BOTOX® Cosmetic is a remarkable treatment that erases frown lines, worry lines, and crow’s feet. It also maximizes and extends the results achieved through injectable fillers and laser skin treatments. Treatments are nearly painless, and effects last 3-6 months. Nayak Plastic Surgery is among the most experienced Botox Cosmetic providers in the country, delivering more Botox Cosmetic annually than 99% of practices in the US.

Each of our nurse injectors has years of experience and is personally trained by Dr. Nayak in the most current techniques and concepts.

I’ve heard BOTOX® Cosmetic is the same as botulism toxin.
Is that true?
Yes – BOTOX® Cosmetic is the purified toxin produced by the botulism bacteria! It works by selectively relaxing muscles that contribute to frown lines and certain other facial wrinkles. So why don’t you get botulism? The amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic needed to inject all at once to give you botulism is over 100 times the amount given in an average session, and there is no cumulative effect from session to session.
Will I lose normal facial expression?
No. Great BOTOX® Cosmetic means looking younger and more relaxed – not looking frozen. When properly placed, BOTOX® Cosmetic will relax the muscles that cause frown lines or other wrinkles but will not otherwise limit your range of normal facial expressions.
Will BOTOX® Cosmetic erase all wrinkles?
No – BOTOX® Cosmetic is best for wrinkles that form as a direct result of muscle contraction. Frown lines and crows’ feet are the best examples. With continued use, these wrinkles will soften over time and may even disappear. Wrinkles in other areas of the face, such as the smile lines, cheeks, or undereyes, are usually better suited for chemical peels or injectable fillers.
Will I have to use it forever?
BOTOX® Cosmetic usually lasts 3-4 months, at which point the muscles that cause the frown lines or other wrinkles will be fully active again. Most people choose to repeat the treatment at that point to maintain their results. For those who do not, however, their facial expressions and muscle motion will continue stay normal, just like before they ever had BOTOX® Cosmetic.
