Small quantities of Botox® can be injected into discrete facial muscles, blocking the contraction of the facial muscles that create “crow’s feet” and “frown lines.” The resulting relaxation of these facial muscles causes lines of expression to soften, appear less deep, or even disappear completely. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing natural facial expression.
Our board-certified dermatologists have extensive experience with neuromodulators to soften lines that can make you look tired and maybe even angry. BOTOX® an even be used to provide a plumped look to lips. A natural, youthful look is important to us, without causing a frozen, unnatural look. Our goal is to highlight and refresh your unique and natural beauty. Most Botox® treatments last for 4-6 months.
Dysport® and Xeomin® are similar neuromodulators that our dermatologists also use.
BOTOX® FOR HYPERHIDROSIS
Hyperhidrosis is abnormally excessive sweating with no evident cause or trigger. Botox® can be injected into the axilla to block the nerve signals that cause sweating. This in turn prevents excess sweating and body odor. People who receive Botox® injections for hyperhidrosis can expect to experience the effects in two to four days. Typically, patients notice the effects last for about 4-12 months.
