What is Botox?Botox is an injectable medication used for the temporary relaxation of hyper-functional muscles. It has been proven effective for both medical and cosmetic applications, with an exemplary record of safety. The procedure is fast and comfortable with no downtime.
What Botox doesBotox is classified as a neurotoxin. It does not directly affect the functionality of a muscle. Instead, it inhibits the transmission of nerve signals instructing the muscle to contract. This is a localized treatment, meaning that it should not affect muscles other than those treated. It does not numb the area; all feeling is normal, but the muscle activity is decreased.
Results develop over a couple of weeks following treatment, and last for several months. We can maintain the results indefinitely with simple maintenance sessions.
Cosmetic usagesLost volume and decreased skin elasticity are often blamed on wrinkles. However, due to gravity, the wrinkles caused by loose, sagging skin typically appear on the lower part of the face. Those around the eyes and on the forehead are caused by facial muscles, which have become rigid from years of repetitive movement.
Frown lines, crow’s feet, and other lines or wrinkles on the upper portion of the face can be relaxed away with the Botox Cosmetic! The product will be administered by a skilled, trained provider. The secret to natural, beautiful results is choosing the optimal amount of the product, and the precise location for the injections. When you visit our practice, you will not have a “frozen” face; you will look beautifully refreshed, relaxed, and more youthful!
Hyperhidrosis usageBotox can bring relief to individuals who experience severe excess sweating, known as hyperhidrosis. For this purpose, a small amount is injected into the skin. This treatment is appropriate for individuals over the age of 18.
Other neurotoxins comparable to BotoxXeomin and Myobloc are different brands of neurotoxins. The usage, procedure, and results are very similar to those of Botox brand injectables. Some people respond better to a specific product, or have a personal preference. We offer a variety of options to deliver the best treatment for each individual. However, they are all excellent, safe, effective products.

Dear Dr. Weaver,
I came to this clinic because of my friend’s excitement about her experiences here. I have noticed dramatic changes in her. She told me she had microdermabrasion so….that is what I wanted. I had no intention of getting Botox. But after consultations I decided to go for it and the end result is absolute excitement! I had no intention of getting that treatment but now I could be the poster girl for Botox! I Love It!! People started noticing that I looked younger in 2 days! I feel sinful for the number of times I want to check myself out in the mirror.
I told my friend that I had received Botox and it turned out that she did too….she just didn’t tell me. We are both very happy with the results and also the warm, caring staff that make the experience complete.
