B-Tox

If fine lines and wrinkles are your concern, we offer B-tox which has been FDA approved for cosmetic use since 2002. B-tox Cosmetic is one of the most effective, widely used, and successful treatments for temporarily softening unwanted wrinkles of the forehead, crow’s feet, between the eyebrows, and fine lines surrounding the mouth. We also offer B-tox Cosmetic treatments for excessive sweating called Hyperhidrosis, of which the results typically lasts for 8 – 12 months.

B-tox Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form due to facial expressions.

This depends on how much is injected. The number of units you’ll need will depend on how active your muscles are, although clinical minimal units per area are in use.

The pain has been described as similar to that of an ant bite, lasting for a few seconds.

The effects of B-tox facial injections typically last 3 to 4 months, but can last longer with ongoing treatment.

Possible side effects of B-tox are usually temporary and restricted to the area of injection. They include heavy eyelids, bruising, headache, redness, swelling at the injection site, bruising, skin tightness, muscle weakness – all of which are resolved as soon as the B-tox wares of.

No, your muscles will slowly start contracting again and lines will form over time as they would have before.

Is treatment with B-tox Cosmetic painful?

Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injection, we offer to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 15-20 minutes.

Most patients are in and out of the office without downtime. Possible side effects associated with the injection include localized pain, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, temporary redness, and/or bleeding/bruising.

How does B-tox Cosmetic work?

B-tox Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes the persistent lines and wrinkles to form in treated areas. Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals.

Facial wrinkles and lines result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles cause your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest.

So start with B-tox treatments as soon as you see a wrinkle that stays visible even on a relaxed face.

Dermal Fillers are used when a dramatic and instant change is required.

Filler is a bio-compatible and FDA-approved gel of smooth consistency made of hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring acid in your body) that adds hydration, lift, and volume to facial areas treating moderate to severe facial creases, a perfect choice to plump and hydrate lips and restores volume in aging hands, neck ,cheeks and temple areas.

Hyaluronic provides rejuvenation and a refreshed, younger appearance. Since hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, allergy testing is not required. Most dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic agent like Lidocaine to alleviate discomfort.
