Botox is a natural, purified protein given in low doses to reduce the contractions of the muscles that cause wrinkles. As we age, these muscles tend to stay contracted, causing us to look sad, mad, worried, or tired.
Botox reduces wrinkles on the forehead and the frown lines between the eyebrows. They are also great for the crow’s feet, bunny lines (the little crinkles on the nose), and lift or even out your brows. Other uses for Botox include treating excessive underarm sweating and grinding of the jaw.request an appointment

What To Expect During A Botox Treatment?
If you’ve been considering Botox, but can’t make up your mind, here’s what to expect during a Botox treatment!
If you bruise easily, you can reduce your risk of bruising by avoiding ibuprofen, aspirin, and over-the-counter supplements before your treatment.
Before the procedure, the provider will cleanse your skin and apply a numbing cream. The skincare provider performs a series of injections at each treatment area.
The injections are quick, and a tiny needle causes minimal to no discomfort. Pressure is applied after each injection to minimize bleeding and bruising.
How Long Does The Result Last?
Most patients start to see a difference 2-8 days after treatment. You should be able to see the full effects of the treatment after a couple of weeks.
Botox usually lasts on average 3-4 months depending on how the person responds to treatment.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Botox is highly effective in the areas where signs of aging are seen most, including the lips, brow, forehead, around the eyes.
