BOTOX COSMETIC in North Alabama
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most well known non-surgical treatment for brow and facial rejuvenation. The treatment has proven to be an effective and safe way to reduce wrinkles, crow’s feet, and other signs of aging. Because of Dr. Ben Light’s skill and experience, he was invited to participate as a speaker and trainer for Allergan, Inc., the company that makes BOTOX Cosmetic. He has helped many patients in Decatur, Alabama and nearby areas enjoy a refreshed, revitalized appearance with this popular treatment.
The BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a minimally invasive treatment that can be performed in less than an hour. Although the treatment is straightforward and does not take long to complete, it’s important to receive BOTOX® Cosmetic from a qualified plastic surgeon with extensive knowledge of facial anatomy. Using a specialized needle, Dr. Light injects BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause wrinkles to appear on the brow, around the eyes, or at the base of the nose. The injections contain botulinum toxin type A, a compound that relaxes the muscles and helps smooth wrinkles.
Botox is one of our most popular cosmetic treatments. We use this exciting injectable to help men and women across the state enjoy a younger-looking facial appearance.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Benefits
The benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic include smoother, more youthful-looking skin. The treatment reduces the appearance of wrinkles, frown lines, and crows’ feet. Results may become readily apparent after one week and can continue to improve for up to one month. The benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic can possibly last for approximately four months, and treatment can be safely repeated to maintain results.
Another benefit of Botox is its ability to pair with other cosmetic treatments, including both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions:
How Much Does Botox Cost in Huntsville, Decatur and Madison, AL?
Botox is an affordable option for smoothing expression wrinkles on the face. Since it is non-surgical, it doesn’t require a trip to the operating room, making it less expensive than surgical treatments like a facelift or blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). Your treatment cost will depend on the amount of Botox needed and the number of areas where you’ll receive injections. We’ll provide a detailed estimate before your procedure.
Is Botox Painful?
Botox injections are not painful for most patients. We use a tiny needle and our skilled injectors know how to minimize discomfort. Topical numbing creams may be available if you’re concerned about pain during your procedure.
Can I Pair My Botox with Dermal Fillers?
Botox and dermal fillers make a perfect pair. We often pair our botulinum toxin treatments with injectable fillers like Juvéderm for a full rejuvenation.
Will I Need to Miss Work?
No downtime is necessary after Botox. Return to work immediately if desired. We are pleased to be a top provider in North Alabama.
Does Botox Treat Crow’s Feet?
Botox is a neuromodulator and works by interfering with the communication between nerves and facial muscles that cause wrinkling. We use it to treat many types of expression wrinkles including frown lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, and the parallel lines between the brows.
