What Is Botox?
Botox treats lines and wrinkles by weakening the muscles which create these. Botox works best on lines that appear with facial movements, but also can improve some lines and wrinkles present at rest. The result of Botox treatments is a refreshed, more dynamic look.
Dr. Samimi and our nurses avoid a frozen and unnatural look by precisely injecting the affected areas. A gentle lift of the outside brow can be created with Botox in addition to treating forehead lines and crow’s feet. Dr. Samimi also uses Botox to treat lip lines, neck bands, the jaw and chin.
The results last from three to six months.
All injections are performed by Dr. Samimi or our nurses under close supervision by Dr. Samimi. These are performed in the comfortable and safe setting of our medical office. Other agents such as Xeomin are also available by request.

These results last for up to one year. RevivaMed often has specials on Botox treatments and rebates are available if you are enrolled in the
