FDA-approved Botox gets its power from a safe neuroprotein known as botulinum toxin type A (it sounds scary, but it’s really not!). This protein works to interrupt the signals between the brain and the nerve endings at the injection site. Because the nerves aren’t getting signals from the brain, that means they’re more relaxed – causing the skin above them to look smoother.

Botox is excellent at treating the wrinkles and creases that often develop as a result of unconscious squinting, frowning, and other tiny micro expressions we make hundreds of times each day.

Botox is FDA-approved for the treatment of forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet.

Am I a Good Candidate for Botox?

How Long Will My Botox Results Last?

If this is your first time trying Botox, you can usually expect your Botox results to last anywhere from three to four months.

If, however, you’ve been getting Botox for awhile now, you may find that your results last a little longer – usually about four to six months! That’s because Botox can have an accumulative effect, meaning seasoned Botox users may enjoy their results for longer.
