Say Goodbye To Wrinkles

BotoxThere’s a reason why so many show business celebrities, whose careers are affected by maintaining a youthful appearance, rely on Botox to keep their skin smooth and wrinkle-free. Since the FDA cleared its usage in 2002, Botox treatments have become the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the United States, restoring a fresh appearance to millions of complexions.

Is Botox for you?

You’ve no doubt heard and read many of the success stories. Perhaps you have a friend or family member who has benefitted from treatment and now you’re wondering if Botox could be the answer for your skin care concerns. The procedure is quick and painless, and the more than 2 million treatments performed per year are a testimony to its safety and effectiveness.

What is involved in the treatment?

The first step is a consultation with one of our skin care professionals to assess whether the process is appropriate for you and discuss your goals. The Doctor will examine movement of the muscles in your brow area to determine the optimum placement of injections. As the two of you finalize a treatment plan, this is also the time to bring up any questions you may have.
On the day of your procedure you won’t require any anesthesia, although your technician may numb the area of the injection with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. Tiny injections are made directly into the muscles that cause the frown lines or crow’s feet that you want to reduce.

What happens post-treatment?

The entire procedure usually takes no more than 10 minutes with no recovery time needed. Your skin care professional will review in detail the instructions for your aftercare program. You may experience mild but temporary side effects such as localized pain, tenderness or swelling.
