BOTOX® Cosmetic (Neurotoxins)

Wrinkles are a natural part of getting older. Skin becomes thinner and loses volume as we age, giving wrinkles more room to form. But wrinkles don’t have to be your reality. FDA-approved BOTOX® Cosmetic is the number one non-surgical treatment for facial wrinkles and creases.

With only a few injections that can be given in as little as 15 minutes, you could see dramatic wrinkle reduction results and say hello to smoother, younger-looking skin.

What is BOTOX® and How Does It Work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment using a purified neurotoxin, onabotulinumtoxinA, to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Commonly applied to the forehead, around the eyes, and mouth, BOTOX® works by temporarily paralyzing the underlying muscles responsible for wrinkle formation, leading to a smoother, more youthful facial appearance. The procedure is brief, largely pain-free, and allows for an immediate return to daily activities. BOTOX® has been in use for over 20 years, is FDA-approved, and is considered a safe and effective method for reducing visible signs of aging, while maintaining natural facial expressions.

What are the benefits of BOTOX®?

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that takes only minutes to administer and can be performed in your doctor's office. The procedure is quick and easy, with results lasting up to four months.

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections temporarily improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. It prevents the muscles from contracting and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. The procedure is virtually painless, but you may feel mild discomfort. You can resume your regular daily routine after treatment.

The benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic go beyond its cosmetic use. There is evidence that it can improve several health conditions, such as TMJ and other severe muscle spasms. Additionally, it can be used to treat chronic migraines and excessive sweating.
