Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repeated muscle movements made during normal facial expressions. Over time, this creates permanent lines and creases in the skin. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by temporarily paralyzing the responsible muscles, allowing tissues to relax and wrinkles to smooth away.
The best BOTOX® results are seen in those who are good candidates for the procedure. Not all wrinkles can be improved with BOTOX®, as deeper lines that develop due to volume loss rather than muscle movement may respond better to injectable fillers.

Planning Your Procedure
Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Nein is your first step for seeing the best BOTOX® results. During the consultation, you can discuss your personal goals and Dr. Nein can tell you more about what you can expect, including explaining where BOTOX® injections can be planned for the most benefit.
Dr. Nein will conduct a physical evaluation during the consultation and will go over any variables that could affect your results, such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, or existing health concerns.
Heidi’s BOTOX® Story
“I kept hearing from my co-workers “Heidi you look mad.” I wasn’t. In fact, I was the happiest I had been in a very long time. So I looked in the mirror and I saw it. I saw what they meant. I did look mad. I had these lines between my eyebrows and also around my eyes.”
Your Recovery & Results
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections should only take upwards of 30 minutes, so you should be ready to return home or back to work once finished. Some bruising or swelling may occur, but should dissipate within a few hours.
You should notice results from BOTOX® within two to seven days as dynamic wrinkles fade and become less noticeable. Although the effects will gradually wear off after a few months, many people find over time that they need fewer injections to achieve the same results, and new wrinkles are slower to develop.
