Anti- Aging Treatments
As a first step, at Glenmore Landing Vein Clinic, our physicians will ask some basic questions to ensure that you are a proper candidate for any of our Anti-Aging Treatments. Once this has been confirmed, one of our doctors will ask you to accentuate lines in the areas to be treated, by intentionally frowning, furrowing and raising your brows. During this time, she will deliver a series of minor injection through a very small needle. Each injection is methodically placed, based on your specific needs.
FACE FACTS: Facial Muscle Relaxers (BOTOX COSMETIC®) is not just for women. The same facial muscle relaxers that many women utilize to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, men can use as well. A consultation with one of our physicians will provide you with the best treatment plan that fits both your budget and your lifestyle.
During the 15- to 20-minute procedure, one of our skilled doctors will carefully administer injections to the desired areas. Our latest methods will have you looking fresher than ever!
Here is a partial list of beautiful results from this FDA-approved substance that’s been in regular use for 20 years:

It is recommended to discontinue aspirin, aspirin-like products, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, St. John’s Wort, high doses of Vitamin E, and alcohol for a few days before your treatment to minimize bruising and swelling.
Treated areas may be slightly swollen and red following the procedure, but these effects generally disappear within a few hours to a day. It is recommended that the patient return two weeks after treatment for a follow-up appointment to ensure that the results are optimal.
It is important that the amount of movement or sleeping on the area injected be minimized for the next 48-72 hours (e.g. minimize smoking and/or drinking from a straw, sleep on your back). Treated areas might feel numb, swollen, firm, or sore for a few days and may appear bruised.
- Cosmetic Injectable procedures may not be the correct course of treatment for everyone. Side-effects including serious-side effects have been associated with the use of Onabotulinum Toxin A. Patients are therefore recommended to discuss these and their personal medical history with their physician prior to beginning any Cosmetic Procedure at Glenmore Landing Vein Clinic.
