Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox smooths the appearance of the skin by preventing constant, repetitive muscle movements. A specialist injects botox into the skin with a sterile needle to administer it directly to the facial muscle that moves frequently. Over time this constant movement deepens the appearance of wrinkles and contributes to an aged look.

You can look younger in a matter of minutes with a Botox injection. Popular wrinkle areas treated by Botox include under the eyes, forehead, and brow. 


Is Botox safe?

Botox comes from a protein produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. When dosed properly by a medical professional, the harmful effects of botulinum are circumvented. This makes Botox treatments safe and effective for any adult. 


Are wrinkles the only condition Botox helps?

While Botox most commonly treats wrinkles associated with aging, there are many other common uses for Botox, including:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • High hip lines
  • Excessive sweating
  • Misaligned eyes
  • Adjusting to new dentures
  • Overactive bladder
  • Uncontrollable blinking
  • Certain disorders, such as cervical dystonia

Botox is a safe and affordable way to improve your appearance; it can also be an excellent way to enhance your quality of life. In addition to treating several ailments, Botox is also used in chronic pain management. Speak to a DDS Concierge expert to learn how Botox can support your health.


How long does Botox last?

Botox’s longevity depends on a few essential factors. On average, you can expect the reduction of muscle movements treated with Botox to last three months. Some individuals experience the benefits of Botox for upwards of six months.

Botox treatment longevity varies depending on your muscle size, metabolism, and the amount of Botox you receive. The specialist providing Botox during your procedure can help gauge how often you should seek additional appointments.


Can I go about my day as usual after Botox treatment?

Generally, you can continue most daily activities as usual. It’s recommended to avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours after a Botox procedure. Avoid laying down within the first three hours and rubbing your face during the first 12.
