Botox®

Do people say you look angry? Are your mid-forehead lines deep, making you appear unhappy? 

Do you have wrinkles on your forehead? Are there deep laugh lines around your eyes? 

What caused wrinkles on the lower forehead, between the eyes? How about those on the forehead? And those smile lines around your eyes called crows feet? 

We may have a way to help you. 

The vertical lines between the eyebrows are the direct result of repeated muscular action of the muscles used for facial expression. Years of squinting and frowning leave deep wrinkles in the skin between eyebrows. After many years of frowning combined with the weathering action of the sun, the skin is left with deep vertical lines, which are there even when the face is at rest. You look like you are mad even when you're not. 

The laugh lines around your eyes and the horizontal lines on your forehead are often caused by your expression, as well as sun damage. There has never been a satisfactory solution to these problems until Botox® Cosmetic. 

What is Botox® Cosmetic?

Botox® is a medication that can only be prescribed to you by a healthcare professional. It is used to temporarily treat patients between the ages of 18 and 65. Botox® treatments are quick, comfortable, and within hours you will begin to notice a difference in the way your skin looks and feels. 

How does Botox® Work? 

Botox® uses a special protein to block overactive nerve impulses, restricting muscle contractions. In doing so, Botox® helps to relax the muscles beneath the skin, so that fine lines and wrinkles become less visible, giving the skin a healthy, more youthful appearance. 

Depending on each individual case, the results typically last between four and six months. Usually, as more treatments are received, the longer the results last. Once the Botox® begins to wear off, the skin will return to the way it looked before treatment, unless continued therapy is maintained. 

Botox® is also used to relive symptoms of TMJ, as well as provide comfort to patients receiving dental implants. In each case, Botox® is use to reduce the amount of stress placed on the teeth and jaw so that patients feel comfortable and confident. 

FDA approved for crows feet and glabellar lines.
