As you age, you’re likely to notice more wrinkles. This can often leave you feeling as though there’s nothing you can do to regain your once youthful appearance. However, thanks to injectable treatments such as Botox
Why Consider Botox®?
Botox® can be used to combat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and prevent new signs from forming. If the mirror has become less friendly to you, or you just want to look younger again, this non-surgical option may be right for you. These injections are extremely popular–nearly 6.7 million were performed in 2014, and they have become more popular since.
How Is Botox® Performed?
Botox® is given in injection form. This may be just what you’re looking for if you’d rather avoid surgery. Dr. Deborah Farrell will work with you to determine the injection sites necessary for improving the appearance of existing facial lines and wrinkles.
What Is the Recovery Process Like?
There is generally no downtime following a Botox treatment, and you should be able to resume your usual schedule after treatment. There are unlikely, but possible side effects when getting Botox® injections. Possible side effects include bruising, headache, minor discomfort and other non-serious problems. This will be discussed at the time of your consultation with Dr. Deborah Farrell, who will provide you complete information on the procedure, expectations, possible side effects, and the “recovery” process.

When Will You Notice Results?
Botox® takes effect in as little as a few hours to several days. You can expect the results to last as long as three to four months with optimal treatment.
As you start to notice the results of your treatment begin to fade, you may return to Dr. Deborah Farrell for regular touch-up treatments. Botox® can also be combined with other non-surgical treatments, such as dermal fillers, to achieve a more complete rejuvenation of the face.
