How does BOTOX® Cosmetic 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.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You can trust BOTOX® Cosmetic to deliver subtle results when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. So you’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.

Do I need to be over 40 to start using BOTOX® Cosmetic?

It’s not your age that determines when BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you, it’s the severity of your lines. In fact, 64% of plastic surgeons report seeing a rise in cosmetic surgery or injectable treatments for patients in their early 30’s.

The truth is, everyone’s lines form differently. The timing can be influenced by a combination of factors, from cellular changes that may occur over time, to reduction of collagen, to genetic factors, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.

How much time does treatment take? Will it hurt?

The actual injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. Then, some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your dentist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

Will I see results quickly? How long do the treatments last?

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so your physician will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.

How long is recovery time after treatment?

Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.

Treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic is customized to your goals and needs. When you meet with Priya Patel, she will determine the appropriate treatment for any areas you wish to address, including moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. Remember, only BOTOX® Cosmetic is approved to treat all three of these areas.

For the crow’s feet area, will inject 3 areas of the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the muscle that frames the other eye.

For the frown lines area, will administer 5 injections into the muscles between your brows and in your forehead.

For the forehead lines area, will administer 5 injections into a muscle in your forehead.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers restore facial volume to correct fat loss that occurs with age. Many temporary fillers (like Restylane and Juvederm) are made of hyaluronic acid and can be used to treat the nasolabial folds, lips, cheeks, under eyes, and temples.

What’s the Difference Between Botox and Dermal Fillers?

BOTOX® treats wrinkles caused by muscle contraction, while fillers restore volume and improve facial fullness. Additionally, Botox targets the upper face (Forehead, crow’s feet, and in between eyebrows), while fillers are most often used on the lower face (nasolabial folds, cheeks, and lips).

Many patients have wrinkles and volume loss, Botox and dermal fillers are often used in combination for complete facial rejuvenation.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Any cosmetic treatment carries some minimal risk. However, Botox and dermal fillers have undergone rigorous testing to obtain FDA-approval. Most common side effects include temporary redness, bruising, and swelling at the injection site.

Botox Side Effects

Botox injections are safe and effective treatments only when administered by a trained and experienced medical practitioner. As with any procedure, they also have possible side effects which patients should be made aware of.

When Botox is injected into muscles, it blocks nerve impulses to those tissues. Where the Botox is injected, neuromodulators temporarily restrict the nerves that stimulate these injected muscles to contract. These muscles are temporarily weakened and can’t make the movements that cause wrinkles and frown lines. You can still make facial expressions, but they will not be as exaggerated. After a few months, the muscle weakness wears off and your muscles regain activity, the line-smoothing effects begin to diminish and the treatment needs to be repeated.

Botulinum Toxin is an approved treatment for injection into the skin to correct wrinkles and lines of the face. Due to the use of a needle, there may be bleeding at the injection site. As is expected for any injection procedure, pain / redness /stinging and /or bruising may be observed in association with the injection. This reaction may last for several days. Headache, facial pain, bruising and local muscle weakness have been reported. If any of these symptoms should occur and persist for more than one week or if you develop any other side effects listed below please report them to your injector.

  • muscle weakness near where the toxin was injected;
  • perceived trouble swallowing after Nefertiti treatment;
  • blurred vision, puffy eyelids, dry eyes, drooping eyebrows;
  • dry mouth;
  • headache, tiredness;

Are Patients Satisfied With Results From Botox and Fillers?

Most patients are extremely pleased with the results of Botox and dermal fillers. They report looking younger and more refreshed, with Botox results lasting four-to-six months and filler results lasting nine-to-12 months
