BOTOX® Cosmetic

flowersBOTOX® Cosmetic injections can reduce the appearance of brow lines that have become etched over time from frowning, squinting, and other facial expressions. The line-erasing ingredient in BOTOX® Cosmetic is a highly refined protein derived from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. When injected into a facial line, this protein blocks the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, relaxing the muscle and smoothing frown lines and crow's feet. The rejuvenating effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic relieve patients of brow furrows so that they no longer look perpetually tired, sad, or angry.

BOTOX® Cosmetic gives near immediate results that can last as long as four months. The convenient, simple facial treatment takes only minutes to complete, and can easily be accomplished within a lunch hour without any post-procedural downtime.

Dr. Grecco is one of a handful of Oral & Maxillofacial surgeons trained and licensed to administer Botox®.  If you have ever wished for a quick and easy way to smooth the lines that crease your forehead or the corners of your eyes, we encourage you to schedule a BOTOX® Cosmetic appointment.
