Lines and wrinkles are a frustrating, inevitable issue we all face. Wrinkles occur in two forms: static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles are a result of decreased volume and skin laxity. Dynamic wrinkles form when the muscles in our face make repeated motions, such as the muscles that we use to frown or smile. Eventually, the muscles that create a dynamic wrinkle may hold the wrinkle in place permanently, even when your facial features are at rest.
Botox is designed specifically to target dynamic wrinkles that commonly form on the brows, between the eyebrows, under the eyes, or around the mouth.
Static wrinkles are best addressed with dermal fillers. Many patients decide to address both their static and dynamic wrinkles by receiving Botox and dermal fillers during the same session for complete facial rejuvenation!
What is Botox?
A Botox treatment takes only 15 minutes and requires no downtime afterward.
Botox is a highly popular anti-aging injectable that has been FDA-approved for cosmetic use since 2002. Botox’s active ingredient is a protein derived from the botulinum toxin. Botox is a neuromodulator that achieves smooth, youthful skin by relaxing the muscles responsible for a dynamic wrinkle. Botox will calm the muscle for three to six months. You will enjoy skin that is smoother and wrinkle-free!

What is the Liquid Facelift?
Today’s cosmetic injectables and injection techniques are more effective at fighting wrinkles than ever before.
Patients have the option of combining Botox with dermal fillers to achieve full-face rejuvenation, in less than thirty minutes!
Dermal fillers are also an excellent option for patients who would like to contour their facial features, such as add more volume to the cheeks or lips.
Dermal fillers are anti-aging injectables designed to restore youthful volume to the skin. Their main ingredient, hyaluronic acid, is a molecule found naturally in young, healthy skin. Dermal fillers restore hyaluronic acid to nourish the skin and stimulate the production of new, supportive collagen. As a result, skin becomes smoother and fuller, banishing wrinkles. By addressing dynamic wrinkles with Botox and filling static wrinkles with dermal fillers, patients achieve a completely refreshed, glowing complexion. The best part is, results look natural!
Dermal fillers we offer include Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Plus, Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Volbella, and Restylane. Dr. Erfani will be happy to discuss the unique benefits of each of these dermal fillers with you.
If you are frustrated by the development of frown lines, crow’s feet, or lipstick lines, you are an excellent candidate to erase your wrinkles and rejuvenate your look with Botox.
- You are a good candidate for Botox if you:
- Have healthy skin laxity
- Are in overall good health
- Are over 18
- Have positive but realistic expectations of the results you will achieve
Patients who are experiencing skin irritation in the desired treatment site will need to wait until this issue abates before receiving Botox. Candidates who have thicker skin or struggle with eye ptosis are encouraged to share these conditions with Dr. Erfani so that he can determine if Botox is right for you.
If you have mild to moderate wrinkles on your brow, under your eyes, on the bridge of your nose, or around your mouth, you are a good candidate for the benefits of Botox. Good candidates include men and women who have neck bands, experience migraines or are struggling with hyperhidrosis.
Patients who are interested in fighting their wrinkles with Botox may also be good candidates for Xeomin, a neuromodulator that accomplishes results similar to Botox. Xeomin is more affordable than Botox and in the case of some patients, lasts longer in the body. Dr. Erfani will thoroughly discuss these treatment options with you during your private consultation.
Dr. Sadi Erfani takes the time to help every patient find the cosmetic solutions that are just right for them. Together, you will create a custom-tailored rejuvenation plan designed to meet your unique goals for your appearance. Dr. Erfani will examine your skin’s health during your private Botox consultation and make a recommendation of the anti-aging treatment plan that he feels is most appropriate for you.
Please ask any questions that you have about Botox during this meeting! If you still have questions after your consultation, please do not hesitate to contact us.
If Dr. Erfani believes a combination of treatments or an alternative solution will provide your preferred results, he will share his professional opinion with you.
Botox: Convenient & Effective
Do you have 15 minutes? Then you have time for Botox!
Treatment with Botox is quick and comfortable. Patients have the option of receiving a numbing cream to help keep them completely pain-free during the injection. Once the treated area is numb, Dr. Erfani will inject the Botox, targeting the muscles that are creating unwanted wrinkles. Once the Botox is in place, your treatment will be complete!
Many patients decide to receive both Botox and dermal fillers during a single treatment session to achieve rejuvenation of their entire face.
If you are interested in this convenient, effective anti-aging treatment, please do not hesitate to let Dr. Erfani or a member of our staff know so that we can thoroughly answer any questions you may have.
No downtime is required after receiving Botox! Patients are allowed to get right back to their day after their treatment.
Bruising, swelling, or redness may occur at the injection site following treatment. Some patients may decide to take a day or two off work until these conditions a less visible. Post-procedure after-effects will subside within a few days of treatment. Patients can relieve these post-procedure conditions with intermittent ice application.
Recipients of Botox should not touch their face for six hours after receiving their injection.
The muscle-relaxing effect of Botox will take time to develop before patients see their final result. Results of Botox will emerge within three to fourteen days. Once your Botox has taken effect, your skin will be smooth and wrinkle-free!
Results of Botox will last for three to six months. Patients can easily extend their results with a personalized treatment plan with Dr. Erfani for a long-lasting, refreshed effect.
What does Botox do to your body?
Botox is an FDA-approved neuromodulator. The main ingredient is a protein derived from the botulinum toxin. Botox erases wrinkles by preventing the targeted muscle from responding to the neural signal telling it to overfire. The injection and its effects are completely safe. Botox can take a few days before the desired outcome is visible. The results achieved with Botox will wear off in three to six months, but can easily be extended with subsequent treatments.
How long do the beneficial effects of Botox Cosmetic last?
The effects of Botox last from three to six months. Patients can extend their results of Botox for the long-term with a customized treatment plan.
Due to the differences in people’s body chemistry, some patients accomplish longer-lasting results with Xeomin than they do Botox. Often, patients find that they respond better to one neuromodulator over another.
How Much Does Botox Cost?
The price of a Botox treatment will depend on the details of your personalized treatment plan. The injection site and amount of Botox that is used to achieve the desired results will vary from patient to patient. Once you agree to the terms of your treatment plan with Dr. Erfani, you will receive an appropriate cost breakdown.
