Botox

What is Botox?

As you age, repetitive facial expressions like smiling, frowning, or squinting can cause the muscles in your face to become permanently contracted, resulting in wrinkles and lines. Botox is an injectable treatment that reduces the appearance of these common signs of aging. 

Botox contains a neurotoxin that blocks nerve signals in the target area, allowing your muscles to relax and your expression to soften. It leaves your skin looking smoother and your appearance more youthful.


What areas can Botox address?

Botox is effective for treating wrinkles and lines in these areas:

  • Crow’s feet 
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Lines near the corners of the mouth

Botox can also smooth the “cobblestone” texture that sometimes occurs in the chin area, and be used to relax tight bands in the neck that have a prominent appearance.

 

Is Botox safe?

Botox is FDA-approved for cosmetic purposes and has been used safely for many years. The trained team at Aesthetics By Family Care has extensive experience performing Botox injections, so you never have to worry about a “frozen” look or experience difficulty making regular facial expressions.


What should I expect during Botox treatment?

Your Aesthetics By Family Care specialist begins by cleansing the treatment area. They may make some marks on your skin to identify the muscles targeted for your injections.

Your specialist uses a fine needle to administer your Botox treatment. You may feel a slight pinch with each injection, but most people find this to be tolerable. If you have sensitive skin, you can request that your specialist apply a topical numbing gel before beginning your treatment.

Typically, Botox treatments take about 15-20 minutes, so they’re convenient to schedule during your lunch hour or whenever you have a break in your schedule. 

 

Does Botox require any downtime?

Botox doesn’t require downtime, so you can return to normal activities right after your appointment. You may have a little swelling, bruising, or redness around the injection sites, but these typically go away in a few hours.


How long will my results from Botox injections last?

The full results of your Botox injections should appear between 3-7 days after your treatment. In most cases, results last 3-4 months.

Botox is a fast, effective way to freshen and rejuvenate your look. To schedule a Botox consultation, call Aesthetics By Family Care today, or make an appointment online.
