Botox Q & A

Clinical Skin Therapeutics

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is a popular cosmetic treatment to improve your appearance and restore your youthful glow. BOTOX injections contain tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein, a naturally occurring substance. With BOTOX, you can treat several signs of aging on your face, including:

  • Moderate to severe frown lines
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Wrinkles between the eyes (glabella)
  • Crow’s feet

BOTOX has been studied thoroughly by the medical community and is approved for medical use in more than 75 countries around the world.

How does BOTOX treatment work?

BOTOX injections help you look younger by targeting the underlying causes of aging signs, such as frown lines and crow’s feet.

Over time, your facial muscles contract as you squint, frown, and smile on a daily basis, which leads to wrinkles. BOTOX injections temporarily paralyze specific facial muscles, reducing their contractions. Aging signs caused by sun damage won’t respond to BOTOX treatment.

In-office treatment sessions are fast, safe, and effective. BOTOX injections take about 10 minutes. There is minimal downtime associated with the procedure and results appear quickly.

When will I see results from BOTOX injections?

You will see results from BOTOX immediately afterward, or at least within the first one to two days. Results should last up to about four months, but you should return for additional BOTOX treatments if you want to maintain your anti-aging results long-term.

What are common side effects of BOTOX?

As is the case with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects. Some of the side effects BOTOX patients experience include:

  • Eyelid drooping
  • Eyelid swelling
  • Dry mouth
  • Discomfort or pain at the injection site
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Blurred vision
  • Allergic reaction

However, BOTOX injections are safe and don’t pose much risk at all when performed by a professional. At Clinical Skin Therapeutics, your provider can answer all of your questions about BOTOX treatment and outline more procedure specifics for you.

If you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological disease, you shouldn’t receive BOTOX treatment.
