It’s a common misconception that the only way to achieve smoother, firmer skin as well as plumper lips and more attractive facial contours is through plastic surgery. Injectable products such as Botox and dermal fillers provide many of the same benefits of surgical procedures (e.g., facelift, brow lift) without the investment or downtime.
Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin that treats lines and wrinkles around the eye area (e.g., frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead furrows). When injected, Botox blocks the muscular nerve signals, which prevents the muscles from contracting and causing facial wrinkles. Regular Botox injections will diminish facial wrinkles that occur from smiling, frowning, squinting and chewing. Botox may also be used to smooth skin bands on the neck.
We will assess your personal skin care needs and recommend the product(s) that will provide the results you are looking for.
Treatment with Botox or one of our dermal fillers is quick, convenient and minimally invasive. The injections should not take more than 15 to 20 minutes.
We will mark strategic points around your face to help guide us as we administer the injections. Before starting the injections, we will cleanse the treatment area and may give you a topical anesthetic if needed. Then, we will inject the product into the treatment area with a very fine needle. The number of injections that you will need depends on several factors, including the size of the treatment area and the severity of your wrinkles. As a point of reference, crow’s feet usually require fewer injections than furrows above the brow.
