Botox is a safe, non-surgical method to treat facial wrinkles and frown lines. It works by one of our doctors administering a few tiny injections into the muscles responsible for creating frowns and wrinkles. The Botox blocks the release of a chemical that causes the muscles to contract and enables them to relax. Your skin is left dramatically smoothers, rested and healthier looking. No anesthesia is required; however your doctor may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream.
Botox is a quick and simple treatment that typically takes no longer than 10 to 15 minutes. There is little to no recovery time and substantial improvement can be seen just a few days after the procedure. How long each treatment lasts depends on several individual factors, such as the depth of the lines, intensity of the wrinkles and the amount of sun damage on the skin. Botox lasts 3 to 6 months on most clients.
