of serious side effects to virtually zero.
Botox side effects
Some, but not all patients may experience:
- Mild injection site pain
Side effects will subside rapidly and should not affect daily activities or work.
Is Treatment Right for me?
Healthy men and women with dynamic facial wrinkles are good candidates for Botox; however, if you have deeply-etched wrinkles, Botox might not be right for you.
Women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or planning to become pregnant should wait to get Botox. Individuals with neuromuscular disorders such as ALS or Lambert-Eaton syndrome are not good candidates for Botox.
During your consultation, your injector will ask you about any allergies, current medications etc. We will make sure that Botox is safe and appropriate for you.
Will Botox Give Me The Results I Want?
Botox treatments used to create quite a buzz, but today, they’re becoming mainstream. Recent reports state that cosmetic treatments are on the rise.
In 2016 alone, doctors administered more than 7 million Botox procedures, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and numbers are still increasing.
Here are a few more factors to consider if you’re wondering if Botox is right for you:
- Don’t wait too long: Once the skin is too thin and lined, Botox alone won’t be enough to give you the results you want.
- Botox isn’t for a heavy brow: Patients with heavy eyelids and deeply-wrinkled foreheads probably need a lifting procedure, not Botox.
- Injections can improve facial symmetry: Botox is ideal for patients who would like to create a more symmetric facial appearance.
- Botox can shrink or soften the jawline: Are strong jaw muscles making your face appear large or masculine? Botox will relax the muscles and produce a softer look.
- Check your expectations: Botox is meant to be subtle, so if you’re expecting a dramatic change, ask your provider about your other options.
What Should I Avoid After Treatment?
After your treatment: No lying down for 4 hours; no exercise/working out for 24 hours; no facials for 1 week.
Can I Go Back To Work After My Treatment?
You sure can! The great thing about this treatment is there's virtually no downtime. You might have small red bumps that look like bug bites at first, but they usually go away within the hour and you can waltz back into work with no one the wiser.
When Will I See Results?
Noticeable results should appear around 3 to 5 days. Skin starts to feel tighter; you should see less movement and wrinkling in the injected areas. It can take up to 2 weeks to see the full results. If you have static lines & wrinkles, they may begin to lessen over time and with repeated treatments.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Just like everyone’s hair grows at its own pace, everyone's results last for different lengths of time. But typically, you can expect results to last 3-4 months.
