Our team of professionals and staff believe that informed patients are better equipped to make decisions regarding their health and well-being. For your personal use, we have created an extensive patient library covering an array of educational topics, which can be found on the side of each page. Browse through these diagnoses and treatments to learn more about topics of interest to you.
As always, you can contact our office to answer any questions or concerns.
Everyone has unique expressions. We move our facial muscles in a repetitive way and over time those repetitive movements cause wrinkles and fine lines. When you start to experience the signs of aging, Botox® is available to diminish unwanted wrinkles and creases in your face.
Botox® blocks the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which triggers the muscle contractions that create wrinkles. Botox® essentially paralyzes the muscles and stops them from contracting. Results from Botox® are visible within two to four days with results that can last anywhere from four to six months.
Botox® cosmetic treatments can be used to improve:
- Worry lines in your forehead
- Lines between the eyebrows
- Smile lines
- Laugh lines from nose to mouth
- Crow’s feet
Generally, anyone in good health who has fairly shallow fine lines and wrinkles may be good candidates for Botox® treatments.
Most patients require retreatment to remove wrinkles and lines as they begin to reappear, but after each injection the wrinkles return as less severe as the muscles are trained to relax. The procedure does not require anesthesia and usually takes just a few minutes to perform. Botox® treatments can help both men and women rejuvenate and revitalize their appearance.
