Non-Surgical Procedures

  • Botox® Cosmetic: From Allergan INC, is one of the most popular non-surgical procedures performed for the temporary correction of certain facial wrinkles. It’s a series of small intramuscular injections of an FDA approved purified protein. It works by reducing the activity of the muscles that cause frown lines, such as those between the brows, on the forehead and crow feet that cause wrinkles to form over time. The result is a smoother appearance of these areas for up to 4 months.
  • Botox for Hyperhidrosis Treatment:

    Excessive sweating, also known as Hyperhidrosis, is a medical condition that affects numerous Americans. Most patients complain of sweating of the underarms, hands, feet, or a combination of these. Milder treatment with topical solutions or oral medications are typically tried first. If these agents are not helpful, Botox injections of the underarm area are often used before resorting to more radical procedures, such as surgery. No matter what the treatment, we can help you regain confidence for your next handshake or for the next time you must raise your arms.

    What is the procedure like?

    On the day of your procedure, our health care professional cleans the area and performs an “iodine starch test” to see exactly where the sweating is coming from. They will then inject the Botox through many tiny injections. In the underarms, these injections are tolerated well with minimal pain. Of course, our HCP will want to evaluate you and treat you appropriately before doing the procedure. We can discuss the Botox procedure and different treatment options at the time of your appointment.

     I thought that Botox was only for wrinkles. How does it work on sweating?

    Botox temporarily blocks the chemical signals that are released by nerves trying to stimulate the sweat glands to work. If these messenger chemicals are blocked, the sweating no longer occurs.

     How soon does it work?

    Most patients start to notice improvement within several days, but it may take up to several weeks for optimal improvement.

     How long does it last?

    Although every patient is different, you may see improvement in sweating that lasts from 6-12 months before injections must be repeated.

     Does Botox work for sweating?

    In clinical studies, 81% of patients treated with Botox experienced at least 50% reduction in sweating. As with every treatment, results will vary among patients.

     Will my insurance cover the cost of Botox injections?

    Unfortunately we are a cash service office, we don’t take any insurance. However, we do offer CareCredit and very competitive prices for all the treatments. We will also be happy to give you a walk-out receipt so that you can file the procedure with your insurance for reimbursement. We try to keep the self-pay rate as reasonable as possible for this reason.
