Q?What are the benefits of Botox®?
A.

The short term benefit of Botox® is skin tightening and an increased youthful appearance by decreasing fine lines. The long term benefit of having Botox® performed on a consistent basis lies in its preventative nature. By decreasing the lines and wrinkles in the face, Botox® is able to maintain the skin’s integrity and prevent lines and wrinkles from forming in the future.
