Botox is one of the most common cosmetic treatments performed each year and is widely regarded for its fast and effective results. Botox is best known for its ability to prevent and/or minimize the appearance of frown lines, or glabellar lines.
The neurotoxin in Botox, botulinum toxin type A, resolves the unwanted effects of hyperactive muscles by preventing them from contracting. Muscles contract in response to nerve signals, so Botox works by blocking these communications and holding muscles in a temporary state of inactivity.
The improvements patients see and feel after Botox injections can be attributed to Botox’s ability to keep treated face and neck muscles relaxed. For instance, facial muscles cannot pull the skin into furrows and creases, dynamic wrinkles are released, and patients appear more youthful. in Botox, botulinum toxin type A, resolves the unwanted effects of hyperactive muscles by preventing them from contracting.

Botox can be administered in as little as 15 minutes. To begin, our experienced injectors will listen to your concerns and carefully develop a treatment plan with Botox. Then, your treatment area will be cleansed to prepare it for the injections. The product is placed in the applicable muscles using a very fine needle. Some patients find the injection process uncomfortable, so we can supply a topical numbing cream.
Recovery from Botox requires minimal effort and no significant downtime. Some tenderness or tightness in the treated area may occur for a brief period after the injection session.
To ensure that the injected Botox does not migrate and that it remains where the provider intended, it is important that you stay in an upright position for the first four hours after your procedure. Additionally, take care not to apply pressure to the treated area, and do not massage it. Vigorous physical activity should be postponed until 24 hours after your injections, as well.
Allow 1-2 weeks for your Botox results to fully emerge. At this time, you can return for extra units as needed. The timeline for seeing Botox results varies based on the individual and the condition being treated.
