BOTOX Injections at Crabtree Plastic Surgery


If you’re plagued by lines around your eyes and forehead, Botox injections can help. These popular, convenient, and proven injectable wrinkle treatment helps your facial muscles relax, smoothing expression lines and helping you look younger, better rested, and more approachable.


How Botox help reduce frown lines, crow’s feet & much more

We all make habitual facial expressions without realizing it—squinting, furrowing the brow, or scrunching our eyelids together. When we’re younger, our skin is firm and elastic enough to bounce back. But over time, as skin loses elasticity (and we’ve been scrunching our brow for that many more years), these wrinkles tend to stick around.


Botox works by blocking nerve impulses to specific muscles in the face, causing them to relax and keeping us from making subconscious contractions. As a result, wrinkles soften and we look younger and better refreshed. Botox can treat the following areas:


  • Frown lines (glabellar lines)
  • Crow’s feet (peri-orbital lines)
  • Forehead creases
  • Chin
  • Smoker’s lip lines
  • Downturned corners of the mouth

How long does Botox last?

Results typically last between 3-6 months after treatment.


How can I be sure my results will look natural?

Botox does the work, but the provider gets the great results. Not everyone offering BOTOX has the same level of training and skill. It’s not enough to know how to administer the injections; a provider needs to have extensive knowledge of facial anatomy so he can safely place the exact amount of product in exactly the right locations to achieve effective wrinkle reduction without the dreaded “frozen face.”


Dr. Crabtree has undergone specific training and has extensive experience performing injections with skill and artistry. He’s helped hundreds of men and women of all ages and skin types refresh their appearance ensures your treatment plan will give you the best possible outcome. You’ll be able to make normal facial expressions, and you won’t have to worry about anyone thinking, “she/he had BOTOX.”

What to expect with your Crabtree Plastic Surgery Botox treatment

After discussing your goals and evaluating your area of concern with Dr. Crabtree, he will inject the Botox into the appropriate muscles. Expect 2 or more injections, depending on your goals, but don’t expect pain—most patients only feel a tiny crunch.


The entire appointment will last just 15 minutes.  We will even put on some cover up to hide any redness so you don’t have to worry about it showing.  To avoid any possibility of bruising or swelling you can avoid ibuprofen or NSAIDs the week before the injections.  You will also need to refrain from heavy exercise for the next 4-5 hours after treatment.
