Botox® cosmetic is a drug created from a bacterial neurotoxin called botulinum that when injected in small doses can relax the targeted muscles in your face that can cause unwanted lines and wrinkles, in turn giving you a softer and more relaxed appearance. Botox injections can also create a lifting effect by relaxing the muscles that pull down on the eyebrows giving a brighter, more youthful look.
Facial wrinkling occurs for several reasons. In addition to aging and genetics, loss of skin elasticity and sun exposure can hasten the formation of wrinkles over time. Smoking and other lifestyle choices can also speed up this process. The areas which are typically targeted for these treatments are deep frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and fine lines around the lips.

Q: Will people know that I have had Botox?
A: Only if you tell them! Botox is a very simple, virtually painless treatment that is performed to soften your appearance.
Q: How much does Botox cost?
A: Botox treatments are individually tailored to each person. Dr. Kelleher or our nurse injector offer free consultations to make up a plan customized for each person.
Dr. Kelleher charges $12/unit and our qualified nurse injector charges $10/unit.
Q: How long does Botox last?
A: Typically, about 3-6 months. People are individual in the longevity of their treatment because some muscles are stronger than others and it may wear off faster for them. Once the effects have worn off, you can then repeat the treatment indefinitely.
Q: At what age to people start getting Botox?
A: Botox can be for anyone over the age of 18. Some people choose to get Botox later in life to soften lines and wrinkles that have formed through the years while some people in younger generations choose to get Botox as a preventive measure for fine lines and wrinkles.
An injection used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines, without changing the look of your whole face. Untreated facial muscles remain unchanged, allowing expressions such as smiling to look and stay natural. By blocking the signal from your nerve to the treated muscle, Dysport temporarily reduces the movement that would otherwise cause wrinkles. Results can be seen within twenty-four hours of treatment and usually last around twelve weeks. Learn More

Sculptra is a filler that works gradually to induce the production of the body’s own collagen that we lose as we age. As a result, facial fullness is restored in the depressed areas of your skin such as creases, wrinkles, folds and scars and it also works for areas of greater facial fat loss. A natural, subtle look that can last for up to two years. The average number of Sculptra treatments is three sessions over a two to three month period. Learn More
