What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is a controlled medication made from botulinum toxin . This purified protein is designed to help relax muscles temporarily—specifically the ones responsible for developing fine lines and wrinkles. With this cosmetic treatment, our team can help smooth your facial appearance, creating a more youthful and healthier look. Results typically show after five to ten days, and they can usually last three to six months before needing touch-ups.

Who is a Good Candidate for BOTOX®?

You are likely a good candidate for BOTOX® if you’re interested in reducing or eliminating wrinkles and fine lines on your face or around your mouth. Patients are typically eligible for this treatment if they’re in their late 20s or older and wish to improve certain facial features, such as:

  • Horizontal lines on the forehead
  • Lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lines at the corners of the mouth
  • Smoker’s lines around the lips

Keep in mind, however, that those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, dealing with a neurological disorder, or are allergic to certain ingredients in the BOTOX® solution might not be able to undergo the treatment. That’s why you’ll need to attend a consultation with us so we can review your condition and medical history to determine if this service is a good option for you.

Is BOTOX Safe?

BOTOX uses botulinum toxin in safely small amounts, and some research suggests that using it for cosmetic purposes may be less risky than for therapeutic purposes as the doses are much smaller. In the fourteen years following BOTOX being approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, only thirty-six adverse events were reported, and the unfortunate effects were due to the patient having an underlying medical condition in most of them. You are most likely to experience adverse side effects if your treatment isn’t prepared properly or if it is administered by an inexperienced practitioner.

Is BOTOX Permanent?

The effects of BOTOX are temporary because they result from a protein that breaks down over time in your body, and its duration depends on factors such as your age, metabolism, activity level, and exposure to environmental toxins. BOTOX treatments usually last for about three months, but some people find that it lasts up to six months. During this period, you will look more youthful and vibrant, and the treatment can be repeated as many times as you like. The effects of BOTOX being temporary helps make it safer and more effective as an antiaging treatment, as it gives you and your provider the chance to monitor health developments and consider new aesthetic goals.

How Can I Prolong My BOTOX Injections?

  • Wear Sunscreen: Since wrinkles caused by sun damage are not the result of muscle movements, BOTOX is ineffective against them. Sun damage can also lead to the BOTOX protein breaking down faster.
  • Consider low-intensity workouts: High-intensity exercise increases your metabolic rate, causing your body to break down the BOTOX protein more quickly. While you should still exercise, try to integrate more low-to-moderate training into your workouts.
  • Reduce stress: Chronic stress can agitate the muscles that BOTOX targets, causing the protein to wear off and break down more quickly.
  • Use moisturizer: Moisturizers with hyaluronic acid and collagen can help keep your skin looking full and healthy while reducing how quickly the BOTOX protein breaks down.
  • Kick the nicotine habit: Nicotine causes your collagen to break down, resulting in skin damage and limiting the effectiveness of BOTOX treatments. A smoking or vaping habit also leads to fine lines forming around the mouth and eyes that BOTOX cannot address.
  • Take a zinc supplement: A study from the Journal of Drugs and Dermatology found that taking a 50-milligram zinc supplement increased the duration of the effects of BOTOX by 30% in more than 90% of the studied population.

Is BOTOX Only for Women?

American men receive more than 500,000 BOTOX injections every year to help them look good on the job, on social media, or for their significant others. Men often get BOTOX to prevent crow’s feet from forming at the corners of their eyes, between the eyebrows to reduce frown lines, in the forehead to smooth out creases, or around the mouth to reduce laugh lines. BOTOX is also appealing to men because it only takes fifteen to twenty minutes to perform, involves no downtime, and starts showing results within five to seven days.
