What is BTA?
Botulinum is the most commonly used injectable for the wrinkles. It is an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein in science lab. It is effective via muscle relaxation and prevents muscles from contracting into a wrinkle.
Botulinum injections are often used to treat forehead and frown lines that come from making facial expressions. They can also reduce lines at the corners of your eyes (crow’s feet). Botulinum can only reduce what are called active wrinkles which are caused by muscle activity.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
It generally takes 4 to 5 days before you begin to see the effects of your BTA treatment and the effects will generally last about 3 months.
BTA is very well tolerated and safe when used for cosmetic treatments. There have been reports of problems after BTA treatment, but these have been cases where large doses of BTA were used but the amount of BTA used for cosmetic purposes is very small. While BTA does “paralyze’ the muscles in the face, the effects are temporary and do not lead to permanent problems.
BTA can be used to treat any wrinkle in the face caused by muscle actions under the skin. The most common places targeted include the forehead, glabella (“elevens”), around the eyes, and lip lines. It can also be used to raise the eyebrows, raise the corners of the mouth (to make it look like you have more of a smile instead of a frown), and soften the “bands” in your neck. We will evaluate your face with you to develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
Though BTA treatments require repeated applications and are considered temporary, this is an advantage in the rare event that you are dissatisfied with your new look. The effects of BTA generally last 3 months and will wear off.
