Botox Q & A

 

Botox

 

What is Botox?

Botox is a purified substance made from the bacteria clostridium botulinum. Rhiannon injects it into targeted areas on your face to correct lines around the eyes and on the forehead. 

Botox Cosmetic works differently than injectable “fillers” such as Juvederm® or Restylane®. Instead of plumping up facial lines, Botox temporarily paralyzes muscle movement so that smiles and frowns no longer result in deep creases. By preventing facial lines from forming, it can also prevent wrinkles from getting worse. Botox is an extremely popular and effective treatment for reducing crow’s feet and frown lines.

Is Botox wrinkle reduction safe?

Botox Cosmetic is safe when administered by a trained doctor or nurse practitioner, such as Rhiannon. In fact, it is among the most thoroughly studied medically-administered aesthetic treatments ever. 

More than 495 peer-reviewed articles in medical and scientific journals have evaluated Botox. In addition, the treatment has been in use safely in the United States since 2002 and has approval for cosmetic use in 96 countries.

What does the Botox process entail?

Botox injections take only minutes to perform, and patients experience no downtime. The needles used to inject Botox are extremely small, so pain is not an issue. 

If you’re afraid of needles, ask Rhiannon about having an application of a topical anesthetic numbing cream 30 minutes ahead of treatment. Results from Botox usually appear within 24 to 48 hours.

How long do the effects of Botox last?

Botox is a temporary treatment to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Results typically last 3-4 months, after which, you can receive retreatments to maintain your results. Rhiannon can put you on a regular treatment schedule.

What should patients look for in a Botox provider? 

While many health care providers offer Botox treatment, it is important to find a provider who is not only trained in the proper injection technique but has substantial experience. Knowing how much Botox to inject is essential to avoiding any problems and achieving optimum, predictable and consistent results.
