Botox Q & A
What is Botox?
An injectable, prescription medication, Botox is made from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The team at Integrative Dermatology & Laser Spa injects Botox strategically into areas of your forehead and around the eyes to temporarily halt the muscle activity that causes wrinkling when you make expressions. You get a younger, softer look without looking as if you’ve had a cosmetic procedure done.
Is Botox safe?
Botox is well-studied, with more than 528 well-respected studies and medical articles supporting its safety and efficacy. The US FDA along with oversight agencies in more than 98 countries approve of its cosmetic use. Xeomin® is a similar wrinkle reducer also offered by the practice.
Botox requires no downtime following application. You can go back to work, chores, or exercise following your appointment.
Where is Botox effective in reducing wrinkles and lines?
Botox is proven effective and safe in treating:
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Horizontal forehead creases
- Worry lines between the eyebrows
The team at Integrative Dermatology & Laser Spa identifies the relevant muscles and applies just the right dose of Botox to soften the lines and wrinkles that form in these areas caused by years of smiling, frowning, and squinting. Botox injections may be combined with other cosmetic injectables to provide you with a total more youthful look that looks natural.
When will I notice the results from Botox and how long will they last?
You’ll notice that Botox treatments start to smooth fine lines and wrinkles within 24-48 hours of your initial injections. Optimal results settle in after about seven days. The effects of Botox last three to four months, after which you can elect to have additional treatments to maintain your look.
Do Botox treatments hurt?
The team does apply Botox with a needle, so you will feel a pinch and sometimes a little stinging during application. Most people manage quite well because the needles are fine and the session is quick. You may request topical numbing creams or ice prior to the injection if you’re worried about discomfort.
