There’s no doubt that you’ve heard about BOTOX®. However, that doesn’t mean you fully understand the treatment or how it can benefit you. Below, we’ve answered some of the common questions that our patients have about the treatment that can help you decide whether this treatment could be right for you.
How Does It Work?
BOTOX® is able to block nerves from sending the signal to contract muscles. It is these kinds of repeated muscle contractions that are responsible for creating those lines and wrinkles on your face. BOTOX® is able to stop those contractions so that your skin and face is able to relax, which in turn will eliminate or fade your lines and wrinkles.
Is It Safe?
Yes, the treatment is completely safe and effective.
Will I Experience Discomfort During the Treatment?
You should not experience much discomfort during your BOTOX® treatment.
What Areas of the Face Can Be Treated?
BOTOX® can be used to treat various areas that are suffering from fine lines and wrinkles. It is able to be injected into the eye area (for crow’s feet), the forehead, and the region in between the eyebrows.
When Will I See Results?
You begin to see results within just days. Those results will only get better with time.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
One treatment can usually deliver the desired results. The results from BOTOX® are not permanent. You must come back for touch-up treatments as needed. With that being said, the results tend to last for months at a time.
Are There Side Effects?
There are no major side effects from BOTOX® treatment. However, please note that you may experience slight redness, which should fade away within hours.
Will There Be Any Downtime?
No, there is no downtime associated with BOTOX® treatment. You will be able to resume your normal activities or get back to work right away. However, you should avoid doing certain things, which we can tell you more about during your consultation.
Do I Make a Good Candidate?
Most likely, you make a good candidate for BOTOX®. However, you won’t know for sure until you consult with a professional.
