BOTOX ® Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Made from a purified protein, BOTOX ® has the ability to relax the muscles you use to create facial wrinkles, giving you a youthful, younger look. Whether you are looking for that “frozen” look or want to look rejuvenated and rested, our BOTOX ® Strategists will help you achieve the results you are looking for.
BOTOX® is commonly used to eliminate forehead lines, worry lines, crow’s feet and vertical lines between eyebrows. At Vitality Works Medical, our practitioners use their expertise and experience to individualize your treatment while minimizing side effects, to create a natural looking result.

How are Botox Treatments Performed?
Getting BOTOX® injections is very quick and straightforward. The skin is prepared (sometimes by chilling) and then sterilized with alcohol swabs. A very small amount of Botox is injected, very precisely, at several locations on the face, using a tiny micro needle. The simple ‘bug bite’ impression is virtually pain free and takes less than 15 minutes. Patients also can immediately carry on with their normal activities of the day. But the effect is dramatic!
How long does BOTOX® last?
The actual treatment takes only a few minutes and the BOTOX® takes effect in three to four days. Gradually, over three to five months, the BOTOX® effect will fade, and the muscle action will return. When the frown line starts to reappear, a simple repeat treatment is all that is necessary to maintain the desired result.
