Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is one of the most well-known and popular cosmetic injectable treatments available today. It restores a more youthful look to your face by temporarily relaxing the muscles that are responsible for some of the most bothersome facial lines and wrinkles. 

Forehead lines and crow’s feet often appear as the result of repetitive facial expressions. Botox contains onabotulinumtoxinA, a neurotoxin that safely relaxes the muscles responsible for these facial expressions for up to four months at a time.

When muscles are relaxed, moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles fade and skin looks smoother. Botox is FDA-approved and delivers reliable, consistent anti-aging results for men and women.

What signs of aging can Botox treat?

Botox works for moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions, including:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead lines 

There’s no magic age to begin Botox treatment; it all depends on the severity of your lines and wrinkles. Some people may get Botox at the first sign of wrinkles as a preventive treatment to keep them from becoming more severe later on.

For other lines and wrinkles, like those that form around your nose and mouth, consider injectable facial fillers to replace volume that your skin loses as you age.

What is the procedure for getting Botox?

The Pacific Eye team works with you to determine if Botox is right for you. Your anti-aging treatment plan is customized for your face and your desired results.

In general, Botox appointments take just 10 minutes from start to finish. Many patients report that injections are comfortable and only feel like a small pinch. There’s no downtime with Botox, but you may experience minimal redness at the injection sites. 

When you come to Pacific Eye for Botox, you’ll receive a series of injections in your desired treatment area. The number of injections depends on your goals, and it ranges from five injections for forehead lines to six injections for crow’s feet.     

With Botox, you can expect subtle, natural-looking results. You’ll begin noticing minimized lines in 24-48 hours following your procedure. Botox is meant to last four months, so expect to continue treatment to maintain your younger-looking skin. 

You don’t have to live with forehead lines and crow’s feet that make you look older than you feel. Find out if Botox could be right for you by booking a consultation at Pacific Eye by phone or online today.
