Reconstructive Procedures


BOTOX® is a prescription drug that upon injection into the problem area, can temporarily paralyze muscles. It contains a purified and safe form of botulinum toxin A, or Clostridium Botulinum. Large amounts of this toxin can cause botulism, however the small diluted amounts found in BOTOX can be used to our advantage. The BOTOX blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. This prevents the muscles from contracting and allows wrinkles to relax and soften.

BOTOX is the first and only FDA-approved temporary treatment of lines and wrinkles in the forehead and eye area. When injected, BOTOX works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. The results are diminished forehead furrows, frown lines, and crow’s feet.
