Botox® Injections

Feel More Confident in Your Skin

One major cause of facial wrinkles is repeated muscle contractions. Movements like squinting, smiling, frowning and laughing can cause facial lines over time. Botox® is a nationally trusted, FDA-approved treatment that temporarily controls muscle movement to help smooth and reduce these wrinkles – and help prevent them from forming altogether.

Common Areas Treated with Botox®

Crow’s Feet: Also known as laugh lines, these wrinkles are caused by the orbicularis oculi muscle that surrounds the eye. This muscle contracts when you smile, squint and open your eyes widely.

Forehead Lines: These facial lines are caused by the contraction of the frontalis muscle. You use this muscle when you move your eyebrows and wrinkle your forehead.

Frown Lines: These lines are caused by two muscles: the corrugator and procerus muscles. You use these muscles when you smile, open and close your mouth, and pucker your lips.
