Botox is actually an umbrella term for a variety of different types of botulinum toxins.  In the U.S., there are three different types of botulinum toxins; Botox (Allergan), Dysport (Galderma) and Xeomin (Merz).  Treatment with each one results in limited muscle weakening/paralysis for a short time, yet some people come to prefer one over another when they've experienced them all.  Dr. Shaw offers all three options and will discuss them with you to decide which one is best for you.

Botox is a safe and effective treatment for the temporary reduction of moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles, as well as facial asymmetries, muscle contraction and migraine headaches.  Botox is often used in conjunction with injectable fillers which treat the static wrinkles that Botox alone can not alleviate. 

Dr. Shaw uses Botox to lift and shape the eyebrows, soften or eliminate lines on the forehead, "crow's feet", frown lines, lines under the eyes, bunny lines, dimpled chins, fine lines around the lips and reduce the appearance of gummy smiles.  Botox can also be used to eliminate migraines and reduce TMJ-related issues by injecting the specific clenching and grinding muscles.    



When you frown, smile or make any other facial expression, your muscles contract under the skin.  This constant muscle movement draws the skin together and causes it to lose elasticity over time.  The results can be frown lines, wrinkles and "crow's feet".  When injected carefully and precisely into specific muscles, Botox blocks nerve impulses from activating the muscles, so the skin above appears more relaxed and smoother.  In some cases, with repeated treatments, the wrinkle can actually disappear.  



A true artist, Dr. Shaw doesn't just "erase wrinkles".  Her expertise in the ART and SCIENCE of BOTOX guides her specifically tailored treatments to re-balance a patient's muscles and facial harmony resulting in a refreshed, younger version of yourself.   Careful observation of each patient's facial symmetry and muscular contraction will begin your consultation with Dr. Shaw.  With a meticulous eye and conservative approach, Dr. Shaw will discuss and determine with you the appropriate number of units of Botox needed to achieve your desired outcome.   



Botox treatments are quick and virtually painless.  Dr. Shaw has a very unique approach utilizing a gel ice pack and a gentle hand to ensure your comfort during the procedure.  If you prefer, the area can be numbed with anesthetic cream as well.  The entire procedure takes about 10-15 minutes and requires no recovery time.  Botox has very few side effects and allows you to resume normal activities immediately.  Although results may vary, most people see an improvement in three to five days.  Effects usually last three to six months.  Repeated treatments can lead to longer-lasting effects.
