In our early 20s, wrinkles and lines are non-existent. As time passes, your skin loses elasticity and its supple, firm quality. Wrinkles can form as a result of repeated muscle movements such as frowning or squinting. BOTOX® is the number one non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the United States due to its effectiveness in treating wrinkles caused by muscle movements.

What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® has an active ingredient of botulinum toxin type A. When this toxin is used in tiny quantities, it will temporarily block the signals sent to facial muscles. It could be seen as a type of muscle relaxer. When injected into critical areas, it can stop the muscles from contracting and reduce the appearance of “dynamic wrinkles” (wrinkles that form when your face is creating facial expressions). Static wrinkles, or wrinkles present when your face is at rest, may be treated with a combination of filler and BOTOX®.

BOTOX® is a quick and nearly painless way to rejuvenate your appearance and is ideal for those looking to look years younger without undergoing surgery.

I had heard great things about Dr. Ardesh, so I decided to get BOTOX by him. I was very impressed by his bedside manner and how comfortable him and his staff made my feel. It was a completely different experience than I've had in the past for BOTOX. I used to think that all BOTOX appts were the same, but this was different from the nurse injectors that I am used to and I am so happy with the results!
