A natural and conservative approach to wrinkle reduction is best achieved using either Botox or Dysport. These injectable neurotoxins soften lines and reduce deep wrinkles, while still allowing you to remain full of expression. Botox works by weakening the signal that is passed between the brain and the muscle; which softens these overly strong facial expressions or wrinkles. As the severe pull of the muscle relaxes, the overlying skin ultimately flattens and smoothes.
With Botox or Dysport, our experienced, cosmetic nurse injectors can smooth away expression lines and stubborn wrinkles with a quick, no-downtime procedure. Botox is an excellent option for both men and women who want to achieve a more youthful appearance without the discomfort or downtime associated with invasive procedures.
Since the discovery of neurotoxins for cosmetic use, neurotoxins are now commonly used to prevent TMJ and treat hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating of the underarms, hands and feet.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the risks or side effects of Botox?
There are no known generalized side effects to Botox. Complications are rare but possible side effects include the weakening of a nearby muscle, resulting in its temporary loss of function (e.g., a droopy eyelid).
How long does Botox last?
Botox effects vary from person to person, but usually last for approximately 3-4 months.
How much does Botox cost?
At ICLS we truly believe these products should not be thought of as a commodity, but should be purchased based on the skill of the injector and the result that can be achieved. We offer Botox at $10 per unit, a price that has remained consistent for well over a decade. Contact our office for details.
Aftercare and Recovery
Patients should not touch the areas injected for the rest of the day to avoid the migration of the product to other areas. You should also avoid laying down for the remainder of the day so you do not fall asleep and put unwanted pressure on your face. You may get a slight headache after being treated with Botox, which is completely normal. Tylenol can be used in order to alleviate any discomfort.
