Treat Facial Muscles and Reverse Signs of Aging
We offer Botox® Cosmetic Injections for patients wanting to appear more rested, relaxed, and refreshed.
REDUCE FINE LINES & WRINKLES
These treatments are wrinkle-relaxing botulinum toxins that are used cosmetically to improve the look of frown lines between the eyebrows, wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth.
Candidates for Botox® Cosmetic Injections are over eighteen years of age and looking to obtain a more rested, relaxed, and refreshed appearance by reducing the lines and wrinkles that appear on the face.
RELAX YOUR FACIAL APPEARANCE
How Does Botox® Work?
Contracted facial muscles cause moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on the face. Neuromodulators such as Botox® are prescription medications of Botulinum Toxin Type A that are injected into muscles to block a muscle’s nerve signals. Once the signal is blocked, the muscle is unable to contract and form the lines of wrinkles that make faces look aged, giving an appearance that is significantly more refreshed and relaxed.
Aside from minimizing lines and wrinkles, botulinum toxin type A injections can also be used to treat neck bands, soften square jawlines, improve skin dimpling of the chin, and lift the corners of the mouth.
“Botox® is an injectable Botulinum Toxin Type A Product. When injected into the muscles of the face, the product safely and effectively work to reduce lines and wrinkles that are caused by habitual everyday expressions and the aging process.”

EXCESSIVE UNDERARM SWEATING
Excessive underarm sweating, or axillary hyperhidrosis, is experienced by many people, which can be both uncomfortable and embarrassing in a variety of interpersonal and social situations.
How does it work?
Botox® can be used to treat excessive underarm sweating by blocking the release of the chemical responsible for stimulating the sweat glands. Botox® is injected directly into the underarm skin and offers patients minimal discomfort and virtually no downtime.
Just one treatment
Patients receiving a single treatment session of Botox® for underarm sweating can see months of relief. Repeating treatments once or twice a year can maintain dryness and control excessive underarm swelling indefinitely.
TREATMENT & RESULTS
Unlike other wrinkle-reducing methods, using Botox® requires no downtime. Many patients receive injections during a lunch hour and return to work after.
Avoiding alcoholic beverages and anti-inflammatory medications, such as Aspirin, prior to Botox® Cosmetic Injections is very important. Scheduling treatments at least two weeks prior to any special meetings or events is also recommended.
Most patients are comfortable while Botox® are injected. Some mild discomfort might be felt but there is no real pain.
Following injection treatments of Botox®, some slight bruising may be noticeable for 1 or 2 days but is temporary and can be easily covered with makeup while the area heals. For most patients, improvement to their facial appearance can be enjoyed within 1 to 10 days following injection treatments.
Typically, results from injections last three to six months and to maintain results longer, maintenance treatments will be necessary.
