The Gold Standard for Dynamic Wrinkles
BOTOX® has become a household word, and a routine part of many people's beauty regimens. At About Face Skin Care we have earned Platinum Plus Status with Allergan, the maker of Botox. BOTOX® is a prescription medicine, injected into muscles by a healthcare professional, to reduce “tired-looking’ frown lines between brows. Its popularity among millions of men and women is due to it being a simple, nonsurgical treatment, offering immediate results and no recovery time. By blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles, BOTOX® lessens muscle activity which causes lines to form. Results are temporary, requiring regular treatments.

The ideal placement of BOTOX injections produces a more youthful appearance by softening dynamic wrinkles – those caused by repeated facial expressions. The treatment involves injecting small amounts of the purified toxin into the tiny muscles responsible for the movements that create the lines and wrinkles. This relaxes the muscle, reducing the lines and wrinkles and producing smoother skin in the treated areas.
The most common treatment areas include:
- Vertical lines between the eyes
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow's feet
- Neck bands
About Face Skin-ologists utilize these products for neck rejuvenation, and for the creation of a brow-lift effect. Our highly skilled injectors may use BOTOX in other areas such as around the mouth or jawline.
