What is Botox?

Botox is the world’s most popular nonsurgical treatment for temporarily reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It’s an outstanding treatment for men and women who want to achieve a more youthful and well-rested appearance without the risks and recovery time of plastic surgery.

Botox has a lengthy record of being a safe and effective treatment. Botox has an established safety track record in both medical and aesthetic applications and has been studied extensively in clinical trials.

The injectable medication works by temporarily impeding the treated muscle fibers from going through their full range of motion. Formulated from a substance called Clostridium botulinum, Botox creates effective and predictable results.

Botox is FDA-approved for use on crow’s feet, forehead, and frown lines. However, practitioners often use Botox off-label for other areas.

What happens during Botox treatment?

Having Botox injections is a fast and simple procedure. You can even come in on your lunch break or between errands to have your Botox injections placed.

There is no need for any type of anesthesia when getting Botox injections. Your practitioner simply places the injections in the treatment area. It takes several injections for each treatment area, but the entire process takes only minutes to complete and is mostly painless.

There is no significant pain, and you can even return to your normal routines immediately after your injections.

How long do results from Botox last?

It takes 24-48 hours for Botox to take effect. You can expect your results to last around four months, at which point your lines and wrinkles slowly begin returning.

You can then decide if you’d like to renew your results with another round of wrinkle reduction treatment. Let your practitioner know if you’d like to alter the effects, as minor adjustments can be made in the placement of injections or volume of Botox used.

Some people come in for Botox in preparation for a big event like a wedding or reunion. For others, routine Botox treatments are just part of their skincare and anti-aging routine.

Dysport® is another injectable medication made from the same substance as Botox. Ask your practitioner which anti-aging treatment is right for your needs.
