BOTOX® treatment is a revolutionary approach to reversing the effects of facial wrinkles. Crow’s feet, worry lines and unwanted facial wrinkles can all be a thing of the past under medically-trained authority, Debbie Cornelius, PA-C, regarded as St. Louis’ expert in Botox & laser treatments. 


1. Pre-Treatment Consultation

To better understand your overall health, we will evaluate your medical history prior to treatment. In addition, a complete examination of your face is made in order to decide the most effective injection sites. All issues and concerns will be discussed.

The areas that will be treated are marked and digital photographs are taken in order to determine the amount of improvement after treatment.

2. The BOTOX® Procedure

BOTOX® injections are performed without anesthesia because it is virtually painless. Only a very small sting is felt when the injections are made. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated two to three times per year to retain the effects. Research has suggested, however, that long term use of the injections leads to a longer duration of each treatment’s effect. Patients over the age of 65 may not experience as dramatic of results. Botox is only useful in treating expression lines and cannot be used to repair sagging skin or damage to the skin caused by aging.  We offer several laser treatments that pair well with Botox to address these other signs of aging.

3. Post-Treatment Information

After the treatment, patients may experience tiny bumps or slight bruising around the treated area that quickly fades. Normal activities can be performed immediately.  The Doctor or Physician Assistant will explain all risks associated at the time of your consultation. Botox takes up to two weeks to see the full effect, with results typically lasting 3 months.
