What is Botox?
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world. It is FDA –approved and is an effective treatment for wrinkles and lines related to expression such as lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, and “crow’s feet” around the eyes. Some individuals benefit from treatment around the mouth for “whistler’s lines.”
Botox works by inhibiting the nerve signals sent to muscles. An extensive knowledge of facial anatomy is required for optimum results. Botox injections are best performed by trained specialists such as dermatologists, ophthalmologists, plastic surgeons or ENT surgeons. At Stone Oak Dermatology, Dr. Banta personally performs all injections.
Botox is a well-tolerated procedure. Needles are so small that discomfort is minimal. A topical anesthetic may be applied. Effects last 4 to 6 months. Treatment costs depend on the areas treated. At Stone Oak Dermatology, we only use authentic Botox – ordered directly from ALLERGAN, the manufacturer – to assure safety.
Consultations for Botox treatment are complimentary and may be performed on the same day.
