Botox

Botox Before & Afters

Botox is used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and facial creases. Treatment is safe, effective, and minimally invasive. In 2002, Botox received FDA approval for cosmetic treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. In 2013, the FDA approved Botox for treatment of wrinkles around the corners of the eyes.

How it Works

How it Works

Botox is a toxin that blocks signals traveling from the nerves to the muscles. As a result, the injected muscle can’t contract and wrinkles relax and soften.

Botox is typically used to treat forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet (lines around the eye). Botox won’t minimize the appearance of wrinkles caused by sun damage

What to Expect

Woman showing results of Botox treatment
Botox injections typically take only a few minutes. A small needle will be used to inject Botox into specific muscles. Patients may experience minor discomfort, but shouldn’t feel any pain.
 
Botox typically takes seven to 14 days to take full effect. Patients should avoid drinking alcohol at least one week before the treatment and should also stop taking aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications two weeks before treatment to reduce the risk of bruising.
 
For 24 hours after treatment, patients should avoid rubbing the injection site to prevent Botox from spreading to another area. Some patients may be advised to stay upright for four hours after the injections and to take a day off from exercising.  
Frequently Asked Questions
When will I see results?
The effects from Botox typically last three to six months. Over time, muscle action returns and the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear. At this point, patients will need additional Botox injections. Over time, facial lines and wrinkles appear less severe because the muscles are shrinking.
Are there side effects?
Though treatment with Botox is safe, patients may experience temporary side effects. These could include bruising, headaches (that resolve within 24 to 48 hours), eyelid drooping (that resolves within three weeks), crooked smile or drooling, eye dryness, severe treating, mild pain or swelling at the injection site, numbness, and weakness in nearby muscles.
Who Is A Candidate For Botox?
Cosmetic Botox treatment is for adults ages 21 and up who are in good health. Treatment isn’t recommended for women who are pregnant and/or breastfeeding. Individuals with an allergy to cow’s milk protein or a neurological disease shouldn’t use Botox. Because Botox doesn't work for all wrinkles, patients should speak to their physician or aesthetician to find out if it is right for them.
