What Is Botox®?
Botox® is a dermal filler that is injected using a very fine needle. Botox® restores the skin’s radiance, and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles along with other visible signs of the aging process.

Who May Be a Good Candidate for Botox®?
Any adult in good health who wants to achieve a more youthful appearance may be eligible for Botox® treatment. Botox® is a good preventative treatment for younger skin to help protect against wrinkles and lines as you age. It is also excellent for mature skin to help restore firmness and elasticity. If you want to eliminate wrinkles, creases, and fine lines from your face, Botox® may be your solution.
How Should I Prepare For Botox®?
Dr. Ekstrom will check your medical history to make sure you are a good candidate. If you have had other dermal filler injections in the past four months you may have to postpone treatment. If you take medications, such as aspirin and other blood thinners, allergy medications, sleep aids, NSAIDS, or muscle relaxers, she may recommend that you temporarily suspend some of these medications to prepare for Botox® treatments.
How Does Botox® Work?
Also known as botulinum toxin A, Botox® works by temporarily immobilizing facial muscles, giving skin a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance. Botox® is injected into the skin using a fine-gauge needle. The number of injections required depends on how many wrinkles, creases, and lines are treated. A single treatment usually lasts about four to six months, and patients return regularly for follow-up injections. Over time, the facial muscles treated become naturally relaxed and you will require fewer follow-up treatments.
How Much Does Botox® Cost In Worcester?
