Botox® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a safe medication and a simple, quick procedure that temporarily relaxes muscles to smooth creases or wrinkles. The most common areas treated are between the eyebrows “the number 11’s”, the forehead lines and around the eyes “crows feet”. These are the creases that not only age a person, but also cause you to look tired, mad or sad. By examining how your muscles create these creases, our physicians artistically target the correct muscles to smooth and lift. The average amount used: between the eyebrows (15-30 units), forehead lines (10-15 units) and crows feet (6-18 units). Amounts vary depending on muscle strength and how much muscle relaxation you wish to achieve. There are many other areas where BOTOX® can be used including the crinkle nose lines “bunny nose”, lines around the mouth “smoker’s lines”, chin dimpling and droopy corners of the mouth-to help turn the frown up-side-down. Our physicians will assess your facial expressions and determine the placement and amount that’s right for YOU.
