Botox® Injections Questions and Answers

You’ve probably heard about Botox®, and maybe you’ve considered getting it for yourself, but maybe you’re not sure if it’s right for you. At Prestige Med Spa, we take the time to get to know you, your goals, and your concerns, and together, we will decide if Botox® is the right procedure for you. In the meantime, keep reading about some common questions regarding Botox® before your book your complimentary consultation with us!

What is Botox® and what is it used for?

Botox® (OnabotulinumtoxinA or botulinum toxin type A), is an injectable derived from the botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that is responsible for botulism. As scary as this may be, Botox® is perfectly safe and is FDA approved not just for the treatment of wrinkles, but also for muscle spasms, migraines, excessive sweating, hemifacial spasm, and many others.

When properly administered by trained, skilled, and experienced medical professional, Botox® subtly and effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by muscle contractions, or, or “active muscles,” which contract when you smile, squint, frown, etc. Botox® works by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles, effectively temporarily paralyzing the muscles so they can’t contract and create wrinkles.

Is Botox® safe?

Yes, Botox® is safe! Botox® contains a very small dose of the botulinum toxic and is backed by over 15 years of clinical studies. Botox® is well-researched and tested and is approved for cosmetic use in 96 countries! If you are considering Botox® for treating fine lines and wrinkles, you can trust the science and track record of Botox®. However, we will always consider your unique situation and circumstances before recommending a specific treatment at Prestige Med Spa, so be sure to ask any questions you have or voice any concerns you may have in your complimentary consultation.

When will I notice results?

You will start to notice results within 7-14 days, which will last up to months. After a few months, you will start to notice movement coming back to the muscles that were injected, so you will likely require additional treatments. The treated muscles will begin to be “trained” as you receive Botox® injections, and you will notice that treatments will start lasting a little longer.

What should I expect from a treatment?

Botox® treatments take about 10-15 minutes. It is relatively painless, but some patients do report feeling a pinch. The best part, though? recovery time is minimal and easy! Just avoid laying down for 4 hours and no strenuous activity for 24 hours. Thats it! 

How many injections will I need?

The number of injections needed differs for each person. Each person is unique and has unique goals, so the areas you need to be treated, the number of injections you will need, and the appropriate treatment for what you want will be discussed with you in your consultation. Botox® is the only injectable approved for the use on crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines.
