Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an effective cosmetic injectable treatment made from the botulinum toxin. Botox has been safely used for many years to treat medical conditions like chronic migraines, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms. Botox can also smooth away wrinkles and fine lines to unveil firmer and more youthful-looking skin.

When your Better Life Medical provider injects Botox into specific facial muscles, it blocks the nerve signals that trigger your muscle contractions. This temporarily relaxes your muscles, and the wrinkles created by those muscles are either eliminated or significantly diminished.

What aesthetic concerns does Botox treat?

Botox can successfully treat even the deepest and most noticeable wrinkles, such as:

  • Forehead furrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines

Your provider precisely targets a few key facial muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles while leaving your other facial muscles unaffected. This way, you can achieve natural-looking results following your Botox treatment.

Most people are suitable candidates for Botox injections. If you have certain neurological conditions or you’re pregnant, you shouldn’t receive Botox injections.

What should I expect during a Botox treatment?

During your personal consultation, your provider reviews your medical history, answers your questions, and makes sure you’re a good candidate for Botox.

Your provider carefully injects a minor amount of Botox with an ultra-fine needle. Depending on the treatment area and your individual preferences, your Better Life Medical provider typically administers 4 to 10 injections.

After your Botox treatment, you might have some mild swelling or redness in the area, but you can use makeup to cover it up, and it should subside shortly. You can return to your normal daily activities immediately after your Botox injections.

When can I expect results, and how long will they last?

In as little as one to two days, you can expect to notice impressive results from your Botox treatment. This is generally how long it takes for Botox to relax your facial muscles fully.

The results of Botox can last up to four months or longer. The effect wears off over time as your body metabolizes the medication.

When your results fade, you can receive another Botox treatment to maintain your firmer, smoother, and more youthful appearance. The results of Botox can become more effective with the more treatments you receive.
