Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable treatment for treating moderate to severe lines that form on your forehead and the crow’s feet that appear around your eyes. The injection is made from purified botulinum toxin, produced by a specific type of bacteria.

Unlike other aesthetic injections, Botox targets the muscles that are responsible for your frown lines and crow’s feet. 

Through a series of precise injections, the Skin Glow Medical aesthetic providers deliver Botox into certain areas of your face to help relax the muscles, temporarily paralyzing their movements.

As muscles relax, your skin smooths out, reducing the severity of wrinkles, lines, and creases.

Why should I consider Botox?

Botox injections are an option to treat wrinkles and creases that age you when you’re not ready for invasive surgery.

The Skin Glow Medical staff customizes your treatment plan to address the issues that bother you most and ensure that your results look aesthetically pleasing and natural. 

The Skin Glow Medical aesthetic team is extensively trained in Botox injections to ensure precise placement of each injection to achieve your desired results.

Botox treatments are quick, with many in-office treatments lasting 10 minutes or less, making them the perfect lunch-time treatment for enhancing your appearance. You can return to work or other activities immediately after your injections, with no downtime.

Side effects of Botox injections are typically minor and you can expect to feel some tenderness or notice bruising at the injection site. 

How long does it take to see the results of Botox injections?

Following your Botox injections, you may notice an immediate difference in the severity of your forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. However, it can take up to 14 days to see the optimal results of your Botox treatment.

As everyone is unique, your Skin Glow Medical provider discusses with you how long the results of Botox will last based on the severity of your wrinkles. Generally, Botox provides results that last for several months before you need to schedule maintenance injections.
