Where does Botox come from?
The bacterium Clostridium Botulinum is a dangerous bacterium that produces botulism. This toxin, in large amounts, can be deadly, as it paralyzes the muscles. However, if used in small amounts, it can help relax the muscles that cause wrinkles to appear on your face. While it may not eliminate deep wrinkles, it will reduce their severity.
How does a procedure with Botox work?
During a treatment, Botox is injected into your muscles that are causing wrinkles. When your muscles don’t fully relax, this causes wrinkles to appear. Wrinkles are very common after years of laughing, squinting, or smiling. When Botox is introduced to these muscles, they become paralyzed and relax, reducing your wrinkles. The results are skin that looks smoother and wrinkles that are less prominent or even eliminated.
Should I expect any discomfort during the procedure and how long does a typical treatment last?
It isn’t uncommon for patients to experience slight discomfort during injections. When you discuss Botox treatments with one of our experts, talk to them if this is a concern of yours. We can apply some ice or numbing cream at the injection site to reduce the sensation. A Botox Treatment will not cause any numbness in the area, but rather it will relax your muscles. In most cases, the treatment will not take more than ten minutes to complete.
Typically, it takes around four days for a Botox treatment to have noticeable effects and start to relax your muscles. The results from treatment sessions can last up to four months. Once it begins to wear off, your muscles will begin to contract again, and you could see the wrinkles return. To maintain your goals, a Botox treatment should be expected to be repeated every three to four months.
How much downtime should I expect after a treatment? Do I need to change any of my daily activities?
After a treatment session, our staff will provide you with detailed instructions for aftercare to ensure your Botox treatment is successful. We suggest avoiding bending over or laying down for at least six hours after your treatment. Doing so may cause the injection to seep into other muscles nearby, relaxing muscles that weren’t supposed to be relaxed in the first place. If this happens, it can cause you to not quite meet your aesthetic goals. You can also experience some dry mouth after a treatment session. We will suggest some sugar-free candy to help you with any dry mouth symptoms.
If you have dental work, visit the emergency room, or have surgery, please inform your doctor that you have had a Botox treatment.
