What is Botox® Treatment?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified non-animal protein. It can improve the look of moderate-to-sever lines when injected into certain facial and neck muscles.

How does BOTOX® Work?

Botox temporarily blocks the nerve impulses to injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes lines to form on the neck and face. An experienced healthcare professional must administer BOTOX®. BOTOX® is a low discomfort, nonsurgical treatment.

Why Choose BOTOX®?

There are several reasons why BOTOX® Cosmetic has been chosen by millions of patients and their doctors: noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time are just a few. You might feel that the mild to severe wrinkles between your brows make you look older, tired or have other reasons for being curious about BOTOX® Cosmetic. Ask our nurse practitioners about BOTOX® Cosmetic to find out if it is the right choice for you.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is inserted by injection into muscles and used to smooth the look of moderate-to-severe lines between the brows. The effect can last for up to four months.

How does Xeomin® work?

Muscle activity can cause moderate to severe lines to appear between the brow.    Xeomin® works by obstructing nerve impulses to the injected muscles, reducing muscle activity.  This relaxation usually lasts for about 3-4 months.  After that,  the treated muscles slowly go back to their original condition. Xeomin® only affects the muscles, not the nerves, so there is no numbness in the treated regions. Our practitioners are highly trained and do this in a way that does not change your natural features and expressions.

Treatment Areas

The forehead is a noticeable area where lines and wrinkles start to appear. Wrinkles tend to show up when showing surprise or excitement due to worry, stress, and aging.

The Glabellar Region also referred to as “elevens” because lines matching the number eleven usually appear between the eyes as we age. These wrinkles are most noticeable while frowning, concentrating, or worrying.

Crow’s feet refer to lines that form around the corners of the eyes matching the foot of a crow or bird. These lines may not be obvious while relaxed but show up most while laughing or smiling depending upon the severity of the creases. Wrinkles can become more noticeable while relaxed if left untreated.
