What is it used for?

Botulinum toxin injections (aka botox) are most commonly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in the face. It is also used to treat hyperhidrosis, chin dimples, neckbands, migraines and neck spasms. Botox®  blocks chemical signals from nerves that cause muscle contractions, which is why wrinkles seem to “disappear”. It has been clinically trialed and studied, proven to be safe and effective.

The most common places for injections include:

  • Frown lines
  • Crows feet
  • Furrowing in forehead

What is the procedure like?

Prior to the procedure, our Master Certified Injectors at Allied Medical Aesthetics will perform a facial assessment and determine a treatment plan aligned with your goals. You will be numbed in the injection site prior to the procedure in order to minimize discomfort (although the procedure is typically very tolerable).  Based on your muscle mass and strength of muscle, the dose of the treatment will be determined. A quick,easy,  no-downtime procedure will leave you with a more youthful-looking appearance.  You may begin to notice results within as little as 24 to 48 hours, results last up to 3 - 4 months.
