Since 2002, over 10 million vials of BOTOX® have been sold around the United States. Like getting a manicure, or enjoying a massage, people everywhere have already made BOTOX® a part of what they do for themselves.
As a non-surgical option for erasing frown lines and crow’s feet, both men and women can rediscover the flawless complexions of their younger days without the need for surgery. Another benefit experienced by patients is a visible lifting of the brow line, helping your face look less tired and adding to a more youthful complexion.
BOTOX® is FDA approved for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet. It is also one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and has a long record of reliability.
Derived from a number of natural sources, BOTOX® is the brand name coined by the Allergan Pharmaceutical Company. Now the name BOTOX® is commonly used as an overall term when describing similar products from other companies.
The primary cause of issues like crow’s feet and frown lines are the repeated muscle contractions from squinting and yes, you guessed it, frowning. As these contractions continue over the years, the effects will start to be displayed and then increase.
BOTOX® injections target the specific facial expression muscles within these problem areas. It then chemically blocks the impulses to the muscle from the nerve, resulting in the relaxation of the muscle and preventing it from contracting. In short, when injected into the area, the formula will temporarily reduce muscle activity.
After the session, the skin is smoother and lines are softer, while at the same time, any untreated muscles continue to contract in a normal fashion. This method allows your facial expression as well as your sensation to be genuinely unchanged. As time progresses, you will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet and frown lines.

After your initial consultation, the procedure itself should take about 10 minutes or less. The recovery time is essentially non-existent, so you should be able to resume your regular activities immediately upon leaving our facility.
Initial relaxing of the musculature may begin in as little as 24 to 48 hours and the full effect should be complete after 2 weeks. This is why we wait 14 days before any “touch-up” treatment will be performed.
Although the results can last up to four months, when receiving BOTOX® treatments at Laser Skin & Wellness, we recommend that our patients schedule their first three appointments at twelve weeks apart. After that, the following treatments can be scheduled at sixteen weeks. By using this schedule, we can perform follow up treatments before the muscles have the chance to regain full movement, aiding in the prevention of additional wrinkles and potentially needing less product to maintain optimal results.
We offer both products because they provide our patients with similar lasting results and some patients prefer one over the other. Some patients might try the other product based on special pricing or a friends recommendation. We feel confident that you will be happy with the results we provide with either product.
