Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a type of injectable medication created from a neurotoxin that exists naturally in soil, lakes, and forests. This substance can be deadly in certain volumes, but the concentration used in medical aesthetics is carefully controlled and perfectly safe. 

Botox was the first botulinum toxin medication to receive FDA-approval for medical aesthetics applications. It remains the most popular noninvasive, temporary treatment for reducing the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines. 

It’s important to understand that there is no generic form of Botox, so be wary of providers that offer discounted treatments. Having Botox administered by highly trained medical professionals reduces your risk of side effects like infection or abnormal results. It also ensures the product used is genuine and safe. 

How does Botox work?

Botox works by temporarily limiting the ability of treated facial muscles to go through their full range of motion. Once injected into targeted muscle tissue, those muscles won’t be able to pull and tug your skin into lines, folds, and wrinkles. 

In the hands of a skilled dermatologist, Botox delivers safe and effective results. You won’t have the abnormally “frozen” look once associated with injectables. Your results are subtle; friends and family will notice you look younger and well-rested, but you’ll never have an overly stretched or “done” appearance. 

How long will the results of my Botox treatment last?

It only takes a few moments for your dermatologist to administer Botox injections, and you can return to your normal routines immediately after your visit. Within 24-48 hours, you’ll see your lines and wrinkles smoothing out. 

You can expect those results to last around four months. You’ll see your lines and wrinkles slowly returning near the end of that timeframe. You can then decide if you’d like to schedule another round of injections to extend your results. 

One of the things people love about Botox is the fact that the results are temporary. This means if there are aspects of your results you’d like to alter, your practitioner can alter your treatment to customize your results. 

Botox offers a great way to turn back the hands of time, if only temporarily. If you’re ready to see what Botox can do for you, booking a visit is simple and straightforward online or over the phone.
