Botox injections is a quick 10-minute treatment, and you’ll notice a difference in just a few days. Your Botox injections will last you somewhere around 3-6 months, depending on how well your body reacts to the injection. Please note that Botox injections is not a permanent treatment; after about 3-6 months, your facial lines will gradually reappear and additional injections will be needed.
What is Botox® Cosmetic and how does it work?
Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into your facial muscles. It is used to reduce the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” that develop around the eyes. It works by blocking the nerve impulses to the injected sites, reducing the muscle activity that causes these persistent lines to form. The effects of Botox® cosmetic are temporary, lasting up to 4 months.
Why should I consider Botox® Cosmetic?
You may have noticed frown lines between your brows or “crow’s feet” near your eyes, making you look tired or even older than you should. Ask Dr. Morse if Botox® is right for you. Real results, no surgery, and no recovery time necessary are a few of the reasons to choose treatment with Botox® Cosmetic.
Is there any medical reason to use Botox® Cosmetic?
Yes. Botox® Cosmetic may be used in the treatment of Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ/TMD). Botox® Cosmetic is injected into facial and jaw muscles to provide relief from jaw tension and soreness. Additionally, these injections can reduce bruxism (teeth grinding), minimize lockjaw, and eliminate bruxism headaches.
Will I still be able to have facial expressions?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with Botox® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised, just without the wrinkles and creases.
How long can I expect my results to last?
Visible results can last up to 4 months. Your own results may vary. Dr. Morse will discuss with you what you should expect and when you should schedule your next appointment.

Facial fillers can help replace this volume, giving you a youthful and refreshed look while diminishing facial lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin C Injection
Another injection that we offer is a 1ml dose of 500mg/2ml of Vitamin C as a supplement for the diet. For patients who may not want to consume oranges or other citrus fruits daily or if a patient is battling over-production of stomach acid, a Vitamin C injection once a week may help as a dietary supplement.
B12 Methylcobalamin Injection
The B12 injection is a 1ml dose of 1000mcg/2ml of Methylcobalamin as an energy supplement. By itself, like a Lipotropic injection, it will not provide adequate weight loss but must be in concert with a weight loss program, proper exercise and diet control.
