Botox® is a variation of botulinum toxin, a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces facial lines and wrinkles for up to four months.
Botox® works well for treating those muscles that are repeatedly over-contracted during facial expressions such as frowning or squinting. Treating frown lines, forehead creases, vertical lines between the eyebrows, or crow’s feet near the eyes, can give you a relaxed and rested appearance within a matter of days. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that botulinum toxin injections are effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
Dr. O’Daniel and his nurse injector administer Botox® injections in the office. Injections can be repeated every three to four months to maintain results.
Recovery is immediate, and improvement is usually visible within 2-10 days.

Fat injections restore volume. Utilizing the patient’s own fat, microinjections are used to restore lost volume in the cheeks, around the eye, and mouth. There is the additional “stem-cell”-like affect seen with reduction of wrinkles, improved skin quality, and maintenance of the fat replacement.
