Botox is a medication that is injected into muscles and causes a decrease in the ability of a muscle to contract, resulting in muscle relaxation. Botox has both therapeutic and cosmetic uses. Botox can be used to decrease and prevent grinding and clenching of teeth (bruxism) and headaches. Botox can also be used to eliminate, minimize, and prevent wrinkles around the eyes, on the forehead, and between the eye brows. A few other of its many uses include reducing/eliminating gummy smiles, downturned corners of the mouth, and dimpled chins.

After treatment, bleeding and bruising is minimal, and no down time is required. You will usually start to notice the effects of Botox 3-4 days after treatment and be able to appreciate full effects after two weeks. Botox generally lasts 3-4 months.

Great place and great staff.

Great place and great staff. I was well informed about the entire procedure and the follow up process. I also felt very at ease knowing the doctor called me later in the day and him providing me his number in case anything happens.
