Each smile, frown or any facial expression contributes to your facial lines and wrinkles. Deeper lines or furrows are formed by muscle activity on your face. These lines usually start out as dynamic lines and are strengthened as static lines over time making the furrows permanent. Once the muscles are relaxed, lines gradually smooth and new lines are prevented from forming.
Botox is an injection that temporarily relaxes facial muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as prevent new lines from forming. Botox delivers dramatic results in eliminating wrinkles in the forehead, nose and eyes, and can also be used reduce or remove gummy smiles by lowering the upper lip, treat the mouth area from pulling down and reduce or remove neck wrinkles, or neck bands.

How It Works
- Botox is derived from a purified protein, which blocks the message of the nerve impulse to the muscle that tells it to contract. Repeated muscular contractions such as frowning and squinting produce lines and wrinkles over time. Botox injections allow the treated muscle to relax giving you a smooth, natural and more youthful appearance.
The Treatment Process
- Treatment consists of precise and quick injections into treated muscles that create wrinkles and delivers dramatic results with no downtime. Botox can be used to treat frown lines, crows feet, depressed eyebrows, corners of mouth and peri-oral lip lines.
