Frequent facial muscle movement can result in stubborn dynamic wrinkles that can leave lines and heavy creases around your face. Left untreated, your muscle movement will continue to deepen these lines and make them more prominent, giving you a much older appearance.
With our Botox treatments, we can freeze certain facial muscles to minimize the appearance of wrinkles while still allowing you to perform natural-looking facial expressions and movements.

Botox is neurotoxin that’s used in aesthetic medicine to freeze facial muscles. Your face consists of different facial muscles that are responsible for facial expressions and facial movements like kissing, smiling, frowning, puckering, and more.
When your muscles move, they also crease the skin above them. In your younger years when your skin cells have plenty of collagen and elastin, it’s easy for your skin to bounce back without leaving any sign of the creasing. But as you age and your collagen production drops or you repeatedly perform a certain facial movement, it can be more difficult for your skin to spring back to its original state. Eventually, the creasing will start to create folds, lines, and wrinkles on your skin. If left untreated, these lines will continue to deepen as you continue with muscle movement.
Botox can reduce the appearance of these lines, folds, and wrinkles by minimizing muscle movement. When injected into certain muscles, the botulinum toxin in Botox can temporarily freeze nerve signals that trigger muscle movement. This can stop instances of skin creasing, which can slowly reduce the appearance of wrinkles over time.
The process of getting Botox injections is fast, safe, and minimally invasive. One of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the United States, Botox is FDA-approved for both aesthetic and medical treatments for conditions like chronic migraine and hyperhidrosis. However, you’ll want to work with an experienced and highly-qualified provider to get the best results. With Dr. Reitman and her team, you can receive safe and effective treatments that freeze your muscles enough to minimize dynamic wrinkles while still having enough movement for natural-looking facial expressions.
Among all the different neurotoxin injections, Botox has been around the longest – which is why it’s no surprise that this specific botulinum toxin type has become synonymous with all neurotoxin injection treatments. It’s a popular option for those looking to treat dynamic wrinkles and offers several benefits, including:
Botox injections are a safe and effective way of treating dynamic wrinkles. It’s FDA-approved and contains safe amounts of botulinum toxin, so the risk of adverse effects when getting injections from a qualified provider like Dr. Reitman are very low. Rather than opting for invasive cosmetic surgery like facelifts to treat wrinkles, you can opt to explore the effects of Botox while minimizing downtime, recovery, and the risks associated with surgery.
Botox injections can treat different dynamic wrinkles, including:
With Dr. Reitman’s Botox injections, you can minimize the appearance of these lines and wrinkles that form along your face over time.
Before we administer treatment, our patients undergo an initial consultation with Dr. Reitman to see if they’re qualified to receive their treatment. During your consultation, you’ll get to learn more about Botox and what it can or can’t do, if it’s the right treatment option for you, and if you’re a qualified candidate who can receive Botox injections.
If you’re a suitable candidate for Botox treatments, you can proceed with getting Botox. Prior to the injection, our staff will apply a numbing cream around the injection sites to minimize the discomfort of the injection procedure. Dr. Reitman will then administer enough Botox into strategic areas around the affected facial muscle.
The entire session can take place within 30 minutes or less, but the Botox can take up to two weeks to settle and produce visible changes. You may need multiple Botox treatments to get the results you want, depending on factors like your age or how deep your wrinkles are.

A: There are two types of facial wrinkles: dynamic wrinkles and static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by frequent facial muscle movement, so these can be minimized when your muscles are frozen. Static wrinkles, on the other hand, are caused by factors like age, loss of collagen and elastin in skin cells, gravity, and UV damage. While Botox injections may have an effect on static wrinkles, it’s not the most effective solution. If you have both types of wrinkles, Dr. Reitman can recommend a combination of Botox and dermal fillers or other alternative treatments that can tackle both.
A: Botox has a temporary freezing effect, so it will eventually wear off. Although it can vary between patients, most patients notice the effects wearing off after four months, while some report the effects lasting for as long as six months. Factors like your metabolism and your body’s reaction to the injection can affect longevity.
A: The best way to see if you’re a good Botox candidate is to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Reitman. Adults that are in generally good health are suitable candidates for Botox. Those who aren’t a good fit for getting Botox injections:
