When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, your facial muscles contract. Over a period of time, these contractions lead to permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and around the eyes and mouth. These lines can make you look angry, tired, and older. Botox® Cosmetic treatments not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial expressions, but they also help to erase them.
Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription drug that temporarily relaxes specific facial muscles in the areas mentioned above. This ultimately results in a more youthful appearance. Injection site side effects are usually mild and temporary. Botox® is performed by all three of our board-certified dermatologists.
