What is Botox?
Botox is an injectable that contains Botulinum toxin A, a bacterium that temporarily blocks nerve signals in the muscles. Over time facial movements from smiling, frowning, squinting, and pursing your lips cause wrinkles to form as you get older. Botox relaxes muscles, which smooths out skin to combat the signs of aging.
Botox, Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau® are just a few of the neuromodulators currently available. These neuromodulators all use Botulinum toxin to reduce wrinkles, but they differ in terms of when they start acting, how long they last, and the size of the area they affect. Our master injector Jennet McLane will evaluate your skin and determine the best injectable for your skin goals.
You won’t have any problems switching between brands if you’ve used a different injectable before.
What areas Botox can address?
Botox targets areas of the face you move most often when making facial expressions. It can address a wide variety of common signs of aging. Here are some of the areas Botox can address:
- Frown lines: Vertical creases that develop between the brows and can give you a tired, worn out or angry appearance
- Forehead lines: Also called worry lines, these horizontal wrinkles that appear on the forehead can make you look older
- Nose wrinkles: Commonly called “bunny lines”; Botox can address creases that commonly appear at the top of the nose
- Lines around the eyes: Crow’s-feet are fine lines and wrinkles that develop on the outer corners of the eyes
- Marionette lines: Creases or folds that appear on the outer corners of the mouth
- Lipstick lines: Tiny vertical lines that form on the lips
Botox can also address your jawline, which tends to appear less defined as you age. Botox can help you get a more defined look by relaxing the muscle around your jawline and narrowing the appearance of your jawline.
What results can you expect from Botox?
Patients should expect to see the results of Botox treatment in as little as 3-4 days after injection. However, the full results of this anti-aging treatment may take 10-14 days after treatment.
While Botox results vary from patient to patient depending on the area treated and the frequency of injections, you can expect your Botox to last 3-4 months.
