Botox

Often described as the “fountain of youth,” our BOTOX® treatment is the brand name for Botulinum Toxin Type A. BOTOX® was developed by dermatologists in 1980 to treat muscle disorders, such as uncontrolled blinking, and was later put to cosmetic uses for the first time in 1987.

What is Botox?

Currently, our BOTOX® treatment is being used primarily to treat frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet and other wrinkles and fine lines that tend to accumulate over time and are the result of years of squinting and frowning. BOTOX® works on these wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the underlying muscles and results are seen just a few days following the BOTOX® treatment.

Is Botox Right For Me?

BOTOX® can also be very beneficial for patients with sweaty palms. This condition, also known as hyperhidrosis, can be very bothersome for people, especially in professions where they are regularly required to shake hands. The treatment is simple and involves tiny injections of BOTOX® on the palms. Hyperhydrosis is also common for overly sweaty arm pits. Results last for months at a time and patients have reported a very high satisfaction rate. Special pricing for this area applies, so please ask when you call for your appointment.

How is Botox Performed?

Very small needles are used to target areas where muscle relaxation will allow for elimination of lines and furrows on the face.  The forehead typically requires 7 injections, the frown lines 5 injections, and the crow’s feet 3 to 4 injections per side.  The injections are typically quite tolerable.

Botox Recovery

After your treatment, you might have some redness or swelling. This will normally last for only a few hours — a day or two at most, although everyone is different. Sun exposure should be avoided until any redness or swelling disappears.
