Botox Q & A
What is Botox?
Botox® is an injectable treatment derived from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium that relaxes facial wrinkles for up to four months. If you want to smooth out current wrinkles and prevent future wrinkles, but you’re not interested in invasive treatments or surgery, Botox is an ideal option for you.
What kind of wrinkles does Botox treat?
Botox affects dynamic wrinkles, the ones that show up when you move your facial muscles. It doesn’t work on static wrinkles, the ones that happen because of age-related volume loss.
The best areas for Botox are in the upper third of your face, including:
- Eye wrinkles (crow’s feet)
- Frown lines (between your eyebrows)
- Forehead wrinkles
Botox can also help with other types of wrinkles, such as tiny smoker’s lines around the mouth. Your Associated Skin Care Specialists dermatologist discusses your specific wrinkles with you to help you decide whether Botox is right for you.
How does Botox treatment work?
Your dermatologist asks you to frown, raise your brows, and make other facial expressions to determine where to place the injections. The injections take only a few minutes. You may feel a quick pinch-like sensation, but most patients aren’t uncomfortable. If you need it, your dermatologist applies a numbing cream or uses ice packs to numb your skin before the injections.
Your dermatologist may apply an ice pack to your treatment site after your Botox injections to calm any irritation. You can go home as soon as your dermatologist finishes the injections, and there’s no downtime.
When will I see results from my Botox treatment?
You may notice your wrinkles smoothing out as soon as 24-48 hours after your treatment at Associated Skin Care Specialists. Although not instant, most patients get very fast results from Botox.
Will I look drastically different after Botox treatment?
When you get Botox injections from a highly experienced dermatologist like those at Associated Skin Care Specialists, you won’t look drastically different. You’ll look like yourself, just younger and with less obvious wrinkles.
The Associated Skin Care Specialists dermatologists know how to inject Botox in the precise patterns, and in the proper amounts, needed to control muscles without causing a frozen look.
