For those looking to decrease the signs of aging without the cost or downtime of a surgical procedure, Botox injections may be the ideal solution. This treatment is among the most popular group of cosmetic procedures: those involving botulinum toxin type A.

Botox is a quick and easy treatment that can usually be completed in 15 minutes or less. The purified protein works as a neuromuscular inhibitor, which limits the movements of targeted facial muscles, thus preventing wrinkles without creating an expressionless face. The most common areas of use are around the brows, eyes and mouth.

Considering that the dosage and placement can make a huge difference in the outcome, it’s important to receive Botox injections from an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. David Shafer of Shafer Plastic Surgery is a trusted surgeon who will provide you with a professional staff you can rely on.
