BOTOX® Treatment Results

How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?

Very low doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles responsible for the frown lines. By blocking the release of the chemical that causes the muscle to contract, BOTOX® Cosmetic enables them to relax, so the skin tightens and appears smoother.

One 15-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—and within days there’s a noticeable improvement in those persistent lines between the brows. Results can last up to 4 months. There’s no recovery or downtime. Many patients receive BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments during their lunch break!

BOTOX® Treatments for Hyperhydrosis
BOTOX® is also FDA-approved for Hyperhydrosis (severe underarm sweating) that is inadequately managed with topical agents. BOTOX® helps control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.

“I had been hesitant about going to someone new for Botox and other treatments but having moved to the area recently, decided I should find a place closer to home. I am very happy with that decision! I had read the glowing reviews about Nicole and Jennifer and thought I should write about my experience with Lisa and Ruth. I received botox from Lisa and she really took her time to listen to me and what I wanted as well as giving her suggestions. I was thrilled with the very natural looking and beautiful results. I was going to return to see Lisa again for fillers but she was booked up and I wanted to get in that week. I took an appointment with Ruth who also was wonderful. She knew exactly what I wanted and had some great recommendations which I was happy to receive. The results again were beautiful and natural looking. I was really anxious before going the LCM. The treatments are costly and I was worried that I would end up spending my money for a plastic/frozen look. I am beyond pleased and I would not hesitate to go back or to recommend to my friends. Very glad to have found such a great place so close to home. Also, as everyone has said before, the staff are very welcoming and helpful.”
