BOTOX

BOTOX Cosmetic is a quick and minimally invasive procedure. You doctor makes a few tiny injections into the muscles that cause moderate to severe frown lines between your brows.

Your doctor will determine exactly where to administer the injections to achieve the best results. No anesthesia is required, although a cold pack or anesthetic cream may be used to numb the area prior to injection.

The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes, and there is no downtime afterward. Discomfort is minimal and brief. Localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising may be associated with the injection.

You can expect to see results within days after your treatment. The appearance of the area between your brows may continue to improve for up to a week.

BOTOX injections help minimize or eliminate deep wrinkles caused by muscle contraction. This method is used primarily for wrinkle lines of the forehead, between the eyebrows, and the crow's feet next to the eyes. Botox injections are simple, effective and allow you to return to work immediately. Result last four-to-six months and can be repeated.
