What is botox? How does it work?

BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is part of a group of drugs known as biologics—biologic medBOTOX-before-and-after-photosicines are made from living things. BOTOX® is a purified protein that is made from a type of bacteria called Clostridium botulinum type A.

BOTOX® targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your provider will inject these muscles with BOTOX® to temporarily reduce muscle activity.


BOTOX® targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your provider will inject these muscles with BOTOX® to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.


For the crow’s feet area, your provider will inject 3 areas of the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the orbicularis oculi muscle on the other eye.

Injecting BOTOX® into the muscles that cause crow’s feet lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.


For the frown lines area, your provider will administer 5 injections into muscles in your forehead, depending on the severity of the wrinkles and the patients concerns.

If you never thought exfoliating was important, we are about to change your mind FOREVER!

As we get older, skin-cell turnover slows down and exofoliating can help speed up the normal sheding cycle. Exfoliating can rid the skin’s dull, outer layer as well as all of the flaws that reside there, like fine lines, pigmentation and acne.
Follow this link to find four major reasons why exfoliating is so important!
At our office we have endless products and services, which help our patients achieve a faster skin-cell turnover creating healthy, flawless skin including:
1. Microdermabrasion Treatments – A non-surgical, non-invasive process where micro-crystals are propelled at a high speed to safely abrade the skin’s tissue, at the same time the debris and crystals are vacuumed away leaving the skin softer and brighter.
2. Nouvelle – Retinol 0.6% is delivered through a time released unique µ-Bead technology. Providing a sustained dose of Retinol for optimal efficacy with low to tolerable irritation for skin firmness and smoothness. Nouvelle also helps by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and signs of photo-aging.
3. Glytone Acne Kit- A daily regimen to help keep skin blemish-free. This kit includes Salicylic Acid which helps unclog pores, Benzoyl peroxide that controls surface oil of the skin and Glycolic Acid which helps refine and retexturize skin.
4. Perle – A skin brightening cream that is formulated with melaplex, a hydroquinone-free alternative to visibly diminishes the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone.

Prior to the first use, charge the Clarisonic handle for 24 hours.

  • Remove eye makeup by hand.
  • Apply cleanser directly to moistened skin or to a damp brush head.
  • Push the on/off button to turn on your cleansing brush.
  • Select desired speed.
  • Follow T-Timer prompts while gently moving the brush head in small circular motions. We recommend:
1 20 seconds
on Forehead
2 20 seconds
on Nose and Chin
3 10 seconds
