BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the country and one of our most requested services. Quick, safe and effective, BOTOX® reduces or eliminates facial lines and wrinkles for up to six months with no downtime or surgery. Through a series of tiny injections, BOTOX® gives you a rejuvenated look by smoothing crow's feet beneath the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, worry lines around the mouth, and lines on the neck. BOTOX® may also be useful for excessive sweating.
Using a very fine needle, we will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into designated muscles in your face that are causing lines and wrinkles. You may experience brief, mild discomfort during the injection, but you can be assured that the treatment is very safe and effective. Taking only a few minutes, BOTOX® treatment requires no anesthetic and recovery is immediate, allowing you to return to work and resume your normal daily activities that same day.
Immediately following the BOTOX® treatment, some patients may experience mild bruising, which will go away shortly. You will see your wrinkles begin to fade within 24 hours, with continued improvement over the next 5 days. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic typically last up to four to six months, although many have reported results lasting up to a full year. After several BOTOX® treatments, the results may be prolonged.
Restylane is designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips or shape facial contours. With its unique ability to bind with water, Restylane’s hyaluronic acid base plumps and lifts glabellar lines (between the eyebrows) and nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of your mouth). When used for facial contouring, Restylane will add shape and volume to the face.
The procedure usually takes about 15-30 minutes. Most people find the injections relatively painless, but a topical anesthetic can be applied to the area prior to your treatment. You will be able to see the results as soon as your treatment is completed.
During the first 48 hours after your treatment, do not massage or rub the treated area. If you have had a lip enhancement, avoid puckering your lips for the first few days after treatment. You should not expose the treated area to intense heat (e.g. in a solarium or by sunbathing) or extreme cold for the first few days after the treatment in order to avoid the risk of inflammation. Results can last up to 1 year and only one treatment is needed to achieve optimal results.
