After years of domination in the cosmetic industry, BOTOX® is still widely considered to be one of the safest and most effective anti-aging procedures in the world. Using an advanced formula, BOTOX® can significantly soften some of the most common signs of aging, also known as expression lines.
Repeated facial muscle movements for decades eventually lead to the development of wrinkles in the parts of our faces that express emotion, thus the moniker “expression lines.” BOTOX® is a neuromodulator, meaning it can block nerve impulses, which relax the muscles in our faces that cause the development of crow’s feet, laugh lines, frown lines and more, creating a more youthful and smoother appearance. BOTOX® can also work as a treatment for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms.
As an injectable, BOTOX® can be delivered in one quick treatment with results that can last for multiple months. Decades of use by millions of patients around the world and multiple clinical trials have shown that BOTOX® is safe and reliable for long-term, repeated use.
Your BOTOX® treatment needs to be performed with skill and artistry to create the most natural, long-lasting results. That’s why your consultation with The Botox Lady is so essential for planning the right treatment. During your consultation, we will discuss your aesthetic goals, the risks and benefits of the procedure, your medical history, examine before and after photos, and answer any questions you might have about the procedure.
Your consultation will go a long way towards helping us plan the perfect BOTOX® treatment, so we can give you the rejuvenated look you’ve always wanted.
Your BOTOX® procedure will be incredibly quick, simple, and relatively painless—the procedure takes less than a half an hour to complete and no anesthesia is required. BOTOX® is typically injected into areas like around the eyes, forehead, and mouth to specifically target expression areas.
Some patients may experience mild bruising at the injection sites, but in general, BOTOX® does not require any downtime or recovery period. If bruising occurs, it should go away in a matter of days.
Dermal fillers work by plumping up the area around the injection site. Over time, aging thins the upper layer of skin, the epidermis, decreasing its ability to serve as a barrier to retain water. Additionally, the body’s production of collagen slows and the existing collagen becomes less effective. Thinning epidermis and decreased collagen effectiveness lead to eye wrinkles and other signs of aging. All dermal filers act as anti-aging products by reducing the effects of thinning epidermis and less-effective natural collagen.
While the results you experience with dermal fillers is immediate, it’s important to understand that dermal fillers are not permanent. The way your face continues to age and how your body absorbs fillers will determine the timing of repeat treatments. There is no downtime with dermal fillers. You can resume most activities right away.

Kybella® The Fat-dissolving Injectable
KYBELLA is the first and only FDA approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness. Kybella is a substance identical to deoxycholic acid naturally produced in the body that will absorb fat in the double-chin– for good! The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has approved the nonsurgical treatment for the double-chin and neck fat. A study performed by the American Society for Dermatologic last year reported that 68% of people were concerned with the extra chin or neck fat.
How does Kybella® work?
Though submental fullness is a common problem among adults, it’s remarkably undertreated. Many men and women assume they just need to accept their double chins as an effect of aging, poor genetics, or weight gain. Even efforts to diet and exercise are often not enough to change the appearance of a double chin. Kybella’s proven technology targets the fat in the double chin to dissolve the fat while tightening and smoothing the skin. The transforming ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid which is responsible for breaking down the unwanted fat tissue.
Deoxycholic acid exists naturally in the body and works to break down and absorb fat. Kybella is created using deoxycholic acid identical to the kind produced by the body, so when it is injected into submental fat, it kills the fat cells permanently. After a Kybella injection, the cells cannot store or accumulate fat, so your double chin will begin to recede and the fat will not return in the area or other areas as can happen with traditional liposuction
Kybella® (deoxycholic acid) is painlessly injected with a very tiny needle to the extra fat in your chin region; the treatment lasts 15-20 minutes.
This non-surgical treatment is quick, easy, and painless! Kybella consists of between 2 to 6 treatments within 6 months, depending on the severity of the double chin and your desired results upon completion of the treatment. Most patients notice significant improvement in the appearance of the face and chin after the second or third procedure. These results last forever, since the fat cells are permanently eliminated! Kybella will transform your double chin to eliminate the extra fat and help you feel confident with your lifted chin area.
