BOTOX is an anti-aging skin rejuvenation procedure that treats facial wrinkles without surgery. Manufactured under the name Botulinum Toxin Type A, this agent temporarily relaxes muscles residing under the skin by blocking the nerve impulses. This causes the visible wrinkles to soften, resulting in a smoother, younger appearance. More than 6.1 million BOTOX injections were given in 2012. When done correctly and consistently, BOTOX can eliminate the fine lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows and along the forehead, as well as address crow’s feet and laugh lines.

"I had a very pronounced frown line and decided to see if botox might help it relax and soften it. I was pleasantly surprised that my results were so much better than I expected. Dr. Jonov was very nice and informative. He explained to me about the procedure and answered any questions that I had. Staff is truly friendly and fantastic. I highly recommend them to anyone.

"When I decided at 31 that I was finally ready to get the breast implants that I have always wanted I contacted a friend of mine who had hers done to see who she went to since I was impressed with how hers turned out , she referred me to Dr. Jonov. From my very first consultation appointment. I was sure I had made the right choice. Everyone there was very nice and helpful through the whole process. They gave me tons of information and helped me make the choices from the different types of implants, styles, size, and incisions to ensure that I was extremely happy with the end result. They prepared me and my boyfriend for surgery day so we knew exactly what to expect then and the days to follow and eased my anxiety as surgery can be a very scary thing. I couldn't be happier with the results and they look amazing, but what really impressed me is the number of appointments and care I have received during the last 6 months since my surgery. Dr. Jonov has seen me a nearly a dozen times throughout that time to ensure everything is healing and settling properly and make sure I am happy with the final product. I also decided to try Botox in my eye area to smooth the crows feet and I am thrilled with the difference it has made so I will definitely be continuing to have it done. I know some women who have gotten breast augmentation surgery and were so unhappy with the results so making the right choice in your doctor is extremely important and I definitely made the right choice!"- K.H. / Google / Apr 15, 2014
"I'm so lucky i found the Gallery. There are so many to choose from, but I believe I've selected the best. The doc is knowledgable, approachable, tells you what to expect, offers suggestions without pressure. I've had the Ultherapy, skin rejuvenation, Botox, peels. My skin is great for a woman my age. My only wish, is that they had evening or weekend hours, for those of us who work, and can't always take off. I will continue my beauty regimen with the Gallery for a very longtime."- A.M. / Yelp / Feb 19, 2015
BOTOX is administered during an in-office appointment that typically takes about 30 minutes. The depth, length, quantity and location of wrinkles varies for each patient. Therefore, the injection treatment, including the dosage and injection location, is tailored during the procedure. Patients will be marked for the specific areas on the face that are going to be treated. The injection is given through a syringe to localized areas on the face. Patients will feel a small prick as the needle inserts through the skin, but any pain or discomfort is controlled with a cold compress.
What to Expect@headingTag>
Immediately following a series of BOTOX injections, there will be some mild swelling and redness at the injection site. This will subside a few hours after the procedure. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately, but exercise should be avoided for a few hours. It is also recommended that patients keep their heads elevated for the first 8-10 hours. Results following BOTOX will become apparent within 4-7 days. About a week after treatment, patients will notice an inability to fully move portions of their forehead. With limited movement, wrinkles will cease to appear. The result is skin that appears smooth and soft.
BOTOX treatment costs will vary depending on how much of the medication is used (the number of syringes). Most practices charge $350 for one full syringe of BOTOX. A treatment session typically takes 1-3 syringes. Therefore, the cost can range between $350-$700 per session.

Is it Safe?@headingTag>
BOTOX is approved by the FDA and has a long, safe history. It is administered in over 75 countries and consistently ranks as the most popular cosmetic procedure in America. However, even with its popularity, BOTOX is a drug and should only be administered by a qualified medical practitioner. Individuals who receive injections by someone inexperienced run the added risk of bruising, over medicating and ultimately, obtaining undesirable result.
In 2009, BOTOX gained competition when Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) was developed, approved by the FDA, and made available to the general public. Both drugs are used to relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles and frown lines. Some practices lean towards BOTOX to address forehead lines, while considering Dysport for crow’s feet. There has been much debate as to which drug is superior. Both have their advantages. Some distinct differences can be discussed during the consultation.
BOTOX or Filler?@headingTag>
Injectable fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane help decrease wrinkles by adding volume to certain facial structures, which creates the appearance of smooth skin. BOTOX, which temporarily freezes the underlying muscle, offers a similar result with a different approach. A skilled practitioner will be able to determine if a filler material or a product like BOTOX would garner the best results.
Individuals who wish to soften and decrease facial lines and wrinkles may be candidates for BOTOX. The most common age to receive BOTOX injections is between 30-55. However, it is also common for patients younger and older to receive injections.
BOTOX is not a permanent fix. Results will last for several months - sometimes longer - but they will not last forever. Qualified injectors will tell you there is good news and bad news when it comes to BOTOX. The good news is, if you are not happy with your results, the results will only last a few months. Likewise, the bad news is, if you love your results (which most people do), the results will only last a few months. Regardless, many patients recognize even the temporary results are worth feeling and looking younger.
