Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a neuromodulator, or a purified, natural protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The injectable medication blocks the nerve signals that control underlying facial muscles.

When injected into treatment areas, the muscles relax, so you have fewer lines and wrinkles when you smile, frown, or squint. You look naturally more youthful following Botox injections without looking like you’ve had work done.

Is Botox safe?

Botox has a long history of positive effects and safety. More than 15 years of clinical studies support its effectiveness, and Botox is approved for use in 96 countries. At least 495 peer-reviewed articles support the use of the neurotoxin for aesthetic purposes.

What areas can be treated with Botox?

Botox is FDA-approved to address many areas that commonly show the signs of aging. These include the:

  • Crow’s feet around the corners and sides of your eyes
  • Frown lines between your eyebrows
  • Furrows across the forehead

If you want these areas smoothed naturally, consult with the doctors at True Care Health & Wellness about Botox injections.

Are Botox injections painful?

Botox does involve a needle, so you will feel a pinch at several locations on your face during the administration of the neurotoxin. However, most people tolerate the procedure quite well. It’s quick, and the procedure leaves no lingering pain.

If you’re concerned about pain, talk to the doctors about using a topical numbing cream or ice prior to treatment.

How soon will I see wrinkle reduction and how long do the results last?

The benefits of Botox show up as soon as 24-48 hours following treatment with full results appearing within seven days. The effects are temporary. You’ll notice wrinkle reduction lasts 3-4 months, after which you can come in for additional treatments to maintain your new look.

Do I need to schedule downtime following Botox treatments?

You can go right back to all your daily activities following Botox treatments, including work and most exercise. That’s one of the major benefits of Botox injections: You get results without long recovery or side effects.
