Botox is the leading cosmetic injectable treatment in the United States, with more than 1.5 million injections done annually. It’s FDA-approved to treat dynamic facial wrinkles, and results last up to four months.
Botox contains a safe, purified botulinum toxin. When you get Botox injections, the solution relaxes the muscles under your skin to smooth away moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. The result? You still look like you, but with fewer wrinkles.
Botox treats moderate to severe dynamic facial wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. Your skin naturally changes as you get older, making wrinkles more common. Dynamic wrinkles, in particular, develop with repetitive facial expressions.
Squinting, raising your eyebrows, and frowning all crease your skin. Over the years, those creases can become permanent — and turn into crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines.
Botox injections target the muscles responsible for those lines and wrinkles. Treatment temporarily relaxes the muscles, and you get smoother, more youthful-looking skin. You can still make expressions, but lines and wrinkles are less noticeable when you’re at rest.
Along with facial lines and wrinkles, Botox can treat other health issues like chronic migraine and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). It’s injected into specific locations around the head and neck to relieve muscle tension responsible for chronic pain.
Getting Botox injections takes just a few minutes in the office. The team starts with a consultation to understand your aesthetic goals. Then, they work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.
Your provider prepares your skin and injects Botox using a tiny needle. Most people describe the treatment as a “small pinch” that’s generally well-tolerated.
Botox specialists usually treat frown lines and forehead lines with five injections and crow’s feet with three injections around each eye. Your provider may recommend several injections for you, based on your needs.
There’s no downtime required with Botox, so you can return to your usual activities right away. Your results start developing over the next 24-48 hours. You can expect your full results to last about four months, at which time you can get Botox again if you want to.
