Frequently Asked Questions
What is Botox Cosmetic®?
BOTOX Cosmetic® is a prescription medicine injected into the facial muscles to help temporarily improve the appearance of wrinkles, which are caused by repeated facial movements. The most commonly treated areas include:
- the lines around the eyes known as crows feet caused by squinting or smiling
- the horizontal lines across the forehead caused by raising the eyebrows
- the glabellar lines between the eyebrows caused by frowning.
Botox Cosmetic® works by simply blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles, reducing the activities of the muscles underneath the skin to create a smooth and refreshed appearance.
Generally, after the consultation, the entire procedure only takes up to 10 minutes. Since there is no downtime with Botox Cosmetic® treatment – you can have it on your lunchtime – and no one would notice you have had it done!
Most patients may see improvement within days. However, it can take UP TO 2 weeks to see marked results.
It is injected with a very tiny needle – much smaller than those used to take your blood etc. Delicate insulin – type needle is used.
Prior to injection, your physician may numb the area with a anesthetic cream or cold pack. Most patients say the injection feel like a little pinch - the discomfort is usually minimal and brief, though everyone can be different.
No, Botox Cosmetic® is not permanent. Visible results usually last between 3-4 months, but everyone can be different. Most patients who get their first 3 treatments done “back to back” every 3 months, find that:
- their next treatment lasts approx. 4 months
- then the next treatment lasts approx. 5 months
- and the following treatment lasts approx. 6 months
- patients who stay on our prompt treatment schedule can stabilize their treatments at approximately 2 times per year (saves you money!!)
No! Your face will never get worse if you stop using Botox Cosmetic® or when it wears off. Botox Cosmetic® stops / slows” the clock of aging. When you stop getting treatments, the “aging clock” resumes like normal. At the very minimum, you will simply return to where you started. If you use Botox Cosmetic® for a number of years and then stop – your muscles learn to relax and therefore you will end up looking a little better than when you originally started.
The cost of treatment varies by each patient and the number of units needed. The exact # of units you require (to achieve the look you want) will be discussed during your personal consultation.
A unit of Botox Cosmetic® is simply a very tiny measurement of drug.
Will I look like a mask without expression after Botox® Injection?
You can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows. Most patients typically say that no one notices that they had anything done. Friends simply say that they look well RELAXED and REFRESHED!
Side effects are RARE and NOT PERMANENT. Rarely, there can be some minor bruising, localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling and redness. Most patients do not experience any side effects at all.
Botox Cosmetic® stays local to the muscle where it was injected. After the injection, Botox Cosmetic® is simply metabolized and broken down into natural byproducts within a few hours.
No. It is recommended that you wait until you are finished breast feeding to have your Botox Cosmetic® done. Although there is no clinical evidence to prove any harm to the mother or baby – we prefer to be safe.
