Since FDA approval in 2002, Botox® has been the number one physician administered procedure in the U.S., primarily used for treatment of dynamic lines and wrinkles of the skin. The safety of Botox injections has been well established after millions of procedures performed around the world, in over 100 countries, with no serious consequences.
Results of Botox
Before & After Botox Treatment (Use Slider to Compare)
When will I see results from BOTOX®?
It’s typical to see initial results in 24 to 48 hours, but the full effect often appears two weeks after treatment and lasts up to four months.
Can I get BOTOX® on my lunch break?
In most cases, yes! The actual administration of BOTOX® typically won’t take more than a few minutes. Minor redness or swelling typically subsides in 10 minutes so it won’t be obvious that you’ve received treatment. In rare cases bruising can be possible, but administration of BOTOX® by an experienced Board Certified physician makes this substantially less likely.
Does receiving BOTOX® treatment hurt?
Generally no. Most people report feeling nothing more than a pinch at worst. If you have special concerns or questions about discomfort please let the physician know during your free consultation.
How many units of BOTOX® do I need?
It depends. The amount of BOTOX® required can vary depending on the area, intensity of wrinkles, and your goals. The physician will evaluate your needs during your free consultation.

How Botox Works
Botox works just beneath the skin by targeting the underlying muscles responsible for wrinkles and other unwanted lines. This is done by decreasing the activity of those muscles, thereby creating a more natural looking, youthful face that is still capable of normal expression.
