5 Things You Need to Know About Botox

Correcting the early signs of aging doesn’t always require a surgical solution. Injectable neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau are an excellent alternative treatment to correct early aging signs like crow’s feet, frown lines, smoker’s lines, or other distracting creases.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryan Armijo administers Botox injections with mastery and quality care, ensuring complete patient comfort and satisfaction. Conveniently located at three different locations, he makes treatments quick and accessible while always producing beautiful results.

If you’re considering the benefits of Botox, here are 5 things you need to know:

 1. How Botox Works

Botox smooths wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the small groups of muscles that cause them. When Botox is injected around the eyes and forehead, it blocks nerve signals and prevents the muscle contractions that cause those creases. After treatment, these muscles no longer become active when making a facial expression, which means no more creases in the skin.

2. How Is Botox Administered?

When administering Botox injections, a topical anesthetic may be applied by your injector, depending on your preference, to prevent any discomfort. Through a tiny needle, small amounts of Botox are then injected into areas where wrinkles are present. For most people, problem areas include the mouth, brow area, temple, and forehead. It’s most likely that you won’t feel a thing due to the anesthetic cream we provide and our optimal injection techniques.

3. How Long Does a Botox Appointment Generally Take?

Botox is so convenient that a session can be completed on your lunch break with time to spare to actually have lunch. Botox appointments generally last between 15 minutes to half an hour depending on how many injections you require, and you’ll be free to resume your normal activities immediately after your treatment.

4. How Long Does Botox Last?

Botox typically produces visible results that can last from three to four months. However, after several Botox treatments, most patients only need to receive maintenance injections once every five to six months. This is because repeated Botox injects train those muscles to relax and produce fewer wrinkles.

5. What Are Some Amazing Benefits of Botox?

For most patients, the most significant advantage to Botox is the minimal downtime. Patients also report being drawn to Botox because of the low risk of complication. Though most people turn to Botox to fix aging signs, Botox has many other significant health benefits: treatment for chronic migraines, facial tics, TMJ, excess sweating, and more.
