BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes the muscles and smoothes existing deep creases and wrinkles. It also prevents the development of permanent architectural changes in the skin structure that will eventually develop into the deep creases that are evident even when your face is completely relaxed.

How is BOTOX® Cosmetic administered?
The careful placement of the BOTOX® Cosmetic injection will ensure that you achieve the smoothest skin surface while maintaining that movement that is critical for a natural appearance and expression. The most experienced physician understands the location and function of the muscles and will help you achieve your desired result.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected in the office under sterile conditions. Precision placement of the solution does require multiple injection sites, as well as a good understanding of your anatomy. Patients are given cool compresses, ice, or topical local cream as needed.
What can I expect after the BOTOX procedure?
After the BOTOX treatment, patients are asked to abstain from intense physical exercise until the following day. Otherwise, your normal routine can be resumed immediately. Because the needles used are so small, cosmetics may be reapplied immediately after the injection.
In general, BOTOX works well for 3–6 months, and then the movement returns quite quickly. This is the optimal time for a re-treatment.
Is BOTOX® Cosmetic safe?
Neurotoxins have become one of the standard non-surgical treatment options to maintain a youthful appearance. Neurotoxin manufacturers have achieved unparalleled success with these injectable “miracle drugs” to eliminate unwanted lines and wrinkles.
