How It Works
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It's not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Repeated muscles contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. Botox® works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines in adults - to help them look visibly smoother.

Number of Treatments Needed
On average, Botox® lasts three to four months. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines will gradually return.
Common Treatment Areas
Radial Lip Lines
Botox® really can benefit anyone - men, women, young and mature. While Botox® certainly helps with signs of aging in more mature clients, younger patients are using it successfully as a means of wrinkle prevention.
To get the best results from your Botox® treatment be sure to schedule your appointment at least two weeks prior to any special event, such as a wedding or vacation.
What To Expect
The procedure will take 10 to15 minutes with no downtime. People often come during their lunch break and can return to work.
Minimal bruising can occur at the injection sites which is only temporary and can be covered with makeup.
It can take up to 12 days to see maximum results.
What To Avoid
The first and foremost rule is this — no touching!
You may want to massage or rub the injection area, but this is to be avoided for at least four hours after treatment to prevent any unwanted results.
Avoid physical activity for 24 hours after treatment.
Avoid pain killers and alcohol for 24 hours after treatment due to the increased risk of bruising and swelling.
No saunas, tanning beds or excessive heat for 24 hours after treatment.
