What is Botox®?
Botox® is a minimally invasive injectable cosmetic treatment that helps to smooth away the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the upper third of the face. Botox® works because of its active ingredient, botulinum toxin, that temporarily relaxes the muscles in the treated areas. The relaxed muscles will no longer make the repeated facial movements that cause fine lines and deep wrinkles to appear, giving you a naturally refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. Botox® is most commonly used to treat wrinkles across the forehead, frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet around the outer eyes, and bunny lines along the bridge of the nose.
How Much does Botox® Cost?
The price of your Botox® treatment will vary depending on the size of your treated area, and the amount of product needed to help you achieve your desired results. To get a better idea of how much your Botox® treatment will cost, come in for a private consultation with Dr. Amy B. Lewis and her staff.

What Can I Expect During my Botox® Treatment?
Before your Botox® treatment begins, Dr. Lewis may apply a topical anesthetic to your treated area. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout the entirety of your treatment. Once numb, Dr. Lewis will make a series of strategically placed Botox® injections into your treated areas. The entire treatment process typically takes under an hour to complete, after which patients are able to return to their normal daily activities including work.
What Results Can I Expect from Botox®?
Following your Botox® treatment, you may notice some mild tenderness and swelling around your treated area. This is normal and typically resolves on its own within a day or two of treatment. While you may see some improvement immediately following your treatment, the active ingredients in Botox® may take up to three to five days to take effect in your body. Patients will be able to see the full results of their Botox® treatments within one week of treatment. Dr. Lewis and her team typically recommend patients come in for regular treatments every three to four months to maintain their desired look.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox®?
