What is Botox®?

Botox® works by blocking nerve impulses that can temporarily reduce the movement of targeted muscles. When muscle movement is reduced in specific areas, frown lines and wrinkles begin to fade. This minimally invasive treatment is administered via small injections directly into the targeted muscles on an outpatient basis and requires no downtime.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
  • Is Botox right for me?


    It is best to schedule an appointment with our specialist to discuss the treatment options. Botox may not be right if you have had recent surgery to your face, have significant facial asymmetry, have an active infection or have very weak muscles near the treatment area.

  • How long does this treatment last?


    Patients can go 3 – 4 months between injections. This varies from patient to patient.

  • What happens after the treatment wears off?


    Lines and wrinkles will gradually reappear since the medication will wear off. A follow up treatment may be recommended as Botox is not permanent.

  • What are the areas Botox Cosmetic commonly injected?

    Botox Cosmetic is frequently used for forehead lines, crow’s feet, and eye brows.

  • Am I too young for Botox ?


    Patients as young as their early 20s have received Botox treatments. Schedule an appointment with our specialist to see if Botox is right for you.

  • Are Botox injections painful?


    Most patients do not experience pain, and typically compare the injections to a tiny mosquito bite.

  • Problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing, due to weakening of associated muscles, can be severe and result in loss of life. You are at the highest risk if these problems are pre-existing before injection. Swallowing problems may last for several months.

The effect of botulinum toxin may affect areas away from the injection site and cause serious symptoms including: loss of strength and all-over muscle weakness, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice, trouble saying words clearly, loss of bladder control, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.
