Botox Q & A
What is Botox®?
Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment containing botulinum type A toxin. The team at Diamond Surgical Institute uses it to reduce signs of aging caused by smiling, frowning, squinting, and other facial expressions. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing muscles associated with these expressions.
Botox is a temporary treatment, but the results are immediate and the effects last several months.
What are the benefits of Botox?
When choosing Botox as a cosmetic treatment, you can reap numerous aesthetic benefits from the noninvasive procedure. Examples include reductions in:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead creases
- Frown lines
- Smile lines
- Other lines near your mouth
- A cobblestoned chin
Botox is fast and noninvasive without surgery or downtime. It’s one of the most common cosmetic treatments, as it helps millions of men and women fight signs of aging each year.
What happens during Botox treatment?
Prior to Botox treatment, the team at Diamond Surgical Institute reviews your medical history and completes a skin exam to let you know if Botox or another cosmetic procedure, such as dermal fillers, best matches your personalized needs.
They apply an anesthetic to your skin if you desire to numb the area and inject Botox just beneath your skin at strategic points. The procedure is quick and painless. After your treatment, the team at Diamond Surgical Institute will give you detailed aftercare instructions. To keep your skin safe, the team might advise avoiding sun exposure or specific activities for a few days. Most women and men, however, return to their normal activities quickly.
Your skin might feel slightly red or tender immediately after the procedure, but these side effects go away quickly. Full results from a Botox procedure are noticeable in about four weeks.
