Botox Q & A
What is Botox?
Botox is a powerful wrinkle removal and control formula that can cause controlled paralysis in specific muscles. It can smooth away even ingrained lines, and can also prevent you from making the expressions that cause the lines to form again.
Is Botox safe?
Yes. When properly injected by a trained practitioner like those at Rejuvenate Weight Loss and Wellness, Botox is a safe and reliable wrinkle solution. Botox gained FDA approval in 2002, and it's the number one cosmetic procedure in the United States today.
What's the best area for Botox treatment?
Botox works quite effectively in several different areas. The most popular parts of the face for Botox treatment are the:
- "11s," or the pair of lines between your eyebrows
- Crow's feet around your eyes
- Lines across your forehead
Most patients have a series of quick injections in their upper face to cover all of these areas, but your treatment is customized based on your needs.
Is Botox the same thing as fillers?
No, Botox helps with dynamic wrinkles, the ones that develop from muscle use. Dermal fillers help with static wrinkles, the facial folds that happen because of volume loss. Each of these injectables has its purpose, and you can have Botox and a dermal filler at the same time if needed.
How long does Botox last?
You may notice results as soon as 24-48 hours after treatment, although it could take longer. For most patients, Botox provides 3-4 months of wrinkle correction. To maintain your results long term and maintain a continuously smooth face, schedule follow-up treatments at Rejuvenate Weight Loss and Wellness before the Botox has completely worn off.
Is there any downtime after I get Botox?
No, in fact, that's one of the major Botox benefits. Your treatment takes only a few minutes, and you can then return to your day right away. If you'd like, you can even schedule a Botox treatment during a lunch or dinner break.
