Frequently Asked Questions
What is Botox used for?
BOTOX and other neurotoxins can fade wrinkles to rejuvenate your appearance. In addition to giving you a more youthful look, Botox can be used to reduce excessive sweating. By smoothing your skin, these products help you appear vibrant and refreshed. The following areas and concerns are commonly treated with BOTOX-type injectables:
• Horizontal forehead creases
• Vertical lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines, “elevens,” or “frown lines)
• Wrinkles around the eyes (“crow’s feet”)
• Above the lips (“lipstick lines” or “smoker’s lines”)
• Creases on the nose bridge (“bunny lines”)
• Prominent vertical neck bands
How does Botox work?
Treatments with BOTOX or a similar injectable neurotoxin are generally quick and comfortable. These products are administered below the surface of the skin using a very small needle. Once injected into the targeted muscle, the formula begins to relax it and temporarily reduce its movement.
Is Botox safe?
Botox is FDA approved and is relatively safe when performed by an experienced doctor
Are Botox injections painful? You may feel a mild pinching sensation during the injection process. You may choose to have a topical anesthetic applied to the treatment area, but many people find that this is unnecessary as the treatment is quite tolerable.
Can I go back to work after getting Botox?
Botox is a zero-downtime procedure and an ideal choice that can keep up with your busy lifestyle.
When will I see results?
Most patients begin to see noticeable results within several hours to several days, with the most noticeable change appearing after roughly two weeks.
