Botox causes a blockage of the neurotransmitter to the receptor of the muscle with resultant blockage and relaxation of the muscle and overlying wrinkles. The relaxation of the muscle also smooths out the persistent lines that had developed over time.

Commonly Asked Questions about Botox® Cosmetic Treatment
Where Is Botox® Cosmetic Used?
Botox is effective for wrinkles that are visible during facial movement, such as smiling, laughing, or raising the eyebrows. The wrinkles are less noticeable or disappear with the face is completely relaxed. Botox treat the wrinkles of the forehead, between the eyebrows (glabellar area), around and under the eyes (crow’s feet) and the bands of the neck.
Am I a good candidate?
The best candidates are patients who notice wrinkles during facial movements. The typical patients are between 25 to 65 years of age. Wrinkles that are present during complete facial relaxation are considered “static” and other procedures can be performed to correct the wrinkles. Since all patients have different needs, consultations are performed to plan the appropriate treatment plan.
How is Botox® Cosmetic Administrated?
A small amount of medication is administered by a small needle into the desired muscle. The sensation is compared to a pin stick that resolves once the needle is removed. Since no sedation or local anesthesia is necessary, one can resume regular activity immediately after treatment.
When will I notice the difference and how long will it last?
Once treated, the affects may take three to seven days to become fully noticeable. The results may last from 3-6 months. Often, repeated treatments can lead to longer lasting results.
What happens as treatment begins to wear off?
As Botox® Cosmetic begins to wear off the wrinkles will begin to reappear but not as deep or noticeable. To maintain your natural beauty and smooth appearing skin, it requires three to four injections per year. With repeated treatments, the effects of Botox® Cosmetic tend to last longer, thus requiring fewer injections.
Is there any downtime?
No. The majority of people return to work or normal activities immediately following treatment. It is recommended that one avoid exercise, heavy lifting, and massaging the injected area for one day.
