Common BOTOX® Cosmetic Questions
How does Botox Cosmetic work?
Botox Cosmetic is a purified protein that relaxes the muscles under the skin. Overactive muscle contraction, combined with age-related loss of collagen under the skin, is responsible for much of the wrinkling effect seen on aging faces. By forcing the muscle to relax in a certain area, the wrinkling disappears or at least improves significantly with the use of Botox Cosmetic.
Who is a candidate for Botox Cosmetic? Since it acts by relaxing muscles, it is more effective for the treatment of “dynamic” wrinkles (those that appear while using facial muscles, such as smiling or frowning) than on “static” wrinkles, which are there all the time. If you desire a more youthful look by elevating your brow, Botox Cosmetic is an excellent choice.
Is Botox Cosmetic safe? Physicians have used botulinum toxin safely and extensively for more than 20 years to treat a variety of muscular diseases as well as wrinkles. The injection causes temporary weakness of only those muscles injected.
What should I expect? Botox Cosmetic injection treatments are attractive because they are relatively inexpensive and require no recovery time. Injections are done with a fine needle and require no anesthesia. By carefully choosing the muscles to treat, we weaken only the wrinkle-producing muscles while preserving natural facial expression. Treatment takes about 15 minutes. Most patients can return to work immediately. Patients should avoid strenuous physical activity for the first 24 hours after the injection. The effect is not immediate. It usually takes up to five days to notice a reduction in muscle activity and full effects are seen at two weeks. Potential risks are thoroughly discussed with you before your first treatment.
How long will it last? An improvement can be seen within days and normally lasts 3-4 months, although results may vary. After repeated treatment cycles, the effects may last longer.
