Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin that effectively treats facial wrinkles and folds. After it is injected, Botox blocks nerve signals that cause muscle contraction, which makes the muscles relax and eliminates or significantly diminishes the wrinkles associated with those muscles.
Two types of facial wrinkles develop over time. The first type, static wrinkles, form because of age-related changes in your skin such as thinning, dehydration, and less collagen production.
The second type, dynamic wrinkles, are caused by muscle motions that form facial expressions like smiling and frowning. Over the years, these repetitive muscle movements create dynamic wrinkles.
Botox only treats dynamic wrinkles because it affects muscles, so it’s used to diminish:
After a Botox treatment, your face looks natural and reflects your normal emotions. Dr. Amin precisely targets small areas of specific muscles. The majority of your facial muscles continue to work normally, showing your facial expressions.
Most patients tolerate Botox injections, feeling only feel a slight pinch at the injection site. Some patients, however, opt for a topical anesthetic to ensure their comfort. Applying Ice before and after treatment also helps to prevent pain and swelling.
Botox treatments typically take about 15 minutes, but the length of your session depends on the area being treated and whether you choose to receive other injectable treatments at the same time.
When your session is finished, the injection sites may be slightly red, swollen, or bruised, but only for a short time. You can get back to your normal daily activities after Botox treatment, although Dr. Amin may recommend you avoid strenuous activities for several hours.
You’ll see results in three to seven days, and the results typically last about three to six months.* As Botox gradually wears off, you can get another treatment when that happens. Your results may last longer with future injections.
If you’d like to diminish static wrinkles and get immediate results, you can have dermal fillers injected during your Botox session. Dermal fillers treat wrinkles around your mouth and nose. They’re also used for lifting or plumping your cheeks and lips.
*Individual results may vary.
