Botox Q & A
What is BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX is an FDA-approved injectable medication designed to smooth moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet.
How Does BOTOX Work?
Frown lines and crow’s feet are caused by squinting and frowning, which both use the same muscles in the forehead. By targeting and temporarily weakening the muscles that cause these deep lines, BOTOX smooths the skin, creating a vibrant, youthful appearance.
Does BOTOX Create an Unnatural Look?
After receiving BOTOX injections by an experienced, qualified doctor like Dr. Carron, patients will leave with a natural, youthful appearance. When BOTOX is injected properly, the patient is able to express emotion and communicate using facial expression in a natural and beautiful way.
Does BOTOX Hurt?
BOTOX is administered through multiple shallow injections. Most patients describe BOTOX as a slight, tolerable pinch or poke. No local anesthetic is required before BOTOX is administered.
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
Patients generally start seeing results in just 24 – 48 hours, achieving their best skin around 10 days after treatment. Results typically last up to 4 months before another treatment is required.
Is BOTOX Safe?
BOTOX is FDA-approved, which means it has been through the clinical trial process and proven to be both safe and effective. Side effects include discomfort at the site of injection, vision problems, dry mouth, eyelid drooping or swelling, dry eyes, and allergic reaction. These are uncommon and generally resolve quickly.
Who is Qualified to Administer BOTOX?
Any doctor who is trained and experienced can administer BOTOX Cosmetic. Patients should take these primary factors into consideration when choosing a doctor:
- The doctor should be trained in the proper administration of BOTOX Cosmetic
- The doctor should be experienced in BOTOX administration and able to show before and after photos of his or her own patients
Other ways to find a qualified doctor are to consider word of mouth from friends and family members, read online reviews in advance, and ask the provider to provide references who are willing to share their experience.
