Botox Q&A

What is Botox?

The cosmetic injectable Botox temporarily reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, particularly on the forehead and around the eyes.

Botox is crafted from a purified form of Botulinum toxin. This neurotoxin temporarily halts the muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles to form when you make expressions, such as smiling, squinting, and frowning.

Botox offers a softening of your appearance, so you look younger, less stressed, and more relaxed without appearing as if you’ve had “work” done.

Opulence Modern Medical Artistry also offers Dysport® if Botox is not a good fit for you.

Is Botox a proven anti-aging treatment?

More than 98 countries approve of the use of Botox for cosmetic purposes, including the United States’ FDA. The product is well-studied, with more than 528 studies standing behind its safety and efficacy. Millions of people use and trust Botox.

What should I expect with Botox?

Botox smooths areas that commonly acquire wrinkles due to expression, including:

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Worry lines between your eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet around your eyes

Your provider at Opulence Modern Medical Artistry may combine Botox with dermal filler injections around the mouth and nose to give you a comprehensive youthful look. Following treatment, you can go back to all your normal activities – no downtime necessary.

When will I see the results of Botox, and how long do they last?

The beneficial effects of Botox injections start to show within 24-48 hours. You notice your full results in about seven days post-injections. The wrinkle-reducing effects of Botox last three to four months. Scheduling regular follow-up Botox injections at Opulence Modern Medical Artistry helps you maintain your look for the long-term.

Do Botox injections hurt?

Botox treatments last just 15-20 minutes. Your provider uses a very tiny needle to place the injections, and you will feel a slight pinch, but most people tolerate treatment quite well. If you’re concerned about discomfort, talk to your provider about receiving a topical numbing cream prior to injection.

You receive customized Botox injections, but you can likely expect three injections at the area around your eyes, five injections between your brows, and five injections in your upper forehead.
