What is Botox?

Over time, your facial muscles tend to settle a certain way when you laugh, smile, frown or squint, causing wrinkles and fine lines. Other factors can affect the presence of facial creases, including genetics, exposure to harsh UV rays without SPF protection, pollution or smoke. Give your appearance a boost and regain your confidence with a restorative Botox treatment from the Center for Weight Loss Surgery.

Botox injections can relax muscles that contribute to fine lines and blocked nerves. They help diminish the appearance of common wrinkles and can sometimes prevent new ones from forming. Though the results are temporary, it is usually used as an alternative to plastic surgery.


Before the actual procedure, you’ll meet with one of our certified Botox specialists to evaluate your facial structure. You’ll also discuss areas that you’d like to target, any risk factors and whether Botox is the right option. Our expert staff is available to answer any questions or concerns that may arise, providing helpful information and giving you peace of mind.

On the day of your appointment, the physician will expertly administer the Botox in the areas you’ve discussed. Though there may be minimal discomfort during the treatment, you can expect to return to normal activity after your appointment. One session lasts about 15 minutes.


Many people have two types of facial wrinkles: static and dynamic. Static lines are visible with a natural, relaxed expression, while dynamic wrinkles appear with more facial movements. Dynamic lines are typically present on the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the mouth, on the neck and around the eyes. To mitigate the look of these wrinkles, you can inject Botox in the lips, cheeks, forehead and other expressive areas of the face.
