Look Younger with BOTOX® Cosmetic
Repeated muscle contractions in the face are one of the underlying causes of facial lines. This can lead to moderate-to-severe lines between your eyebrows, on your forehead or around your eyes. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments can smooth your facial lines and help you look younger, more alert and happier. During a BOTOX Cosmetic treatment, small amounts of purified botulinum toxin medication are injected into targeted muscles of the face. The treatment lasts approximately 10 minutes; the injections are often described as a pinching sensation. The medication allows the facial muscles to relax by blocking nerve impulses. As a result, facial lines are softened and your appearance is rejuvenated.
It is important to choose an experienced professional who is trained in BOTOX Cosmetic injections so you achieve a natural-looking appearance. Dr. Joseph Serota is licensed to provide BOTOX Cosmetic injections and has extensive training in protecting the delicate tissues surrounding the eyes.
