"[Dr.] Alex was my first and only Botox doctor and he was very good to let me know know it was OK and to not be nervous. He did a great job and my Botox has laster well over 3 months. And now I am hooked."

"I went to Dr. Alex's office for a Botox treatment, and I must say that from the moment I stepped into his office I felt not only welcomed but also that I have chosen the right place for me to get my first Botox treatment done. Most places will just do the treatment you're going there for, but Dr. Alex's office go way above and beyond expectations. I am recommending this office not only for the great service but also for the amazing customer service skills everyone showed during my visit there. Way to go, Dr. Alex and staff. Keep up the extraordinary work!"

What is Painless Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin?

By cooling the skin with a special machine for a few seconds before the treatment, the skin becomes numb and the treatment is painless. Why get Botox when you can get Painless Botox?
Why A E Skin?
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin is a medical procedure done by a certified medical professional. At A E Skin, all treatments are done by Dr. Alex himself, an expert in Botox and cosmetic medicine. At other offices a general medical doctor or some other specialist who does not focus on cosmetic medicine may perform the treatment; and yet at other offices nurses do the treatment. Don’t you want your treatment to be done by a doctor like Dr. Alex who has done hundreds of treatments and trained others on the technique? Patients get outstanding results as seen in the before and after gallery.
How do Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin work?
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin block nerve impulses to the muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes wrinkles to form with facial expressions such as frowning, smiling, or raising the eyebrows.
When will I see results from a Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin treatment?
Results are seen in three to seven days after a treatment with Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, with continued improvement for up to 30 days.
How long do Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin last?
Patients can expect visible results to last approximately three months to four months with Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin.
What will happen to the moderate to severe wrinkles if I choose not to continue treatments with Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin?
If you do not continue botox treatments, the moderate to severe wrinkles will gradually return to the way they looked before treatment.
Is treatment with Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin painful?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief with Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Dr. Alex uses a pain free technique by applying cold air to numb the skin prior to treatment. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Most patients are in and out of the office without downtime following a treatment.
Will I need an anesthetic?
The needle used for botox injections is very small and anesthesia is not used. Ice or cold air placed over the treatment areas after the treatment decreases the possibility of bruising.
Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscles that cause wrinkles are temporarily relaxed, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles.

Patients taking warfarin or coumadin should not be treated.
What should I do after a treatment with Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin?
