Botox Q & A

How does Botox work?

Botox® is an FDA-approved neurotoxin aesthetic injectable that targets the muscles underneath your skin. Your facial muscles are essential for helping you smile, frown, raise your eyebrows, and make other normal expressions. 

As you get older and start losing that cushioning layer of subcutaneous fat, muscles start working closer to your skin’s surface, which leads to wrinkles.

Skin-tightening collagen also starts breaking down, and your skin loses its ability to bounce right back into place. So, with age, each time you make a facial expression, the lines and wrinkles that form start sticking around.

The botulinum toxins in Botox interact with cell signaling that makes your muscles contract and twitch. While you can still make all of your regular facial expressions after getting Botox injections, your muscles stay relaxed, so all those lines and wrinkles stop forming. Your skin can naturally smooth out this way.

What does Botox treat?

Botox can restore your youthful appearance and take years off your face, even if you have moderate to severe wrinkles and grooves. Botox is ideal for treating:

  • Smile lines
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet

As an alternative to Botox, the skilled skin care team at Creekside Family Practice offers fillers. This injectable type is ideal for improving the appearance of the most dramatic lines and skin folds.

When will I see results with Botox?

Botox provides results almost instantly*. Some men and women experience slight redness, swelling, or irritation shortly after Botox injections. These minor side effects typically fade away within a few days, which leaves you with visibly smoother skin rather quickly.

How long does Botox last?

Botox is long lasting. You can expect your visibly smoother, younger-looking skin to last for as long as four months. For finer lines, you might even notice the benefits of Botox last even longer.

When you come to Creekside Family Practice for your Botox consultation, your dedicated aesthetic specialist, Dr. Qureshi, lets you know how long your injections should last based on your specific concerns.
