What Is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable treatment, like Xeomin or JUVÉDERM®, designed to make your skin look younger and smoother. It is made of a safe protein called "botulinum toxin".
The treatment is administered in small amounts using a needle that is directly injected into the muscle, near a spot with wrinkles or fine lines.
It temporarily softens your muscles. This can relax or lift your skin, allowing wrinkles it to become smoother and tighter.
In two to five days, you may already see results.

The Benefits of BOTOX Treatment
In general, injectable treatments are a much more cost-effective procedure than more extensive treatment, like cosmetic surgery. Thanks to BOTOX, you can find beautiful results at a more affordable price.
Less Invasive Treatment
For a less involved but still noticeable difference, patients may prefer to have BOTOX treatment. The injections are over quickly and easily. It typically takes some quick pinches at the injection site for Dr. Mesna or your aesthetician to apply the botulinum toxin, and then you are done.
More Adjustable Application
BOTOX is temporary, which means that it can be stopped or adjusted. We can decrease or increase your degree of treatment, so that you can find the results that work for you. This option is not possible for cosmetic surgery.
Less Healing Time
With BOTOX, you will have little to no downtime before the injection site is fully healed. Cosmetic surgery in the same area, like face lifts or a blepharoplasty, can take weeks or months to heal, while your injection site will need little to no downtime.

A Firsthand Look At Our BOTOX Approach
Three Common BOTOX Questions: Answered
Is BOTOX Safe?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a diluted solution that is derived from a neuromuscular toxin, which is why it is so effective.
The material has been proven safe and effective and is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the reduction in wrinkles, as well as to treat several other medical conditions.
Virtually anyone who would like to address wrinkles could be a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, but be sure to tell Dr. Mesna about any allergies or medications you are taking to avoid any unwanted interactions.
Does BOTOX Have Any Side Effects?
For some patients, botulinum toxin may have slight side effects, like an arched eyebrow, bruising, or eyelid drooping.
If you notice signs of eyelid drooping or other side effects, reach out to our office.
Generally, they are not dangerous, but it is possible for there to be an accidental injection into a blood vessel.
In the very rare case that you need immediate help, you should call 911.
Can BOTOX Improve Some Medical Conditions?
Dr. Mesna and his team may be able to inject botulinum toxin and improve your specific medical condition.
Patients with certain conditions, like TMJ problems, excessive sweating, and migraines, can benefit from from botulinum toxin application.
For instance, those with TMJ issues typically grind their teeth, causing pain and tooth damage. BOTOX relaxes those muscles, preventing the problem.
