Sherry Kitchell is amazing. -ST
I have been going to Haley Wood for a number of years now. She is very professional, skilled, and extremely knowledgeable. She knows me and my expectations, as well as my low threshold for pain. Every new procedure that comes out, I know I can ask her and she will know all about it and is able to discuss with me if it’s something that would benefit me for the results I hope for. She administers botox and filler for me regularly, and I know when I’m ready for a bigger undertaking, I can trust her to advise me accordingly. Knowledgeable, kind, sweet, and beautiful!

In your initial consultation, one of our qualified and skillfully trained Registered Nurses will evaluate your health, discuss your medical history and assess the contours of your face. They will then review your goals and make recommendations based on their evaluation. The techniques used in BOTOX® injection will be described in detail, and informational materials will be provided. Be sure to notify them of any medicine you are taking and if you have any allergies, active skin issues or illnesses that affect your nerves and muscles.
What to expect
In most cases, the procedure will typically take about 15 to 30 minutes.
During the Procedure
Generally, no anesthesia is required in BOTOX® injections, although sometimes topical anesthetic cream will be used to numb the area. You will be asked to move certain facial muscles in order to determine the best points to inject BOTOX®. The substance will be injected directly into the muscles at several points in the area to be treated.
After the procedure, you are free to continue with your normal activities. Occasionally, some patients may experience slight discomfort, redness or bruising at the injection site. Generally, follow-up treatments will be required every three to four months.
