Botox is the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, a popular non-surgical treatment for forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines and thick bands in the neck. Botox blocks muscular nerve signals weakening the muscles and offers temporary elimination of facial wrinkles.

Am I the right candidate for Botox?

If you are developing wrinkles and lines due to facial movements and aging, or if you are genetically inclined to lines on the face; Botox is the perfect solution for you. Most creases and wrinkles can be partially improved with Botox before fat grafting, fillers or a surgical procedure.

Like many injectable fillers, you must be in general good health and have realistic expectations to be an ideal candidate.

What is the Botox treatment?

There are 43 facial muscles and it is important to pinpoint the accurate spots for optimizing the treatment. Botox is injected into the muscles that produce wrinkles through very thin needles, ensuring that your facial expressions are preserved.

Your Botox treatment will only take about 15 minutes. The amount of Botox injections required depends on the degree of the wrinkles; for instance, it takes about 2 to 3 injections for crow’s feet, while furrows above the brow would take more than 5.

What is recovery like from Botox?

You can return to day to day activities immediately after your Botox treatment. However, you must not indulge in any strenuous activity for the rest of the day. Your treatment may lead to swelling and redness which usually resolves on its own; any bruising resolves within 7 to 14 days.
What results can I expect from Botox?

It will take a few days for you to see your results from Botox. The effects may last anywhere from 3 to 6 months depending on your skin condition, age and lifestyle habits. You must keep in touch with your surgeon since Botox requires re-evaluation and frequent touch ups to keep your wrinkles away.
