Skinworks: The Art of Beautiful Medicine

Neurotoxins

Botox is remarkably effective for eliminating deep grooves, furrows and wrinkles and helps restore a soft, natural and relaxed appearance. It also stops excessive sweating and muscle spasms and can effectively control migraine and tension headaches. All Skinworks Botox treatments are administered by Dr. Jang, an expert in the field.She has been using Botox for her patients every since it was approved for cosmetic and theraputic purposes Dr. Jang has both the experience and expertise to customize your treatments, minimize side effects, and provide a long-lasting, natural looking result.

How it works

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults younger than 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into the area around the side of the eyes to improve the look of moderate to severe crow’s feet lines in adults for a short period of time (temporary).

Botox also effectively treats Hyperhidrosis, with results lasting up to eight to twelve months. Sweating is a normal process that maintains body temperature by eliminating excess body heat. Hyperhidrosis, or Excessive Sweating, is sweating beyond what is necessary to maintain normal body temperature. Sweaty palms, feet, or armpits may increase anxiety and stress in both occupational and social situations. Hyperhidrosis is a medical problem that can be effectively treated by the injection of Botox directly into sweat glands, which will temporarily reduce or eliminate sweat production in treated areas.

Recovery

Discomfort is limited to the few seconds needed for each injection. You may experience minor bruising and a light headache on the day of treatment, but you will be able to return to work that day.

Results

The positive effects of Botox start to show within a week of treatment and last for months.

Risks

BOTOX® Cosmetic may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening. Call your doctor or get medical help right away if you have any of these problems any time (hours to weeks) after injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic:

  • Problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing, due to weakening of associated muscles, can be severe and result in loss of life. You are at the highest risk if these problems are pre-existing before injection. Swallowing problems may last for several months
  • Spread of toxin effects. The effect of botulinum toxin may affect areas away from the injection site and cause serious symptoms including: loss of strength and all-over muscle weakness, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice (dysphonia), trouble saying words clearly (dysarthria), loss of bladder control, trouble breathing, trouble swallowing.
