What is Botox®?
One of the first signs of aging we begin to see as we get older is the fine lines and wrinkles around our eyes and forehead. While invasive surgical procedures are always able to smooth away these unwanted signs of aging, Botox® is a minimally invasive treatment that can reduce these fine lines and wrinkles without the hassle of cutting, scarring, and general anesthesia. Botox® is an injectable cosmetic treatment that temporarily relaxes the muscles in the treated areas to reduce fine lines and wrinkles from appearing. This treatment is most popularly used to treat crow's feet around the eyes, frown lines between the brows, and the fine lines and deep wrinkles that appear on the forehead with repeated facial expressions.
How Much Does Botox® Cost?
The cost of your Botox® treatment is going to vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results. To get a better idea of how much your Botox® treatment will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our clinical staff. We are also happy to offer financing options through CareCredit® for your convenience.

What Can I Expect During my Botox® Treatment?
Your Botox® treatment will be performed by one of our clinical staff in our state-of-the-art facility. A series of Botox® injections will strategically and carefully be made into the upper third of your face. The entire treatment process typically takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete.
What Results Can I Expect from Botox®?
Because Botox® is a minimally invasive treatment, patients are able to return to their normal daily activities including work immediately following their appointment. Patients report experiencing mild redness, tenderness, swelling, and bruising around their treated areas, however, these side effects typically subside within a few hours of treatment. Because the active ingredients in Botox® take a few days to take effect, it may take up to five days to see your desired results. We typically recommend patients receive Botox® treatments every three to four months to maintain their desired results.
