Botox Q & A
How do Botox® Cosmetic Injections erase the signs of aging?
Botox Cosmetic is an injection of highly purified botulinum toxin protein that comes from sources that exist in nature. When Dr. Burrell injects the Botox into specific locations on your face, it temporarily reduces muscle activity so your face appears smoother and tighter. Botox works well to diminish frown lines between your eyebrows and crow’s feet around your eyes.
Botox works beneath the surface of your skin to target the underlying muscles that cause crow’s feet and frown lines to form over the years as a result of squinting or furrowing your brow. Most men and women notice results 24 to 48 hours after treatment, and the fine lines and facial wrinkles will appear smoother and firmer for up to four months.
Is Botox safe?
Yes. In fact, Botox Cosmetic is the only approved cosmetic procedure for the temporary reduction of moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet. It’s also been the subject of extensive studies, and is one of few medical aesthetic treatments approved for use in over 70 countries. The safety of Botox has also been evaluated in clinical trials and in more than 400 scientific and medical journals.
Dr. Burrell is a board-certified ophthalmologist, so you know you’re getting the best possible care when you come to her for cosmetic procedures like Botox, which is the number 1 selling product of its kind in the world.
What can I expect during and after a Botox treatment?
Many women and men who get Botox injections describe it as a small pinch. If you’re concerned about discomfort, you may request a topical numbing cream so you don’t feel anything at all during treatment. The whole injection process only takes about 10 minutes, so any discomfort is temporary and usually well tolerated.
After the treatment, your skin may be a little red, but that usually goes away in a few hours. The goal with Botox is to look like yourself, and be able to show expressions, but with a younger-looking appearance. You can return to your daily routine immediately following a Botox treatment.
