What Is Botox®?
Botox® is designed to block nerve impulses to the facial muscles responsible for producing expressions and wrinkles. The product reduces the muscle activity and temporarily prevents contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines, crow’s feet, or forehead wrinkles. Injections around the mouth are usually not performed, as they weaken the smile and lip movements.

What Areas Can Botox® Treat?
Areas that can be treated with Botox® include:

- Crow’s feet
- Forehead wrinkles (horizontal wrinkles)
How Is Botox® Performed?
The number of injections needed and the amount of product used depend on the severity of the wrinkles and the size of the treatment area. Treatment typically takes 30 minutes. Patients can return to work and their normal routine almost immediately without any downtime.
What Results Can I Expect from Botox®?
Results are temporary and generally last three to four months, at which point the body dissolves and absorbs the product. Regular treatments to maintain the results are recommended.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox®?
Botox® can be used on younger and older skin. You may not be a good candidate if you have sagging, deep wrinkles and other signs of advanced aging.
Can Botox® Be Combined with Other Procedures?
Botox® can be combined with additional cosmetic treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing or dermal fillers, for maximum anti-aging effects. Dr. Mozaffari and his team can recommend complementary treatments based on the specific needs of the individual patient. Some wrinkles can be reduced permanently by surgery, such as a brow lift for frown lines.
