Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a purified, medical-grade form of a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This injectable medication has been used for years to effectively treat medical conditions and to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and facial creases.

When your provider at Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center injects Botox into specific muscles, it blocks the nerve signals that make muscles contract. As the muscles relax, the wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movement over the years are significantly diminished or eliminated.

Botox is most often used to treat moderate-to-severe wrinkles such as:

  • Forehead furrows
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet (wrinkles at the outer corners of your eyes)

However, Botox also effectively treats:

  • Excessive underarm sweating
  • Chronic migraine headaches
  • Muscular disorders (such as dystonia and spasticity)
  • Bladder disorders (such as overactive bladder and urinary incontinence)

When Botox is used to treat facial wrinkles, your doctor at Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center carefully targets a few muscles responsible for the wrinkles you want to treat. Since most facial muscles aren’t injected, you still maintain all your natural facial expressions.

What should I expect during Botox treatment?

Botox is administered using such a tiny needle that most patients feel minimal pain and don’t need a topical anesthetic. The injections only take a few minutes, and when your session is finished, you can return to your normal activities. Though you don’t need to schedule downtime to recover, you should avoid strenuous activities for several hours.

You may develop slight swelling and redness, but these side effects don’t last long, and you can cover them with makeup. Additionally, you may have bruising if you take aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or fish oil, or you consume alcohol in the 24 hours before your Botox procedure.

When will I see results after my Botox injection?

You’ll see the results within seven days, and then you can expect to maintain the results for three to four months on average.* When your results start to fade, you can get another Botox treatment, if desired. Some patients find that their results last longer with successive Botox treatments.

The team at Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center offers great pricing and excellent Botox service. You can also receive special offers and exclusive invitations, and earn discounts by joining their Brilliant Distinctions® Program.
