The Plastic Surgery Group offers the following less invasive, injectable procedures in Indianapolis and Carmel.

Botox Cosmetic is a purified protein. Very low doses are administered through a few tiny injections directly into those muscles that are responsible for frown lines. Botox blocks the release of the chemical in the body that causes these muscles to contract and therefore enabling them to relax. This process makes the skin appear smoother and is available to men and women in Indianapolis and Carmel.
