Botox®

Using botulinum toxin, Botox® temporarily reduces facial wrinkles without surgery. It relaxes muscles by blocking nerve signals to the muscles, making the skin look smoother. Botox® is primarily used to treat areas around the eyes (crow’s feet), between the eyebrows (frown lines), and on the forehead. The procedure is quick, typically taking only a few minutes, and does not require anesthesia.

Botox® in West Des Moines, IA, helps individuals look younger, more relaxed, and refreshed. The treatment is suitable for adults who are in good health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes. Results are typically visible within a few days after the treatment, and the effects can last three to six months. A regular follow-up session can help you maintain your results.
