About Botox

How does Botox work?

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

What areas can be treated?

Botox is mainly treated on areas that have wrinkles due to repeated muscle contractions from facial movements. Common Botox treatment areas are worry lines on your forehead, lines between the eyebrows, crow’s and jawlines. Botox also helps to treat excessive sweat on areas such as your underarms and palms.

What will happen after the treatment?

Although most patients report few if any side effects, the most common is slight redness that disappears within a few hours after the treatment. The Botox treatment only takes about 15 minutes and you can continue with your daily routine such as exercise and wearing makeup immediately after treatment.
