Prevent new lines and wrinkles with our Botox injections
What is Botox?
BOTOX is a protein derived from botulinum toxin that is injected underneath skin in order to minimize or smooth out lines and wrinkles on the face. When low doses of BOTOX are used, it selectively weakens or relaxes facial muscles, giving the recipient a clean, smooth facial appearance.
Post Treatment Instructions
Remain upright for 4 hours after injection, keeping your head above your heart.
Exaggerate facial expressions in treated areas for 1 hour after injection.
Tiny bumps and marks at the injection sites usually disappear within a few hours.
With any injection procedure bruising is possible; if it occurs apply ice to area for 20 minutes.
Headaches can occur after BOTOX treatments. If you have a head ache we recommend you avoid aspirin or aspirin-containing products. You may use Motrin, Tylenol, and/or cool compresses. If the headache is unrelenting or continues to get worse, please contact the office.
DO NOT participate in yoga or other rigorous exercise activities for the 1st 24 hours after treatment.

Risks of Cosmetic Injections
Although there are risks, they are rare. Injection site redness, swelling and bruising is possible and temporary if they occur. Eyelid droop, asymmetry, and lack of effect are also rare occurrences. One can have an allergic reaction to BOTOX. Those taking certain antibiotics are at risk for an adverse reaction. Anyone who is taking an antibiotic is advised to make your provider aware of this before being injected with BOTOX. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are advised to postpone BOTOX injections until their little ones are no longer dependent upon them for nutrition.
