Botox

Botulinum toxin is a natural, purified protein injected into muscles to lessen facial lines associated with expression. Each client’s injection is individualized to attain the individual’s goals and to make age a more graceful process.

While there is no real downtime associated with this treatment, it is important to note that you may encounter some minor bruising. There are no long term side effects to having Botox injections. *Prices Vary.

Fillers

As we age, the natural collagen and elastin in the skin lessen, and facial volume is lost. Dermal fillers help restore volume loss to achieve a more youthful yet natural appearance. The discomfort is minimal and aesthetic outcomes are seen immediately. *Prices Vary.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • What Is Botox Cosmetic?

    BOTOX® Cosmetic is the #1 selling treatment of its kind*:

    • It’s the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines look better in adults
    • It delivers predictable, subtle results, so you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines
  • How Does Botox Cosmetic Work?

    BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Doctor Facer will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines.
  • When Will I See Results With Botox Injections?

    Effects are typically seen within 3-7 days, but can take up to two weeks to see the full effect.

    Botox is a liquid that is injected with a tiny needle into the muscles of facial expression to minimize these lines and lessen the visual effects of aging. Areas that can be treated include the vertical lines between the brows, horizontal lines in the forehead, crows feet, bunny lines on the nose, the upper and lower lips, and the muscles that create marionette lines to lessen the downward pull at the corners of the mouth.
