What Are They?
Botox®, Xeomin® and Dysport® are injections used to soften up facial wrinkles and improve facial features. They are quick 10-minute treatments with minimal discomfort and no downtime. Botox is FDA-approved for frown lines (“the elevens”) , crow's feet, and forehead lines but is used in other areas as well.
The treatment is usually quick and there is no downtime. You will notice the full results in 4-10 days.
What does the treatment feels like?
Most patients report that being injected with Botox feels like a pinch. If you are sensitive to pain we can use ice or apply numbing cream to decrease your discomfort.
Would it look natural?
If you dislike overdone or unnatural looks, you are not alone. This is probably the most common fear with any cosmetic procedure.
Botox®, like any other cosmetic procedure, is a technique-sensitive treatment and is work of science+ art. In the right hands Botox will give subtle results, where no one would be able to tell you’ve had anything done.
When is good time to start?
People are starting to use Botox® treatments earlier ad earlier as we now know the wrinkle prevention is much more effective than wrinkle treatment. There is no right or wrong time to start Botox®. Make an appointment to discuss your goals and cosmetic desires with Dr. Heidi.
How does it make YOU feel? Here are some quotes from Dr. Heidi’s patients:
“Younger, but not plasticy younger, just a little softer."
“Opened up my face but did not make me look frozen.”
"Makes me look happier and not as angry looking.”
"I need to compete with younger people at work and it has helped soften up my features.”
"Can definitely see softening of the lines around my eyes and I love it.”

Botox® for Excessive Sweating
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, of hands, feet, or underarms is a common condition can interfere with one’s daily life and cause social embarrassment. Botox® injection is a great option for those who have tried other forms of antiperspirants or prescription medication without success. It helps by blocking the nerves that are responsible for activating your sweat glands.
This FDA-approved treatment is quick and easy, can reduce sweating by up to 75% after just one injection, and can last for up to 6 months. I inject the armpit, palms or any other area where excess sweating occurs with a small needle in a grid-like pattern.
For many people, this procedure can drastically improve their quality of life. ⠀
