Botox Q & A
What is Botox?
Millions of people have turned to Botox to get rid of targeted wrinkles that form as a result of making repeated facial expressions over the years. With this trusted cosmetic injectable, you can smooth dynamic wrinkles, turning back the clock for your skin — and your overall appearance.
Botox is derived from botulinum toxin. Your provider injects an extremely small amount of Botox into targeted locations on your face. This relaxes the muscles responsible for your wrinkles; however, this may take a few days to take effect. This makes Botox a highly effective treatment for eliminating dynamic wrinkles.
What are dynamic wrinkles?
Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that form in places where your skin folds as you make repeated facial expressions. The most common dynamic wrinkles are:
- Frown lines, or the lines between your brows
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet, or the lines at the outside corners of your eyes
By injecting Botox into the muscle, it causes the muscles responsible for the lines for 3-6 months.
What should I expect during and after Botox treatment?
Botox is an extremely quick and convenient treatment. It typically takes just a few minutes, and you can resume your day immediately after.
Because the treatment is so fast, and your physician uses an extremely small needle, no anesthetic is needed during Botox procedures. Most patients report that getting Botox is relatively painless.
You may see some results right away, but it usually takes a few days to a week for the Botox to take full effect. You can expect your results from your Botox to last 3-6 months.
