How is Botox® Administered?

With age, expression lines begin to appear. These wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), between the eyes, and across the forehead happen because every time we make facial expressions, muscles under the skin pull it and make it crease. Botox® stops the creasing by preventing muscle movement.

How Does Botox® Work? 

Botox® contains botulinum toxin. This attaches to the nerves that tell muscles to contract and stops them from sending signals. As a result, injecting Botox® silences the nerve signals to the muscles in a targeted area. Without these signals, the muscle stops contracting and pulling on the skin. With the skin no longer being pulled into creases, it can relax and become smoother. Lines and wrinkles diminish or disappear, and your forehead or eye area looks more youthful. 

How is Botox® Administered?

Botox® is administered by injection. A highly trained injector will administer the Botox® at Physician Skin Solutions. Because Botox® can cause side effects if injected incorrectly, you should always have an experienced professional inject your Botox®.

What are the Benefits of Botox®?

The primary benefit of Botox® is getting rid of lines and wrinkles in the upper part of the face. Millions of people receive Botox® every year to treat these stubborn lines and wrinkles that seem to resist all attempts to remove them with at-home treatments. 

Another benefit of Botox® is how much younger and less self-conscious many people feel after receiving Botox®. Heavy forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet can give the impression that a person always looks tired or serious. Botox® can improve self-esteem by letting people show off a smoother, more expressive face.

What is the Difference Between Botox® and Dysport®

Botox® and Dysport® both contain the botulinum toxin. They work in the same way, but some people respond better to one than the other, and sometimes one works better for a certain application than another. We offer both in order to make sure people always have the best range of options available. 

How Long Does Botox® Last?

Botox® usually lasts about four months before the effects begin to wear off. If you do nothing, your muscles and nerves will return to normal, and so will your lines and wrinkles. If you choose to continue getting Botox®, ask about our rewards programs during your consultation to find out how you can make Botox® a regular part of your skincare routine. 

Is There Any Downtime With Botox®?

You should have no downtime with Botox®. You may have some soreness or swelling around the injection area, but this will go away within a few hours. You can go back to your normal activities, but avoid rubbing your face for the next few hours. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Botox®?

Almost anyone can receive Botox®. Safe enough for medical use, even in children, Botox® in the hands of an experienced professional can make dramatic changes for people in their 20’s and older who want to address expression lines and wrinkles.
