You are probably aware of the benefits of Botox injections to soften and sometimes eliminate facial wrinkles. However, while Botox is quite popular as an antiaging treatment, most potential patients have questions that they need to be answered about Botox.
What is Botox?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the #1 selling treatment of its kind. It’s the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines look better in adults. It delivers predictable, subtle results, so you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines.
How does Botox work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines.
Prevention is key! Once there visible lines when the face it at rest, it is very difficult to smooth the skin completely. This is why it is important to get even a small amount of Botox early to prevent fine lines from developing.
How many injections will I receive?
Treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic is customized to your goals and needs. When you meet with our specialist, we will determine the appropriate treatment for any areas you wish to address.
How long is the recovery time after treatment?
Treatment requires minimal downtime. You can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave the office.
Will I see results quickly?
While the experience of each patient may differ, it usually takes 1-2 weeks to see the effects of Botox.
How Long Do the Effects Last?
The effects will last up to three months, meaning regular treatments are advised for the best results. Without treatment, frown lines and wrinkles may gradually return to their pre-treatment states.
Is Treatment Available for Men?
Absolutely! BOTOX is used widely by both men and women. At Elite, we are happy to accommodate the needs of both men and women.
