As you age, your skin naturally loses elasticity, causing lines to form around the eyes, forehead, mouth, and nose.
Dr. Stephanie Peng can reduce fine lines and wrinkles and help you look as young as you feel with BOTOX® Cosmetic.

So What Is BOTOX?
BOTOX is a prescription medicine made up of botulinum toxin. Botulinum toxin triggers a temporary paralysis in the muscles, blocking signals to the nerve cells and preventing muscle contraction. It is injected into different areas of the face, freezing the underlying muscles and causing wrinkles to soften over time.
While this may sound scary, BOTOX is FDA-approved, remarkably safe, and easy to apply.
Candidates for BOTOX
BOTOX is approved to address several problems including wrinkles, chronic migraines, and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in patients over the age of 18. However, it is important to review your medical history with our plastic surgeons to ensure there are no conditions that put you at higher risk for side effects.
During your consultation at our Minnetonka practice, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and determine whether botulinum toxin is the best option for you. Depending on the severity of your concerns and areas you wish to treat, we may recommend an alternative injectable known as Dysport® or dermal fillers to restore facial volume.
