Botox Q & A
What is Botox?
Botox and other neuromodulators contain a purified version of a neurotoxin that temporarily weakens or freezes specific muscles by blocking their nerve signals. As a result, the lines and wrinkles that form when you squint, frown, or smile lessen so you gain a smoother, more youthful look.
Skin Shop medSpa offers Botox along with other FDA-approved neuromodulators, including:
Each formula provides slightly different results. After a thorough review of your skin complaints and goals, Dr. Su recommends the type of neuromodulator that’s best for your needs.
What aging complaints does Botox address?
At Skin Shop medSpa, Dr. Su uses neuromodulators to:
- Smooth horizontal forehead lines
- Smooth vertical lines between the eyes, known as frown lines
- Reduce the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes
- Correct a gummy-looking smile
- Ease the look of bunny line wrinkles on either side of the nose
- Correct “chin-ullite” bumpy skin on your chin
- Relax the masseter muscles to slim the look of your face
- Relax the jaw to reduce teeth grinding
Neuromodulators can also lessen the appearance of vertical neck cords.
What can I expect during Botox treatment?
Treatment with Botox and other neuromodulators takes just 20-30 minutes. Dr. Su creates a customized treatment plan based on your concerns, facial anatomy, and appearance goals.
Prior to your injections, Dr. Su cleans your skin and may apply a numbing injection to minimize any discomfort. Your injections are applied in precise treatment areas to get you the results you want.
You will feel a slight pinch with each injection, but most people tolerate the process quite well. You can go back to work or other daily activities right after your treatment.
How long do the effects of Botox treatments last?
You’ll start seeing the results of your cosmetic injections gradually, with the full results appearing after about 7-14 days.
The effects of Botox and other neuromodulators typically last 3-4 months, depending on the formula used, your personal metabolism, and the area treated.
When the effects of Botox or other neuromodulators start to wear off, repeat injections help you maintain your results.
