Botox injections leave you looking relaxed and “fresh” after active wrinkles get smoothed out by the neurotoxin. Botox is a minimally invasive aesthetics treatment that’s fast and painless, with no downtime. It’s a common procedure that’s been safely used in patients for years and is FDA approved.

When you’re ready to look and feel years younger without pain or downtime, schedule a consultation with MD Esthetics by phone or online to find out if Botox is right for you.
