What is Botox?

Botox is a prescription injection similar to Juvederm or Radiesse. It moderates severe frown lines between the eyebrows and in other locations. It is a “purified protein” that blocks nerve impulses to the muscles in your forehead. Although Botox has unjustly garnered a negative reputation in the media, it remains the top prescribed dermal filler because of its high satisfaction rate.

What are Botox treatments like?

Botox treatments, like Radiesse and Juvederm treatments, are relatively quick and painless. They involved several tiny injections in the forehead region with a small needle. It is over almost as soon as it begins.

What results can you expect from Botox?

The procedure takes very little time, and the recovery period is nonexistent. Treatment will begin to work within 24 to 48 hours and patients will likely see significant improvements in their frown lines by day 7. Results have been known to last as much as 4 months.
