Botox Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox is a type of injectable cosmetic treatment. It falls into a class of injectables known as neuromodulators. They all contain a purified version of a Botulinum toxin. The product effectively smooths lines and wrinkles caused by expressions as it temporarily weakens treated muscles. 

Following Botox injections, wrinkles ease so you look less worried, younger, and refreshed.

What areas can Botox address?

Botox is FDA-approved to treat cosmetic concerns, including:

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Vertical lines between the eyes, known as frown lines
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes

Sometimes, Botox is used to ease the look of bunny line wrinkles on either side of the nose, smooth a cobblestone chin, and lessen the appearance of vertical neck cords. Your provider considers your cosmetic goals when determining where to use Botox. 

Is Botox safe?

Botox has proven safe and effective in more than 500 studies. The aesthetic treatment is approved for cosmetic use in more than 95 countries. Botox continues to be one of the most well-known cosmetic procedures in the United States because of its quality, quick effects, and predictable results. 

What is it like to get Botox injections?

Treatment with Botox takes just 20-30 minutes. Your provider first takes time to understand your cosmetic concerns and identify the best locations for the injections. 

Before you receive injections, your provider cleanses your skin and may mark the locations for injections. You feel a slight pinch with each injection, but most people tolerate the treatment well. 

Do I need to schedule downtime after Botox treatments?

You can go back to your daily activities after Botox injections. Many people schedule injections during their lunch period and head back to work right afterward. You may have some redness or minimal bruising at the injection sites, but these side effects can be easily covered with makeup.

When will I notice the effects of Botox injections?

The first results of Botox injections appear within 24-48 hours, but the most noticeable effects set in after about 7-10 days*. 

Botox effects often last about 3-4 months*. You’re welcome to schedule follow-up treatments to maintain your new, more youthful look.
