What are BOTOX® Injections?
Botox ® is an injectable treatment to relax facial muscles and soften lines and wrinkles. Our doctors treat the dynamic wrinkle lines surrounding the eye and forehead region. The injection is performed without anesthesia and effects are discernable within a week.
Botox is cosmetically used for:
- Crow’s feet at eyelid corners
- Frown lines in between eyebrows
- Forehead wrinkles
Botox is medically used for:
- Hemifacial spasm (facial twitch)
- Blepharaospasm (abnormal contraction or twitch of eyelid)
The effects from injection is only temporary, so repeat sessions may be needed. Typically patients need to return every 3-4 months.
Two of our doctors offer Botox ® injections: Dr. Brad Kwapiszeski and Dr. Caroline Chang.
