We offer Botox® treatments for both esthetic and therapeutic treatments.
It is used esthetically to prevent or decrease the appearance of wrinkles by reducing muscle movement. The most common areas of treatment include; the glabellar area (the frown lines between the eyes), frontalis muscles (forehead lines), crow’s feet, chin dimples, radial lip lines (smoker’s lines/water bottle lines) and nose lines.
Botox® provides therapeutic relief for patients who suffer from bruxism (unconscious teeth clenching and grinding) and/or patients who suffer from chronic migraines or headaches associated with or without bruxism.
Receiving Botox® takes only a few minutes and there is no need for anesthesia or down time. The injections are made using a very fine needle and are virtually painless. Generally, results are visible within two to ten days.
The effects of Botox® typically last three to four months. As the treated muscles regain movement, lines and wrinkles will begin to reappear and require retreatment. Over time, these lines and wrinkles should appear less noticeable due to training the treated muscles to relax and will thus require less frequent treatment.
