By relaxing the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles when frowning or squinting, Botox can help prevent new wrinkles from forming, in addition to softening those that already exist.

What to expect

  • Average Time: 30 minutes
  • Anesthesia: No anesthesia required
  • Am I a good candidate? In good health, unhappy with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Recovery: Minimal
  • Risks: Risks will be discussed at your consultation.
  • Inpatient/Outpatient: Outpatient
  • Cost: The cost of the procedure will be discussed at your consultation with Dr. Peterson.

With nearly immediately noticeable results, no surgery, and minimal recovery time, Botox® can return the face to a more youthful look, quickly and safely. Dr. Peterson injects Botox® directly into the muscles in a simple procedure, and after a few hours, you’ll be able to resume normal activity.

The results of the injection will begin to appear within three to four days, and the effect will last up to four months. After that, treated muscles will begin to regain movement, but a quick repeat treatment makes it simple to sustain the look you want.
