The natural aging process has its consequences. Our faces tell a story and makes a lasting impression on others. Wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet are the result of gravity, decreased collagen production, and airborne pollutants.

Various treatment options are available to combat these visible signs of aging, but many of them involve harsh resurfacing techniques or plumping injections.

BOTOX® is different because it does not require surgery or the introduction of filler compounds. Instead, it uses an agent to relax the facial muscles.

This makes for smoother skin that is visibly younger in appearance. We recommend this treatment for those who are suffering from unsightly wrinkles and frown lines.

When BOTOX® is injected beneath the skin, the muscles become relaxed because they are not receiving information from the brain.

This means smoother-appearing skin without the visually apparent smile lines or forehead wrinkles.

Benefits of BOTOX® Treatment

As a cosmetic treatment, BOTOX® is preferred because the skin itself is not resurfaced. It trains the muscles to relax, meaning that subsequent treatments require less of the compound.

BOTOX® treatments often result in smoother skin that stays supple and firm for up to six months without any further injections or special skin care during this period.

How the Treatment is Performed

We sit down with the client and discuss the entire procedure. Depending on the location and severity of the wrinkles, we may map out a few injection sites.

The injections are performed using a long, ultra-thin needle. There may be some swelling at the sites where the needle penetrates the skin. This is temporary and lasts only a few hours.

The face may feel a bit numb for several hours, and the muscles become relaxed, minimizing wrinkles and fine lines.
