Very Happy - Botox on Lines Between my Eyes and my Forehead

I was very nervous about getting botox as I have never done this procedure before. In fact, I'm really not the type of person who would do something to alter my physical appearance and I'm a bit of a skeptic.

54 Years Old -Tired of Looking Tired! - Sandy, UT

I had a great experience. ( upper and lower) It was not all that painful, I healed fairly fast and I absolutely LOVE my results. I was so tired of people asking me "what's wrong, aren't you sleeping?" or "that must have been some party"! I'm a health nut, I just had horrible bags and lots of extra upper eyelid skin. me so happy!

Migraine headache prevention with Botox

Discovery of Botox™ Benefit for Migraine PreventionMany years ago when treating cosmetic patients with Botox™ to reduce wrinkles in the forehead and eyebrow region some patients began to note an improvement in headaches which lasted as long as the Botox™ was effective for reducing wrinkles. I used to think the overlap was atypical but it is not surprising when you realize that 18% of women suffer from migraines. An over abundance of these patients collected in my practice...


Innovations By John D. McCann, MD, PhD Ultherapy™: Using sound to improve appearances There are many medical devices that have been invented to tighten the deeper layers of the skin but they have all suffered from one of two problems: too much recovery, or too little result.
