Your BOTOX Cosmetic Treatment

Model ImageOver 11 million women and men have experienced the benefits of BOTOX Cosmetic because it effectively treats "dynamic wrinkles" – those caused by repeated facial expressions. This nonsurgical FDA-approved treatment is recommended for women and men with early signs of aging, and experienced skin care professionals can help to ensure safety and natural looking results.

People who frequent our medical spa often schedule BOTOX Cosmetic treatments once every 3 to 6 months. The procedure takes as little as 15 minutes, with slight variations depending on your desired results.

During the procedure, a series of small injections are made in specific areas of your face. The formula works by blocking nerve impulses to facial muscles, decreasing their ability to contract and cause wrinkles. The underlying muscles become relaxed and smooth the surface skin for natural-looking results.

Setting Expectations for Recovery & Results

Any pain felt during the procedure is minimal, and redness or swelling should subside within hours of treatment. Results vary from person to person, and it's important to discuss any allergies or skin concerns you have with our skin care professionals prior to treatment.

Although results aren't immediate, you can expect to see noticeably smoother skin within just a few days. Your BOTOX treatment results will continue to improve the state of your complexion for up to 30 days. Visible results vary from person to person, but most patients can expect results to last up to 4 months.
