What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a drug made from the neurotoxin Botulinum. It is the most popular cosmetic surgery treatment in the world, with more than 600 million treatments administered each year!
BOTOX® is used for:
Droopy Eyelids or a Low Brow?

BOTOX® or Brow Lift?
A Brow lift is often recommended for patients with:
Often patients who suffer from excess eyelid skin are really suffering from a drooping brow. A Brow Lift is a surgical procedure, with a recovery time of 1-4 weeks, with postoperative swelling usually resolved after 2-6 weeks. As you can see, there is a large range in recovery time. Everyone heals differently!
BOTOX® is a quick and easy procedure—treatment sessions can take as little as 5 minutes—and is completely non-surgical. While BOTOX® brow lifts can be very effective, they are temporary, lasting 3-4 months.
