BOTOX ® (Botulinum toxin) is one of the most important substances to hit the field of facial rejuvenation. This substance is the most popular way to reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines to create natural-looking, long-lasting results without surgery or downtime.

What is BOTOX ®?
We offer use one Botulinum toxin brand called BOTOX ®, made by Allergan. It is clinically-tested and has a high standard of patient safety. When directly injected into the muscles of treated areas with an ultrafine needle, BOTOX ® prevents nerve signals from reaching the muscles, causing temporary relaxation and restoring tight smooth skin.
An easy treatment to fit into any schedule, BOTOX ® generally causes minimal discomfort as the needle is being inserted. Our medical provider will evaluate your facial features prior to treatment and create results that subtly enhance your profile while maintaining your natural facial expressions.
What Does BOTOX ® Treat?
It can be used to treat multiple signs of aging, including:
- Moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
BOTOX ® for Excessive Sweating
In addition to relaxing fine lines and wrinkles, we also utilize BOTOX ® to help treat hyperhidrosis or excessive underarm sweating. When antiperspirants and deodorants are not enough to curb your underarm sweating, BOTOX ® for hyperhidrosis may be an effective solution. In the same way, that the botulinum toxin blocks nerve signals in facial muscles, it can also block chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. When these chemical signals are not received, the amount of sweat that is produced is significantly less. Only a medical professional can determine if you are experiencing hyperhidrosis – contact us today to have your condition evaluated by Mr. Garberich.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Patients may experience slight bruising, redness, swelling or itching after neurotoxin treatment, which should subside within a day or two. All possible risks and side effects will be discussed with you by Mr. Garberich during your consultation.
How long does BOTOX last?
Results vary by patient, but typically results last from three to four months. Although wrinkles and fine lines can recur after BOTOX ® wears off, regular treatment can effectively manage these visible signs of aging.
Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX ®?
During your consultation with Mr. Garberich, we’ll discuss factors such your overall health, medical history, and cosmetic goals to determine if BOTOX® is right for you. Certain allergies and contraindicating medical conditions may require further evaluation before treatment is approved. Mr. Garberich will help you determine which course of treatment will best suit your individual needs.
Do you offer any payment plans?
We offer a financing solution through Care Credit. We will be happy to review the requirements and help you with the application process either over the phone or during your consultation. You can also apply online or call Care Credit at your own convenience.
