Botox Q & A

What is Botox®?

Botox® is an injectable medication that targets contracted muscles beneath your skin that cause wrinkles, creases, and expression lines to form. The skilled team of professionals at Dr. Alexis Aesthetics uses Botox® to help your expression look younger and more pleasant.

How does Botox work?

Repeated facial expressions like smiling, frowning, and squinting can result in permanently contracted muscles that create wrinkles and creases over time. Botox® and other types of neuromodulation injection therapy, such as Dysport®, block nerve signals to your muscles, causing them to relax. 

The experienced, licensed injector team at Dr. Alexis Aesthetics uses Botox® to smooth and rejuvenate your skin without giving your face a “frozen” look.

Which areas can be treated with Botox?

 Botox® reduces the appearance of wrinkles, creases, or lines in the following areas:

  • Forehead
  • Between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lip area
  • Chin

Botox® can also:

  • Brighten your eyes by creating a lift in your eyebrow area.
  • Reduce a “gummy” smile
  • Treat excessive sweating

When will I see results from Botox injections?

Results are typically noticeable within 3-5 days of treatment, with full results visible within 10-14 days.

How long will my results from Botox injections last?

Botox® results last between 3-6 months on average. Touch-up treatments may require fewer injections than your original procedure and help maintain improvements to your skin for long-lasting wrinkle reduction.

Are Botox injections safe?

Botox® and Dysport® are both FDA approved for cosmetic use and are considered safe, effective treatments for wrinkles and lines caused by repetitive facial expression. You may experience a little redness or irritation around the treatment site, but this usually subsides quickly. More serious side effects are possible but rare.

Am I a candidate for Botox?

If you have mild to moderate wrinkles or creases caused by repeated facial expressions, Botox® may be right for you. Wrinkles caused by skin laxity and other factors may respond better to dermal fillers such as Juvéderm®. 

During your initial consultation at Dr. Alexis Aesthetics, your aesthetic specialist discusses your options with you in detail, so you can choose the treatment that best meets your needs.
