What is Botox?
Botox is an FDA-approved injectable protein that binds to muscle tissue, temporarily blocking the neurotransmitters that cause muscle activity. In this way, the Botox reduces the intensity of the muscle contractions, calming them so they’re not as powerful. This means that the skin overlying those muscles won’t crease as much or as often, and so the skin relaxes and smooths out. You get a more refreshed look as the fine lines or wrinkles diminish. If used in the forehead, brow, temples, or jaw muscles, Botox will also alleviate headaches and migraines because now those muscles aren’t able to contract as hard. Additionally, if you have very strong and prominent jaw muscles contributing to a square jaw shape, the Botox can thin those muscles and lend a slimmer appearance.
What does Botox treatment entail and what can I expect?
Botox injections are quick, safe, painless and easy. The procedure involves discussing treatment goals, and we perform a facial analysis to assess the specific sites and proper dosage for each patient. We always take a few photos so we can compare the before-and-after results. Then we simply cleanse the areas with alcohol, gently demarcate the areas to treat, and proceed with the quick and shallow Botox injections.
The full effect takes up to 14 days to reach maximum potential, so you won’t notice the changes overnight. The recovery time is extremely minimal and simple.
We recommend a follow up appointment with patients at 10-14 days post treatment to evaluate results. At this time, we can administer more Botox if necessary to achieve our desired goals.
The effects of Botox are temporary, and we always wait minimum 3 months between treatments. Some patients choose to wait 6 or even 9 months between treatments. We can tailor your treatment and dosage to fit your needs and goals.
