BOTOX® Cosmetic

Aging happens to everyone. Over time, our facial muscles contract countless times, producing unwelcome wrinkles and creases.

BOTOX® Cosmetic smooths the appearance of wrinkles and creases by relaxing specific facial muscles with no surgery and no downtime.

Learn how Dr. David Sherris and the team at the Clinic of Facial Plastic Surgery in Buffalo, NY, can make you look years younger.

Great Results
with No Surgery


Many patients are interested in cosmetic rejuvenation but aren't ready for a surgical procedure such as a facelift or blepharoplasty. For these patients, we recommend BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments. These treatments are gently injected into targeted areas, and are great for treating forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown lines. The noninvasive procedures require minimal downtime, and in some cases, results are immediate.

"Only one word comes to mind: Stellar" Buffalo, NY, Patients Appreciate Their Care

Only one word comes to mind: Stellar. Dr. Sherris and his staff are highly experienced professionals who take their work very seriously. I underwent a septorhinoplasty in December after seeing Dr. Sherris periodically for a couple years. I broke my nose when I was younger and needed extensive revisionary work to improve functionality and appearance.

The Secret to Beautiful BOTOX®

BOTOX® needs a steady, subtle hand to make it look its best. Less is often more, so you will want to choose a doctor who takes a lighter approach.

A minimal touch gives the results a chance to shine without being obvious. It also lets you retain some motion in your face so that you look natural as you talk, laugh, and smile.

When you visit Dr. Sherris for botulinum toxin treatment, he can make you look like a more refreshed, younger version of yourself with a conservative amount of product. He's happy to explain his effective approach during your consultation.

You'll Look Like the Best Version of You This Patient Keeps Returning to Our Office for a Reason

Courtney chose Dr. David A. Sherris for her facial plastic surgery needs, including BOTOX® injections. When selecting a plastic surgeon, choosing a doctor who specializes in the procedure is important. Rather than going to a general plastic surgeon, select Dr. Sherris, a specialist in facial plastic surgery and BOTOX®. 
In this plastic surgery testimonial, Courtney describes the results Dr. Sherris helped her achieve. Dr. Sherris is a top-rated facial plastic surgeon who has received numerous awards. Each year, he is voted one of the "Best Doctors in America."

What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Approved by the FDA, BOTOX® Cosmetic is usually recommended to eliminate frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead wrinkles almost immediately. It is the most common cosmetic procedure in the United States and rarely has harmful side effects.

"BOTOX®" is a brand name for botulinum toxin, which works as a muscle relaxer. When injected by a trained professional in small, controlled amounts, botulinum toxin prevents muscles in the face from contracting, causing wrinkles to soften. Other botulinum toxin injectables include Dysport® and Xeomin®.

The results of BOTOX® therapy can be dramatic. Many patients notice significant changes in their appearance, especially those whose furrowed brows caused them to appear angry, sad, or tired. BOTOX® therapy can be performed in a matter of minutes, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. The effects of BOTOX® therapy can last for up to six months. 

BOTOX® Cosmetic with Dr. Sherris

Unlike other practices, where the doctor may delegate all injections to a nurse injector, most injectable treatments at the Clinic of Facial Plastic Surgery are performed by Dr. Sherris himself. He is double board-certified, a former chairman of the Facial Plastic Surgery Division of the Mayo Clinic, and recognized all over the world as an expert in cosmetic care. He takes personal pride in every procedure performed at the Clinic of Facial Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Sherris has written scientific articles about BOTOX® injections for some of the largest publications in his field, including Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and The Facial Plastic Surgery Journal. He even developed a method of using BOTOX® Cosmetic to improve wound healing, for which he won two research awards for the best paper of the year. These awards were given to him by the the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the largest organization of facial plastic surgeons in the world. He has also introduced a new form of BOTOX® therapy that improves the appearance of scars.

A Buffalo, NY, Patient Talks About Their Experience

"Dr. Sherris and his staff were easy to work with, truthful on outcomes and extremely supportive during the entire process, particularly in the early stages of healing.  I am fortunate in going to the best and have the results to prove it. Thank you for putting that "zip" into my aging but smiling face!" Christine Alsfordc

How Dr. Sherris Treats Patients With Non-Surgical Options

Dr. Sherris uses injectable treatments like fillers and botulinum toxin for subtle yet striking results. If you've ever wanted to pursue cosmetic refinement, some of the other fillers and injectables he features include Restylane®, Dysport®, and JUVÉDERM®.

Enjoy Beautiful Results With Minimal Effort

Lotions, facials, and endlessly trying new serums — it takes a lot of effort to keep your face free from fine lines. Still, there may be an easier way to prevent wrinkles. And, it requires much less time that you've usually been spending on your beauty routine.

Dr. Sherris can smooth your skin with effective, safe BOTOX®. The results last as long as six months — which means that you only will need treatment about twice a year.

Not to mention, those injections can take as little as ten minutes, making it easy for you to pop by on your lunch break. Recovery is simple too, with no downtime.

BOTOX® Treatment Timeline

"Many patients are so pleased with the results that they return to Dr. Sherris for continued cosmetic care and easy re-treatment."
"Many patients are so pleased with the results that they return to Dr. Sherris for continued cosmetic care and easy re-treatment."


During your consultation at our office in Buffalo, NY, mention all areas of concern, such as your forehead, crow's feet, or eyebrow furrows. Dr. Sherris can best determine which treatment you need. He will also ask about medical conditions and explain potential side effects. If BOTOX® therapy is the right choice for your cosmetic needs, he can locate the optimal injection sites.

Before Treatment

Before going in for your injection, you should avoid any blooding-thinning vitamins or anti-inflammatory medications, as these can make bleeding and bruising more likely.


Dr. Sherris will inject the BOTOX® Cosmetic using the smallest needle possible, which can considerably reduce any discomfort during your visit.

After Your Appointment

Although there is no required downtime after BOTOX® therapy, you should avoid strenuous exercise and placing pressure on the injection sites for 24 hours post-treatment.

Side effects are extremely rare, but patients should stay alert for unusually heavy bruising, headaches, or eyelid drooping.

Enjoy Your Results

Your wrinkles should be noticeably softened within a few days, and desired cosmetic results are usually achieved within two weeks. Results can last up to six months.

After that time, the muscles recover from the botulinum toxin and wrinkles slowly reappear. Many patients are so pleased with the results that they return to Dr. Sherris for continued cosmetic care and easy re-treatment.

What Are the Side Effects of BOTOX® Therapy?

The most common side effect caused by BOTOX® treatment is mild bruising around the injection site. Bruising may last for up to two weeks. In some cases, cosmetic treatments involving injections can cause mild headaches, but these usually resolve after a day. 

When administered in controlled amounts to the proper treatment areas, botulinum toxin is very safe. Any complications resulting from botulinum toxin itself are usually the fault of inexperienced physicians, so it's important to seek a reputable and experienced doctor like Dr. Sherris for your cosmetic care.

Understanding the Cost of BOTOX® Therapy


​BOTOX® is not covered by insurance, except in certain cases like chronic migraines where it is deemed essential to treat medical conditions. The cost of any procedure at The Clinic of Facial Plastic Surgery in Buffalo, NY, is determined by your specific cosmetic goals. Dr. Sherris and his team understand that cost can be a barrier to patients considering cosmetic treatment, so we accept financing options like CareCredit® and work with patients to stay on-budget.

Accompanying Surgeries

Dr. Sherris will never pressure a patient to add surgeries they don't request, but BOTOX® can't solve all facial concerns. If you're seeking changes beyond addressing fine lines and wrinkles, you may want to undergo other plastic surgeries to complement your BOTOX®. Here are a few popular services Dr. Sherris offers:


If loose skin and aging have caused your face to lose its definition and shape, you may achieve a more youthful look with a facelift. While BOTOX® can smooth out wrinkles, a surgical procedure like a facelift is necessary to tighten the skin.

Learn More About Facelifts


BOTOX® can help smooth wrinkles around the eye, such as crow's feet, but bags under the eyes and sagging eyelids would benefit from an eyelid procedure called blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty can help awaken your expression by tightening up the skin around the eyelids.

Brow Lift

Patients who wish to specifically address signs of aging on the upper half of their face can benefit from a brow or forehead lift. With a brow lift, the skin on the brow is lifted and repositioned, which in turn smooths the skin and restores the eye area to a more youthful appearance.

Do BOTOX® injections hurt?

No, botulinum toxin injections aren't painful. At most, you'll feel a brief, small pinch at the injection site. Our plastic surgeon has actually authored articles on BOTOX®, so he has working knowledge of injections, which means more skillful and comfortable application.

Is BOTOX® a filler?

No, it is not. BOTOX® is an injectable that uses safe botulium toxin to relax your muscles and prevent wrinkles from appearing on your facial skin. A similar example of this kind of treatment is Xeomin®. Fillers, meanwhile, are used to add volume to your skin. An example would be achieving fuller lips with Restylane®.

What happens if I stop BOTOX®?

It's perfectly safe to stop botulinum toxin treatment. The only change will be that you will no longer see the results of your injections. If you ever want to return for more injections, you're always welcome at our Buffalo office.
