SHORT FOR BOTULINUM TOXIN

You've heard it. 

It's a household name.

You have misconceptions.

So let's clear that up.

It has been studied for nearly 40 years.  Initially used to weaken eye muscles to straighten vision, ophthalmologists noted that it was smoothing the surrounding eye area.  It is FDA-approved.  There are 5 major brands currently: Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, Daxxify, and Juveau.

It is not permanent, it wears off steadily over several months.  See more questions below!

when will I see results?

Initial results can be seen in 3-7 days, peak results in 10-14 days, and wears off steadily over the next 2-5 months.

does it hurt?

We use the tiniest insulin needles, so its akin to mini bee stings, and the bumps subside in 15-20 minutes.

Dr. Fortunato is so precise on every procedure she has performed on me. I trust her wholeheartedly! I have been getting Botox for 10 years from several different companies and she has given me the best results! I won’t go anywhere else! And she has the most amazing personality to boot!

For a male to have anything medically aesthetic done, this was a great experience. Any guys out there thinking that this is just for females, think again. My fivehead just became a forehead again. Thanks Dr. Fortunato! BroTox...

Dr Fortunato was amazing.  At age 60 I have never had Botox before but felt like I could use a little boost. Dr Fortunato came highly recommended. She was thorough and gentle. I was so pleased with what I had done and received many compliments. I will definitely be going back.
