HOW IT WORKS
Botox® is a purified protein used to relax muscles that cause wrinkles and expression lines. It is administered through a series of tiny injections into specific muscles with a fine needle and works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. Injected muscles can no longer contract, causing wrinkles to relax and soften.
Before they treat you, Dr. Muhn or Dr. Rosen will carefully assess your facial anatomy and expressions to determine the optimal dosage and treatment locations. No anaesthetic is required and most patients report very little discomfort. Results begin to appear within days and full effects are visible in one to two weeks. If you’re a new patient, or just new to Botox®, our doctors will see you again at two weeks to assess results and in some cases small adjustments are made.
Effects are temporary and generally last between three and four months, at which point wrinkles gradually re-appear. With repeated treatments lines and wrinkles may become less severe as muscles become conditioned to relaxing. Treatment every four months is recommended to maintain results.
