What is Botox used for?

Botox is most commonly used for patients who are searching for a way to revitalize their appearance, prevent future signs of aging, and achieve a natural, youthful look. In contrast to more invasive plastic surgery procedures, Botox is a popular non-surgical option that provides highly effective results and requires little to no recovery time. Its most often used to treat signs of aging between the brow, as well as crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes) and forehead lines.

Is Botox right for me?

Because Botox is a very versatile, non-invasive treatment option, it is an excellent fit for a wide variety of patients. If you are interested in improving the appearance of fine lines, facial creases, and wrinkles, Botox may help. Our patients typically find that Botox is a highly effective option for treating the following signs of aging:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines

If you’re unsure if Botox is a good fit for you, we are happy to provide a private consultation to discuss your best options.

Can Botox prevent wrinkles?

In addition to treating currently existing wrinkles and lines, Botox offers a proactive method for dramatically reducing future signs of aging. Because Botox prevents the contraction of certain muscles, it prevents the formation of new wrinkles, creases, and lines. As a result, Botox virtually pauses the aging process and preserves your fresh-faced, youthful appearance.

What does Botox do to the skin?

Botox treatment works by blocking signals sent from the facial nerves to the muscles, preventing the treated muscle from contracting. As a result, wrinkles are naturally relaxed and softened, and further development of wrinkles is halted.

What is the process for Botox?

One of the reasons Botox injections have become such a popular anti-aging treatment is because it involves a very simple, quick procedure. There is no anesthesia or surgical intervention required, and many patients find they can even complete the procedure during their lunch break.

Using a fine needle, the doctor will inject a precise amount of Botox into the muscles related to the target treatment area. You’ll feel only very minor discomfort, with many patients reporting a nearly painless experience. The doctor will complete the series of injections according to your treatment goals, with the entire procedure taking just minutes.

How should I prepare for Botox treatment?

Because Botox is such a minimally-invasive process, patients do not need to make extensive preparations. It’s recommended that you avoid alcohol for one week prior to your treatment, and stop taking aspirin and other anti-inflammatories for two weeks prior to minimize bruising.

What is the recovery process for Botox?

Botox is a non-invasive procedure, so recovery is minimal. We recommend that you avoid exercise for 24 hours and remain in an upright position for 4 hours following the treatment. Try to refrain from using any harsh skin products on the injection sites. Some patients may notice temporary bruising, which will typically fade quickly.

Can I get more than one Botox treatment?

Yes. The effects of Botox typically last up to four months; so many patients choose to schedule treatments regularly to maintain their youthful look. It’s ideal that you set up a regular treatment schedule for optimal results, in order to prevent the muscles from regaining full movement and potentially deepening existing wrinkles or creating new ones.
