Wrinkles represent a lifetime worth of smiles and frowns. These accumulated facial movements can reveal a person’s age, even in some as young as their 30s. Botox, or botullinum toxin, is the quickest way for you to restore your appearance without surgery. It has successfully been used to treat facial lines and wrinkles for over twenty years and remains the #1 non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the U.S.
What Can Botox Change?
Renowned for its ability to safely and temporarily paralyzed facial muscles, botulinum toxin is a purified substance derived from bacteria. Botox is harnessed by plastic surgeons to treat:
- Frown lines
- Crows feet (wrinkles around the outside of the eyes)
- Forehead furrows
- Skin bands on the neck
Because Botox temporarily smooths lines and wrinkles, it is ideal for patients who prefer non-surgical treatment with no downtime and immediate improvement.
Overuse of Botox has become a concern of patients who see celebrity news about actors and actresses who are unable to express themselves after excessive Botox treatments. The key to treatment is a deep understanding of facial anatomy and the effect of Botox on your overall facial structure. Dr. Granzow adopts a conservative treatment approach by:
- Accounting for your unique facial structure and character.
- Evaluating your progress throughout the procedure to ensure that only precise areas are treated.
- Understanding your ideals and developing a treatment plan for subtle, natural-looking results.

Frequency of Treatments
One of the few drawbacks of Botox is its temporary nature. Patients will need to come in every 3 to 6 months to maintain their new look. Fortunately, repeated use of Botox will not diminish its effect and you will get consistent results from your treatments.
