What is Botox?
Botox is the brand name of the aesthetic version of botulinum toxin, a product very popular non-surgical treatment that blocks signals from the muscles that cause facial lines and wrinkles. Xeomin and Dysport are other brands of Botulinum Toxin. This product prevents those targeted muscles from contracting and forming lines in the face. Facial lines that can be treated include the vertical lines between the eyebrows and horizontal lines just above the nose, lines across the forehead, and wrinkles next to the eyes (“crow’s feet”). Thick neck bands can at times be improved. These lines and creases are then softened or can even temporarily completely disappear.
individual results may vary
How does Botox Work?
Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport work by blocking the signal from the nerves to the muscles where they are injected, temporarily relaxing the wrinkle-causing muscles. This improvement in wrinkling gives the face a much more youthful appearance. Treatment of wrinkles with Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport is a simple, rapid procedure than is performed in the office resulting in very little to no downtime for you. Most sessions take less than 20 minutes to perform and you go home the same day. Patients typically see results within 3-7 days. Avoidance of strenuous activity for 24 hours is recommended.
Benefits of using Botox
Botox began as a treatment option for muscle spasms, before morphing into a popular cosmetic procedure intended to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 7,437,378 botulinum toxin procedures were done in 2018, and that number is growing every year. Botox is a treatment option that is easily accessible and delivers predictable results. Botox injections can help you retain a more youthful appearance.
How long will Botox results last?
The relaxing effect of these toxins lasts about 6 months. Because the injections are so quick and convenient, our patients find it easy to schedule regular Botox appointments.
Is Botox safe?
Botox injections have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cosmetic use since April 2002. It has been approved for the treatment of several medical conditions since 1989. The FDA considers a Botox®, Xeomin®, or Dysport™ injection a medical procedure that should be performed in a controlled medical environment. Side effects are minimal and typically include soreness at the injection site or weakness from the surrounding muscles. You may also experience numbness or a slight headache immediately after. These are both temporary and usually resolve themselves within a few days.
