What is an Botulinum Toxin?

Botulinum toxin is performed to relax and smooth the look of lines and wrinkles that can be caused by repetitive movements of the face. The most common areas for botulinum toxin is between the brows, crows-feet located around the eyes, and horizontal forehead creases. Botulinum toxin can also be used for various reasons such as medically to reduce perspiration, to treat migraine headaches and muscle spasms, and to cosmetically balance facial asymmetry and relax tight neck bands.

Facial expressions can cause wrinkles around the eyes and forehead, leaving you to look tired, angry, or upset. Relaxing the muscles will leave you looking youthful and refreshed! Botulinum toxin may also relieve pain suffered from migraines or headaches.

The Procedure

Botulinum toxin is a simple and quick procedure that can be performed the same day as initial evaluation. Numbing is not required prior to injection and we only use the thinnest of needles, meaning minimal discomfort. It does take several days after injection for your procedure to reach full effect and a follow up appointment may be needed if more product is warranted. Your doctor will help you determine the number and placement of injections based upon your aesthetic goals and past injections.

The Recovery

Any redness that may have occurred during injection usually resides quickly upon leaving the clinic. Returning to your normal day-to-day routine immediately following injection is permitted, however you should avoid strenuous activities. You should also avoid massaging or touching the injected area to prevent the spread of the botulinum toxin to other areas. If bruising occurs, it will resolve quickly.

The Financing

Botulinum toxin is an elective procedure and therefore is not covered by most insurance companies. However, we offer several options for financing and we will work with you to come up with an aesthetic plan and financing that suits your needs.
