Diminish Forehead Lines & Frown Lines
As you grow older, you may develop forehead lines, frown lines between your eyebrows, smoker’s lines around your lips, and crow’s feet around your eyes. While these expression lines are completely natural, they can make you look and feel old and tired.

We offer personalized Botox in Medford treatments to smoothen your facial skin and reverse the signs of aging.

What is Botox?
Botox is a popular cosmetic injection for unwanted facial wrinkles. With a few strategic injections, Botox can temporarily suppress unwanted dynamic wrinkles on the face, such as forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Even though Botox is a household name for its aesthetic value, it’s also used for numerous medical treatments for TMJ, migraine headaches, muscle spasticity, and more. Botox results appear within two weeks and last for 3 to 4 months.
Benefits of Botox:

- Only involves a few simple injections
- Minimal discomfort during the treatment
- No harsh side effects or complications
- Addresses the root cause of wrinkles
- Prevents the onset of new facial wrinkles

How Botox Works
Botox belongs to a category of cosmetic injections known as neuromodulators or wrinkle relaxers. All neuromodulators are made of the active ingredient botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin protein that can temporarily prevent communication between nerve endings and muscles. Since dynamic wrinkles occur because of the overuse or contraction of certain facial muscles, Botox in Medford injections can temporarily paralyze the muscles responsible for your expression lines. Soon, the unwanted facial wrinkles smoothen away and dissipate.
Can Botox prevent wrinkles?
Botox can, in some cases, prevent or delay the onset of facial wrinkles. If you start undergoing regular Botox treatments in your early 20s, your facial muscles won’t develop enough to cause permanent expression lines. Early Botox intervention can help you delay the signs of aging and maintain youthful skin well into your 30s or 40s.
What happens during the Botox treatment?
The Botox treatment is fairly simple. We cleanse your facial skin and apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. We select the appropriate units of Botox to ensure natural-looking wrinkle correction without freezing your expressions. The Botox units are carefully injected into the targeted facial muscles using ultrafine needles. The treatment concludes within 30 minutes.
What are the side effects of Botox?
Botox causes minimal post-treatment side effects. The most common side effects of Botox in Medford include redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, and numbness around the treatment areas. The side effects usually fade away within a few days.
Is there any downtime after Botox?
Botox doesn’t involve any downtime. You may resume your daily activities and work immediately after your treatment. But you should avoid strenuous physical activities for a day or two.
When will I see the results of Botox?
You might notice slight improvements in your facial skin after a few days. But the final results of Botox may take 1 to 2 weeks to appear, so you need to be patient.
How long will the Botox results last?
The results of Botox usually last for 3 to 4 months. After about 3 months, your facial wrinkles will gradually start appearing, so you’ll need additional touch-ups.
How many Botox sessions do I need?
Most patients opt for 3 to 4 Botox treatments per year to maintain youthful skin for life.
