What Does Botulinum Toxin Do?
Facial wrinkles occur either due to action of facial muscles on the skin or from a combination of other factors (sun exposure, genetics, smoking, etc.). Botulinum Toxin treatments utilize either Botox ® or Dysport™ products to temporarily weaken or paralyze various muscles of the face to minimize or reverse wrinkle formation.
By doing so, the overlying skin is able to relax, which decreases the depth of existing wrinkles or prevents future wrinkle formation. Botulinum toxin treatment is well-tolerated in the office with few to no side effects experienced by most patients.
Botulinum toxin treatments are offered by many “health care providers.” We offer only treatments administered by a Board-Certified physician with specific fellowship training in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. We feel this level of expertise sets our practice apart and helps us deliver results that you will appreciate beginning with your initial consultation.
