What to Anticipate
Botox Frequently Asked Questions
What is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic is an FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, moderate to severe crow's feet, and forehead lines in adults. Unlike a face lift or other type of invasive facial rejuvenation procedure, this treatment takes minutes and requires no downtime.
How does Botox work?
Using a very fine needle, Botox is injected into the facial muscles that are responsible for unpleasant wrinkles and fine lines and relaxes the muscles. The ingredients in Botox block the signal from the nerve to the muscle, and therefore minimize its ability to contract and create unpleasant wrinkles.
How much does Botox cost?
The cost depends on you and your needs. Everyone's a little different. Our experts will work with you to tailor a treatment package based on exactly what your needs are.
How long does Botox typically last?
The effects of the treatment can last anywhere from 3-6 months. Several aspects can affect how long the effects last. As the product wears away, muscle action returns slowly, and the previously treated lines and wrinkles might begin to come back, and you may need another treatment. A few of the variables that might lessen or prolong the results are: your age, sun damage, condition of skin, facial structure and expressions, diet, and your past experiences with Botox and other wrinkle relaxers.
When will I see results?
You might begin to notice Botox results within 72 hours with the greatest effect noticeable at 14 days. Results may vary.
Is Botox safe?
Botox Cosmetic is FDA-approved and injections are fairly risk-free when conducted by a skilled injector. It has proven to be a successful and valuable therapeutic protein when dosage, frequency of treatment, and variety of treated clinical conditions are taken into consideration. The best way to make sure you get the results you are seeking is to only receive injections from a highly skilled provider, such as the medical and nursing specialists at Platinum Sculpt.
Who should not receive Botox?
While most individuals aged 18 to 65 are great candidates for Botox and wrinkle relaxers, you should not use Botox if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a skin infection or other condition in the area to be treated, are allergic to any ingredients in Botox, Dysport, or any other botulinum toxin brand, have had a facial surgery, have trouble swallowing, or have weakness in your forehead muscles. If you have any concerns regarding whether or not you might be a good candidate, one of our consultants will be happy to answer any questions you may have. With any medical treatments, it is best to discuss the treatment with your doctor prior to starting treatment.
