As you age, your face develops creases and wrinkles. Botox® is a safe and inexpensive, non-surgical way to remove some of the effects of aging and help your face look years younger. Its 20-year track record has given Botox a well-established reputation as an effective alternative to a facelift. Dr. Cha and Dr. Durham administer Botox®.
What Is Botox®?
Botox® is a neuromuscular inhibitor that prevents muscle movement and relaxes the muscles in your face to erase the lines and creases.
How Does Botox Work?
Before treatment, you will have a consultation with Dr. Cha or Dr. Durham to discuss your aesthetic goals. Either doctor will review your medical and prescription histories to ensure you are a candidate for this treatment.
During the Botox procedure, you can expect these steps:
- Cleanse your face
- Numb and mark the injection areas
- Use a thin needle quickly inject a small amount of Botox beneath your skin
- Cleanse your skin
How Long Does Botox Treatment Take and Last?
Botox treatment usually takes less than 15 minutes. Most people see results in three to five days, though it has taken up to two weeks for some. The effects last from three to six months. You can repeat the treatment as necessary.
