Our aesthetic physician, Dr. Amanda Maloney, will discuss your personal concerns and let you know if you will benefit from a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment. She will then prescribe your treatment plan and let you know the total cost. The treatment itself takes just minutes.
Dr. Maloney is a very experienced aesthetic injector and will assure you are comfortable throughout your entire appointment.
In general, BOTOX® Cosmetic is most often injected into frown lines and forehead, as well as around the eyes to minimize the signs of aging. Experienced physicians also treat fine lines on the upper lip, marionette lines at the corners of the mouth, exaggerated jaw muscles and neck bands, and rippling of the chin.
BOTOX® Cosmetic take 2-7 days to take effect and will continue to improve for up to a month.
As with any type of injection, there is always a risk of small bruises where you are injected, though Dr. Maloney will do her best to avoid this.
The benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic last approximately four months, and sometimes longer. If you choose to discontinue receiving treatment, lines and wrinkles gradually become more apparent just as before you started your BOTOX® treatments.
