- Posted on: Jul 15 2021
Botox is the most common non-surgical treatment to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the upper part of the face. But how much do you know about Botox Cosmetic injectables? Read on for some frequently asked questions.
What is Botox?
Botox is the first and only FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet in adults.
How does it work?
Botox injections target dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles that appear in the upper third of the face and caused by repeated muscle contractions when you frown, smile, squint or even raise your eyebrows. Botox temporarily smooths out frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet, which are the lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
How long is treatment?
Treatment usually takes no more than 15 minutes or so after a thorough consultation to determine how much you would need and if you are a good candidate for the procedure. It’s often a lunchtime treatment that patients enjoy because of the convenience.
Is it painful?
Some people report feeling a slight pinch, but Botox is generally not a painful procedure.
Will there be any downtime needed?
No. What’s great about Botox is you can return to your regular schedule after you leave the office.
When will I see results?
You will see results within 1-2 days after treatment, with full results in about 30 days. Results last for 3-4 months, at which time you may need to return for additional treatment to prolong results.
Will I look natural, or will people notice I’ve had something done?
The beautiful thing about Botox is that you will look like yourself, but with less noticeable lines and wrinkles. Be sure to go to someone who is licensed and trained and a medical expert in the field.
