Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a popular cosmetic injectable that’s FDA-approved for wrinkles and fine lines. Once injected into targeted areas, Botox prevents muscle contractions that lead to folding and creases, effectively addressing signs of aging. 

Botox injections can treat existing lines and wrinkles but also prevent new ones from developing because it interrupts the nerve signals that cause the skin to contract.   

What areas do Botox injections treat?

Botox has a wide variety of uses in the cosmetic field. You may benefit from Botox injections if you have:

  • Crow’s feet around your eyes
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • “11” lines between the eyebrows
  • Drooping eyebrows*
  • Bunny lines on the nose* 
  • Chin puckering*
  • Drooping mouth corners*
  • Gummy smile*

Botox is also used for medical purposes, such as treatment for temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), migraines, excessive sweating, and more. 

Can I still make facial expressions after Botox treatment?

When Botox injections are administered by highly experienced specialists like those at Beauty Planet Laser Aesthetic Center, you’ll still be able to have full facial function and be able to make expressions as normal. 

The team uses their skill to create the most natural and beautiful outcomes, so you won’t have to worry about having a lack of emotion or “frozen look.” You can still smile, frown, and experience the full range of expressions after receiving Botox. 

What do Botox injections feel like?

Botox injections are well-tolerated by most people. However, to minimize any discomfort, the team at Beauty Planet Laser Aesthetic Center offers numbing cream. 

After ensuring your comfort, they perform Botox injections, targeting the areas of concern that you have. You may feel a sting or quick pinch during the treatment, and slight redness and swelling following the session. Many patients don’t require numbing cream because it’s often not needed as Botox treatment is quick and seamless. 

Does Botox have any downtime?

Botox doesn’t require people to have any downtime, and in fact, many schedule the treatment during their lunch break. After getting Botox, you should avoid massaging your face as the treatment can spread to other areas and lying flat for at least four hours. 

The team at Beauty Planet Laser Aesthetic Center also recommends avoiding intense exercises or workouts for the remainder of the day. You can return to your normal routine after that. 

When will I see results from my Botox?

Neuromodulators like Botox usually reduce wrinkles and lines for about 3-4 months**. After that, the team at Beauty Planet Laser Aesthetic Center offers retreatments to maintain your look.

The effects of Botox are noticeable after 24-48 hours, with full effects showing up after 7-10 days**.
