BOTOX® -- What is BOTOX® and is it safe?

BOTOX® is a purified protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. BOTOX® is a muscle relaxant. Using a tiny micro-needle, a very small amount of BOTOX® is injected, very precisely, into several locations on the face - typically the vertical lines between your eyebrows, forehead lines, and lines at the corners of your eyes (crow's feet).

How long does the procedure take?

Following the consultation, the actual procedure takes less than 15 minutes. Since there is no downtime you can do it at lunchtime and no one would know you had it done!

How does BOTOX® work?

How does BOTOX® work?

BOTOX® is injected into a targeted facial expression muscle, blocking impulses from the nerve to the muscle, thereby relaxing the muscle so it does not contract. This causes the overlying skin to become smoother, with fewer lines and wrinkles. After treatment, the skin remains smooth and unwrinkled, while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression and feeling to be unaffected.

How quickly will I see results?

BOTOX® usually starts relaxing the treated area within several days, but the full effect may not be realized for up to 14 days.

How long will BOTOX® last?

The effects last between three and four months on average, but everyone is a little bit different.
