Botox® Cosmetic injections are a great way to get rid of those pesky lines in between your brows, on your forehead or around your eyes (lovingly known as crow’s feet). Botox® is quick, painless and requires no downtime. Our certified Nurse Practitioners inject safe doses of Botox® Cosmetic to relax the muscles and smooth out those lines. The needles used are extremely tiny and cause minimal discomfort. Botox® is FDA-approved, is widely used in 98 countries and is a safe and effective treatment with more than 16 years of testing and studies behind it. A treatment can be completed in under 15 minutes. You’ll love the results, which typically last for 3-6 months.
Many of the lines we see on our face are due to the dynamic facial expressions we perform every day, often without even knowing it. Botox® Cosmetic is an easy, temporary way to eliminate these types of lines. It’s also a great way to help prevent future fine lines and existing wrinkles from deepening!
Here’s how it works. A very small dose of the natural neurotoxin is injected into the area and temporarily stops the facial muscles from contracting and causing wrinkling in the skin. After the treatment, your skin appears much smoother. You should plan to have your appointment on a day that isn’t too busy or stressful. Although you’ll be able to continue with your normal routine immediately after the procedure, you should avoid laying down, rubbing the injection site, or exercising for about 3-4 hours. Side effects are minimal but can include minor discomfort, swelling or bruising at the injection site, and/or a mild headache.
