How Does Botox Work?
Lines and wrinkles on the face are caused by facial expressions that make muscles contract and crease the skin. Common causes include frowning or squinting. Botox is a clean protein that works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This relaxes the muscles so they no longer contract or crease your skin resulting in smoother, more even, younger-looking skin.
Botox treatments can dramatically improve the appearance of your skin over time. Skin cells are constantly renewing and regenerating, skin is constantly replacing itself. So if we keep your facial muscles relaxed and prevent them from contracting in specific areas (e.g. the crow’s feet area around your eyes, your forehead, and in between your eyebrows) your skin will gradually soften and smooth out as your skin cells renew overtime.
Maintaining your treatments is key (the effects of Botox injections are temporary) refresher appointments are typically set for every 3 to 4 months.
When Will I See Results After My Botox Treatment?
You can expect your Botox treatment to start taking effect any where from 3 days to 1 week after your treatment (this duration varies between patients). Over the next few weeks your wrinkles and lines will continue to soften and smooth out. Additional treatments are necessary to maintain achieved results.

How Long Does Botox Last?

Things To Know Before Your Botox Treatment
One of the ways to avoid unnecessary bruising is to avoid the use of blood thinners, such as Aspirin, Motrin, Vitamin E or Ginseng for a period of 10 days prior to your Botox treatment. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding cannot have Botox treatments.
What Can I Expect During My Botox Treatment?
On the day of your treatment, your expert injector will meet you in a private treatment room to discuss your aesthetic goals in detail. After a full assessment of your facial lines and wrinkles your injector will determine the proper dosage of Botox for your treatment. Before your injections begins, she will cleanse the area to be treated to remove any makeup or oil from the surface of your skin (very important). If you can, please come to your appointment without any makeup on. Now that your skin is clean your injector is ready to introduce the Botox with an ultra-fine needle (which may feel like a light pinch) into the treatment area. Botox appointments typically last anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes. As soon as your appointment is over you can reapply your makeup and get right back to your daily activities, there is no downtime with Botox.
