Botox treatments are an FDA-approved, anti-aging treatment in which a low dose of botulinum toxin type A administered by tiny injections directly into overactive muscles that cause lines to form for example wrinkles, frown lines, other fine lines and crow’s feet located on the face for both men and women.
Patients who receive Botox treatment are injected with a diluted form of a safe toxin that causes the relaxation and eventual controlled paralysis of certain treated muscles. A Botox injection effectively blocks specific nerve signals to each treated muscle, causing them to no longer have the ability to contract. Wrinkles, fine lines and other facial imperfections caused by sun damage, slight injury or the natural aging process are each softened as a result of Botox Reno.
Botox can be beneficial for:
- Stroke Patients
- Face and Wrinkles
Quick And Painless
Botox injections go directly into the muscle through a fine point needle and is considered a noninvasive treatment for anti-aging. Because Botox results in minimal discomfort during the procedure and anesthesia is not needed. The results can be apparent in just days, and last months. This treatment is done in less than 30 minutes, and patients can go about their day with little to no downtime is after the Botox is injected. A complimentary consultation is required prior to treatment.
Botox lasts for a period of four to six months before another injection is recommended, but the muscles eventually become trained to stop contracting over time. This reduces the occurrence of for fine lines, wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet appearing as deep or as noticeable on the face when Botox injections are a regular occurrence.
To decrease potential bruising, avoid these medications for at least one week prior to injections: Aspirin or Ibuprofen, Fish Oil, Vitamin E, “G” supplements (ginkgo, ginseng, garlic), St. John’s Wort. NSAIDs like Celebrex and Naproxen may cause thinning of the blood, consult your physician before discontinuing. Do not massage treated areas, or lay down for several hours post-treatment.

Botox injections are used to interrupt the signal from the nerves that triggers excessive sweating.More About This Treatment
Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating of the underarms and other areas of the body. The body natural sweats to cool down and prevent us from overheating, but people with hyperhidrosis sweat even when the body doesn’t need to be cooled. Sweat glands become overactive even when you are at rest or in a cool area.
Areas that may experience excessive sweating include:
- Head or Face
If you have hyperhidrosis, you may sweat in certain areas, or on both sides of the body. You may sweat only after waking up, or while sleeping. Symptoms that can be indicators of this condition include:
- Visible sweating, often soaking through multiple layers of clothing
- Sweat interferes with daily activities, such as difficulty holding pens, twisting doorknobs, or dripping sweat excessively
- Skin turns soft, white or peels in certain areas due to skin being wet for long periods of time
- Skin infections result in parts of body that sweat profusely, such as athlete’s foot or jock itch
Hyperhidrosis can be caused by a multitude of factors. It may begin due to a medical condition, as a side effect of food or medicine, or as a result of an accident. Many people who have this condition also have a family member who suffers similarly from the condition.
Hyperhidrosis therapy involves the application of a weak form of botox injections. These injections are used to interrupt the signal from the nerves that trigger excessive sweating. Our treatment is FDA approved for excessive underarm sweating, and successfully used off-label for other areas of the body such as the hands and feet. Treatment can last for 4-5 months and needs to be retreated when excessive sweating returns. Complimentary consultation is required prior to treatment.
