How does Botox work?
Botox is a type of neuromodulator, which means that when injected, it reduces the contractions of the muscles. Neuromodulators like Botox have been around for years in medicine and used in various treatments such as chronic headaches, overactive bladder, and excessive sweating. Through the course of these uses, doctors began to see the cosmetic benefits of using Botox to address the visible signs of aging.
During Botox treatments, the doctor targets the muscles in the face that are responsible for the development of dynamic wrinkles. Botox temporarily blocks the signals to these muscles, allowing them to relax and temporarily smoothing out the appearance of the face. Results from Botox can be visible within about a week and last for approximately six months or so before maintenance injections are needed.
What to expect with Botox Injections?
During your injection appointment, the area will be cleansed and then we will determine which muscles to target for injections. By taking the time to map out treatment, we can ensure that the results are natural looking and not overdone. Patients will need to relax their face while the injections begin. There is some discomfort, but overall, the treatment is extremely tolerable. The entire procedure typically lasts less than 15 minutes.
Following Botox injections, patients can resume normal daily activities without restrictions. There may be some localized swelling, itching, or discomfort but these should disappear within a couple of days. Cosmetics can be used over the treatment sites and it’s important to wear a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 or higher.
