Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injection made of botulinum toxin type A, which is a neurotoxin that blocks nerve impulses to facial muscles and relaxes them. The result is fewer wrinkles from facial expressions, such as smiling, squinting, laughing, and frowning.

What is Botox used for?

Botox injectables reduce the appearance of:

  • Forehead creases
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lines near your mouth
  • A cobblestoned chin

Because of fewer fine lines and wrinkles after Botox injections, your skin looks smoother, tighter, and younger-looking.

In addition to wrinkle reduction, medical uses of Botox include relief from bladder dysfunction, excessive sweating, lazy eye, eye twitching, and chronic migraines.

What should I expect during Botox injections?

An aesthetics expert at CFP Physicians Group reviews your medical history, examines your skin, and lets you know if Botox or another cosmetic injectable is right for you.

Prior to Botox injections, you’re given the option of a topical anesthetic to numb your skin and make the injections more comfortable. Your doctor injects a botulinum toxin solution at strategic points beneath the skin to produce optimal anti-aging results.

You might feel a slight pinch during the injection, especially if you opt-out of a topical anesthetic. The procedure is quick and easy, as it takes just minutes to complete.

What happens after Botox injections?

After Botox injections, you can resume normal everyday activities right away. Your provider may ask you to avoid strenuous activities for the rest of the day, however. Common side effects from Botox include:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Mild bruising

You won’t notice the cosmetic effects of Botox immediately, but your final result should appear three to seven days after the injection. Wrinkle-reducing results from Botox typically last three to six months. Your aesthetics provider can repeat Botox treatments when the effects wear off.

The physicians at CFP Physicians Group offer numerous other anti-aging treatments, such as chemical peels, facials, and PCA skincare products sold onsite, to give you the best possible results.

Don’t let aging skin make you feel less than beautiful when the solution is simple, fast, and painless. Schedule an appointment for Botox injections at CFP Physicians Group today, or use the online scheduler.
