Botox Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily smooth moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines.
Repeated facial expressions mean repeated muscle contraction, which is one of the main factors that leads to prominent lines.
Botox Cosmetic temporarily reduces this muscle activity for noticeable smoothing of these lines. Botox is injected into the muscles that are expanding and contracting underneath the skin, making those lines visible on the outside of the skin.
For an aesthetically desirable result and to reduce potential complications, it may be recommended to treat multiple areas together. Results are different for each individual depending on their muscle strength, metabolism, and desired outcome.
Complimentary consultations are recommended to establish patient and provider expectations.
Frequently asked questions
How long does the procedure take?
The actual administration of Botox is quick, around 10-15 minutes once the patient/provider expectations are established. Many times the consultation takes longer than the actual procedure. Once your dosage has been established, a Botox treatment can easily be done over your lunch break!
Is there any “downtime” to expect?
Typically you can return to your normal daily routine after receiving Botox. We recommend that you refrain from touching the area treated, no special “facial exercises” are necessary. Remaining upright for at least 4 hours, and no vigorous workouts until the next day.
Does getting Botox hurt?
Many of our patients say “it feels like a little more than a pinch, but not as much as a bee sting”. Afterwards you may experience a dull, annoying headache, but nothing major. Bruising, unfortunately, is always a possibility whenever the skin is penetrated with a needle.
When will I notice the results?
Botox takes about 3-5 days to start kicking in, and could take up to 2 weeks to achieve full results. We recommend a complimentary 2 week follow up appointment for all of our new patients until adequate dosage has been established.
How long does Botox last?
Once your desired outcome and dosage has been established, Botox can last 3-5 months depending on the person. Everyone is different. Many things can become a factor in the longevity of your treatment.
Will I look overdone?
Not unless that is your desired outcome! We pride ourselves on being conservative and giving our patients a “natural look”. We want you to look refreshed!
