What is Botox?
Botox and other botulinum toxins are the first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily remove wrinkles from forehead lines, frown lines, laugh and lip lines, or crow’s feet. Injections take less than 10 minutes and have minimal downtime. The treatment lasts up to four months and can be repeated as necessary when facial wrinkles reappear.
Botox can also help future wrinkles from forming. By inactivating a muscle before it pulls the skin, it’ll prevent any lines from forming or getting worse. When people say “you’re too young for Botox,” remember preventative botox is a thing and it works. Who doesn’t love slowing down the aging process??
Typical Botox Treatment
The entire treatment process involves applying very low doses of Botox or Dysport in specific areas of the face. Almost no redness or swelling occurs following injection. No anesthesia is required and the entire procedure takes no more than 10 minutes.
Recovery and Results
After Botox treatment, patients may immediately return to work and resume normal activities. The few exceptions include no working out (you get the rest of the day off!) and no massage (i.e. facials) until the following day. Treatment will gradually take effect in three to five days.
