Botox Q & A

How does Botox work?

Botox is an FDA-approved aesthetic injectable that’s designed to target the underlying cause of wrinkles: muscle contractions and twitching. The science behind Botox, a purified form of a botulinum toxin, simply involves injecting a solution that interacts with muscles that help you make facial expressions.

It’s the job of Botox to block muscle-contracting cell signaling so that your facial muscles can relax. Even though you can still make your normal facial expressions, muscles are able to relax, which allows your skin to smooth out naturally.

What can Botox treat?

Botox is one of the most commonly performed anti-aging aesthetic solutions on the market. The muscle-relaxing effects of Botox are ideal for minimizing the appearance of:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Sagging brows
  • Neck skin bands
  • Frown lines between brows
  • Lines around your mouth and chin

Plus, Botox can even minimize issues with excessive sweating in your underarms, a common (and embarrassing) issue known as hyperhidrosis.

Are Botox injections permanent?

The powerful effects of Botox aren’t permanent, although optimal results can last for months on end. Usually, Botox provides superior anti-aging benefits for at least four months. Once you start noticing that Botox is wearing off, you can always come back to Aesthetic + Wellness for another Botox treatment.

Even though Botox is an ideal solution for minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, it doesn’t restore lost volume. To enhance the effects of Botox and help you have longer-lasting benefits, the team at Aesthetic + Wellness may recommend pairing Botox with dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm®. Fillers are known for smoothing and plumping your skin for at least 12-24 months.

Does it hurt to get Botox?

Botox can cause a bit of a pinching feeling, which comes from the tiny needle. You shouldn’t be in pain though. The skin care experts at Aesthetic + Wellness want to ensure your Botox service is as comfortable as possible.

They provide a topical numbing cream that you can apply about 20 minutes before your scheduled appointment to lessen the injection sensation you feel. When you visit Aesthetic + Wellness for your Botox consultation, your dedicated practitioner can talk with you about when you should apply a topical numbing cream and where to apply it.
