The most popular cosmetic procedure in North America.

Are you looking for a cosmetic procedure that will make you look 5-10 years younger without surgery?  A safe procedure with very few potential side effects?

BOTOX injections offer dramatic improvements in:

Upper forehead lines

Crows feet

Frown lines
 
BOTOX is commonly used to lift the eyebrow and widen the eyes,

as well as smoothing out lower eyelid wrinkles with further opening of the eyes.
It can also be used in the nose to weaken "bunny lines".

BOTOX injections offer dramatic improvements the jowls (masseter muscles) to soften the face, and shape it so it becomes less square, and more "V" shaped.
Botox is an effective treatment for perioral elastosis or "smokers lines"
Other effective Botox treatments include softening of vertical neck bands (Platysmal bands)

Reversal of perpetual frowning mouth (Depressor angularis oris) and

Smoothing excessive chin dimpling (Mentalis muscles)



Minute amounts of BOTOX are injected in the muscle of facial expression that produces these lines.

The muscles are weakened and the results are amazing.

The effects of treatment wear off in 2-5 months.

BOTOX is the trade name for botulism toxin that has been used for more than 3 decades in children and adults for treatment of muscle spasms and contractures.

Over 30 years of clinical experience involving hundreds of thousands of patients are a testimony to the potential benefits of this treatment.

The results of BOTOX in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures (i.e.; Facial resurfacing and Juvederm) are dramatic.

Patient Information

BOTOX is not recommended if pregnant or breastfeeding.

BOTOX is not recommended in patients with active Neuro muscular disease conditions. eg. Myasthenia Gravis

You see the benefits of the procedures within 5 to 7 days. The effects of the treatment wear off over 2 to 5 months. After repeated sessions it has been noted that the injection amounts decrease and the time between treatments are longer.

With proper injection technique side effects and complications have been minimal.

  • Occasional slight swelling and/or bruising may occur. In patients with very lax forehead tissue, anatomical variation may cause the eyebrows to droop when correcting upper forehead lines
  • Anatomical variation can result in mouth drooping when correcting perpetual frowning mouth or "smokers lines"
  • Very rarely, with Botox correction of the frown area, a slight eyelid droop may occur. This problem is usually transient lasting only a few weeks and can be corrected with eye drops.
  • Over correction (using too much product) will result in a denser and prolonged area correction.
  • Patients with larger and thicker facial muscles will require more product to achieve correction.
