What Is Botox?

Botox is a safe injectable medicine that has been used since the 1970s. The FDA first approved it for ophthalmological use, and in the 1990s its use expanded to treat cosmetic concerns. Today, there are many applications in which Botox has a therapeutic effect, including treatment of migraines, strabismus(eye muscle problem), TMJ, excess sweating, and overactive bladder, as well as cosmetic benefits.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox reduces the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing the small muscles that cause wrinkles when they contract—as in frowning or squinting. This treatment cannot lead to addiction or permanent changes.

What Are The Benefits Of Botox?

Both women and men can benefit from Botox injections. For example, deep wrinkles between the eyebrows can lead to an “angry” look, which Botox treatment can soften. Someone with a habit of clenching their teeth may have fuller or sore muscles; Botox injections can reduce the resulting wider facial appearance. Often, people notice a “gummy smile” as the lip rises or a thinning of the upper lip as one ages, both of which can be improved with this treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions About Botox Injections

Does Botox hurt?

Due to the tiny, thin needles, there is minimal discomfort compared to typical injections. On occasion, anesthetics can be used but are rarely needed.

How long will it take to see my Botox results?

Botox takes a few days to work and 10-14 days for maximum results; its effects wear off in 3-4 months but can be repeated.

How different will I look after Botox?

Patients can elect to have a very natural or a more dramatic result. There is an art to administering Botox; part of this is understanding our patient’s goals. Therefore, in each case we develop a plan to tailor dosages before undertaking treatment to create the desired effect. We typically have the patient return after a couple of weeks to analyze results and to “touch up” as needed at no additional cost.

Who is an ideal candidate for Botox injections?

The ideal candidate for Botox can vary depending on the needs and goals of the patient. For those looking for preventative Botox, men and women in their early 20s or 30s are the ideal candidates to prevent fine lines and wrinkles. For those who require Botox for jaw pain, excessive sweating, gummy smiles, and other dental or medical reasons, there is no set age as to when you should receive Botox injections. Anyone looking to prevent signs of aging or achieving a particular look or goal is the ideal candidate for Botox injections.
