Botox Q & A

What should I know about Botox?

Botox® is made from a purified neurotoxin and effectively smooths lines and wrinkles by temporarily halting muscle activity in treatment areas. When your provider injects Botox into specific facial muscles, it effectively eases the wrinkles caused by expressions like smiling or frowning. This causes your muscles to relax temporarily and diminish the wrinkles created by those muscles. 

What types of wrinkles does Botox treat?

At Medical Aesthetics & Laser, the team uses Botox to treat some of the most bothersome facial wrinkles, including: 

  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead furrows
  • Frown lines

Your provider targets specific muscles to diminish wrinkles, and your other facial muscles are left completely unaffected. This ensures your results look natural following your Botox treatment.

Most people bothered by the signs of aging in their upper face are good candidates for Botox. However, avoid Botox treatment if you’re pregnant or have certain neurological diseases.

What happens during Botox treatment?

Before injections, the team reviews your medical history and ensures you don’t have any medical conditions that could cause issues during or after your Botox injections.

During treatment, your provider uses an ultra-fine needle to inject precise doses of Botox into key areas that affect the appearance of wrinkles. Depending on the areas being treated, your provider typically administers between four and ten injections.

You might notice some mild redness or swelling in the treatment area, but this should fade soon. You can use makeup to cover up any of these short-term side effects. You can resume your normal daily activities right after your Botox treatment.

When will I notice the results of Botox, and how long do they last?

The wrinkle-smoothing results of Botox start to show up just 24-48 hours after your treatment. It may take up to 14 days to see the final result. 

The results of Botox usually last up to four months or longer. Your body metabolizes the medication over time, and the effect gradually wears off.

When your results fade, talk to the team about getting another Botox treatment so you maintain your smoother complexion and more youthful-looking appearance. Your provider will create a highly personalized treatment plan to get you closer to achieving your cosmetic goals.
