Used cosmetically since l987, Botox® is ranked as the most popular physician-administered aesthetic procedure in the United States.

Symptoms it treats

Frown lines between brows, lines on the forehead, crow’s feet.

How it works

Botox® is a neurotoxin that essentially “freezes” muscles, relaxes wrinkles and smoothes out the skin’s surface.


Botox® is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment. Sessions generally take 10 to 30 minutes and include a series of tiny injections to deliver Botox® to the site.

Side effects

Minor bruising may occur. In reality the main side effect of Botox® is paralysis of targeted muscles. Essentially the side effect is the goal of the treatment which lasts approximately 4-6 months.
