WHAT IS BOTOX® ?

BOTOX® has many uses. While Botox, like Xeomin and Dysport, are commonly used to rejuvenate facial features, they are also used to treat muscle spasms, stiffness, TMJ, and excessive sweating.

These medications provide a temporary result and treatment must be repeated at various intervals to maintain the result or effect. Botulinum injections work by blocking muscular nerve signals. This in turn weakens muscle contraction and results in a more relaxed, youthful look. Patients most benefit from this when treating wrinkles and creases, whether from aging or other causes.

These can form from practically any facial movement, including frowning, squinting, raising eyebrows, and even smiling, but the severity of the wrinkle will vary from person to person. By utilizing botulinum injections, patients can address these with minimal invasiveness and vastly improve their appearance.

Botox® Cosmetic — Smoothing Frown Lines

As the skin ages, wrinkles can develop for several reasons. Commonly on the forehead, and the 11s (those vertical lines between your brows), this is due to repeated muscle contraction. After several years, the lines can remain, even when your muscles are at rest.

What can you expect?

A doctor usually performs Botox injections in the doctor’s office or a clinic. Your appointment should last less than 15 minutes. Your doctor may use a cold pack or anesthetic cream to numb the areas to be injected. A tiny needle will be used to inject the Botox into the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. The number of injections you receive will depend on the severity of your wrinkles and their location on your face.

There is no recovery time with Botox injections. You can return to your normal activities right away. Avoid rubbing the areas that were injected as it could cause the botulinum toxin to migrate to other areas of your face, causing temporary facial weakness or drooping. Slight bruising may occur at the injection sites. Most people see results within a few days, but it may take up to a week to see the full effect. Botox usually lasts about three to four months. More injections are necessary to maintain your results.

Botox Frequently Asked Questions

As we age, wrinkles and fine lines begin to become more apparent due to repeated everyday facial expressions, such as squinting, laughing, smiling, or frowning. One of the best ways to reduce these fine lines and wrinkles is with Botox injections. With Botox being so popular, it also has a lot of misconceptions. Here are the ten most frequently asked questions answered about this wonderful treatment that will give you younger, more refreshed skin.

What is Botox?

Botox is a treatment used cosmetically to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles temporarily. Botox is a neurotoxin, botulinum toxin, derived from a bacterium known as Clostridium botulinum. When injected this toxin temporarily inhibits underlying muscles from contracting and reduces the appearance of crow’s feet and frown lines. Botox is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries due to the safety and quality of the product. Over 10 million vials have been sold in the U.S. alone. There is no “generic” form of Botox because there is no equivalent product with the same approved formulation, potency, and dose of this greatly refined toxin.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox is effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines because it aims to treat the underlying cause, the repetitive contraction of the facial muscles i.e. frowning or squinting. Botox will be injected into these muscles causing movement to be temporarily inhibited. This is because the botulinum toxin stops nerve signals from getting to the muscles. When making a facial expression, nerves release a neurotransmitter to the muscles. This neurotransmitter causes the muscle to contract by attaching to the receptors on the muscle’s cells. The botulinum toxin prevents the neurotransmitter from being released, therefore preventing the muscle from contracting. Stopping muscle contractions will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

The results of Botox may begin to appear within the first twenty four to forty eight hours. Full results will gradually appear within a few days to a week of receiving initial injections. It is common for a second or third round of touch up injections to be needed in order for the muscles to be completely relaxed and provide the maximum results.

How Long Does Botox Last?

The full effects of Botox injections can last for up to four months. This amount of time is usually extended the more you receive Botox injections. This is because once the muscles are prevented from contracting and are relaxed it typically takes less for the muscles to sustain that relaxed state. Once the Botox wears off the muscle movement will return to normal.

Will My Results Look Artificial?

This is a very common question when talking about Botox injections. As long as you have the Botox injections done at a reputable practice, you should not look artificial or frozen in any way. Proper techniques must be practiced when providing this treatment and that is why it is important to seek the care of a licensed and trained specialist. When done correctly, it is impossible to tell that any work has been done and the patient is still able to show expression on their face. The only thing people should notice about your face is that you look younger and more refreshed. The key to a successful Botox treatment is a qualified and skilled professional that tailors their technique to each patient’s unique facial features.

What is The Recovery Process Like?

Botox injections are such an appealing treatment because of how quick the procedure and recovery is. Once injections are completed, normal activity can be resumed. There is little interruption in your usual daily activities but aftercare instructions, given by your specialists, should be followed.

What Are The Possible Side Effects?

Although Botox injections are considered very safe, they still may have side effects. Possible but uncommon side effects are eyelid drooping and swelling. Other potential side effects include pain or discomfort at the injection site, bruising, dry mouth, headache, and neck pain. There is also a possibility of eye complications such as blurred vision, dry eyes, decreased eyesight, and double vision. Some patients may experience an allergic reaction. Other possible side effects can be discussed with your specialist. When Botox is injected correctly, any cosmetic side effects of appearing artificial, frozen, or a feeling of heaviness in the injected area is almost nonexistent.

Is Botox Only For Women?

Although it may seem that most patients that receive cosmetic treatments are female, this does not mean that men do not desire to have a younger appearance as well. In the clinical studies for Botox men were included in both the treatment of frown lines and crow’s feet. Botox has been performed on over one million men in the United States. This is because of the fast and natural results that can be achieved when injections are performed by a qualified specialist. The younger and more refreshed results that Botox provides is not exclusively for women.

What Costs Can I Expect With Botox?

When receiving a quote for the price of Botox injections, you must be aware that this is not only the price of the product but also the special skills of the professional that will be giving you your treatment. It is essential to have your treatments performed by a licensed and experienced professional to ensure the best results. Successful Botox injections will be administered by a health care professional who will take the time to evaluate your unique facial features, listen to your goals, and create a course of treatment that will be best for you. Remember, any deal that sounds too good to be true probably is.
