What is Botox?
Botox is the original neuromodulator product FDA approved for the treatment of wrinkles. Since its approval over ten years ago, Dysport and Xeomin have been introduced by two competitor companies to combat lines and wrinkles created by excess muscle contraction. These treatments temporarily remove facial wrinkles in the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes and the nose. Can also elevate and shape the eyebrow lift and lift the heavy corners of the mouth. Can also be highly effective at slimming and refining the width of the lower face in patients with a bulky masseter muscle.
Treatments are performed by Dr. Weber with no discomfort. The effects of Botox treatment take three to four days to appear and last up to three to four months depending upon the amount of Botox injected and the patient’s muscle strength. When the effect begins to wear off, you will notice a return of muscle activity in the treated areas. We advise our clients to schedule a followup treatment when they notice troubling lines returning. Most patients choose to return three to four times per year for treatment.
Side effects of Botox
Occasionally, a small bruise can result from the injection but this can be camouflaged immediately with makeup. Temporary side effects can occur if migrates from the injection site. For this reason, we ask that you do not rub or massage the area for twelve hours after the injection. There are no known serious, side effects associated with the use of Botox, Dysport or Xeomin at dosages that we employ.
Typical treatment results include:
- Elimination of frown lines or the dreaded “11s”
- Softening of horizontal forehead creases
- Lifting and shaping of the eyebrows (botox brow lift)
- Softening of Crow’s feet and periorbital lines
- Elimination of nasal “bunny” lines
- Lifting and shaping of drooping corners of the mouth
- Slimming of the lower face by slimming the masseter muscle
- Improvement in neck banding or “cords”
- Treatment of migraine that does not respond to traditional migraine medications

My results and experience was top notch with Dr. Weber! From the moment I met the doctor I felt at ease by his comforting demeanor, and I greatly appreciated the time he took to make me feel comfortable with the process.
