BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults. Wrinkles such as worry lines, laugh lines, neck lines, crow’s feet and neck bands are caused by muscles under the skin contracting when we laugh, smile or express emotions. Neuromodulators, or muscle relaxants, such as Botox®, are used strategically to relax certain muscles that convey a negative connotation like anger, sadness and looking tired. When placed correctly, neromodulators, are used to ‘wake up’ other muscles that convey a positive expression leaving you fresh, rested and more youthful looking.
BOTOX® is so effective because it works on the root of the cause, the muscles. BOTOX® temporarily weakens specific, targeted muscles underlying the skin, reducing their ability to contract. No contractions means significantly less wrinkles, resulting in smoother skin!
Our BOTOX® treatments do more than just reverse lines and wrinkles:
- Raise drooping brows or reverse a downward mouth
- Lift the neck and define the chin and jawline
- Instant Neck Lift, Jawline and Chin Definition with BOTOX® Cosmetic
- Treat excessive underarm moisture for up to 12 months
How Soon Will I Get Results?
The full effect of BOTOX® will be in 10-14 days and the treatment lasts for three to four months. And patients who repeat the treatments every few months over a period of time and follow suggestions and recommendations typically see longer-lasting results. *Our patients typically see results in 3-5 days
Am I a candidate for Preventative BOTOX®?
If you can limit the repetitive gestures that eventually cause wrinkles, you might not get them in the first place.
Sabrina’s philosophy follows the proverb, “a stitch in time saves nine”, by which early, proactive efforts reduce the need for more invasive procedures later. So if you’re as young as 24 “with finely etched lines—even when you’re skin is relaxed,” you’re a candidate. Sabrina maintains that this philosophy applies to Dermal Fillers, Laser Facial Treatments and Medical Grade Skincare. Provided you keep up your skincare regimen, “a stitch in time saves nine.”
Still Not Sure?
BOTOX® treatments are safe and only take a few minutes to administer. Depending on the severity and area of the wrinkles, you’ll be up and away in ten to twenty minutes, with just a few BOTOX® injections.
Patients decide to get a muscle relaxant such as Botox® for a number of reasons. When using these muscle relaxers, there is usually no downtime associated with them, which means that no one has to know unless you choose to tell them. The results appear gradually and disappear gradually, making the results subtle, yet dramatic.
Botox® Cosmetic is the Number One aesthetic procedure in the world, for no other reason than it works!
Botox® has less “spread” than other neuromodulators making it more applicable for advanced techniques; thus yielding Sabrina’s patients more preventative and customizable results.

WARNING: DISTANT SPREAD OF TOXIN EFFECT
Postmarketing reports indicate that the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic and all botulinum toxin products may spread from the area of injection to produce symptoms consistent with botulinum toxin effects. These may include asthenia, generalized muscle weakness, diplopia, ptosis, dysphagia, dysphonia, dysarthria, urinary incontinence and breathing difficulties. These symptoms have been reported hours to weeks after injection. Swallowing and breathing difficulties can be life threatening and there have been reports of death. The risk of symptoms is probably greatest in children treated for spasticity but symptoms can also occur in adults treated for spasticity and other conditions, particularly in those patients who have an underlying condition that would predispose them to these symptoms. In unapproved uses, including spasticity in children, and in approved indications, cases of spread of effect have been reported at doses comparable to those used to treat cervical dystonia and upper limb spasticity and at lower doses.
