Before and After
FAQQ: What exactly is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
A: BOTOX® is a highly purified protein injected into the skin to relax the muscles that cause some kinds of wrinkles.
Q: What problems will BOTOX® treat?
A: In addition to over 180 medical uses, BOTOX® has many cosmetic uses, including treatment of frown lines, worry lines across the forehead, crow's feet lines, certain lines around the mouth, and excessively sweaty armpits, palms, and feet. In some patients relief from migraine headaches is an added benefit.
Q: Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?
A: The results are dramatic, a treatment with Botox will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes the lines to form is simply reduced, so you can frown, smile, or look surprised without the creases and wrinkles.

A: You should begin to see a significant improvement within a few days. If you refer to the before and after photos you can get a good idea of what you will look like 7 day post treatment.
