As we age, fine lines can emerge on our face reflecting the passing years. These lines are referred to as wrinkles and for many of us they are unwanted. Fortunately, there is a way to fight the battle of aging and hold onto that youthful appearance. The solution is Botox® Cosmetic. Botox® Cosmetic is the #1 non-surgical cosmetic treatment received. With over 5 million procedures performed annually, Botox® Cosmetic is a safe, effective treatment for unwanted wrinkles and lines.

What is Botox®?

Botox® Cosmetic is a natural, purified protein that is administered through an injection using a micro-needle and provides dramatic results with minimal bruising or discomfort. Treatment is suitable for use in people ranging in age from eighteen to sixty-five. Results are generally visible in a few days and can last several months*. Botox® Cosmetic can also be used to create a “Lip Flip” – see below for further information on that procedure specifically.

How does Botox® work?

Small doses of Botox® are injected into specific areas of the face to help reduce or eliminate wrinkles around the eye’s or mouth by relaxing the muscles. The muscles are temporarily paralyzed, which allows facial muscles to relax and reduces the pulling effect that creates those lines. Overactive muscles relax as the protein blocks the transmission of nerve impulses. Although office visit times may vary, the procedure generally takes about 20 minutes to complete.

With thousands of injections performed yearly, our nurses aim to give you a natural, more youthful look. Our nursing staff is not commissioned or incentivized to inject more product than is necessary for you to achieve your desired outcome.

We can help you regain your youthful appearance and get rid of those lines and wrinkles.

We are a participating practice of the Brilliant Distinctions Program.

*Individual results may vary.

What is a Botox® Lip Flip?

Botox® Cosmetic is strategically injected into the sections of the orbicularis oris, a muscle that surrounds the mouth and controls the movements  of the mouth and lips, to target only the superficial layers of the muscle at the side of the lip and lower lip to relax the muscle fibers enough to flip the lip outward without affecting the function of the muscle.  This is considered an “off-label” procedure and results can vary patient to patient. This procedure is performed in our King of Prussia or Harrisburg locations only.
