Time marches on. Of that there is no doubt. And it can take its toll on our looks and how we feel about ourselves.
Are you concerned about your facial features and how aging has affected your skin as well as your underlying muscles? Are you willing to take matters into your own hands, so to speak, to make some remarkable changes? Are you interested in real, noticeable results, with no surgery and no recovery time?
If you could find a way to achieve an authentic-looking appearance that doesn't overdo or alter your natural look would you be inspired to make some changes?
We are at your service. No matter your aesthetic goals for a more youthful appearance, we can design a complete treatment plan that will address 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 will be most effective while working within your budget.
Our aesthetic centers perform dozens of procedures each week. Our injectables are designed to offer our patients a non-invasive, non-surgical method of improving the appearance of facial wrinkles, lines and creases due to aging and sun damage.
Botulinum toxin (BOTOX® Cosmetic) injections are an excellent way to isolate specific muscles of the face that are causing laugh lines, frown lines and other telltale signs of aging that patients are looking to temporarily erase. The cosmetic effects of BOTOX® are seen right away as wrinkles on the face no longer appear when you smile or frown.
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.
We often use BOTOX® and dermal fillers together for best results to achieve a more youthful look. Our on-site facial filler & injectable expert, James Christian Sardelli, a Registered Physician Assistant - Certified (RPA-C), can help you decide which combination of non-surgical treatments is right for you. He is highly skilled in Vampire Facelift®, MesoGlow, dermal fillers, lip plumping, wrinkle treatments, Dermapen® microneedling, and liquid facelift.

Introduced in 2002, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first botulinum toxin to be approved by the FDA to temporarily treat moderate to severe glabellar lines (“elevens”) 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.
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
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.
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.
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)
Patients will notice that directly after the injections, the treated areas may be swollen, 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 for your next treatment.
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.
