At LUXURGERY, Dr. Shridharani and his team are proud to offer the full gamete of available FDA approved neuromodulators: Botox, Jeuveau, Dysport and Xeomin.

What Is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic is the only FDA approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both mild to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabella) and crow’s feet (lines around the sides of the eyes) in adults. Botox can also be used to soften the lines and creases on the forehead, around the mouth, chin, and neck.
How Do Wrinkle Reducers Work?
The wrinkle reducing agents are injected in the muscle that is contracting to cause the crow’s feet, frown lines, and the forehead lines. The medication will temporarily block the muscle to relax it and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
When Will I See Results After My Botox Injections?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines. It takes about 7-10 days to see maximal results.
How Long Do Results Last?
Every patient is different depending on his or her metabolism of Botox. Most patients find their injections last around 3-4 months. Certain patient metabolize faster than others leaving them with Botox’s effects for 2-3 months, while others have the amazing benefit for up to 6 months. Over time Botox can fatigue the muscle allowing for less movement after the Botox wears off, allowing more time between injections.

Botox For Excessive Sweating
Yes! Botulinum toxin type A has been shown to decrease sweating and excessive underarm sweating. Many patients find that they are very pleased with decreased sweating after injections during the summer months and they decide to continue the injections year round.
For Chronic Migraines
Botox became FDA approved treatment of chronic migraines in 2010.
Recovery From Injections
After your injection, you should expect a little bit of swelling and slight redness, which seems to resolve/go away in a matter of hours. Avoiding heavy exercise, salty foods, alcohol, and sleeping face down will help avoid excessive swelling.
