Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox injections are a type of medication derived from botulinum toxin. Botox blocks nerve signals, resulting in a reduction of activity in the muscles around the injection site.

Relaxing these contracted muscles can smooth out wrinkles and creases caused by repetitive facial expressions, resulting in a younger and more pleasing appearance.


What areas can Botox treat?

The team at The Center for Aesthetics uses Botox injections to reduce the appearance of the following concerns:
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow's feet

  • Smile lines
  • Marionette (chin) lines
  • Tight neck bands

The team works with you to tailor a Botox treatment specifically for your needs.


Are Botox treatments right for me?

People in good health who have wrinkles and creases caused by repetitive facial expressions may benefit from Botox treatments.

During your consultation at The Center for Aesthetics, your skilled aesthetics professional discusses your skin goals with you and recommends the best treatment options to meet your individual needs.


What should I expect during a Botox treatment?

A Botox injection procedure takes about 10 minutes or less, depending on the target area. Your Center for Aesthetics expert uses an extra-fine needle to deliver the medication, so anesthesia isn't necessary.

You might feel a slight pinching as the needle enters your skin, but most people find this to be tolerable. If you have sensitive skin and you're concerned about discomfort, your provider can apply a topical numbing gel to your skin prior to beginning the treatment.

You should see results within a week of your injection, and results can last up to four months.


Are Botox injections safe?

Botox is FDA-approved and considered to be safe. Side effects, such as irritation at the injection site, headache, neck pain, or eye problems, are possible but typically resolve quickly. More serious side effects are rare.
