Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved treatment that temporarily reduces lines and wrinkles in some of the most common areas of your face that show aging. It temporarily halts the activity of muscles that move repeatedly when you smile or frown, causing creases to form on your face. Botox is well-researched and proven safe for aesthetic and medical uses.

Where is Botox effective in reducing wrinkles?

Botox is effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles in areas that commonly show your age. These include:

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Vertical frown lines between the eyebrows

Botox delivers subtle results so you look younger, but still very much like you.

The providers can help you determine if Botox is the right treatment to help you achieve your goals. And Botox may be combined with other treatments, including dermal fillers, to get you the ultimate younger look you’re after. Discuss your appearance concerns and wishes with us to help you develop a customized treatment plan.

How long do the effects of Botox last?

You’ll notice the effects of Botox within 3-7 days of treatment. The results last 3-4 months, depending on how your body reacts to the treatment. You can repeat treatments on a regular basis to maintain your look.

Do Botox injections hurt?

Botox does involve needles, so you’ll feel a pinch during each injection. You may receive ice or a topical numbing cream if you’re concerned about the sensation. Each injection is quick, although you may receive about a dozen in total, depending on what areas you’re having treated. The total treatment time is about 15 minutes.

Do I need to schedule downtime following Botox injections?

You need no downtime following any aesthetic injections and can go right back to your daily activities following treatment, including work. You may have mild bruising or swelling at the injection sites, but this fades within a few days and can be covered by makeup.
