What is Botox?

Botox (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is a purified protein that is administered in a simple, non-surgical procedure to temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and also the horizontal lines of the forehead and the ”crows feet” lines by the eyes seen when you squint.

How does  Botox work?

Very low doses of Botox are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles responsible for the lines. By blocking the release of the chemical that causes these muscles to contract, Botox enables them to relax , so that the skin appears smoother.

What is botox treatment like?

Botox is administered during a simple, 10 minute treatment in the office.  Some advantages of Botox:

  1. BulletNon-surgical - Tiny injections are administered directly into the muscles that cause frown lines between the brows

  2. BulletNo downtime - Often called a lunchtime procedure, treatment is brief and requires no recovery.

  3. BulletMinimal and brief discomfort - no anesthesia is required.

How quickly will I see a difference?
