Botox Q & A
What is Botox?
Botox is a neurotoxin, a protein that comes from botulinum toxin. When injected into specific facial or neck muscles, Botox disrupts nerve impulses to those muscles. This relaxes the muscles that cause moderate to severe facial wrinkles.
Essentially, Botox temporarily stops you from creating wrinkle-causing movements like heavy squinting or drawing your brows together when you frown.
What kind of wrinkles does Botox treat?
Botox can treat the wrinkles that happen after years of muscle contractions. The main treatment areas are:
- The brow area, including between your brows
- The lines above your eyebrows, up to your hair line
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Bunny lines at the top of your nose
- Fine lines around your lip border (the vermillion border)
- Horizontal neck lines
For other types of wrinkles, like smile lines, dermal fillers may be better. If you’re concerned about multiple areas, Dr. Chavez can treat them all in the same session at Soulage Wellness & Aesthetic Center.
How does Botox treatment work?
At Soulage Wellness & Aesthetic Center, all Botox injections are performed by either Dr. Chavez or the staff nurse practitioner after a careful assessment. Both have specialized injectables training to ensure your excellent results.
Your provider cleans your skin and then asks you to frown and make other expressions to contract your facial muscles. Your provider notes the muscle movement and may mark the treatment areas. They recommend injection areas based on your main and secondary areas of concern, and then give you a price estimate and verify with you before performing the injections.
Your expert provider uses an ultrafine needle to place Botox into the muscles below your skin. The process is virtually pain-free for most patients and any mild sting or prick lasts just seconds. The whole treatment only takes 10-30 minutes.
When will I see a change after Botox treatment?
Botox gives you rapid results. You may notice improvement as early as 24-48 hours after injection, with full results usually appearing within a week.
Botox allows you to turn back the clock by looking up to a decade younger after a simple and easy treatment session at Soulage Wellness & Aesthetic Center.
How long will my Botox last?
Botox has excellent longevity, lasting around 3-4 months in most patients. You can keep your youthful look by scheduling repeat treatments a few times a year.
