Reverse frown lines. In real time.
Fine lines, frown lines, how-did-those-get-there lines. Whatever you call them, there’s a solution at Ideal Image. Botox® smoothes wrinkles on the forehead, treats the lines in between the eyes, and improves the appearance of crow’s feet. Or whatever you call them.
This minimally invasive, FDA-approved treatment requires zero downtime, so you can come in for a quick treatment on your lunch break. And our nurses and physician assistants are experts in administering it properly. They use a very fine needle to inject Botox® into the facial muscles, totally reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Frequently Asked Questions
Botox® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, moderate to severe crow’s feet, and forehead lines in adults. Unlike a face lift or other kind of invasive facial rejuvenation procedure, this treatment takes minutes and requires zero downtime.
Using a very fine needle, Botox® is injected into the facial muscles that are responsible for unsightly wrinkles and fine lines and relaxes the muscles. The ingredients in Botox® block the signal from the nerve to the muscle, and therefore reduce its ability to contract and form unsightly wrinkles.
The cost depends on you and your needs. Everyone's a little bit different. Our consultants will work with you to customize a treatment package based on exactly what your needs are.
The effects of the treatment can last anywhere from 3-6 months. Many factors can influence how long the effects last. As the product wears off, muscle action returns gradually, and the previously treated lines and wrinkles may begin to reappear, and you may need another treatment. Some of the factors that may shorten or lengthen the effects are: your age, sun damage, condition of skin, facial structure and expressions, diet, and your past experiences with Botox® and other wrinkle relaxers.
You may begin to notice Botox® results within 72 hours with the maximum effect visible at 14 days. Results may vary.
Botox® Cosmetic is FDA-approved and injections are relatively safe when performed by an experienced injector. It has proven to be a successful and valuable therapeutic protein when dosage, frequency of treatment, and variety of treated clinical conditions are considered. The best way to ensure you receive the results you are looking for is to only receive injections from a highly experienced provider, such as the medical and nursing professionals at Ideal Image.

While most people aged 18 to 65 are excellent candidates for Botox® and wrinkle relaxers, you should not use Botox® if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a skin infection or other condition in the area to be treated, are allergic to any ingredients in Botox®, Dysport, or any other botulinum toxin brand, have had a facial surgery, have difficulty swallowing, or have weakness in your forehead muscles. If you have any concerns as to whether or not you may be a good candidate, one of our consultants will be happy to answer any questions you may have. With any medical procedures, it is best to discuss the procedure with your doctor before starting treatment.
