FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT EXACTLY IS BOTOX?®
BOTOX, also known as Botulinum Toxin Type A, is a prescription medicine that can be injected into muscles to improve the look of the wrinkles. Botox can ease expression marks, like frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), crows feet and forehead lines. In the main, it works by blocking nerve impulses that prevent muscle activity to form severe lines.
IS BOTOX SAFE?
Rest assured that Botox is one of the safest treatments available currently in the cosmetic industry. And the very few side effects known to the toxin are always minor and temporary.
ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS TO BOTOX?
All cosmetic procedures involve some sort of risk. Although rare and temporary, side effects associated with the Botox injection include localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and bleeding/bruising in the treated area.
IS BOTOX PAINFUL?
The Botox level of discomfort is usually minimal and very brief. Before the injection itself, your physician may offer to numb the area either with a cold pack or an anesthetic cream. But even if you decide to opt out, the entire procedure only takes a few minutes. Most patients are in and out of the office with no downtime.
HOW LONG WILL MY BOTOX TREATMENT LAST?
Unfortunately, your facial muscles will gradually return to their previous state within an average of 3 to 5 months after your Botox treatment, depending on individual body response. That happens because our bodies regenerate neuromuscular connections, and take up on muscle activity over time.
