Why Botox®?

 Botox® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe wrinkles such as frown lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet, and worry lines. These are called “dynamic wrinkles” as they occur when the muscles under the skin contract when we frown, smile and laugh. When the muscles under the skin contract while we frown, smile and laugh. Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. The 11s – those vertical lines that appear between your brows – result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to crease and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest.


How does BOTOX® work?

Botox® works by temporarily blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This weakens and reduces muscle activity that causes the persistent lines to form and as a result, the wrinkles diminish.




Cosmetic will improve or eliminate worry lines, crow’s feet, and soften the lines around the mouth.


It corrects wrinkles by relaxing facial muscle action that causes them. Within 3 to 5 days, the treated areas will begin to soften and smooth out, and the wrinkles will continue to fade over the course of the next few weeks.  Cost depends on desired effect and number of areas treated.

*Results can vary between patients. Every patient is a unique individual and every procedure has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results. In terms of results and expectations, there are numerous variables with every patient, each treatment and every recovery and healing period.
