BOTOX Cosmetic helps reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles caused by muscle activity in adult patients aged 65 years or less. BOTOX Cosmetic is injected into the muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles, disabling them and reducing their further deepening. In conjunction with Restylane® injections, JUVÉDERM®, chemical peels, and/or a forehead lift or face lift, complete facial rejuvenation is possible.
Because of Dr. Wang's unsurpassed commitment to patient care, he conducts all BOTOX Cosmetic consultations personally and administers the injections himself, unlike many other practices that rely on their nursing staff to provide BOTOX Cosmetic treatments and consultations. If you are considering BOTOX Cosmetic or any of the other treatments available through F.A.C.E., take a moment to read how former patients are expressing their appreciation for Dr. Wang's knowledge and care throughout the facial rejuvenation process.

What are the common benefits of BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX Cosmetic removes wrinkles produced by facial movement, resulting in a younger looking appearance. BOTOX Cosmetic is especially effective for treating crow's feet, forehead wrinkles, bunny lines on the nose, and down turned corners of the mouth. BOTOX Cosmetic will also reduce a "gummy" smile, dimpling of the chin, bands on the neck, as well as reducing the cheeks and calves. BOTOX Cosmetic has also proven effective in decreasing excessive sweating of the palms and underarms, and has also been shown to reduce migraine headaches.
How are BOTOX Cosmetic injections performed?
BOTOX Cosmetic treatments do not usually require anesthesia, however the skin can be treated with a topical numbing agent and you may be given a sedative if desired. During the procedure, Dr. Wang will use very thin needles to inject very small amounts of BOTOX Cosmetic into the affected areas of the face or area of the body to be treated.
How long do BOTOX Cosmetic treatments take?
BOTOX Cosmetic treatments may take from 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the number of injections required.
What can I expect after my BOTOX Cosmetic treatment?
You may experience mild bruising and swelling at the site of the injections, as well as a brief headache. You will be asked to keep your head upright and avoid rubbing the treated area. Within three to five days you will see results, but some areas may take as much as two weeks. Results of each treatment last from four to six months.
How long before I can return to normal activity?
You should be able to return to work or home immediately.
