That’s why we offer Botox injectable treatments to patients seeking to minimize the visible signs of aging. 

Take a moment to learn how Botox can enhance your beauty and take years off your face. 

Understanding Botox

Research shows that beginning in your late 20s, your skin loses elasticity and tone. This means that as you make repeated facial expressions by contracting your muscles, lines and wrinkles start to form. 

Botox is created from a naturally occurring bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. It blocks the signal that travels from the injected nerve to your muscle, preventing it from contracting as deeply. 

The result? The fine lines and wrinkles soften and fade, enhancing your appearance for up to four months.

Botox results are technique-specific. To ensure your wellness and get optimal results, you should get Botox injections from qualified professionals. With the help of our expert providers at Beth and Howard Braver, MD, you’ll look and feel your best. 

Enhancing your beauty with Botox

There’s a reason Botox remains the most popular cosmetic injectable: It works. Here are just some of the ways Botox can enhance your look.

Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles

We target key areas throughout your face or neck to block the signals between your nerves and muscles. As your muscles relax, you stop making the repetitive motions that caused your fine lines and wrinkles to develop in the first place. 

Reduces acne

If adult acne is making you feel less than beautiful, fast and effective Botox can help. In many cases, acne is caused by a combination of issues that results in the production of too much sebum (a natural oily substance your skin produces). 

Studies have found that Botox reduces pore size and the production of sebum, helping you enjoy clearer skin.    

Tones down the shine

Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, can make your complexion too shiny. Botox is an effective treatment for controlling excessive sweating. 

While most people think of sweat glands under their arms, you can also treat your scalp. By paralyzing the muscles around the sweat glands, you can have a shine-free complexion.      

Smoothes away lip and smile lines

In addition to lines and wrinkles around your eyes, temples, and brows, you may be frustrated by fine lines around your mouth. From tiny wrinkles around your lips to dynamic folds created when you smile, Botox works to smooth them away.

For patients with deeper, more pronounced lines and folds around the mouth and nose, we may recommend additional cosmetic treatments.
