WHAT IS IT?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles between the brows, crow's feet, nose and forehead. It smooths worry lines, frown lines and bunny lines, and improves both vertical neck wrinkles and horizontal neck bands—also known as turkey neck! Typically, your results will last around three months.
BOTOX® has also been FDA-approved to treat chronic migraine headaches in adults.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
BOTOX® is injected into the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in appearance of those lines and wrinkles. Our expert nurse injector will consult with you before your appointment to ensure that you get the results you desire. The treatment only takes about 15 minutes, allowing you to return to your daily activities as soon as you leave your appointment.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE?
BOTOX® is safe for patients ages 18 and higher and all skin types.
