BOTOXCosmetic® (also known simply as Botox) is a safe, easy way to smooth the lines and wrinkles on your face without surgery. It has been used to help millions of patients and is now the most common cosmetic procedure performed in America. With the help of Botox, crow’s feet, frown lines and lines across your forehead can disappear with one quick treatment. Botox can also be used to help you in other amazing ways, including raising your eyebrows, lifting the corners of your mouth and getting rid of bands in your neck.
How does Botox work?
The wrinkles that you get from smiling, frowning or raising your eyebrows occur when the facial muscles move, bunching up the overlying skin. As a muscle relaxer, Botox works by temporarily reducing the signals sent by the nerves to the specific muscles being treated. Because these specific muscles don’t receive a message to contract, they stay relaxed, and the overlying skin doesn’t bunch up. This causes the wrinkles to fade away.
Botox is so safe and effective at temporarily relaxing small parts of muscles that it is now used for a long, growing list of medical conditions. It is truly a miracle drug!
What to expect
Botox treatments are fast and easy. In their offices, these treatments are always performed personally by Dr. Marc Cohen or Dr. Nancy Swartz, never a nurse or assistant.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Cohen or Dr. Swartz will talk to you about your concerns and your goals in order to develop a customized plan just for you.
Once this plan has been created, they will then administer the Botox with tiny needles. Most people are surprised by how simple and quick this treatment is. When you leave the office, no one can tell that you’ve just had the procedure done. The lines and wrinkles that were treated will gradually fade away within a few days.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Botox and how does it work?
Botox is a medication that is used to reduce wrinkles and give your face a natural, relaxed look. Botox treatments are non-surgical procedures that involve tiny injections administered by the doctor in the specific areas that are best for you. Many wrinkles are caused by the contraction of muscles. Botox treatments relax those muscles. You'll still have normal facial expression, however the wrinkles will be softened, because the muscle causing the wrinkle will now be relaxed. If done regularly, Botox even prevents wrinkles from forming or getting worse.
Are treatments painful?
Most patients have little or no discomfort from Botox treatments. Dr. Cohen and Dr. Swartz understand how important this is for their patients. They have developed a special technique to make Botox treatments more comfortable, and they use needles that are very tiny- much smaller than the needles used for the typical "shots" from a doctor. Some people are nervous about needles, and if you prefer, a numbing cream can be used on the area prior to the treatment. The treatment itself only takes a minute or so, and afterwards, there is no discomfort at all.
