Image has become an important aspect of our lives. Whether you want to look fresh and presentable at work in an increasingly competitive job market or are single and want to enhance or maintain looks for dating- we can help. Once you feel great on the inside, we can help you look great on the outside too.
Skincare – we use compounding pharmacists to customize pharmaceutical grade creams for your specific needs, which can help your skin appear younger and healthier.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles. The result is that the underlying facial muscles relax and the skin begins to smooth out. We use a very fine gauge needle to minimize the discomfort you may feel. Immediately following injection, an ice pack will be placed on your face to soothe and minimize the potential for bruising or swelling. About 1 percent of patients experience mild bruising after this treatment. We recommend you refrain from exercise for a few hours and avoid massaging the treated area for 48 hours.
Common areas treated:
- Forehead (surprise lines)
- Just above the eyebrows (frown lines)
- Around the eyes (crow’s feet).
The injections take around 4-5 days to start working and peak at around 14 days. The effect wears off in about 4 months. Routine follow-up injections over time will decrease the prominence of facial wrinkles.
