Unlike dermal fillers, which add volume to your skin in order to smooth out wrinkles, BOTOX® blocks a chemical trigger called acetylcholine that causes your facial muscles to contract. These muscle contractions are what cause wrinkles and fine lines to appear on your face. By blocking the nerve impulses that trigger these muscles, BOTOX® forces them to relax, helping drastically reduce deep-set wrinkles. BOTOX® is most often used to target:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Forehead lines

Treatment with BOTOX® consists of a series of mild injections that most of our patients find extremely easy to tolerate. In fact, the BOTOX® procedure is so simple that it usually only takes around 15 minutes to complete.
