What is Botox?
Botox is an injectable medicine that softens wrinkles on the face caused by muscle contractions. The most common treatment areas for Botox are across the forehead, corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) and between the brows. Botox is the #1 selling treatment of its kind worldwide, and is approved for use in 98 countries.
When expertly injected, Botox blocks the nerve signaling process that causes muscles to contract and form wrinkles. Botox will not improve the appearance of static wrinkles caused by gravity or collagen and elastin loss that is commonly associated with the aging process.
Botox can be used to treat wrinkles across the forehead, corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) and between the brows. It can also be used to sharpen the jawline, correct a gummy smile, or provide lift and shape to the eyebrows.
Botox is not just limited to aesthetic improvement of the face, and can also be used to reduce excessive sweating of the underarms, hands and face. Please visit our Botox for Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) page for more information.
Botox treatments are both quick and tolerable. Using a very fine needle, your Injector will target the muscles that are causing the wrinkles you would like to correct. Beyond the slight pinch of the needle, most patients find Botox treatments virtually painless. Botox results kick in around 7 to 10 days post treatment and last around 3 to 4 months.
“I’ve been coming here for about a year and I will say it’s definitely top notch. I’ve gotten Botox and other injectables and it just lasts longer than other places. Their prices are reasonable for the Boston area and they run a good deal of promotions as well. It’s very clean and the staff are always nice and professional.” - Krista Lynn | Google
Botox has an excellent safety profile, and is one of the most widely researched and studied treatments of its kind, with over 16 years of published research and 528 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
There is typically no recovery or downtime associated with Botox treatments, beyond some pinpoint bleeding or slight swelling at the injection sites immediately post treatment. This usually resolves within minutes, and you can return to your day-to-day activities.
