Botox

Botox is a safe and effective treatment for the temporary reduction of moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles, as well as facial asymmetries, muscle contraction and migraine headaches. A natural purified protein, FDA-approved Botox Cosmetic is the most common medical cosmetic treatment, with more than four million treatments performed per year. It is often used to treat dynamic wrinkles. Botox is often used in conjunction with injectable fillers which treat the static wrinkles Botox alone can not alleviate in more severe cases.

Dr. Q uses Botox to lift the brows, soften or eliminate lines on the forehead, "crow's feet", frown lines, lines under the eyes, and reduce the appearance of gummy smiles. Botox treatments are one of the fastest non-surgical ways that you can look years younger.

How Botox cosmetic works

When you frown, smile or make any other facial expression, your muscles contract under the skin. This constant muscle movement draws the skin together and causes it to lose elasticity. The results can be frown lines, wrinkles and "crow's feet". When injected carefully and precisely into specific muscles, Botox blocks nerve impulses from activating the muscles, so the skin above appears more relaxed and smoother. In some cases, with repeated treatments, the wrinkle can actually disappear.

What to expect from Botox

Botox treatments are quick and virtually painless. Dr. Q has a very unique approach utilizing a gel ice pack and a gentle hand to ensure your comfort during the procedure. The entire procedure takes about 10-15 minutes and requires no recovery time. Botox has very few side effects and allows you to resume normal activities immediately. Although results may vary, most people see an improvement in three to five days. Effects usually last three to six months.
