Botox

Do you have frown lines that make you look angry even when you’re not? Many of my patients tell me that they’ve thought about Botox to smooth out their wrinkles, but are afraid to look stiff and unnatural. The fact is that you can look naturally relaxed with Botox—but only if it’s done correctly, and that takes years of experience. I’ve treated patients (and myself) with Botox since 1996, and I’ve lectured extensively and taught other doctors how to use it correctly. Even so, I continue to refine my technique to give my patients the best results—as gently and painlessly as possible.
