What is Botox?

A simple nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment, Botox temporarily smooths moderate to severe frown lines between the eye brows, around the eyes and on the forehead in people from 18 to 65 years of age. One 15-minute treatment, a few minor injections, and within days there’s a noticeable improvement across moderate to severe cases, all of which can last up to 4 months, though results may vary.

Our doctors can determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles in your brow area. The location, size, and use of the muscles that create a furrowed brow vary markedly among individuals. Improvement may continue for as long as a month, lasting up to 4 months. We ask that patients wait at least 7 days after the injection to see the full effect.
