You may be a candidate for BOTOX Cosmetic if you would like to treat facial wrinkles in the forehead, between the eyes, and in the “crow’s feet” areas around your eyes. BOTOX works by weakening the muscles that cause facial expressions. Once the treated muscles are weakened, the pull of the muscle relaxes and the skin flattens.Get the 5-star patient care you deserve at LJC
BOTOX can be used as a wrinkle treatment to smooth:
- Frown lines
- Crows feet
- Forehead furrows
- Skin bands on the neck
Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?
Although the results are visible with a smoother surface, BOTOX treatment does not radically change your facial appearance. You are able to show full expression without wrinkles and creases.

How BOTOX Is Injected
BOTOX Cosmetic can be administered in the office by appointment. BOTOX is freshly prepared on the day of injection.
Once prepared, the medication needs to be used within 12 hours, as the potency diminishes with time. Small amounts of BOTOX are injected into the facial muscles using a very tiny needle.
Enjoy pain-free BOTOX injections with add-on option PRO-NOX™
Every patient deserves a comfortable experience, so we now offer PRO-NOX™ as an add-on during injectables and other medical spa services.
What is PRO-NOX™?
PRO-NOX™ is a self-administered nitrous oxide (laughing gas) system that allows you to be in full control of your comfort. If at any point you feel you need something to take the edge off, simply breathe through the PRO-NOX™ mouthpiece for instant relief from pain and anxiety.
Unlike oral pain medication, PRO-NOX™ takes effect in seconds, but wears off minutes after your treatment, leaving no trace of the chemical in your body. You can safely drive and return to your normal routine without worrying about side effects.
Ask us about adding PRO-NOX™ to your treatment at your consultation, or contact us for more information!
