Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injection made of an FDA-approved neurotoxin that reduces common signs of aging. It’s a nonsurgical, highly effective method for relaxing facial muscles that cause smile, frown, and laugh lines. 

The Island Aesthetics & Dermatology team has many years of experience, and your provider is highly trained in administering Botox injections.

What are the benefits of Botox?

Botox helps treat the following:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Other lines and wrinkles
  • Lax skin
  • Aging skin
  • Square jaw
  • Lip lines
  • Lines near your mouth
  • Neck bands

The procedure smoothes, tightens, lifts, and improves the overall appearance of aging skin to make you look and feel younger without pain or downtime. 

Additional uses for Botox include the treatment of lazy eyes, eye twitching, migraines, and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).

Is Botox right for me?

Your Island Aesthetics & Dermatology provider examines your skin, reviews your personal and family medical histories, and asks about your desired results before tailoring a treatment plan best suited to your needs. 

Anyone can benefit from Botox and dermal fillers. Your Island Aesthetics & Dermatology specialist may combine Botox with dermal fillers to achieve more impressive results. 

What happens during Botox treatments?

Before Botox injections, the Island Aesthetics & Dermatology team can numb the treatment area, if needed, to make the injections painless. They clean your skin and inject Botulinum toxin just beneath the skin in multiple areas. Each injection usually takes a minute or two.

What should I expect after Botox injections?

After Botox injections, there’s no downtime needed. You can resume your usual daily routine immediately. It’s important to avoid rubbing the treated area for a few hours to reduce the chance of spreading the Botox toxin to other parts of your body. The injection sites might be swollen, red, or tender for a short time.

During the next 4-7 days, you can expect the results of Botox to take effect. Treated skin appears younger-looking, tighter, smoother, and less wrinkled. Botox results often last about 3-4 months. When its effects wear off, you can undergo repeat injections at Island Aesthetics & Dermatology to maintain long-lasting anti-aging results.
