What is Botox for?
Botox cosmetic is used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles typically in the upper 1/3 of the face. Botox and it’s equivalents, Dysport® and Xeomin®, are all FDA approved, purified forms of botulinum toxin used in cosmetic settings to temporary treat overactive muscles that cause “dynamic” wrinkles.
Are the injections painful?
We use the smallest needles available to inject Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. These are the same type needles used for daily insulin injections and most clients say the treatments are very tolerable and we have several clever methods to help those who are anxious about the injections.
What Are The Possible Side Effects?
BOTOX injections are incredibly common and safe procedures. Depending on the injection site, cosmetic side effects may include eyelid drooping and swelling at the injection site.
How long will my results last?
Botox effectively relaxes the muscles responsible for wrinkles for at least 3 months. It varies how long it will take wrinkles to reappear, but it is usually between 3-5 months for most patients.
What is the ideal age to start treatments?
Although Botox Cosmetic is approved for adults over 18, we recommend treatments to begin when visible lines begin to appear even when muscles are relaxed.
Can I combine Botox and other dermal fillers or treatments?
Yes! You can safely combine your injectable treatments for convenience. Most individuals experience not only lines from overactive muscles but also volume loss as well as sun damage. Addressing all these factors of aging skin provide superior results! Many treatments such as chemical peels, certain laser and others can be followed with your Botox injections and many clients opt to have combination treatments at the same visit. Our expert injectors always provide consults to discuss the safest and most effective approach.
