Botox is a non-invasive treatment that works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that create certain unwanted lines and wrinkles on the face. At VIDA Aesthetic Medicine, we often see clients that hesitate to try Botox because they are concerned about looking “frozen”, but these clients are surprised to find that a controlled amount of Botox combined with a carefully placed needle can achieve the natural, youthful look that they desire. Looking frozen is not the desired effect of Botox and at VIDA Aesthetic Medicine, we strive to deliver the best results possible. By analyzing the facial muscles, our providers can soften lines created by certain facial expressions such as crow’s feet or frown lines. Botox Cosmetic has been used safely worldwide for the past two decades and has been FDA-approved for cosmetic use since 2002. Although Botox is typically used to soften lines on the face, other areas of concern can be assessed by one of our expert injectors.
