Are you putting your best face forward?
Lines and wrinkles on the face can make you look older, tired, or even angry, despite how you feel on the inside. The good news is that you don’t have to settle for wrinkled skin. Botox will smooth out the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles on the face, giving you a more relaxed and youthful appearance.
What are dynamic wrinkles?
Habitual facial movements such as frowning, smiling, laughing, and squinting can cause dynamic wrinkles. When we are younger, our skin has the elasticity to bounce back after these movements. Over time, these lines and wrinkles will become more prominent and can make a person look older.

Why you should consider Botox
Botox has been used medically for many decades, but has become extremely popular for cosmetic use as a way to temporarily relax and smooth out wrinkles. Botox is affordable and can be used on one or more of the following issues:
- Frown lines – the wrinkles between the brows that can make you look angry or tired
- Crow’s feet – the wrinkles around the outside of the eyes
- Forehead lines – horizontal lines that run across the forehead, making you look older
How Botox reduces the appearance of wrinkles
An injection of Botox blocks the nerve signals, relaxing the muscle so the wrinkle disappears.
Your Botox Treatment
During a consultation, we will work with you to come up with the best options to address your facial rejuvenation concerns. Once you have determined Botox is right for you, we can determine the most appropriate areas to have the solution applied. Most people receive Botox injections on the upper half of the face, usually around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead.
Botox treatments generally only take about 15 or 20 minutes. Prior to the injections we will clean your face and apply a local anesthetic. We then use the precise amount of Botox for beautiful results that are natural-looking. There is no downtime with Botox, which makes it a great lunch time procedure.
Results from Botox usually appear within one to two weeks of treatment. Side effects may include swelling, redness, or mild bruising at the injection sites. These can often easily be disguised with make-up.
Botox can last approximately three to four months for most patients. After that, maintenance sessions will need to be scheduled to maintain results long term. Many patients combine Botox injections with dermal fillers for a complete facial rejuvenation. During your consultation we can discuss dermal fillers to determine if they are right for you.
