By relaxing the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles when frowning or squinting, Botox can help prevent new wrinkles from forming in addition to softening those that already exist.

With nearly immediately noticeable results, no surgery and minimal recovery time, Botox can return the face to a more youthful look quickly and safely. Dr. Peterson injects Botox directly into the muscles in a simple procedure, and after a few hours, you'll be able to resume normal activity. The whole procedure will take less than half an hour, so it's a great option for those who do not want to commit to the recovery period required for surgery, or who do not yet need surgical correction.

The results of the injection will begin to appear within three to four days, and the effect will last up to four months. After that, treated muscles will being to regain movement, but a quick repeat treatment makes sustaining the look you want simple.

Though side effects are possible, Botox injections have proven to be a safe option for those looking to slow the signs of aging. Dr. Peterson will discuss the risks and possible side effects with you before you receive your first treatment.
