Botox Q & A

What is BOTOX® and how does it work?

BOTOX Cosmetic is an FDA-approved treatment proven to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in men and women that are caused by overactive facial muscles. The FDA-approved BOTOX neurotoxin temporarily prevents unwanted muscle contractions by blocking nerve signals in the muscle it is injected in.

What cosmetic and medical concerns can BOTOX treat?

BOTOX is used to treat many cosmetic concerns in both men and women, including lines between the brows, frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, and neck bands. It can be used to reduce muscles in a bulky jaw line, correct an asymmetrical smile, lift the brow, and treat other facial concerns that are caused by over-contracted muscles. BOTOX is also approved for the medical treatment of excessive sweating, chronic neck pain, and even certain kinds of chronic migraines.

What should I expect from treatment?

A BOTOX injection session takes between 10 and 20 minutes. Dr. Thanapathy will discuss each patient’s expectations and determine the number of injections needed in specific parts of the face to achieve those goals. Male and female patients will emerge from treatment with younger- and smoother-looking skin. BOTOX treatments do not require downtime. Many patients have the treatment completed during their lunch hour. The full effects of the injections are noticeable 3 to 5 days after treatment. The results are temporary and touch-up appointments are needed approximately every 2-6 months depending upon the areas treated.
