Often Botox® is confused with other types of office procedures like cosmetic fillers used to plump up lips, smile lines, or lost facial volume. But, Botox, a wrinkle reducer, is in a class by itself.

Botox is a purified protein that blocks the nerve transmission temporarily for a few months so that the wrinkles in the treated area start to become less apparent. If Botox is continued every three to four months, the wrinkles can even start to fade away.

Botox provides a quick, safe and proven way to drastically decrease facial wrinkles and lines. When we are young our skin springs back as we express ourselves, but as we get older wrinkles remain and become static, even when the face is at rest. The remaining lines, folds and wrinkles may make us look anxious, worried, tired or angry even when we are not.

Botox® is injected into the skin, relaxing wrinkle-causing muscles and creating a rejuvenated appearance. The results of treatments last three to four months, are visible within five days of treatment, and can be repeated effectively when the results eventually fade.

Our Evansville, Indiana Botox patients say they didn’t know they could have such dramatic results with such a quick treatment. They feel comfortable having their Botox® administered by Dr. Paik, Evansville’s premier facial plastic surgery specialist and member of American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
