Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable that minimizes the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face. Physicians Weight Loss Clinic uses this cosmetic treatment to eliminate furrow lines and crow’s feet.

The injections work by paralyzing the muscle under the skin, which prevents smiling or frowning from creating deeper folds. Botox doesn’t cause you to lose feeling, nor does it limit your ability to make facial expressions.

Are Botox injections safe?

Yes, Botox injections are safe. Botox has been used to treat the signs of aging for more than 20 years and maintains a long-standing safety record. If you experience any side effects, such as redness or swelling, they’re usually mild and disappear quickly.

That being said, you should only receive Botox injections from trained professionals, like the experts at Physicians Weight Loss Clinic.

What can I expect during a Botox treatment?

Botox injections are quick and can be done on your lunch break. During treatment, your aesthetic specialist at Physicians Weight Loss Clinic precisely injects small amounts of Botox into your facial skin. You may feel a pinch during each application, but the pain is fleeting.

The number of injections you need depends on the area being treated. After your treatment, you can go right back to your daily activities, and even apply makeup. However, you should refrain from strenuous exercise for at least two hours after treatment and avoid rubbing the injection sites.

It may take up to seven days for you to see the results of your Botox injections, but the benefits last up to four months.

How often do I need Botox?

Unlike other types of cosmetic treatments, you only need one session of Botox to see results. However, Botox isn’t permanent and you’ll need to come back every few months for touch-ups.

The frequency of your touch-up visits depends on your needs and goals, but you can receive more injections as soon as you notice the effects of your Botox wearing off. Regular Botox injections thin the muscle underneath the skin, which may help your treatment last longer.
