Botox - Questions & Answers


What is a Botox procedure?
A Botox cosmetic procedure is actually the trade name of Botulinum Toxin Type A, a purified toxin produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum. Through its use, patients can alleviate fine lines, wrinkles, laugh lines and crow's feet on their face and neck. It is one of the most popular anti-aging solutions on the market today. Its results will last you several months!


How does it work?

Botox injections relax the muscles that create wrinkles thereby lessening the appearance of frown lines, laugh lines, wrinkles and crow's feet.


Who is a potential candidate?
Both men and women can benefit from BOTOX®. It is noted to be most beneficial on those patients 30-50 years of age, whose facial lines are due more to the underlying muscle pulling rather than dermal elasticity.


Can the procedure be performed in an office setting?
Yes.


How are long before I notice an improvement in facial lines?
The response can usually be visualized 3-7 days after injection.


How long will Botox treatments last?
Typically, the muscle action and wrinkles will return within 3-6 months, requiring subsequent injections. If you do not continue treatments, the frown lines between your brows will gradually look like they did before treatment.

How soon can I return to normal activities?
Immediately.


How will my skin look after Botox surgery?
You may have a little redness and swelling, as well as a minimal amount of bruising.


Are there any scars as a result of the procedure?
No.


Will I be able to make faces after treatment?
After treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic, you may look in the mirror and see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles between your brows. But BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance. You can still frown or look surprised—without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.


What complications may occur?
Although complications are rare, you may experience have an eye droop. For those getting their upper lip done, you will not being able to suck through a straw. All complications are temporary.
