WILL I SEE RESULTS QUICKLY? HOW LONG DO TREATMENT EFFECTS LAST?

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with full effect happening around the two week mark.  Results last up to four months for moderate to severe 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.

IS BOTOX® COSMETIC ONLY FOR WOMEN?

Not at all! Many men make BOTOX® Cosmetic part of what they do to care for their appearance.

The number of men choosing treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic has risen fast – in the past three years alone, men have received over one million botulinum toxin treatments. When surveyed, the majority of men say they want to look good and they’re bothered by the changes they see in the mirror. 80% would choose to treat their crow’s feet first, while 74% would prioritize their forehead lines, and 60% would most like to treat their frown lines.


WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOTOX AND FILLER?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is primarily used to treat dynamic wrinkles. These wrinkles occur naturally around the eyes and mouth, as well as in between your eyebrows. They become more pronounced with age. Botox injections relax the muscles near these wrinkles. Not allowing the muscles to move reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles.
Botox is not used for fine lines caused by collagen breakdown.


​Dermal fillers also treat wrinkles on the face. They’re most commonly used to treat smile lines and to plump up the lips or cheeks or even the chin.  They can also be used to reduce the appearance of scars. 



HOW OLD DO I NEED TO BE 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.

Whenever your lines start to bother you, go speak with your doctor. They can help you determine if treatment is right for you.

WILL MY FACE LOOK OVERDONE OR UNNATURAL?

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.

WHAT IS BOTOX® COSMETIC?

A quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime.

HOW MUCH TIME DOES TREATMENT TAKE? WILL IT HURT?

The actual injection process takes a quick 10-15 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 nothing to a slight pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

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

HOW DO DERMAL FILLERS WORK?

A small amount is injected directly into the skin to add volume. Hyaluronic Acid is naturally integrated into the tissue and allows for the free passage of important nutritive elements like oxygen and hormones. The product will also bind water, which adds to the filling effect.


 

WHAT IS HYLURONIC ACID?

Hyaluronic acid is a gel that is injected into the skin to add volume to the lips, restore volume, and fill in wrinkles or folds. The syringe contains hyaluronic acid almost identical to that naturally found in the body. It is completely biologically degradable.
