Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that temporarily reduces the appearance of moderate to severe forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. It’s also the most popular nonsurgical aesthetic treatment in the world. 

Many men and women aren’t aware that Botox has been in use in medical applications for more than half a century. As an aesthetic treatment, Botox is backed by more than 15 years of clinical studies, and is currently in use in 96 countries around the world. 

How does Botox work?

Botox is a neurotoxin, and works by temporarily inhibiting movement of certain facial muscles. You may have heard that Botox works by “paralyzing” the muscles in your face. That’s not quite accurate; while targeted facial muscles won’t be able to go through their full range of motion, you’ll still be able to perform normal facial movements and express emotion. 

The muscles treated with Botox won’t be able to tug and pull your skin into wrinkles, lines, and folds. That’s what creates a smoother, more youthful appearance. Results are definitely noticeable, yet also natural-looking.

Botox is administered in a series of injections. A very thin needle is used, and the process is painless. You might feel a brief pinch as the needle enters your skin, but there is no lasting discomfort. There is also no need for anesthesia or advance preparation. 

How long do the results of Botox last?

After your injections, you’ll begin to notice the difference within 24-48 hours, although it can take 3-10 days for the full effects to develop. You can expect your results to last around four months. 

At that point, you’ll begin to notice your lines and wrinkles gradually returning. One of the best things about Botox is the fact that the results are temporary. That gives you the chance to evaluate how the treatment works for you and decide if you’d like to continue with another round of treatment.
