Botox is botulinum toxin type A that inhibits muscle action. Botox is a quick and minimally invasive procedure consisting of a few tiny injections directly into the muscle. Dr. Rocker will determine exactly where to administer these injections to achieve the best results for you. No anesthesia is required. The entire treatment takes approximately 10 minutes, and there is no downtime. Discomfort is minimal and brief. The effects are localized and, when administered by an experienced physician, do not affect your ability to smile, laugh, or otherwise show expression.
