Botox® Cosmetic is a natural, purified protein that is used to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause fines lines and wrinkles. Common areas for Botox treatment include the “11” lines (frown lines), crow’s feet and forehead lines. Botox® Cosmetic can also be used to treat medical conditions, such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), teeth grinding, muscle spasms and migraines. Wrinkles are caused by repeated facial movements over time. If you relax those muscles movements early on, the wrinkle may never form! Don’t think you started early enough? Don’t worry! Botox® Cosmetic is likely to make you look and feel better no matter what age you start.
Every patient is different, but most people see optimal results one to two weeks after treatment. Results typically last three to four months. You may experience some slight bruising and swelling right after your treatment. Otherwise, there is no significant downtime.

Botox Fun Fact
Did you know that Botox® can help with depression? According to a study by M. Axel Wollmer it appears that your muscles may be “involved in the development and maintenance of negative emotions.” The theory is that that Botox® interrupts the feedback from your muscles to your brain and relaxing those muscles can help with depression.
