You may have concerns about how your facial features and skin (as well as the underlying muscles) are affected due to aging and sun damage. You may decide you would like to make some changes, desiring a more youthful appearance.
No matter your aesthetic goals, we can design a complete treatment plan that addresses each of your facial concerns. We are known for sitting with patients for as long as needed to answer questions and customize a treatment plan that is most effective while working within your budget.
During the treatment, we ask you to frown, furrow your eyebrows and smile to see which specific muscle groups need to be targeted in order to give you a smooth face that does not show wrinkles in the places that bother you.
Our injectables are designed to offer our patients a non-invasive, non-surgical method of improving the appearance of facial wrinkles, lines and creases. Our affiliates range from cosmetic injectables supplied by Allergan, Merz, Invasix, Cynosure SmartLipo, and many more. We often use BOTOX® and dermal fillers together for best results in order to achieve a more youthful look.

Introduced in 2002, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first botulinum toxin to be approved by the FDA to temporarily treat moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. It is designed for use in adults between 18 and 65 years of age for a short (temporary) period of time. It must be administered by a healthcare professional.
Out of approximately 11.8 million BOTOX® Cosmetic procedures that have been administered in the United States since 2002, the majority of patients surveyed were satisfied with the results of their experience.
This neuro-toxin paralyzes the muscles by preventing the release of a chemical in the muscles called acetylcholine, effectively blocking the nerve impulses to the injected muscles from causing moderate to severe lines to form on the face. Once this chemical has been blocked, the muscles are effectively unable to move.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neuro-toxin treatment that must be directly injected with a needle into:
- muscles to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines)
- the area around the side of the eyes to improve the look of moderate to severe crow’s feet lines
BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to treat:
- the areas around the eyes to lessen the appearance of "crow's feet"
- the area around the mouth (perioral muscles) to lessen "smile lines"
- the forehead muscles to stop horizontal creases from appearing when the eyebrows are raised
- the area between the eyes to eliminate the "elevens" (vertical lines when eyebrows are furrowed)
After Your Treatment
You will notice that directly after the injections, the treated areas may be tender and slightly red. These are normal reactions that the body has to both the BOTOX® solution as well as from the needle.
More serious side effects are extremely rare but can include allergic reactions, skin rashes, dizziness or trouble breathing. We will provide you with that information prior to your treatment.
Because the body gradually removes the neuro-toxin from the muscle tissues over time returning complete movement to the treated muscles BOTOX® Cosmetic is designed to be re-injected about every 3 to 4 months. Once you begin treatment our office automatically reminds you when it is time or your next treatment.
What Is The Cost?
BOTOX® costs are based upon a per unit fee. Depending upon the size of the area to be treated, a half dozen or more units may be used per area. When multiple facial areas are treated, the price increases appropriately.
Though the prices of BOTOX® can go up or down based upon supply/demand and competition between providers, we offer competitive prices as well as seasonal specials running throughout the year so that our injectables patients receive the best treatments at the most affordable prices.
We are glad to work with our patients to reach an affordable treatment cost, especially when they commit to a long term treatment plan for 12 months or longer.
