Botox Cosmetic is the most popular non-surgical treatment performed across the country. This injectable comes from a naturally occurring and refined toxin called botulinum that is used for both cosmetic and medicinal purposes.

Wrinkles tend to build up around the brows, forehead, and eyes.. These marks become more pronounced over time from talking and forming normal facial expressions, like smiling and frowning.  At first, these wrinkles are “dynamic” only, and they form only when the associated muscle contracts.  Over time, the dynamic wrinkle becomes a “static” wrinkle, one that is present at all times, even when the person is not frowning or smiling.   It is best to treat these kinds of wrinkles with Botox before they make the transition from dynamic to static wrinkle.

Botox Cosmetic is so easy that it can be administered on your lunch break during a weekday. This quick and easy facial-rejuvenation treatment weakens targeted muscles, thus preventing them from wrinkling the skin.

Each treatment is tailored individually to the patient’s goals and lasts approximately three months depending on the patient, the amount used and frequency of visits.

It is best to have your Botox performed by a provider who closely understands the muscular anatomy of the face and who understands the anatomical differences in facial structure from one patient to another.   No two patients should ever have the exact same Botox treatment, since every face is different and special.
