Botox® is a simple and safe procedure that can be performed during a routine visit, with no downtime and little to no discomfort. Botox® works by temporarily reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause persistent frown lines, forehead wrinkles, or smile lines around the eyes. If treatments are not continued, the muscles will gradually return to normal function and wrinkles will return. Botox can also be used to treat excessive sweating and jaw pain. Our goal with Botox® is to give our patients a “softer and relaxed look”, not eliminate movement.
